Vital RAW - Fort William World Cup Case-o-Rama & Wind Tunnel 16

Blistering winds, rain and big jumps made the first day of Fort William World Cup practice a doozy. Ratboy goes down hard, riders punish their bikes with casing and Joe lets us feel the hurricane with some clips that lack any wind-cutting filters. Purely brutal. Purely RAW. Just how we like it!

    Gosh, it's times like this I wish I had the lucrative career of pro photographer/videographer...

    you'll be surprised, but 99% of all photo and videographers are barely making ends meet and always hungry. Who told you that this profession is lucrative? glamorous.. maybe... but def not a money maker..

    Am I the only one who is upset by the lack of Connor Fearon in this?
    I'm pretty sure he's been in every RAW so far, usually with a few clips.
    Was he struggling with the conditions? (totally understandable for anyone, especially an Aussie)

    Shit that looked hard on Josh's foot. Hope he's alright.

    Troy looks like he's using half his travel while going faster than anyone else.

    You call that RAW? That's just a bunch of rain and gail sounds put over riding. Not what anyone want's to see from Ratty.

    i can't tell if you're joking or not when you say that stuff, but we NEVER add sounds or noises. we bump up the volume a bit, but that is straight out of the camera and Vital RAWs have always been that way.

    I'm almost always joking. Except when I'm serious. I was just pointing out that most of the RAW soundtrack consisted of RAW wind and rain. Boy, those conditions suck. And I really, really, really hope that Ratty didn't re-injure the foot.
