Im amazed just how un-fit you can be and still be a world champ. And thats coming from a fatty like me. I guess gravity must really work for you, i'm just sayin like.
I'm amazed just how stupid, ignorant, presumptuous, deluded and pathetic some keyboard warriors really are.
I've been speaking to a load of guys who are just back from the Halo BDS at Fortwilliam, now these are elite DH riders. Young guys who cross train in xc, road, enduro etc and get very respectable results in those as well as dh. They also do weight training, kettle bell training etc. The bottom line is they are extremely fit.
They were describing to me how they were in bits at the end of their race run down the fort william track, even in practice they couldn't maintain their strength through a full run. They were amazed at just how fast, fit and generally un-fazed Hart was through the whole thing.
He may not look like an athlete but he is a professional dh racer, world champ no less, and is fitter for that application than you could ever be.
