Redbull / Parkin Bros practice video:

Anyone know how to download RB videos? They're obviously designed to try and stop you, hopefully someone has figured it out though.
Nope. I've resorted to screen capture using Fraps , then converting and reducing the mammoth files using Handbrake. Works well but it's not just a click away like using video download helper or the likes.

Bummer if Gwin wins this. Not because anything against Gwin, but just because we didn't see his run at all.

Odds are good, but still some fast guys to come. I think someone else will take it.

With no more GoPros we can't have the split screen replay to find out where all the time came from. F U UCI!

Well, so far this is much more exciting than the Grand Prix of China was and a few billion dollars cheaper. As much as I enjoy Claudio's rides, he is a little boring in the booth though. I want Nigel Page back in there. Or let's just throw David Hobbs in and see what happens.

that was an exciting race weekend. the only downside was the timing of Gwin's run. still, it's awesome that he nailed it. I like seeing people pick themselves up off the ground and climb back to the top. was his last win in Pietermaritzburg? Totally opposite style courses. Similarly stoked for Emmeline too. After getting bumped from her old team, it's awesome to see her with a win.

Super bummed for Neko though. I like his quiet calm demeanour.

Hellz yeah, what a start to the season!

The last berm made an 'owww!' as Gwin railed it.
Did you see how he rounded it off and went to the tape right there? Wow.

It was a bummer not to see his run at first, but they aired most of not all of it as a replay, so I'm sure it'll pop up.
