THE PRIVATEER: WALK THE TALK

EPISODE 8



It has been a season full of ups and downs for Ben Cathro. A pandemic, a newborn, and a broken neck shook up Ben's plans for race domination. As the season winds down, we take a look back at the crazy year and a small look forward to what's next.

We'd like to extend a huge thank you to all of the sponsors who supported this project.

 Good god I would honestly contribute to a crowd funding campaign to make that happen. (With the condition that Yoann is on the Donut).

 Being an old fart I have watched every episode and love the vibe no hype real attitude to life, racing and everything bike. The absolute gem was when you helped out all the privateers you could, that was pure gold! Good luck with the plans and I look forward to what 2021 brings from Cathro and Crew! Love it best series on PB by miles pure unadulterated love of life and riding ! Cheers

 The series has been so so good. Like many before me have said, Cathro and the team have put out some gold this year (of all years). I'm really looking forward to more of this in 2021.

 Such a good series! A bit of light in a dark year. Really hope he gets a go at a world cup next year. Would be rad to see him getting back in the mix. Would have been even radder on a pink Orange 339 a la MTB cut days, though I'd probably take the v10 if I had the choice!

 The fact that Ben could potentially do CathroVision AND a privateer support team at the same time is a huge opportunity for PinkBike. Obviously, he can't manage a full team on his own. Particularly while doing CathroVision. But if he could be a spiritual coach and racing connection for some of the privateers who maybe can't have family out or don't have much in the way of coaching, I would watch that series EVERY. SINGLE. EVENT.

Basically CathroVision but less focus on the line splitting and nuances that may or may not come to fruition on race day (changing conditions and all), and more focus on how these privateers feel. What behind the scenes struggles they go through to perform at their best. Ben could be so much more but he will be too humble to ever realize it. Just needs a little push.

 I really hope Ben gets another chance. I would really like to see how he fares. He is one of the guys I look forward to watching on Pink bike.

 I met him at Snowshoe in 2019 during the world cup. He's the same in person as he is on the camera. Can't wait to see what he's up to for 2021.

 These vids have been awesome. Ben probably appeals to the slightly older age group as he's a well rounded bloke. This is the kind of content we need...
