The old world is free for 48h (Akriggs in it)

I didn't get into that at all. 

You'd think RedBull this time around we don't have to listen to a soundtrack like that, but nope. Worst one yet :P

Yeah I was kind of underwhelmed. Maybe it was because it was a bit slow paced with the arty farty undertones, but nothing stood out for me at all. In fact the best bit I thought was Vincent Tupin's section at the end.

And where was Danny?

I really liked the athlete machine I thought that was fantastic but I think Danny is wise (and Fabio for that matter) to just do their own thing. 

I think the opportunity for Chris here is amazing to be put out to a wider audience so can fully see why he did it. 

But after watching his part again it just isn't anything on A hill in Spain or when be brought out that Welsh edit that got removed from YouTube.

I know what you mean. I watched the Akrigg 'behind the scenes' vid yesterday and it says a lot that the 'crux' of his part was the fairly nothing pedal gap across the stream. HIs part just seemed like the stuff he does day in, day out without any real bangers.

I expected a lot more but it was something to kill the time. Its good to see Ackrigg in anything to be honest and (this may seem controversial) was good to see him ride somewhere other than Shipley.

It was high production quality, free content so no complaints from me. Not the most inspiring section from Chris compared to some of his other stuff, but still an enjoyable watch. I think I preferred Rach's section to be honest, just sending it down some flowy trails (but still techy in places and generally huge)

I haven’t actually managed to watch it yet but reading a bit of the blurb around Chris’s but they couldn’t get to where they wanted to film because of weather so just had to film stuff on the fly that they could find..
