Video: Absolute Insanity in France | Story of the Race with Ben Cathro
My two cents: The video coverage has been more complete this year than at any point in the history of televised DH world cups. Drone footage, while not perfect yet, will improve with technology and as they figure out how to use it. It adds a very different perspective, breaks up the constancy of panning shots in the woods, and adds context to the speeds these guys carry in the gnar and in the fast open sections. The drone shots also seem to allow them to change what angles are shown for different riders, so it adds variety to full race runs throughout the race. It has already improved throughout the year and will continue to improve. As for the commentators, it’s a bust compared to Rob and Claudio or Nigel, but bringing in guest commentators in the last two rounds has added a lot. If they are bringing in folks like Gwin and Wilson, it will make up a bit for the lackluster performance of Garcia. Realistically, he will probably be gone next year anyway. They are improving here too, so I am giving them the benefit of the doubt. As for the format with qualis/semis/finals, I say let the riders and teams figure that one out with the UCI. I am only going to watch the finals and am happy to pay GCN for the ability to do so. (Then I’ll watch the free SleeperCo edits a bunch of times). As long as the coverage continues to improve, I will happily pay. I think that there will always be growing pains as the sport grows and corporatizes, but in the end my hope is that the riders will get paid more and the sport will get better global exposure. I think that the PBers who comment here are core fans and have a lot of insight into the history of the sport, but for more riders to make a career out of this the producers and governing bodies are right to try to appeal to a broader market.
