 Redbull was smart to get Eliot on board to do this. He's got the rider's perspective, incredible knowledge of the stats and arguably the best attitude out there, what a class act.

 With Cathrovision and now Eliot we are entering a new age of World Cup coverage!
  • + 11
 This is way better than all the interviews at a supercross race (where way more money‘s involved)
  • + 13
 Yeah with this, Cathro and the RAW vids (plus all the pics) we are really spoiled for coverage, what a time to be alive!
  • + 19
 Elliot + Cathro: Team Geek for the win!
  • + 11
 Plus with his personality he's going to get the best rider interviews for sure.
  • + 8
 @Clarkeh: I was thinking the same thing, he and Wyn are such bright and funny personalities they get riders comfortable and laughing. Gets the best content, so pumped to see Elliot on this side of the operation.

 Eliot is a BOSS. I dont want him to stop racing, but I also want way more of this from him.

 Damn that was legit.

 Love the infectious laughter Eliot! What a trooper - great coverage and interviews. Funny wih Atherton’s awkward laughing thoguh - not the natural laugher that one
  • + 2
 in case you're interested, listen to this interview
one of the most interesting rider's interviews I've ever heard

 Not usually a commenter, but this quality of coverage as much recognition as possible.

 Agreed. Great stuff.

 Great job on this video. Good insight into what the riders are looking for in a track and really funny interviews! Would love to see more of those with Eliot !
  • + 20
 Great perspective Eliot , more please...
  • + 12
 Eliot is for sure one of the nicest dudes out there. Every time that someone release a podcast, interview, video or whatever with him is a great time and now we gonna have this every world cup race... this sport just make me happier and happier every day : )
  • + 16
 That was cool ... nice to see the riders open up to Eliot as well
  • + 14
 Superb. it's great to see how relaxed the riders are when met with a huge smile and fellow pro!
  • + 10
 Eliot awesome! Now that we've lost the laughter of Claudio, we needed another pick up. Eliot's positivity, repoire with riders and teams, and his hands on experience all contribute to a worthwhile, entertaining, and informative watch.
  • + 12
 That was awesome. My daughter wants to see more women interviews and footage

 Great interviews and coverage. Eliot is such a chill and positive dude and you can see the riders getting stoked talking to him. This, plus Cathro and Wyn TV = awesome!
  • + 9
 I wish Elliot was racing but his commenting skills and ability connect to the riders is top notch! Cheers!
  • + 7
 If this was anyone but Elliot I'd be "Why isn't Cathro doing this for RedBull!?!?! Grrrrr"............but Elliot is the nicest guy on the planet so I'm all aaahhh he's awesome.
Can we have both on the official stuff RB?
  • + 9
 What a treat, this we. Cathrovision for the technicalities, Elliot for the rider's perspective. keep it up, RB.
  • + 5
 Dear Redbull, This was pure entertainment, it was great!!! But I would have enjoyed it just as much if I'd had 5 other perspectives as well. Letting Cathrovision and others do some proper filming isnt going to detract from anything. The mtb community will watch them all and chances are those new to the sport will only watch it on youtube a week later or stumble across it by accident on Redbull TV. PLease share the love
  • + 6
 I think Elliot has another career avenue if he decides the risk of racing isn't worth it... awesome job to everyone involved that was highly enjoyable from a viewer/fan perspective!
  • + 7
 Excellent job Elliot. Please do an after race wrap up video
  • + 4
 This is an excellent addition to CathroVision. We are able to see so much more of the track in detail between these two. Looking forward to watching Ben and Eliot all season.
  • + 2
 Sick. Love the longer shots of riders. Elliot does an amazing job, he knows what questions to ask and understands how to pull extra info out of the riders. So nice to hear interviews that are not the same questions with the same answers. Its also great seeing these AND the stuff Cathro is doing. It all adds up to a great week of racing!
  • + 4
 very well done. Eliot puts the other two on theirs toes hopefully... I like Warner but I think the other guy should stick to pump tracks moving forward.
  • + 5
 Oh no Redbull,Troy has a MONSTER logo on his helmet!!!!!Time to blur his head out.
  • + 4
 Eliot also has his project, which is really amazing as well. Going to be a great season of racing for sure! worldcup.eliotjackson.com

 Love it! Can't wait to watch Eliot before every race. Best insight ever!!
  • + 1
 Really cool content which fits well with Cathrow vision. While Bens content is on the scientific/analytical side of riding, Elliotts is more personal and focused on the emotional/mental experience for the riders. Awesome contrast without poaching Ben's work. Plus Elliott's clearly so stoked to be there.

 Hey Eliot what I want too know is about tyres, I have been using plus tyres for a year or 2 & I know that I am faster on them
So why do most riders use 2.3 tyres?
  • + 2
 Would be interesting to see who's using the biggest tyres on the circuit.
  • + 1
 I would imagine that too much volume would act like uncontrollable undamped suspension, plus the difficulty of supporting the sidewalls through corners at those speeds. It may well be that cushcore-type tire inserts will allow larger DH volumes than previously seen.
  • + 1
 @err0r: Cushcore allow for higher pressures & add more dampening, but will be less air in there?
  • + 1
 @aljoburr: Yes. It's not exactly a 1:1 displacement of air by cushcore since there's air inside the closed cell foam structure, but that air is independent of the tire air and experiences a different force:pressure curve. Essentially the air in the foam acts more progressive than the remaining air in the tire and acts like it has much more high speed compression and rebound damping due to having to move the (relatively heavy) foam structure.

 Elliot is great!
Bring us more of him

 Always a pleasure to see this outstanding attitude from Eliot. Great to have the riders perspective from Eliot and Ben´s insides combined as coverage upfront, great format from both!
  • + 1
 Great stuff Elliot! Together with Ben C and the Fox Diales Series we are spoiled this year. Now we should have Nathalie Schneiter also commenting men's downhill instead of Claudio and it's perfect.

 I've forgotten how chill the mountain biking Community is while watching Supercross this winter. I'm so glad WC season is upon us.
  • + 2
 Love this. Thank you to everyone involved.

 This was fantastical, keep them coming....beyeahhhhhhh!
  • + 1
 Would like to know how much/little the riders use the brakes and at which parts of the course
  • + 2
 If I'm remembering correctly, Eliot discussed this in a podcast (downtime maybe??) about data acquisition and testing. It was really interesting to hear from a WC racer about panic breaking and being aware of it and trying consciously not to and/or not even being aware of it at the time he's actually doing it.
  • + 1
 @Buzzyny: thanks for that. wonder where I could find that.

 'what are you trying to achieve in timed training?'...…. ' have fun'....if he didn't do well in the race I would sack him, probably a good thing im not a team manager :-)

 Watch the new Cathro video, he explains it.

 If Red Bull was limited to 3 minutes of footage then the live feed wouldn't be much of a spectacle.
