bigquotesThe long awaited return to Fort William has come and gone, and what an eventful weekend it was. With the fastest riders in Britain eager for the win, no one would bet that Germany and France would come knocking on the podium door.Red Bull Bike

 A nice highlights video from a great event, but there was no analysis of physical demands, which was kind of a bummer.

 @Vincent66: and the edit cut all Pierrons powerhouse into the straight line and his words saying gave absolutely everything and he was so much in pain that last part...

 Ya they even started with that nice little Reece clip so I thought it was more than a secondary race recap. No interesting into about heart rates, no suspension data about how frequently it is compressing, no hyper analysis of the split times and key sections and who excels where... Nothin. Sigh

 @alicialegett Can you tell us more about that title ?
"Analyzing the Physical Demands of DH Racing at Fort William" has nothing with the title of the video nor it's content.
Was it the wrong video? The wrong title?

 Typical RB clickbait. Cool vid but no substance whatsoever. It's hard? No sh4t batman, its a WC race. But how hard? How can we as mere mortals try to understand that? Next time use narrative and context for your audience. Jeez.

 As soon as Kade got back on the bike after his crash, I knew he was gonna turn it into a party lap.
