 curious...is that the distance huck where rachel injured her achilles?

 @53119: 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.

 @thingswelike: last step down before the finish she said on IG

 We need to know who is the trail bike shredder and how far off in qualies?

 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!

 Honestly if Redbull televised their race runs i think it would be at least as entertaining as the 'main show'

 Just all round great footage showing the riders and the track more than ever in the past.

 It might be pointless but no one has tried to use winter tyres with spikes to manage those damn off cambers?
  • + 2
 Shorty conditions.
  • + 1
 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.

 The HAT is back. NOOOOOOO HAHAHA

 Sooo good, thanks ben for this series! Love seeing those comparison ghost runs. Keep it up!

 pretty sure it is one of the last jumps with the tiny downslope, which she missed and landed to flat.

 This was so epic

 So what's the craic? He can film as much as he wants now? I may have missed some chat.
  • + 1
 Yeah, there was some misunderstanding at the start of the season so Red Bull spoke to him and cleared things up.
  • + 1
 @dingus: 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

 Is that last jump the one which took out Rachel?
  • + 2
 Rachel hurt herself on the flat landing of the final drop / step down into the finish area, not the long jump fly off.

 @ddmonkey: ah, i see, thanks!

 I prefer Gee's line.

 @muyguapa still think you don’t need dh bikes??
  • + 11
 Tbf the guy on the Giant Reign was clearing the step down better than a lot of those on DH rigs.
  • + 2
 Yes, I do. DH, XC, Enduro, whatever bike floats your boat. They'd all bottom out on what is essentially a huck to flat.
