Video: Yoann Barelli's EWS Madeira Race Runs with Commentary

May 14, 2019
by Sarah Moore  

After a mechanical on day one in Madeira and a 99th position on the third stage, Yoann Barelli decided to focus on having a good time on the second day of racing. That included this POV run down Loic Bruni's Gamble line while running commentary the whole time. Remarkably, he finished 40th on the stage, despite all the chit chat!

As a contrast, here's his Stage 6 race run, where he still talks to himself, but is definitely working a whole lot harder. He finished 18th at 9 seconds off the win on the stage.

 It was more him thinking out loud about what he was doing, rather than the commentary we have become used to, but I still loved it. What a sound lad he is.

 I felt the same but it was rad to hear the rhythm of the commentary with the track from a pro. Love that guy

 Dude is loud AF but seriously his positive vibes and outlook is so just too hard to ignore.

 Generally I don't like loudmouths. They are generally just looking for attention. But Yoann is one of my favourite guys on the circuit. His passion for what he is doing is so infectious and I would say he is genuinely a fun guy to be around. Go Yoann

 @dh1stan: Yoann strikes me as one of those guys who's completely clean, no booze, drugs, caffeine, even vegetarian - but whom just amps himself up by amping himself up - a little self-contained hyper machine. He's also a bit a performer - likes putting on a show.
