 This guy is so skilled on a bike and on a track, this "expert" eye on each round is great!
Maybe he could be the new Claudio? ????

 Claudio isn't dead you know.

 @tb927: He's probably not going to be doing course preview stuff anymore though

 How about a Claudio and Cathro preview? Claudio is not dead but it looks like it may be some time until he gets back on the DH bike. Let Cathro take over until then. And Reb Bull needs to allow more than just a 3 min video. Do they want to promote this sport or not? #Cathrovision

 @Boardlife69: He said in his latest vid, that he's in talks with RedBull. I hope it works out for him and us!

 Cathro visioooooooooooooonnnnnn. ( system of a down )
This guy is cooler on beer (who's not)
Cathro join rob and claudio please

 He can never be Claudio. He has communications ability, thinks really hard about the track, and lets a huge audience in on the secret complexities at the top of the sport. He is the Joe Rogan of DH.

 Just limit Claudio to Rampage previews so we can keep him healthy.

 Carhrovision has rapidly become one of the best things about dh wc.. Waiting for VdS to congrats you in person and drop you a beer..

 Drop him another one on my behalf! Lets raise some money to see cathro wasted trying to explain this and that and throwing stones to wyn ha ha

 I have to get my arse to Scotland for a clinic with Ben before he gets too busy and too expensive... because his latest analysis is just amazing. Best in the business. By far.
  • + 11
 Would definitely recommend his coaching sessions.

 Scotland is well gid. Mind the haggis though, its mating season June-September, they get damn aggressive.

 Ben's track walk is something that Redbull could support, because we don't have something like that. It would add a new dimension to these races.

 More great analysis from the giraffe. Ben has brought through some talented riders, Henry and George of Propain were both with Ben until they signed for Propain, I would bet that especially now they are benefiting from Ben's input and insight as a racer. Good on you Ben, you have been the 1 elite at the Scottish rounds that has pretty much always been there. Good luck for the future and I hope that someone snaps you up for the technical insight into the tracks.

 Been mentioned before but if everyone on Pinkbike hasn't stepped over to subscribe to Cathro's YouTube channel yet you need to asap. Simplest way to help support someone who is completely deserving. Subscribe, like his vids, donate, and you'll get great returns like this.

 @dro-cfr: unfortunately youtube money is shit

 @Asmodai: it all depends on how many people click on the ads, or watch them for 20 seconds

 @jaame:
not really, youtube add money is really bad nowadays
channels with 6 milions subs gets like 700k sub views because of terrible YouTube algorithms

you need some kind of external sponsorship in order to make decent money from YouTube
  • + 8
 @Asmodai: I agree, YouTube money is crappy for most but, if Cathro gets a lot more subscriber it makes him a more attractive talent for media companies like Redbull. I'd love to see what he could do with more resources.
  • + 6
 @Asmodai: not the point - more subscribers on Cathrovision == more exposure and success, more deals with red bull and bigger networks, and eventually income streams that have nothing to do with youtube!
  • + 2
 @weirc: Redbull should hire Cathro for track preview (riding) and track analysis. Best in the business... sorry Claudio.
  • + 2
 @Asmodai: Good, youtube should be a shit way to make a living. It should take sponsorships. Maybe that way we'll get more cathrovision, bxkc, skills with phil, and less bullshit with people slapping people in the face with fish.

 @LoganKM1982:
there is nothing wrong with people slapping people in the face with whatever

you dont like that content? dont watch it
its supposed to be free platform, and if your content is shit then you either wont get viewers or your views will be worth less than A+ channel

 @Asmodai: I watched one yesterday which was the Russian face slapping championship. Literally these guys are just taking it in turns to slap each other. Some of them are massive guys too. Really good video.

 @Asmodai: on his patreon he is currently raising money so he can turn off ads on his youtube page to cover his travel expenses

 I think he is a super sound guy and I hope he gets the red bull course preview gig.

On the other hand, it will never cease to amaze me how people have the time or the inclination to film themselves walking up a hill with absolute camera. He had to walk up, put the camera down and point it down, walk back down, then walk up whilst drinking beer, then do same two or three times at different sections of track. I mean honestly, how can anyone make a job out of that? Is he really getting paid off these kind of videos? Is anyone? I mean, is he making more than he would if he had a normal job? Is it enough to pay a mortgage and feed kids?

Not hating, just perplexed by the financial viability of such a job. There are allot of people doing it, but is it a job, or a hobby?

 He's like the Aragorn of mountain biking. If you ever need to track hobbits kidnapped by orcs on mountain bikes he's your man.

 @Boardlife69:

I'd like to fly, but my wings have been so denied.

 Really good. Before and after commentary. This is good for the sport.

 The greatest assets Ben Cathro has, alongside his supreme technical knowledge, are his positivity and general all round niceness. He’s like absolutely no Scotsman I have ever met before ????

 Yeah, cos Danny MacAskill is pretty much Frankie Boyle on a bike. Drop the stereotypes.

 You are a fucking clown mate. Way to generalize an entire nationality. Ditch the bikes and go to a golf course where attitudes like yours are welcome. You man-opausal wretch
