What is the funniest moment you experienced during your training or race?
We were following Hagloffs Silva Downhill on bikes in Sweden in 2005. Their last bike’s leash got caught on a branch at 20+kms/hr. The surgical elastic stretched all the way to its maximum before releasing and snapped back like a rocket. The poor Swedish rider got it right on his meaty part, with a crack like lightning he howled like he had just been shot. He jumped off his bike and ran around trying to ease the pain while his mates all stopped to help, but didn’t know what had happened.
What is your guilty pleasure? The one thing you could hardly live without?
