Warner's Course Preview - Val di Sole DH World Champs 2016

Sep 10, 2016
by Pinkbike Staff  

"Here's my go pro worlds course preview in its entirety that I did with @stevepeat and @claudiocaluori from my @gopro. If you've got half a day to kill check it out. Here, in no particular order is why it's not a winning run and I'm not one to make excuses.

- Firsty it was 7am (6am UK time) which is earlier than I ever got up.
- It was my first (second) run down ever.
- I had a cold.
- The brakes were the wrong way round (NZ style).
- Steve kept putting me off.
- It was dusty and steep and not easy to see even at the front.
- At one point a pack of hungry wild Italian wolves chased me up a tree.

Thanks to @commencalbikes and @georgebrannigan and his mechanic @ryanmfthom for letting me give his bike a damn good hiding. #peatysgotwood" - Rob Warner via his Instagram account


MENTIONS: @COMMENCALbicycles / @claudiocaluori / @GoPro

 This is is so satisfying, not just because it is so utterly entertaining and the three of them are pure gold together , but because all of us whiny Pinkbikers where actually delivered something we wanted! This is what the industry needs! Haha. Now that we have achieved this, here's a vote to include Peaty in the commentators box!

 Im not sure RedBull had anything to do with this one. No red bull video intro or outro, and not mentioned in the comments.

 The only reason it took so long to release this is because some poor editor spent the last 3 days censoring out all the expletives!!
  • 14 5
 I have issues with the CENSORSHIP in the year 2016
You can watch a guy fuk a donkey 24/7 and 2 chicks eating one nasty cup ........,
.........................and then sensor uninteligable English slang from git like Warner

you are all effen wankers.

 @madmon: I dunno about you but I'm kind of glad that stuff isn't on Pinkbike... I think I can live with the current setup.

 lmao brilliant it shows just how hard it really is well done lads for a brilliant video

 Yeah that's some riding many of us can actually relate to! Still faster than most of us for sure, but it makes obvious how much more difficult it is when you lose flow
  • 48 1
 @Uuno: The worst bit about Rob struggling so much and looking slow is that he is still more naturally capable on a bike than 95% (minimum) of everybody commenting on Pinkbike, he may not be fit and he may be rusty but the simple fact is that track would scare a lot of people into walking their bikes down, let alone riding slowly.

I imagine most 'normal' riders could just never find flow down a track like this, I have visited tracks that on headcams looks fairly ride-able or possibly easy - in real life they are plain scary.....- Looking forward to finals Sunday!

 Yes please! All three of them for each course preview. They're the Clarkson, Hammond and May of Downhill.

 @five5hot: The question is which top gear presenter is which rider?
  • 14 0
 @gcman47: Clarkson = Rob (the controversial loud one), Hammond = Claudio (the one yelling and screaming/doing the hard work) and May = Peaty (the one knowing what he is going on about)

 Too bad this wasn't actually Red Bull that listened. Since its World Champs, its actually the UCI in charge, not the World Cup where Red Bull is a main sponsor. Thats why its on the youtube player and not the super awesome Red Bull player.

 Lol - best ever - Rob Better get in shape because I have feeling we will all want to see more - lol
  • 11 0
 I think it was so good because he wasn't in shape. In future, he has to be woken up early after a huge bender, given a hot fish milk shake and then forced to go down the course.

 Warner for PM...He has maybe done more for British mtb than Peaty because of his loud mouth and charisma. I've been following downhill since the mid 90's and he has always been one of the biggest personalities in our sport. From the days of the Dirt video with JMC to Chainspotting and his notorious parties with Palmer to his commentary on freecaster and now redbull and setting up a successful bike shop in London. Credit where it's due. Although he now gets really scarred riding pro tracks like this he still has skills on a bike. I watched him ride last year at the BDS legends race and have seen him at shows and Fort William wc. The Soho Bikes interviews he does also show a relentless passion for the sport and a slightly more savvy side to his character.
