Met Cathro working trackside at Leogang on Sunday - said he been upto 3am that morning and would be the same again that night to get these out asap. Top bloke

He’s an absolute machine. Whole event team is—photo guys too.

So wish Greg would have won. Need to see at least one more win by him, a top spot for Brosnan, and a dominating win at world Champs for Gwin. That would make my world cup world happy

Last year aaron seemed like he was going to win his 21st wc so long ago and greg was struggling. Now the opposite, aaron is struggling for that elusive 21 and looks like he is going for one rather soon!!

When riders are using your videos to help them win you know you have a great product! Whether or not it made the difference for Bruni, we won’t know. But it does speak to the confidence your audience has in your analysis. Great work Ben!
(Jun 9, 2019 at 18:28)
When Bruni pedaled hard and early out of the stump section I thought: "Must have watched Cathro's analysis"....and lo and behold!
(Jun 9, 2019 at 21:00)
Loic's run was probably the most accurate and controlled I've ever seen. It looked like a virtual rider overlay to show what the optimum way to ride the course would be.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 9:38)
Loïc - rebound-ed for the win!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 15:00)
it was so cool two years ago in Andorra, right after a loose Danny Hart on the edge all time Bruni pulled a similar super composed run to make virtually the same time. Danny faster by .01, amazing!

Great piece as always. I like the observation of Brosnan and the stumps. Seems like any race that has them, he just floats over them like they aren't even there... Makes it look so easy....(I think he is usually the first one that goes OVER them..)
(Jun 10, 2019 at 0:44)
There's that famous stump on one of the tracks that only he bunny hopped clean over on the first race, next year everyone was doing it
(Jun 10, 2019 at 3:05)
: It was Lenzerheide... Uhm... 2017?
(Jun 10, 2019 at 4:10)
I think 2016? was the first year in Lenzerheide.
(Jun 9, 2019 at 23:14)
Starting to really enjoy these, wasn't convinced initially but Ben is coming across really well now, and the lad is no dummy when it comes to commenting on line choice etc.. Loic's admission was witness to that..... Well done, bring on Andorra :-)

I’m just here to say that Pierron I’m stoked for. Anyone that is that chill and competitive at the same time gets my vote.
And that’s coming from a Gwin fan.
Props to Cathro for the video! Thoroughly enjoyed!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 7:00)
Cathro is awesome! I hope he's making some $$ from doing this, and I hope there's some funding for all of his travel and equipment. This stuff that he puts together is mint.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 8:50)
Santa Cruz are funding the whole thing, he did a pre season video about their deal together.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 13:57)
: Awesome! Thanks for the info. I didn't see the pre-season vid.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 16:46)
yep we’re paying him for his excellent work. His videos for us are also separate from his Santa Cruz program.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 0:31)
: Excellent work indeed.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 7:32)
I watched Greg's run 3 times and every time I felt like he was going to win. Fingers crossed that he and Gwinn are competitive for the rest of the season, seeing them and the French guys all at the top of their games would be awesome. Ohh and Danny Hart looks like he is going to win something this year as well.
(Jun 9, 2019 at 21:05)
great race, greg was on a serious tear for sure! and a well deserved win for tracey and big ups to nina!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 5:32)
Favorite part of the weekend for me was seeing Luca in the top 10 again. Great confidence builder for him. Always pulling for the east coast crew...
(Jun 10, 2019 at 5:53)
Love hearing what is going on in the junior division. keep that coming.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 8:16)
All good but particularly interested with the Bruni stability bit. He does look incredibly stable on the bike
(Jun 9, 2019 at 19:03)
Subtitles for Greg but not for Loic? :-P
(Jun 9, 2019 at 22:31)
Probably due to the background noise, I can hear Loic just fine but cranking up the volume for Greg's section will probably get me rude stares in the office - the background music is so loud.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 9:46)
Now I want an entire episode on Bernard Kerr’s final jump before the finish. It broke my brain!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 14:16)
Man that was a moment, thought he was going to end up in traction
(Jun 10, 2019 at 1:41)
Finally some serious post race analysis. Ben for everything.
(Jun 9, 2019 at 21:59)
Is that a Hightower LT on Cathro's shirt?
(Jun 10, 2019 at 9:47)
Could be..he partnered with the syndacate now!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 10:20)
He rides/races Santa Cruz bikes.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 1:56)
A couple of dodgy edits but Cathro is fast becoming a go too. Good for him, and especially good for us.
(Jun 11, 2019 at 1:47)
Top quality insights as always. Thanks Ben
(Jun 11, 2019 at 1:54)
Went back and watched Kerr's Cathro spec roots section. Pure genius
(Jun 10, 2019 at 3:39)
Favorite part: That kinked jump they all went sideways on.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 0:30)
Great job as always ben! Keep it coming! But i'm sure the photographers would appreciate some credit for the pics!
(Jun 10, 2019 at 2:08)
They probably got paid
(Jun 10, 2019 at 5:22)
This is a Pinkbike video and the photos are all owned by Pinkbike, no dramas. Andy Vathis, Nathan Hughes, Ross Bell, Dave Trumpore & Matt Delorme were the photographers and their photos were bloody lovey.
(Jun 10, 2019 at 9:55)
: It just raced my mind that they deserved been mentioned... I appreciate the fact, though.

I clicked stop at "Kate".

: Ethics I guess.
