Hucking awesome! Like being kids again with a ramp and some bricks! ha ha
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:09)
curious...is that the distance huck where rachel injured her achilles?
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:13)
: No - she said she did that pretty well 20secs before the one that got her (jumping twice as far as the closest woman). She said the one that got her was a very flat landing and a shitty jump.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 6:15)
: last step down before the finish she said on IG
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:08)
ooh its so oldschool DH, very good to see it nowadays, skillz needed! it will be awesome MX match!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:38)
Awesome footage, so much fun to watch the long jump contest, should be a world cup staple
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:34)
who's that fella
on a giant with a bottle? gotta keep the weight distribution I guess?
(Jul 12, 2019 at 18:32)
We need to know who is the trail bike shredder and how far off in qualies?
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:33)
Great to see the slower riders on the course, giving us a term of comparison and a greater insight of the difficulties on the track. Keep it up Ben!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 8:06)
Honestly if Redbull televised their race runs i think it would be at least as entertaining as the 'main show'
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:31)
Just all round great footage showing the riders and the track more than ever in the past.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:58)
It might be pointless but no one has tried to use winter tyres with spikes to manage those damn off cambers?
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:36)
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:47)
That's what mud tires and cut down versions are used for. But the dirt underneath is probably too hard, which is why everyone is sticking with dry tires.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:32)
Aw man, ive not seen these videos before. Thats super interesting analysis of the wooded section. Thumbs up.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 6:35)
Love this series Ben.....the commentary and footage give great perspective of this track. It’s gonna be a banger!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 5:24)
The HAT is back. NOOOOOOO HAHAHA
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:38)
Sooo good, thanks ben for this series! Love seeing those comparison ghost runs. Keep it up!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:21)
pretty sure it is one of the last jumps with the tiny downslope, which she missed and landed to flat.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:54)
I prefer Gee's line.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:47)
man, this is gona be sick !!!! Thanks for the video !!!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 5:22)
That was good fun, cheers guys
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:17)
Is that last jump the one which took out Rachel?
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:33)
Rachel hurt herself on the flat landing of the final drop / step down into the finish area, not the long jump fly off.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:36)
: ah, i see, thanks!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 5:55)
THIS is Downhill.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:06)
So what's the craic? He can film as much as he wants now? I may have missed some chat.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:15)
Yeah, there was some misunderstanding at the start of the season so Red Bull spoke to him and cleared things up.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:52)
: I'm making this up but it seemed like it got put down to a "misunderstanding" rather than deal with the backlash from fans as every red bull thing that got posted was getting spammed with cathro comments. Either way it's worked out well for him and us
(Jul 12, 2019 at 9:57)
This was so epic
(Jul 12, 2019 at 12:23)
Incredible coverage Pinkbike! Unreal between Cathro and Elliot ????
(Jul 13, 2019 at 10:53)
I think Bernard actually beat Bruce....
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:01)
still think you don’t need dh bikes??
(Jul 12, 2019 at 2:15)
Tbf the guy on the Giant Reign was clearing the step down better than a lot of those on DH rigs.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:31)
Yes, I do. DH, XC, Enduro, whatever bike floats your boat. They'd all bottom out on what is essentially a huck to flat.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 8:56)
"bush bonk" hahaha
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jul 12, 2019 at 3:35)
How do you complain about Leo gang but get hyped on les gets? Looks like they’ve forgotten to build an actual track panicked and taped up a ski slope about two days ago.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:15)
Because one is a bike park and the other is raw
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:19)
You just described the best part of 90s World Cup racing and trust me, some of us are ready for some 90s racing. This one's for the old school! This is from the era when we raced DH courses and not "tracks", no one talked about "doing laps", and riders weren't wearing F1 pit crew suits and clown costumes to race bikes down mountains.
Let's see these park rats keep it at Mach 5 on the off camber turns. But it's an "easy" course, right?
Can't scrub your way down this track, kids!
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:44)
: I’m not complaining. I’m excited for the hill bomb world champs.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 4:47)
: leogang is my favourite race of the year and the track looks awesome and I’m excited for this as well but still need to ask what happened to the dig team? Has anyone found them yet? I’m worried sick.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 5:59)
Not sure why you're getting a hard time about this comment. It looks like they taped up a ski slope and added a few badly designed jumps for everyone's amusement. I suspect there are going to be some bad injuries this weekend.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 7:06)
: someone found a rusty steel girder on the track walk just laying on the grass.
Yeah that’s exactly what they’ve done. It’s a poor course but I think it’s going to be a really good race mainly due to how committed they’ve got to be to do well.
(Jul 12, 2019 at 7:10)
: this is all a bike park..? les gets bike park????
(Jul 12, 2019 at 8:08)
: Yeah but it;s a typical French bike park. They build a trail, do no maintenance. Close trail when it gets too f*cked. Build new trail, do no maintenance. Rinse/repeat.
