Andrew Neethling wants to improve downhill, future venues, racing the Mega Avalanche and more

Mountain biking legend Andrew Neethling is in studio!

Olly and Davi sit down with Andrew Neethling to talk about his recent Mega Avalanche experience, Amaury Pierron’s insane comeback and the resurgence of Greg Minnaar. Andrew breaks down his LCQ idea which he thinks would make downhill racing more of a level playing field for riders along with talking about the venues that he’d love to see on the World Cup schedule, riding the DarkFest course, creating a union for downhill racers and fatherhood. The lads also talk about their visit to the McLaren F1 racing facility.
