 Emil so smooth and stylish, as good as swedish design can get. Adolf and Bienve on the other hand are pure Barcelona party. Huge respect to all.

 Bienve has a flawless run then backflips and rolls in the dirt, getting his nice white jersey all dirty. Fail!

 This needs to be the future of DH coverage. Please bring drone follows to raceday!

 @yoobee: I think it 100% would be rad, but one shot, the whole way down with the drone out of sight would be tough for 50+ riders. They need some sort of AI autopilot, I'm sure its coming...

 @RadBartTaylor: I hope so, too. But it's a problem with live broadcast - there's usually more than one rider on the track. And you would have to race the drones back to top. You would need several channels and monitors to watch Big Grin

 @RadBartTaylor: Top riders where there are big gaps will take care of the out of site issue. The AI i not needed they pilots aren't watching the drone they are flying via the camera. Just give them plenty or time to practice the course too.

 Was that freeride? It was bad@$$, but wasn’t that slope style on bigger jumps?

 You're totally right. Rampage has become the same.

 The runs are insane. The drone pilot skills are insane. The combo is unreal.

 I'm going out on a limb here, but me thinks a computer might have been piloting.

 The footage is awesome. As someone who watches "fest" type events with a equal parts awe (the size of the jumps is just mental) and boredom (no too much into trickology), I find these images really cool. They show you how the rider behaves and moves on the bike, on the ground and in the air. Really cool.

 This is not freeride. It's amazing riding and an amazingly built course and amazing drone capture, but there is nothing freeride about this. Even the individual athletes are posting their own videos calling it freeride, but this is slopestyle.

 Do we need a new name for slopestyle on a downhill bike? Downstyle, slopehill?

 Best use of FPV drones I've seen to date. Amazing that this is captured in such detail, without all the swoopy spinny drone tricks, it felt like the riding was the focus and not what crazy stuff the drone can do. Well done!

 Lots of talented riding... but I would argue that these are all the same 'line'- no freedom of line choice offered/exercised. Just different 'runs' down the same track.
