@simooo: Except the brain performs in weird and wonderfully irrational ways.

How Do Coaches Help Riders Go Faster on a World Cup Weekend?
Agreed, a more applicable title would be something around how being part of a full ride factory program can help a rider develop, not much in here directly related to coaching, as you pointed out. Though I'm bet "Coach" carries many different responsibilities within various team structures.

@Rubberelli: The comparison to Gwin is apples and oranges. Maybe it would be a better production in the end, I dunno what the deal would look like or what kind of resources they'd offer up. Maybe it would be better for Ben financially, I dunno what he gets paid now or what Redbull would offer. But I do know Redbull is a very tightly managed brand, the brand itself is far more valuable than the piss they sling in a can. So there's no way they're just handing a camera, crew, airtime and all their trademark images to anyone and letting that person have at it as they wish. I mean, heck, how many companies built their own copyright infringement snitch line? https://policies.redbull.com/policies/RedBull.com_Canada/201904020124/en/brand_protection.html Ben has a unique position himself, his delivery and personality combine with his insights combine to make an enjoyable viewing experience. Perhaps it would happen under the Gives You Wings mission, as the company sees it's sponsorship (of anything it sponsors) as a way to enable great things, pioneers and risk takers (it all stems from the founder's mission to pioneer a new category and way of marketing a brand, ironically). Would be interesting to see. It could go to the next level... or it could lose all of its personality and flop.

@Rubberelli: Cool - so sponsor him directly and let him keep artistic freedom instead of having to satisfy RB content managers if he were on payroll.

Final Results: Maribor DH World Cup 2019
Disappointing there isn't coverage of the rock garden on most of the runs. Is this due to managing multiple riders on track?

@Rubberelli: I dunno if that would actually be a good thing for Ben or his fans. Maybe, dunno. But I certainly like what he produces without Redbull influence...

@freerider11: Exactly, when properly used the shock component should only be utilized during the training stage. Once trained they know that when they hear the beep/vibrate they need to heel in order to avoid the shock and receive their reward (which can be transitioned from treats to praise through the training phase). If you've done it right the shock shouldn't need to be used long term, in fact many trainers will strongly suggest that once trained you switch to a sound/vibrate only collar as humans tend to use shocks punitively when they should only be used as a deterrent. Dogs respond massively better to positive reinforcement than punishment.

Man, this series is exceeding all expectations. Love the vibe of the vids and the fact that most of these spots are a short drive from home!
