I gotta admit, the drone follow footage is neat to watch, but that has to suck complete balls for the racers. those things are fucking LOUD!

Bernard Kerr was certainly getting irritated with the Drones at the IXS not a race.

: at leogang too

I think they're frequently drowned out by chainsaws and cowbells

: maybe they would be under normal circumstances but Red Bull and Crankworx have only started using them since the races had no fan at them. Even now the numbers of fans at the events is super limited. The drones would make it super hard to focus if you asked me. Even just knowing it’s there and if the operator made a mistake it could hit you during your race run would be hard to ignore.

I remember Gwin saying he rides with ear plugs and it kind of keeping it a secret because maybe he sees them as an advantage

I'd be happy if a drone pilot thought my run was worth filming! Wouldn't be annoyed in the least and I'm sure most pro racers are in a zone no drone can mess with.
(Jun 21, 2021 at 10:07)
Drone coverage here was some of the best I've seen. Bloody loud though!
(Jun 21, 2021 at 1:33)
Hope this is not a supid question: but why is there a skip after 20ish seconds? The whole 2:40 minutes run is shown in a minute. Don't they have cameras/drones throughout the complete track?
(Jun 21, 2021 at 1:50)
A poor coverage IMHO, looks more like a highlight than an actual race run.
(Jun 21, 2021 at 1:51)
No. Cameras are placed at the start and end of the race. The better-funded the event, the more time you get at the end. Unfortunately the middle is missed out unless the rider gopros and uploads it at a later time/date. Top 10 in a UCI DH usually get around 2mins 30secs of footage.
Crankworx DH isn't quite UCI DH standard but they do pretty well with their resources imho.

Assuming inflection thats a three banger A# 1= yes it is A#2= see question and answer #3. A#3= no they didn’t

Great coverage IMO. Crankworx coverage getting better every year too. Nice one guys.
(Jun 21, 2021 at 11:39)
: Yeah, a lot better than it used to be. Remember years ago when the crank works live stream was just showed the commentator with racers crossing the finish line in the background, and they'd say oh wow X goes into 2nd place. Now that was really not worth watching!
(Jun 21, 2021 at 13:58)
: I concur.
(Jun 21, 2021 at 14:17)
You could get some watchable footage with a new GoPro or even a iPhone , be better than nothing !
(Jun 21, 2021 at 15:46)
Perhaps the commentators couldn't think of more meaningless drivel to shout continuously over the footage.
(Jun 21, 2021 at 9:29)
The ghosted comparisons of line choices, starting at about 6:31 are pretty cool. I've not seen this done before:
(Jun 21, 2021 at 10:08)
Yes. Ben Cathro is new on the scene...
(Jun 22, 2021 at 20:42)
How can we not even get a full run for the winning highlights of these races. Like 2 mins out the window? comon.
