When I grow up, I want to ride as fast as Rachel !!!!!!!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:08)
And after that you can retire to DH ????

That cours has about 10 more chutes than my entire home trail system
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:27)
I love Rach, but I think that was filmed with a potato.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:43)
Totally! Blurry, too bright and some weird bugs in it... what camera was that filmed on?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:02)
: try changing the settings to HD?, crystal clear on my computer once done so
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:32)
: I'm sure she has the latest GoPro ... Gopro has gone backwards since the hero 4
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:53)
: Its Youtube... It starts processing it once upload is finished. It compresses it and makes it potato quality... The only way you can make it look good when the image is moving in sports shots is to film it and render it in 4k. Everything else lower resolution gets a big quality hit.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 8:49)
: yah. My 3 black is still mint
(Sep 8, 2018 at 13:23)
: You are watching it on a potato.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:09)
Holy crap is she fast! What else is there to say?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:35)
Claudio got it wrong
(Sep 8, 2018 at 16:52)
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:25)
Rachel is sick quick!! Shows how good the girls are. Banging track ... Sunday is gonna be epic.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:52)
To be honest I thought I actually looked really slow. Was something wrong with the camera it seemed to be really slow then all of sudden speed up in places and also cut out.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 8:10)
Yes, she cleared all the big ones where you need full speed. The problem is that Go Pro Previews often don't show the steepness, speed and the distances of the real track. For riders who know that course it is a totally different experience to watch the preview. I'm stoked.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 8:24)
: Fair enough.. the footage just seemed a bit weird like it wasn't recording right
(Sep 8, 2018 at 8:54)
The riding is great but the footage is strange. Way to bright. Not the best advertisement for gopro.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 9:58)
: the over exposure means you can't see any of the details zip by. Rach is flying down but without reference points to judge the speed by it almost looks like she is barely moving in some spots.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:12)
: To get the big, fat picture GoPros flatten out the perspective, which is why the videos never look as steep and gnarly as it really is.
At least that's what I tell everyone who watches my videos!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:15)
Pretty large jump to close it out, great looking course for the world championships!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:00)
That tree at 2:17. I think my sphincter tightened on Rachel's behalf!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:11)
Hahaha for real , I thought she was plowing that at Mach speed. She was on a serious tear. Would like to see POV race runs.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 11:56)
Same with the one right after 1 minute... stomach clenching.
Edit: and 2:36. No kidding... there were a few scary close calls
(Sep 8, 2018 at 12:20)
She is very fast. She can probably do more press ups than me. But what’s her game plan to an offspinner? Can she sweep? What’s she like through the V?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 21:28)
Its just not cricket billy, it's just not...
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:06)
Dayyymn girl! Just the queen doing her thing.
(Sep 10, 2018 at 5:36)
Sick run, imagine her a full out race speed.
Is it just me? some of the riders stopped on the race course at pretty stupid spots, to watch lines or ??? Especially the one at 2:31 who stops in the middle of a jump? Lucky no one hit them with their bars.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:52)
Video down now?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:04)
Welcome to Switzerland
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:38)
I wonder why all the xc content was available, even the rb livestream, but not the dh?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 11:29)
: most of the time in surprised if the official video IS available
(Sep 8, 2018 at 12:37)
Do we have to blame SRF??!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 19:37)
There was a left hander that Luca took outside. I think Luca's line was faster on that left hander. In a couple other cases, it looked like Rachel took a faster line.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 13:49)
sorry...but where is Ben Cathro?????.......
You Atherton`s you´re a wounderfull bike rider´s family.....but WHERE THE HELL IS CATHRO?.....THIS IS CATHRO analysis IDEA
(Sep 9, 2018 at 2:02)
(Sep 8, 2018 at 8:42)
Damn she is fast. That step-down at the end is huge.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 9:20)
Mad fo speed so she is. Wat a great athlete she is absolutely smashing everything.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:51)
Loved the video but ive become spoiled I now like my course previews with commentary. Kinda bummed on that , but her riding was supberb.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:24)
This looks like an awesome track
(Sep 9, 2018 at 3:45)
a real man's track we could say
(Sep 8, 2018 at 13:39)
That track looks ridiculously fun.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 22:57)
No Link to the UCI DH Livestreams on RBTV, no Cathrovision?
Am I missing something?
P.S. Awesome run Rachel!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 23:17)
oh....just saw this now:
Thanks UCI for sabotaging your own events by pure greed!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:26)
Like a fucking boss!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 6:12)
That looks like such an awesome course. I loved how many inside lines there are.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 23:52)
dear Red Bull, get Ben Cathro to do course preview please!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 15:19)
Does anyone know who is streaming the race live?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 20:50)
In NZ, Sky TV Otherwise red bull if you use a VPN
(Sep 8, 2018 at 14:04)
They really did go to the discount whistle store for the marshalls.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 12:11)
They do all of that in 3min!!!??? :O
(Sep 8, 2018 at 12:49)
cool the jump at 2:15 we'll see if they all pass...
(Sep 8, 2018 at 11:06)
How do I change this to HD?
(Sep 8, 2018 at 9:00)
She is a bad girl!!!
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:37)
Awesome course, awesome riding, shit camera.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 15:34)
(Sep 8, 2018 at 5:59)
When it’s dry it’s one the best courses on the circuit, little bit of everything.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 10:18)
Sorry but prefer gee's preview
