Andrew Neethling and Olly Wilkins discuss World Champs from two VERY different perspectives!


Olly and Andrew Neethling spend some time together in a hotel room to discuss all the happenings from the mountain bike World Championship in Fort William. 

During the episode Andrew Neethling talks about what it was like to commentate on the world feed to millions of people, preparing for the live broadcast and how he gathers inside information. Olly also shares what it was like from his perspective as a super fan at the event and how he stays away from most riders to avoid 'ruining it for them'. 

The lads also talk about changing track conditions, Charlie Hatton's epic win, Tahnee's crash, BK hasn't got a tiger, Valentina Höll, Loic Bruni and much more...
