  4. Jus

  8. rosco

    Thats amusing, im hoping he has a look through his family photo album and then checks his on line bank statement! I guess he didnt think anyone would open the stream up but we are all that excited we’ve hooked up already! Cant fucking wait!!

  11. ronin

  12. Mothy

    So what’s with the “This copy of Windows is not genuine” banner at the bottom right of the screen? Can’t Redbull/Dirt afford a proper Win7 license? lolz :-)

    Go the Aussies – we’ve been practicing while you sleep …

  13. billy

  18. Mothy

    Gmail is so boring …. Anybody up for StarCraft 2?

    (+1) Fail

  19. billy

    The Red Bull show starts at 12:15pm, but the womens race starts now! Hope that clears things up!

  20. Proff

    Wait I fastforwarded to like 4 hours, why is it a Starcraft commentary.. :L

  21. Andrew

    It’s fully lame that they’re not showing the women. Sponsors will drop the women in a heartbeat without exposure, and the last thing we need is MORE MEN and LESS WOMEN on the Sunday morning uplift. DH is a sausage fest as it is! I hope this changes. Anyway, come on Gwin, get me some points!!!!! Come on Minaar, puncture! I take it back, he’s a legend.

  22. Mowgli

    Come on the Brits!

  23. Carl

    Has it started raining there?
    Womens times have dropped…..

  24. ddmonkey

    What on earth are these American dudes prattling on about?

  25. JDub

    super funny!

  26. Jordan

    Uhhh, what’s Starcraft 2 got to do with the World Cup? 😛

  27. S&M

    Andrew – sponsors will drop THE SPORT without exposure, and let’s face it – the men are better to watch. It’d be rad if the women could be brought into it and given more exposure too, but given a limited time frame for streaming, the sport as a whole benefits from more exposure of the best riders.

  28. stooky

    Boom What a time Manon!!

  29. chris


  30. MadBikerRich

  57. Christiaan

  58. TimBud

    Tracey Hannah, just earned me some good points. Nice one!

  59. Tom

    the mens race had better be slicker than this!

  60. Andy

    what the hell, show some live racing, we don’t need to see 2011 reviews when racers are going down the mountain live.

  61. Tom

    well this is great

  62. Josh

    Why cant they just keep it simple and show it all live instead of all this pre recorded rubbish. It’s ridiculous!

  63. thattommyhall

    gone down faster than a french breast implant?

  64. tuoppi

    The stream is not working…

  65. Pez

    Lost count of how many times this feed has totally frozen on me. What a sack of crap! :(

  66. stooky

    quality stream good race! Maybe just need to show more than the top thirty.

  67. LucieB

    It performs more freezes than a breakdancer soooooo annoying. Should have gone to Bringewood and watched live racing as opposed to this stutter tastic version. Bring back freecaster.

  68. Carl


    Thanks to Red bull and Dirt for bringing us the footage:)

  69. TimBud

    Great quality feed for me… except for the terrible filler musac and the fact that it wasn’t quite live.
    Overall though an improvement in the coverage especially as Warner and Page are still involved!

    oh, forgot to say the race was fantastic too. :)

  70. Jizzer

    Works better through Pinkbike forget this Dirt shit.

  71. Turpy

    Great race Thanks Dirt for whatever reason the stream was better through you guys than red bull its self. That has really set it up for a great season well excited now.

  72. flowrideisgood

    The camera coverage of the track was pure crap, 50 sec on a 4 minute track, not a single picture of the massive table.

    red Bull TV had a big mouth before the event annoucing better than Freecaster : fail.
    Add to that all the technical issues and it ‘s been catastrophic.
    Freecaster boys are probably smiling right now.

  73. M

    I had a fantastic feed. Didn’t freeze once for me and the footage looked like 1080p standard compared to 5ft pixles from freecaster. A camera up near the gully and it would have been perfect.

  74. bardiff

    THey need to not cut more than half the riders, it means we missed Brendogs run among many that would have been good to see. Just show the full race and start commentating half way through if that is the only reason they arent doing it. Really pisses me off. Good race though. Red bull need to fix up.

  75. Optimus Doddsy

    few teething problems, to be expected, but overall im impressed and as usual warner and nige were awesome

  76. dhiobsessed

    I miss the days of watching all of the riders. Both men and Woman. For one not all of the riders I like are in the top 30. Secondly, I’m sure mom dad and friends like watching their rider go down the WC track even if he/she is 80th. To get to that level takes treamendous effort.. The beauty of broadcasting over the internet is the lack of tv schedules. That’s something that RBMH house could stand to understand. Making internet broadcasts look like tv is not a step forward it’s mearly standing still. Thirdly, what’s with the lack of additional camera angles during the top 20 riders? Have things changed with the spacing of starts? In the past with the top 20 because the starts are further apart we would get some top of the course camera angles. What happened to those? Not one shot of the massive jumps with the giant Red bull arch seems like a miss.

    I hope in the next 2 months RBMH rethinks this and we get the choice to watch all of the riders. Also camera angles from the top of the track are necessary.
