 Stick with a chase drone, camera on a stick bouncing around is never gonna make for a watchable vid, needs to be smooth flowing high res, this is pish

 With practice runs being at such a premium I feel sorry for Jackson wasting one of his with a pole stuffed down the back of his pants.

 Bad idea, someone make sure that device never enters the pits again.

 hey they're trying something new, it's not working now but with improvements it'll get better, we used to tape betacams to our helmets when i raced Elite DH, give it some time people, patience

 Next time they should try pedal cam. Should be more watchable

 These 360º cameras are the worst! They are flogging these down our throats via YouTuber sponsorships, but they are the worst! Sorry Jackson, couldn't watch.

 It's not vertigo-inducing to me, it's just choppy and, while it's a unique perspective, it's not an interesting one. But they tried something different and we get nowhere without such efforts.

 These angles are terrible. Just give us a normal GoPro view of the course

 Syndicate need to upload the raw 360° video on to YouTube, so you can watch it in VR...would probably look less Riders Republic?

 uuuuuum. Whose idea was that?

 Eyes bleeding, no for me dawg!

 How anyone involved said “Yes, let’s post this, GREAT marketing!” is beyond me.
  • 2 0
 Any filming equipment that affects the riders performance is going to have a greater negative effect than the novelty of getting a cool angle.

 You can actually make this kind of mount yourself, with garden stakes and a lot of gaffa tape Smile but yes, the pitching and rolling is rather hard to rectify...

 Get this behind a paywall so I can’t see it.

 GoPro: makes things looks smaller
Redbull: hold my beer, we have the technology to make things look even slower and even smaller.

 The angle is really good to let you see the features of the track, much better than a helmet cam. But the bouncing and movement is unwatchable.

 FFS, follow him with a drone next time, please!
