These are the insights we are looking for. Please Redbull, pay the man, put together a long form 30 minute show about line choices, track changes, rider preferences and general Cathroness. It would seriously enhance the world cup viewing experience.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 8:57)
Couldn't agree more — you get a much better sense of the track etc. from his videos.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 8:59)
Plus his accent is dreamy Lol! Seriously good insight though, and very well presented.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:20)
: reminds me of the dude from Art Attack a kids show
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:22)
: This is an inside line, this is an inside line, THIS IS AN INSIDE LINE!!!!!!!! This is Cathrovision.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:36)
Absolutely agree. It's really cool to see how he breaks down sections of the track. He's also a talented presenter, top level DH racer and knows the riders/teams so he gets cool insights.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:57)
We've got Ben doing an Inside The Tape for us tomorrow, looking forward to it.

: please tell me your a girl or a gay guy,,,,dreamy !!

: Sign him up!
(Jul 5, 2018 at 13:09)
Totally agree. Cathro is fantastic, way better insight than the pre race coverage with Claudio and Warner. Should give the guy a chance commentating on the live feed too, see how he gets on.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 22:21)
To be honest I probably wouldn't watch it if it was half an hour. I like the content but I just don't really have the attention span for that. The new length is great though.
(Jul 6, 2018 at 4:52)
: yeah I think 10-15 minutes (a day mind you!) is bang on the money.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:58)
Hope Redbull can insightfully peel back the lame 3 min of actual practice, race, licensed content rules for Ben. Cathro's content increases the value of their product, helps educate the fan base and draws in viewers. It's good for the sport. More Cathro! Also, it would be rad to have Ben in booth or as a floating mic to interview riders. His knowledge would make for some stellar interviews, race insights and commentary.

I can't believe that I watched this this morning... someone fast forwarded it somewhere. Felt like 60 seconds and I wanted more. Another banger from Cathro. Who else shows soil samples in a track walk... awesome. Great videos Ben. Elite racer. Team manager. Coach. Helps out SDA with prizes and all around nice guy. Henry and George Kerr were under Bens tutalidge until they joined Propain and look where they are now. Testament to your coaching. The guys up here who have been on your coaching days loved them and got so much out of them.

Best pre-race content ever. As others have mentioned, this level of analysis and clear insight hugely enhances the whole experience of watching the event - also great for letting non DH WC tragics (ie my family) understand what’s going on, and helps bring a fresh audience to the whole shebang.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 12:10)
That was brilliant. More of this. An excellent insight to the race and what to expect. Seems like a real nice guy aswell. I could listen to him and watch this all the time. From this video you can actually get a good idea of what the track is really like. Well done.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 14:14)
Sign this guy up! No fluff, attitude, ego, and cosmetic techkry. Just being real and has legit knowledge. Rare to find these days!
(Jul 5, 2018 at 18:34)
As everyone else said. Obviously this is better than the other track walks. Give him some cash so he can do the rest of the season. Nice one Ben, high fives to you.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 12:38)
It's fine if it's just 3 minutes of practice footage so long as it's embedded in a longer video filled with analysis and talk within the pits
(Jul 6, 2018 at 6:44)
Excellent video, really showcases the flat out gnar of the course. Makes you appreciate what the riders are doing. I hope he can keep doing this somewhat independently. I disagree with calls for red bull to hire him. We'll end up with a watered down, over-produced advert video that will include some blonde sidekick to ask child-like questions to racers. Love the raw analysis, let's keep it that way.

That's a track preview
(Jul 5, 2018 at 11:42)
Proper track video, Cathro rules!
(Jul 5, 2018 at 10:28)
Great insight, thanks for this video bud!
(Jul 5, 2018 at 12:32)
Fantastic, keep them coming Ben
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:25)
Awesome! Great to see the whole track!

Ok Saturday is going to be epic, first The World Cup and then this.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 15:54)
Good stuff! Great track walk video, need more of this.
(Jul 5, 2018 at 11:27)
Love Cathros stuff. More please!
(Jul 5, 2018 at 9:41)
(Jul 5, 2018 at 14:20)
good interesting track walk. red bull - pay attention
(Jul 6, 2018 at 1:29)
love his videos, hate that hat, i really really hate that hat.
(Jul 6, 2018 at 12:15)
Maybe he's hoping his patreon thing will get him enough money to buy a new one.
(Jul 7, 2018 at 8:07)
good news he lost the hat on inside the tape
(Jul 5, 2018 at 20:27)
Keep it coming
(Jul 6, 2018 at 12:22)
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Jul 5, 2018 at 11:48)
I agree - Cathro is the ying to the yang of Claudio and Rob. Great insight, nice presenting style - very personable.
Can he replace Mr B Tippie on other events too?
(Jul 5, 2018 at 15:53)
And you started out so very well...
