Video: Luca Shaw Course Preview POV - Lenzerheide World Cup DH 2019

Aug 8, 2019
by Sarah Moore  


After two days of torrential rain everyone was a bit dubious going into today's practice session... But things dried up pretty quick, allowing Luca Shaw to take you on a Burgtec hot lap, showing you a few of the new sections on the now infamous Lenzerheide track!

 No commentary during the ride? Can we get Gee back?

 Since video always seems to flatten a course when I watch it, the fact that this looks steep? Wow! This mutha must be way steep... Unreal riding....

 Question: it looks like Luca drives over a pole at 2:47, but the pole is tipped over so he doesn't go over the tape, I guess that is legal, but I am not super familiar with the rules around the pole and tape in UCI DH. Can anybody enlighten me?

 Same with the pole at 3:08 - Ben Cathro discussed that with Amaury Pierron in his track walk video and Gee calls this a 'cheeky move' in his preview run. Now that the talk is there I hope the UCI clarifies this prior to the race!

 That was awesome. Kind of wish we had riders POV during the race

 My dream is that it will one day be like NASCAR coverage with views changing between external course cams and 'cockpit' cams.

 Sitting at work: "I'd love to be a pro-downhiller".
After watching this: "I'd love to be a pro-downhill spectator".
Radical shit, best sport in the world.

 He was breathing out of his a$$ after about 1 minute - suspect is mere mortals would be dead by that point

 I thoroughly enjoyed that. Honestly enjoyed the preview with no commentary.

 I would love to see Luca Shaw puzzling with Jordi. He's been missing in the Fox tent.
