I went MX practicing to Fat Cats Moto Park Doncaster and got talking to a chap in his 50's with a Geordie accent.

Whilst chatting he says his son is a sponsored Downhill Mountain Biker.

Later in the day I ask him who is son is, he replies Danny Hart :shock:

I don't really follow competitive cycling, but is that the run where the commentators blow their load over ?

Ah, Tis pretty awesome to watch, definitely way out of my league. We used to have 'no brakes' downhill competitions as a youth till one of my mates split his ball bag, now it's just nice xc for me.

Cough.....Ahem..... Sorry to be pedantic but a Redcar/Middlesbrough accent is not Geordie!! Equivalent to spilling someone's pint up north that is....;-)

Cool story though and that youtube footage is scary!!

Lol at the ballbag comment though, oh and ouch too....
