    Improving a Race Winning Bike – YT Tues MK4

    Improving a Race Winning Bike – YT Tues MK4

    Today I’m joined by YT Industries' Product Development Manager, Frank Dörr to talk about their brand new Tues MK4 downhill bike. How do you take a race winning bike and improve on it, with the pressure of knowing you have 2x World Champion, Vali Höll joining the team. How do you balance the functional vs the aesthetic requirements and how do you make sure the bike works for World Cup athletes and regular riders like us. As always, Frank is super open and provides some great insight into how the products we ride get designed and tested. So, it’s time to sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Frank Dörr.

    Leogang 2024 – Post-Race Show

    Alright, this weekend we're back in Leogang, a track the riders know well, with historically tight margins.

As always, we were treated to incredible racing and I’m joined by Neko and Olly to dig into what went on. So sit back, hit play and listen to this Leogang World Cup post-race show with Neko Mulally and Olly Morris.

    Who is Chris Hall? – Neko Mulally Turns the Tables

    Who is Chris Hall? – Neko Mulally Turns the Tables

    Today’s episode is a little different. If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you’ll know that it’s very much not about me, but today it is. For a while now, Neko has been telling me that he thinks people would like to know more about me. I guess for some of you, you’ve heard my voice for years now and I’ve not shared a whole lot about myself. So I finally caved in and let Neko take control of the questions. We sat down in Fort William and chatted about my background in mountain biking, my previous career in automotive engineering and how I eventually came to start the podcast. Hear about the challenges of making a mountain bike podcast your full time job and where the podcast is going in the future. Hopefully you enjoy finding out a bit more about me and where this whole podcast comes from. So, it’s time to sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Chris Hall.

    Leogang 2024 – Pre-Race Show
