it’s been a busy year. cadel won the tour, which was pretty cool. cavendish took green, wiggins took the dauphine. however, none of these were as cool as Danny Hart’s winning downhill run at the worlds, or the commentary for that matter. if you haven’t yet seen it, have a look.
i don’t like descending a shallow incline on a road bike with 25mm tyres at 25mph when it’s bone dry. quite how he tears down the side of a mountain in the pissing rain at an absurdly rapid pace and finds the time to bust out some sort of tabletop thing at the end is beyond me. every time i see it i am a bit more blown away.
british cycling made it their ‘ride of the year’.
