    Brilliant. I thought I’d heard most of the more famous/memorable RW quotes over the years already, but obviously not!

    You can see how his style evolved as the sport grew back in those days. I still remember the likes of the PinkBike users bemoaning his ‘sanitisation’ when RedBull took over, only took a few races for the old Warner to emerge but with no swearing 🤣

    The cast majority of them weren’t suitabke for repeating so they fell out of the mind!

    Fantastic! He’s definitely a bit more pro these days but he’s always has great fun with it

    That’s exactly why Red Bull initially wanted nothing to do with him.

    There’s a thought in the back of my mind that Discovery might think he’s still a bit too ‘Warner’ to risk. Or they are worried about what he’s already said in a ‘you said this 10 years ago, you’re clearly a monster’ kind of way.

    He is great though.  When other commentators get a little too serious about it it doesn’t quite work.  He does manage to inject excitement into it which is  a skill

    Brilliant! He’s been like a 21st century Murray Walker. Not sure if WC DH will feel exciting enough without someone like him commentating…

    I fear that WCDH will be completely sterilised by Discovery. Either that or Extremified and dragged back to ‘extreme sports’ radical dudes nonsense. Just watch Rampage when it’s on ESPN or whatever. Absolute cringe.

    If the World Champs (shown on GCN) are anything to go by, it wont be sterilised it’ll just be crap. Ric McLaughlin (EWS guy) just doesn’t seem to be a proper commentator, hopefully they have someone else lined up

    Utterly wonderful if a bit cringeworthy at times but seldom not funny. Them were the days.

    Rob was trailing some interesting Redbull err things in his last broadcast so lets hope there’s something afoot.
