 Its pretty impressive to be able to speak when your hr is 192 bpm!
  • + 24
 Is that rate metric or imperial? Wink
  • + 2
 @aoneal: Probably metric, like the shocks these days. Pitty it's not multiplicity of 29 tho.
  • + 67
 That jump that kid put in mid way down the new section!!!!!
  • + 16
 yeah, he sent that tiny kicker about 20m down the trail. The kid was having a fun little chill ride, going slow, nose bonking and shit. Claudio was out of his mind as usual. Great fun

 So you can say shit but you can't say fuck

 My thoughts exactly. It's acceptable to cuss when quoting.
  • + 13
 See applicable south park.

 @bikekrieg:

You can do it it's all up to you oookkkqaayyyyyy

 @driftmonster: ITS "MMMKAAAY" YOU STUPID AMERICAN!

 "No f*cks given" is actually an FCC standard.
  • + 38
 Can someone get Claudio a f*cking gimbal already?! Every 12 year old youtuber has one...
  • + 36
 He did have a gimbal, his was just messed up
  • + 7
 He had it on the chest, but it was freaking out man they should have stuck to the headcam footy
  • + 58
 He would be more stable on a 29er
  • + 2
 A track as rough as that will through any gimbal out of balance you could see it jerking everywhere when they swapped to chest mount.

 @Drewnobi Exactly what I was thinking. I didn't even bothered to finish the whole video, just making me dizzy.
  • + 2
 He mounted the gimbal incorrectly. With the weight of a gimbal you need to attatch it to a second strap to hold the actually gimbal mechanism from shaking around. Not sure why he wasn't using the GoPro Karma grip btw?

 @ictus: or on 32...
  • + 32
 Am I the only one who thinks Claudio sounds like an Italian Grover from the Muppets?
  • + 17
 A Swiss Grover
  • + 2
 Grover is Sesame Street...sheesh. But I definitely always thought that a Fozzie Bear DH preview would go something like this.
  • + 19
 TRACK LOOOOKS DOPEEEEEEEEE

 Upper section is rather boring imo.

 @DuelingBanjos: the bit in the woods is the only interesting bit.
  • + 14
 I can assure you the upper section after the boards is savage not boring.
  • + 12
 Yeh - basically a 4 minute rock garden after the boardwalk (if you're as slow as me).

 @Furious-Styles: yeah, i don't doubt it's hard but i prefer woods.
  • - 3
 @tremeer023: after the boardwalk it starts to get interesting, i meant before that it's boring, def not entire upper section as it may sound from my first comment.

 New section look like a shitty bmx smooth track
  • + 15
 In Scotland and he isn't allowed to say the word f*ck ?????
  • + 2
 Well, you know it's accessible to 'Muricans, then...
  • + 6
 @cool3: no body GAF about 'Muricans though lol
  • + 2
 @poah: LOL!
  • + 12
 Gotta love the little "pop" in the new section to make the gap. Looks wicked fun!!
  • + 7
 He's back...Niice!! Funniest Claudia run in awhile!
  • + 1
 Besides that jump the new section was not a good addition to the track. Whats wrong with the world when they buff out the Fort for the best riders in the world? Whats next? Cutting out the lower wood sections in Saint Anne with the yummy rock gardens? So tired of tracks just going backwards, moar roots, moar rocks, moar off camber grass. Should be a rule of how many berms they can have per kilometer of track or something.

 If you want to sell new bikes, the new bikes have to be faster. 29" don't like narrow, twisty stuff but they do have a lot of grip on these open turns. Wink
  • + 1
 I know. I look at these tracks and I think even I could do them. I want to see tracks that make me scared just looking at them.
  • + 5
 jesus does the gimbal have tourettes or something?
  • + 13
 Parkinson maybe?
  • + 2
 I can never get enough of these.......one of the best things Redbull does. Great work Claudio and thank you!
  • + 3
 Claudio, why is Jack's camera so much more stable?? Smile
  • + 31
 because 29er Wink
  • + 3
 Jack´s 29" is rolling so much smoother than Claudios
  • + 3
 How about his heart rate almost 200???
  • + 1
 XC heart rate! Wink

 Foaming at the mouth!!!!

 Helmet cam, please.

 this track is f...ing awesome and the new section is just amazing, can`t wait to see it live!
  • + 1
 Maybe it was just the camera shakiness but I thought Claudio was going to eat it at least 10 times in this one haha!

 Fantastic track preview Claudio!

 Yeeeeeeeeeeeoooooooowwww he looked absolutely pinned.

 thanks Kermit the frog!

 Heart rate to the max,what do people expect on DH tracks ?

 "PEDAL!! PEDAL!!"
Something Gwin has never heard.
  • + 5
 To be fair to Moir I've never seen someone take it more casual in front of Claudio and still pull such a massive gap in him (granted this is also partially down to how tough the course is). That kid would be out off sight so fast if he was going for it!

 WC ftw!

 Chest cam is freaking out!
  • + 3
 His gimbal was having a meltdown by the looks of it

 Worst. Gimbal. Ever!
