 Why am I liking Gee so much more lately? He used to come across differently than he does now. Seems more human now. Am I alone?

 Totally agree

 He's older has a bit more perspective i guess. Also seems he's setting himself up for a future in broadcasting when he's done too. Doing a lot o stuff for redbull, he seems good at it too.

 He is the same guy, just under less pressure.

 Gee hasn't changed one bit. Everyone was down on Gwin while he was on Spesh too, Minnaar was never as respected as he is today, and many people always generally dislike Danny. Why? Because people hate the guys who beat their favorites (like Blenki, Bulldog,, Sik Mik etc.). Rat and Hill were the people's faves while Gwin, Gee and Minnaar were winning all the time, Those guys are gone. People are now rooting for likely winners (except Danny, which people and even sponsors seem to have difficulty grasping he is almost always going to be top 3). People also like to root for the bike they ride. The Demo is now cool with its odd look, so Loic is cool. Everyone can afford a YT and people generally recognize that the Session is the most copied DH bike in the past decade.

 @Rubberelli: I think back to his GT days when he was competing against Steve Smith. Never smiled and always looked tee'd off. Maybe he wasn't that way but appeared to be to me. AM I ALONE? That was for @pulDag

 @orastreet1: He did those analysis videos for Rad Bull this season and I'm pretty sure he never once smiled. He doesn't smile. Big deal.

 Could pinkbike send him on a plane to Utah and do cathrovision from Rampage just for the fun of it - like when Claudio did his preview a couple og years ago
  • + 7
 It's probably not as much his expertise but I'd sure be interested by such video. He could team up with a freeride veteran to analyse the riding!
  • + 29
 @t1000: He could team up with Randy.

 @hirvi: @boardlife69:


FWIW Randy Rampage was a founding member of Vancouver's legendary Hardcore-style defining band D.O.A. and I believe I read recently they he just passed away. I had the pleasure of pounding Molsons with him back back back in the day.

 I honestly find these videos as interesting as watching the event itself, and I don't even race. Good work Cathro.
  • + 6
 Ditto. His videos actually somewhat enervated my interest in watching WC DH again.

 @Rucker10: not the correct use of enervate

 @freestyIAM: invigorated!

 @Kickmehard: resuscitated

 @freestyIAM: ...I swear to god I typed invigorate. Goddamnit.

 @Rucker10:

Cathro's videos photosynthesised my interest in World Cups too.

 "Having a good rider (Minnaar] is key to being a good mechanic [Marsh]".

Loved the quote and the shout-out to the many other very good mechanics that have been on the circuit for ages but don't get noticed.

 That was my favourite bit.

 This guy needs full-on support. Redbull? PB? Anyone? He’s only going to get more popular someone would be smart to step up. As of this year I basically watch three things during season - Claudio’s preview, the race itself and now Cathrovision. And with Claudio out it’s just two.

The man shouldn’t be shelling out any longer to do these races in my opinion. He’s proved his worth.

 This is like picking up the last things at the house of your ex, a month later. Bitter sweet memories, what could have been, why did it end? So many tears of sorrow and forgotten joys, and the urge to hit it one more time.
