 Drone follow cams should be the norm, such a good way to see whats going on. Would love to see a live feed of WC DH events in that format.

 Drone or even a couple wire cams would be sweet!

 or even just a replay of top 10

 It’s good until there are trees involved. Then the best you can hope for is to follow in close and not crash.

 @DrPete: that's why I suggested wire cam Wink

 @DrPete: To bad the tech wasn't better with the Mavic pro and the Follow Me Mode. But be sick when the time comes that we can just send a drone to follow each rider.

 I love that part, when you see all these videos they make it look so easy but you don't realize how much precision and how a fraction of a second can cause a huge crash. That part shows you how much focus these guys have.

 @jonder91: That one rider near the end over shooting then on the brakes before the next big hit is a good reminder that it's not just pin it and send it.

 Video editor: Please don't slo mo the entire time a rider is in the air and then cut away right before they land. We want to see the landings! Some of these jumps were sent so deep that the bikes had to have flexed and twisted upon impact.

 Friday fails compared to this is a nice dose of reality in showing just how talented these riders really are.

 UCI needs to do a drug test to see who was poppin them pills, because we don't care

 I believe Aliens is the technical term. And I agree

 I gotta say, that put a big green on my face, I can barely take a step down, the feeling in these jumps must be awesome...
  • + 1
 Why is there a line of garbage bins at the bottom of the last big jump? I feel like that's right in the way of where someone could crash.

 Keep doing your thing, Darkfest!

 So has GoPro given up on the Karma Drone and just started attaching their cameras to racing drones??

 Yes, Karma was total junk.
