Who would you say are the most skilled and capable,well-known, mountain bike riders of all time and why?
My choices would be: -
Danny MacAskill - for making me reassess what is truly possible on two-wheels (for others not for me!)
Nicolas Vouilloz - his ability to find new lines on a DH course, total smoothness and for making immensely fast riding look almost slow. Also being head and shoulders above the competition.
Tim Gould. His climbing skills and fantastic uphill pace. I only saw him once in the flesh and he was so bloody fast!
Anne-Caroline Chausson. Has there been a better female DH rider since...? I don't think so. Amazingly fast and so, so committed to getting the most speed out of every single section.
