bigquotesBit of a disaster at the start of the trip with my bag and bike getting lost by the airline. We did the best we could and fingers crossed my kit arrives soon. Still, pretty excited as it's just started raining outside, practice is going to be wild!Ben Cathro

 Cathro could film this on an old Nokia and I'd still watch. Hope you get your gear back!

 Raced the masters there the previous week, was a little bummed they rerouted us into the trees....but very thankful now, it’s clear I would have died if we stayed on the World Cup course.

 Having watched it, the shorts don't harm the vid at all. Great work and great production team.

 Top notch as usual. Hope the camera appears for the ghosting though. Surely some nice freedom cameras can come your way?

 No comments from the Cathro cap haters rejoicing from the fact it got lost by the airline?

Great work from Ben as always!

 Is it okay to admit that after all this time, you've just figured out that the Cathrovision logo is actually a C with a camera incorporated in? Asking for a friend…

 Tell your friend the best logos have stuff to find, like the hidden arrow in the Fedex logo, or the hidden "Mom" in the Wendy's logo. Ben's is a great simple logo, very well done.

 Nice!...the unofficial 2019 Tour Divide t-shirt. I just picked one up at Walmart last weekend.

 @ajaypate1: That is correct. Frenchman Sofiane Sehili was leading and got stuck in a blizzard at night in the mountains...he decided to return to a lodge a few miles back. He and a few other strong riders were stranded at the lodge a few days. Sofiane decided to quite the race. He went to Walmart to get some street clothes and picked up the NASA shirt. A few other retired riders also purchased the shirt. I didn't ride the TD...I just followed it on Trackleaders. I liked the look of the shirt, so I bought one.
