I love Benedict's films but he needs to resist the slo mo a little. It's video's equivalent of HDR - so seductive but to be used sparingly. He makes Sam Peckinpah seem concise. Slo mo should be used to emphasise an action - not as a default speed for most of the action.

Most of this trailer is people in Lycra carrying bikes up a steep hill veryyyyyyyy slowlyyyyyyy. I don't care if it's a classic event. It's no more CX than chasing a cheese down a hill is fell running. All it is is hill walking with a bike instead of a back pack.
