 The Mtb gods have answered. Now all we need is Warner to commentate blind drunk

 If Warner doesn't commentate, McCaul or Tippe can.

 this is not mountain biking... this is just a tv show for teenagers.

 I like Warner a lot more without drinking in the booth and screaming. When I watch the old freecaster stuff...I realize how obnoxious it was. Too much over other people with some gems mixed in. I liked it back then...now...not so much. fwiw.

 Great job Claudio!! massive balls.. just missed the canyon gap.. i could feel your adrenaline rush through the computer

 You should try those lines MojoMaujer... No? Didn't think so, pussy.

 definitely no French lines...

 @pancakeflatted I don't think we need drunk Warner back, I just want uncensored Warner.

 This coming from a dude who doesn't even have a pic of a bike on his profile let alone a pic of him riding a bike!!! That screams to me that you know nothing about mountain biking and are probably a depressed troll that has nothing better going on in his life lol
  • + 52
 @mojomaujer you must be fun at parties
  • + 11
 @mhoshal -- To be fair, it could just mean he doesn't care to ask people into the woods to take photographs of him riding a bike. I wouldn't blame him. And, true or not, his comment is pretty funny!
  • + 16
 @mojomaujer...maybe a recumbent bike with mtb tires would be more your version of mountain biking.
  • + 24
 how do you join a dh team when the team manager hits rampage lines? absolute mental.

 @MojoMaujer is hosting Rampage......in his pants......... while playing world of warcraft....

 looks like nobody is there when Claudio was there, except that one guy. Is it possible for some people to sneak in and drive there before rampage?

 There actually is a god...My professor just canceled the class on Friday that would've prevented me from watching the finals

 Wow apparently you get downvoted when you call out a troll I wasn't talking about Claudio morons!!!!!
  • + 2
 @mhoshal

part of the problem was that nobody knew who you were talking about. use the @ button!!!
  • + 381
 I actually thought he was gonna hit the canyon gap for a second!!
  • + 31
 ohh, maybe not...
  • + 26
 So did I!! Was shouting "Go on Claudio!" at my screen Smile
  • + 86
 When he lined up for it I must admit I felt scared for him but I was like no way, he's actually gonna do it the mad bas*ard!! Then he stopped hahahaaaa. :-)

It looked awfully big when he stopped at the top of the ramp didn't it? Not enough credit goes to these guys. Bad stuff
  • + 28
 Me too. Felt so scared for Claudio...
  • + 3
 Baller!
  • + 1
 hahahah 1:26 epic
  • + 4
 Looking at Tom van steenbergen all balled up in his front flip you can tell just how GIANT that jump is. And you can hear his voice quiver in fear at the top as he passes jumps.
  • + 9
 It seemed like he was riding that top ridge so slowly, but then I realized that I had just watched McGazza's POV from when he backflipped the canyon gap. The two are hard to compare in terms of speed. Just goes to show how much the competitors (who may not even be used to riding a 20cm high risk line at speed) put on the line during the comp. Props to all!
  • + 2
 this something i hate/love about comments. i am always tempted to read them before i watch a video and sometimes i ruin the suspense Frown so when i saw the video, i was worried but not freaking too much out since i knew he wasn't going to hit the gap.
  • + 2
 He made it look so easy................
  • + 4
 I am totally amazed about that control, how he was 'mind the gap'. Hat off Claudio!
  • + 1
 Ha... He totally had me fooled too!
  • + 98
 LOL I can't believe he did that! The manic grin at the end seemed to be a 'I'm so happy I survived!' look if ever I saw one! Big Grin /respect

Huge props to the guys doing the real event at the weekend, hope they all have safe runs.
  • + 57
 This guy is what MTBing is all about. Singing over the jumps brilliant :-)
  • + 88
 Red Bull: "Right Claudio, we need to send you to Utah to do a course preview"
Claudio: "You mean for Rampage?"
RB: "Yeah and? we need a course preview!"
Claudio: *pauses shortly* "Um... ok but I'm taking the easy line!"

Props to Claudio!

 He was gonna take Aggy's but wasn't allowed.

 O_o When you realize that a pretty good rider like Claudio is still so frightened even on the easiest line, without clearing the biggest drops and jumps!! Thanks Claudio for your bravery, that was very instructive and entertaining! Big Grin Man, Rampage is mental.
  • + 16
 Yea its really puts it in perspective (if it wasn't already) how crazy it is. Claudio is a very skilled rider who we see handle crazy shit on the WC tracks with ease. And he's shitting his pants. It reminds me of a few years ago, maybe 2012 when Mik Hannah was invited (his first time I believe). There was a video from practice and it showed him & Gee riding and scoping out lines and at one point they stop and Hannah says something to Gee along the lines of how crazy and scary everything is. This was coming from one of the best world cup riders in the world and he was literally scared by most of the terrain.
  • + 45
 Riding in vans old skools... mad props claudio, mad props
  • + 37
 Claudio's about to break Pinkbike...
  • + 34
 Oh Claudio, I am glad you are still one piece!
  • + 2
 Right?! I'm already excited about 2016 course previews.
  • + 27
 Refreshing to see the line this way as its usually a blur and piece of cake for the riders and I lose appreciation how bad ass it is. Seeing Claudio crap his pants at the starting line and lay therr at the end is the best. I hope he has more humor for the less extreme UCI DH course previews after what looks like a life altering event for him.
  • + 2
 I'm sure he will, that man could never, ever lack stoke!
  • + 21
 That took some serious "stooones". There wouldn't be an easy enough line for me to do that!!

I bet Dave Grohl would get a BIG kick out of Claudio's version of Times Like These! Bravo Claudio...
  • + 6
 I got a good laugh when he stared to sing that haha.
  • + 22
 pov of that canyon gap jump is just silly
  • + 20
 That top section never stops looking sketchy! Huge props to Claudio for making it down!
  • + 20
 Somebody just went and neg propped every comment so far!? Must be pissed they changed the finals to Friday
  • + 6
 Not gonna lie, I'm pretty upset. I took Saturday off work for this!
  • + 3
 Sorry to hear that dude!
  • + 2
 They scheduled it again in monsoon season when the weather is totally unpredictable, a month earlier and it would be 115° out there. I'm 350 miles away and just saw it's supposed to rain the next 5 days here.
  • + 20
 I was hoping to see Aggy waving a pickaxe at him if he strayed too close to his line
  • + 12
 Seeing Claudio squid down really puts how hard these lines are into perspective
  • + 10
 I call for a RE RUN ... HE was not following anyone, pouching lines. HOPE & PRAY he does the commentary for the event. Thankyou Claudio for this.. just when you think you were out they pull you back in..
  • + 2
 there is a local dh-race on saturday in switzerland, where he is racing / set a time to beat, so he will not comment at rampage
  • + 11
 Hero! And, what's next Claudio? You've previewed downhill, XC , and now Rampage....
  • + 14
 Not to mention crushed ice...and XCE

 next stop, Fest Series

 There's just enduro left........ Lol

  • + 3
 @MojoMajeur Must really suck being a insecure self loathing troll such as yourself. Stop talking shit on the forums acting tough hiding behind the safety of your computer. People like you are nothing but keyboard warriors acting tough on the Internet because of the anonymity it offers you. How come every comment you post on pinkbike has been down võtted? That was a rhetorical question. I know it's because you're a hater that trys to validate himself by talking crop online. How depressing. I'm in Nepal too. Will be in pokhara at the end of October. I want to ride with you so I can teach your pansy Ass how to ride a real mountain bike. Pussy Ass hater

 Eh, my guess is, he's probably just aged out... In some cases, the older you are the less you get it, and the less you get it, the more bitter and cynical you become. Some people just do a better job of not being a buzzkill with their personal crap.

 lol @riwajc are you the guy was sending me emails?
i aint aged out and my strava times speak for me.

 Claudio has a way of making gnarly courses look fun and fluid. He was all business on that ridge without a clever quip in the quiver just showing the people out there how serious that rampage course is. Hats off Claudio. Your the man!

 Lovely article - one of the best things I've recently read, and by far the most useful. I was searching for a service to merge PDF files and found a great service. Merging files is super easy with AltoMerge. Try it on your own here www.altomerge.com and you'll make sure how it's simple. And also here PDFfiller.com
