I feel the same way. The human interest videos of high level riders are particularly interesting to me, and motivate me far more than watching a mediocre rider living out of a van (although sometimes those are fun to watch anyway). For example, I follow the Red Bull series because it covers more than just bike riding; It explores what's going on in their heads:Same here. I don't want to watch POV footage of mediocre riders or riders who I ride better than, with little to no personality, pushing their latest sponsors product or their Patreon link. I want to see good quality, well edited footage of riders who are progressing the sport.
Even though I know I will never ride anywhere near the level of those top riders I like watching them do what they do because they're so damned good at it. Actually, I enjoy watching any talented person doing what they do when they're really good at it. I don't care what the talent is; When I see someone who is awesome at what they do it's inspirational. I just like watching talented people.
Skills With Phil is maybe an example of a "regular guy" but his riding skills are excellent and I like his goofy personality so his channel is watchable.
