Making Up The Numbers Podcast Episode 2 | Jack Reading

by 2

Our very own racer of mediocrity, George Thompson, has started a brand new Downhill World Cup, Making Up The Numbers Podcast for the 2019 season in association with Hope Technology, Revolution Bike Park and us, Singletrack.

Welcome to the second episode of the Making Up The Numbers Podcast with George Thompson and with him in the studio once again, is Making Up The Numbers Team mate, Richard Binns.

Well, what a season we’re having in the DH World Cup and joining us in the studio tonight to talk about it, is the man who’s finished 31st and 27th at the last two rounds respectively, a veteran of the World Cup Downhill race scene, Mr Jack Reading.

Who the blinking flip is George Thompson?

Helpfully, George himself has crafted this fine short video to explain.

After taking a 17 year break from exercise, George rediscovered mountain bikes in 2008. Six years later, at 40 years of age he started racing Downhill and the following season somehow ended up on the Revolution Bike Park Race Team. As the other members of the team fought for podiums and National Series victories, George searched for mid-pack mediocrity. In a bit to add some value #makingupthenumbers was born; a blog about their race weekends and in particular life towards the back of the field.
