World Cup Downhill, EWS and everything Mountain Bike racing chat with Kieran Bennett and James Rennie.
Brook MacDonald - In The Hot Seat
1:37:54Brook MacDonald joins KB and Red Dog In The Hot Seat this week to discuss just about everything! From where mountain biking and racing started for him, travelling the world as a teenager with Wyn Masters, winning a Junior World Downhill Championship, joining the Red Bull family, winning a World Cup, his years riding for Martin Whitely on the powerhouse Trek World Racing Team and his incredible return to racing in 2020 after his near career-ending crash at the 2019 World Championships. Brook has had an incredible career on the World Cup Downhill circuit and tells us some amazing tales of his years on the scene, but his story isn't over yet as he heads into the 2023 season back with the MS Mondraker team, still hungry and ready to chase down more wins!
Sam Blenkinsop - In The Hot Seat
1:31:20Sam Blenkinsop needs no introduction when it comes to downhill racing, he has been racing the World Cup Series for 17+ years and has done it all from being a NZ National Champ to having the most elite DH wins in the NZ National Series history to being a World Cup winner, its hard to find something Sam hasn't won! For 2023 Sam has set up his own privateer deal with Crestline Bikes so he joins KB and Red Dog to discuss his plans for this season along side taking a trip down memory lane with some epic stories from over the years. We barely scratched the surface so I'm sure there will need to be a part 2!
