he is pretty special . I think he has 10 world champ titles .

funny thing is that Fabien Barel lives 100 yard from him, above Monaco .

that would be awesome if Nico returned to DH, I'd love to see him go head to head against Peaty whilst he's at his peak.

Trouble with rallying is that you need a lot of money

he is still contracted with lapierre and designs their DH bikes .

In a recent interview he said that he would need 2 months training to be back to its best . As I said he still rides quite a lot .
same with Anne caroline Chausson , she made one race this year Megavalanche at Alpes d huez ) and won it with a few minutes in hand .

back to topic here...


brodie will have a ti bike for 2007, it will be a b-team bike and very limited production. At the shop I work at we have sold a couple of santa cruz bike to visiting uk residents looking to get around the importation and duties etc.

As a side note I have a 94 rocky ti bolt, and Bruce Spicer who was rocky's top pro a decade ago is the designer at brodie. He explained to me that the old ti-bolt was the best handling bike he rode. So I think you will find that reflects in the brodie geometry.
:D
