    right around never o'clock. unless helicopter, it's 62km of trail in one day, so webcast seems really tough. maybe when 5g comes out, sven can just tape a POV cam to his head for the weekend and live 'cast it

    I'll get the kickstarter going.

    Seriously though for all the 'press releases, teaser vids' etc, there needs to be some coverage of this stuff. I don't know what a kilometer is but there's obviously some money and interest. Freecaster made people care about dh racing, there's going to have to be something similar for people to get into it.

    Holy shlt I can barely type I'm laughing so hard at that music.

    Cameras are cheap. I've seen badass coverage of moto xc races, road races........there should be at least an awesome summary vid. Isn't this being broadcast somewhere in europe? I mean they actually cover cool things over there.

    instead of typing funny names for 2015 svelmet cam projects, take some time to look on vital, dirt etc. there's plenty of coverage. the race hasn't even started yet. if you took a minute to get out of that forum once in a while and you would have seen the cursing mtn biker video like 2 weeks ago.

    You could probably already do this for free. Use a website like www.justin.tv to broadcast it from an iPhone or some sort of camera rigged up to a laptop in a backpack.
