Footage of winner Danny Hart at the UCI MTB World Championships 2011, Champery, Switzerland
For those of you who haven’t already seen Danny Hart’s out-of-this-world run at last weekend’s UCI MTB Downhill World Championships in Champéry, here’s the amazing video footage for you to gape over. Watch the energy, committment and ‘balls of steel’ riding, and listen to the passion in Rob Warner’s voice as he screams into the microphone nearly losing his voice whilst commentating on what has to be the downhill run of the year. And make sure you check out the whip at 02:20mins in. Rob, an ex pro rider himself could barely get down the course when he rode it for a demo before the race, which reinforces what an incredible talent the 20 year old is.
Rob Warner: It’s insane. Danny Hart is 10 seconds up. Look at the whip!!!!
If you’re wondering what tyres he’s running to make all those crazy moves stick, he’s got his Giant set up with Schwalbe Dirty Dans – watch sales of Schwalbe’s mud tyre go through the roof this winter!
