    Brilliant.

    He should do a line choice video but big up all the rubbish ones ūüĎĆ

    Quite a lot less folk trying at this round than normal (75 men ish from memory), but I was still well chuffed when I saw he was in!

    A few months ago there was talk that any non US citizens needed to be on a pro-team to get the elite athlete (and support staff) exemption from quarantine.

    And without that, it was physically impossible to do both lenzerheide and snowshoe

    Go on Ben!
    Great news ‚Äď that guy always has a smile, also enjoying his ‚Äėhow to bike‚Äô video series too.

    Let’s start a petition to get him on the live feed.

    Many of the top Frenchies are notable by their absence. I don’t think it’ll make a difference to Ben’s qualifying though!

    He beat some fast riders, too many of them for it to have been a fluke.

    Looking at the DNFs, I’d guess it might be an easy track to crash on?

    Just behind Phil Atwil, who makes it into the streamed coverage quite a lot ‚ÄĒ so is there hope to see Cathro‚Äôs run on the tellybox?

    If he’s put in one of the fastest runs they might open the coverage with a recap of him.

    If I were him I‚Äôd be updating my race CV to say ‚Äúout performed Greg Minaar in his world championship winning year at the snowshoe WC‚ÄĚ

    Yeah, whoever is on the hotseat when coverage starts gets a televised recap of their run. Time to pull a stunner out Ben.

    Fingers crossed then. It would be nice to see everyone‚Äôs favorite line-choice chap in the RB feed, not least to hear what Warner might have to say about him ūüėÄ

    Women’s Race 1 is on Red Bull TV now. Not sure if the men will follow…

    Proper rocky, bumpy course !

    Superb racing from the women there. ūüėÄ

    Yep, Men’s Race 1 coming up on Red Bull

    Cathro goes at 18:46 by the looks of it.. won’t be on the live feed but you can watch the live timing on the UCI website.

    Looks like he had a bit of a crash earlier today though.

    Good effort! Down in one piece and 4 seconds quicker than his quali time.

    Cathro in 21st currently. After a major wheel explosion for Daprela.

    Well, it wasn’t Cathro! What a great result!

    Just caught up with this… i certainly wasn’t expecting that result !

    Only just noticed he was racing in the British Cycling HSBC kit, rather than his normal DHARCO shirt.
    I’ve never quite understood the reasoning behind the descision to wear the National Jersey or not, Cathro must have enough sponsors from SantaCruz, Pinkbike and so on that they would want to be represented? Or are they only sponsoring Ben the Videographer not Ben the Racer?

    I cant imagine British Cycling giving much if any support to a ‚Äúmaybe just about qualifier‚ÄĚ

    Premier Icon chakaping

    He didn’t have enough points to qualify to race, but that can be circumvented by wearing the national jersey.

    Does he get any points for his 40th place finish though?

    40th place bagged him 20 points ‚Äď not sure how that translates to UCI points, but I‚Äôm assuming he must have picked some up somewhere to be allowed to enter?

    Knew there would be a logical reason.

    Does he get any points for his 40th place finish though?

    Notably hes above Wyn, Kaos, Jack Reading. Should have no problem doing the full season next year.
