 Danny Hart,absolutely balls out and loose - Is this the future of Downhill? I hope so

As much as I love Peaty,Gee,Minnaar,Fairclough and Hill - the new youth coming through are breathing new life into Downhill

The King is dead - Long Live the King

  • + 30

  • + 10
 looks slightly like him too Razz but none the less... insane job by the young ripper, you deserved it danny, been riding like a wild man all season. glad to see it all payed off
  • + 2
 markmac^^^^. I'm sure peaty is not dead mate.

But on a more serious note!! I'm very glad that one of the usual people didn't win it e.g gee, Greg, hill or peaty. Not saying I wouldn't have wanted them to, I'm just saying it's good to have someone eles win for once, and no one more designing than Danny!!!!!!

 Just watch Geordie Shore, you'll like the accent after a while Wink

 Said Mr Hart to Mrs Hart - "F*ck the elocution lessons pet, lets buy him a downhill bike, aye?!"
  • + 7
 its not his accent i dont think but its the fact he sounds like he has 15 marbles in his mouth and trying to talk.
  • + 3
 Forgot to say - FAIR PLAY DANNY - YR A F*CKIN LORD!! Doin the North East proud.

 I thought it was because french is my 1st language that I understood nothing. It seems not

 Props if ^that^ sent shivers down your spine. It certainly sent them down mine. Pure talent.

 Leave Danny and Hills talking alone! Bagger off yer filthy basterds! Many fast guys have surgicaly modified larynxes to be more aerodynamic, that's the story, get it!

 Piuhhh, I'm relieved to see that even native speakers had a hard time to understand him. I always thought my english was reasonably good but I didn't understand a word he was saying. Same thing with the Irish when I was in Dublin a week ago. Pretty weird accent. But I guess it must be the same dilemma when you think you understand the german language and then meet a bavarian. :-)
  • + 2
 I'm Polish and I understand pretty much everything. It's not easy but I don't think I could have any problems talking to him. He's speaking slowly, so no probs

 @ tibo13 I feel sorry for you, D4 is a hard language for anyone out side Ireland to understand.

 I paid my £15, all I got was an epic 4x on Friday night, wicked XC yesterday, then today...... OMG, best £15 I have spent in some time.
Thank you Freecaster for a free year of viewing, with action like this weekend it is well worth paying for.
  • - 12
 i paid my 21€ today for the lift, better than watch anything, is being on the trails suckkkkkerrssssssssssss the season is ending and replay is coming sooner or later(i hope)
  • + 3
 well said Betsie totally agree - Danny Hart, Freecaster and Rob Warner. Doesn't get any better. 4X was quality as well.
  • + 6
 Chochocat. The replay costs. Boom.
  • + 2
 damn i got to conform with the last corner of val di sole? but that 12 sec quicker than anybody else on the wet champery worth the fully 15€

I´m thinking to pay it


damn again

 Giant worked their asses off this year. They came to Sea Otter Classic in California while everyone else was heading to south africa early. Everyone was upset that no one big came, but Danny Hart impressed me a lot with his performance there. I knew he'd be one of the next big contenders. But didn't see this coming
  • + 1
 Especially since the next weekend he won the Port Angeles ProGRT race (Giant took 1st thru 3rd that race) - he looked like he was just cruising, too.

Bummed for Gwin but, really, he was a close 2nd at best after watching Hart's mastery of that mountain. Pure legend.

 Danny on his mum and dad : "I wouldnt be here with out them".......... Gotta love him

 I'm mean they did give i him a lift there!!!

 Again apologies for the audio quality here guys. The rain was lashing down, Danny was several feet above us as he was on the stage and 100+ press guys were pushing and shoving to be the first. Don't forget the crowds were still screaming and it was a dog fight in there..

 Might I be the first to say congratulations Danny, you earned it.

 @Kdawg...So I shouldn't bother to comment when asking a serious question because I am new to following the UCI formatted events not new to riding, even though half of the comments on here are completely pointless and I have a serious interest in the sport. You probably shouldn't bother to comment actually.

 Wish i'd of not been so tight and payd to watch on freecaster gagging to see his run!!
  • + 19
 Not to quote the Mastercard advert or anything but.. "Flight to Canberra - £600, Flight to New York - £400, Watching Danny Hart f*ck everybody over at World Champs on Freecaster - Priceless".
  • + 3
 Haha classic mate like it
  • - 6
 well not really seeing as you had to pay to watch it didnt you
  • - 1
 you could still pay and watch the replay, or you could buy the dvd for £35. which has the xc, 4x and dh in it and you get a pass to watch the dh replay online
  • + 3
 @OliScale priceless doesnt mean its free, it means you cant put a price on it, i.e. you would pay anything for it, or the price is unimportant. @EuanBisset145 yeah I could but there is nothing quite like watching it live and I already know who's won it. Big Grin
  • + 0
 well unfortunately they did put a price on it, £15
  • + 2
 well worth the 15 quid I think , get a few mates chip in few quid each , job done. Now I kinda understand why my mates get so excited when they watch football and their team wins , I was buzzing my brains out on dannys run.

 Couldnt understand a word, the sound was messed up, ive heard other Danny interviews and he is not hard to understand. Camera man needed a microphone for him. Wtg Danny!

 Its Amazing to see a geordie on the podium when was the last time that happened ? best i can think of is jez avery who Reached 5th place in the Malvern Classic downhill championships Reached 5th place in the British Downhill Championships a long time ago nd congrats to danny he earned it nd that was a seriously sick run the stuff legends are made of

 He isn't a Geordie.......

 what accent deos he speak in ? where deos he live ?
  • + 1
 redcar. boro accent

 you sir are a know liar
  • + 2
 excuse me? geordies are from newcastle. not redcar
  • + 1
 ok my bad i thought he was from just north of newcastle dont know where i got that from
  • + 1
 HaHa it's nothing like a Geordie accent !! I'm a southerner and can tell it's not Razz
  • + 1
 on an old inteview when he rode for lappierre he said that he lives 50 mile north of newcastle for some reason, which was obviously a mistake because he lives about 50 mile south of there. so thats where you will have got that from

 if Gwin wasnt always infront by a few seconds this season would of been balls to the wall pure neck and neck competition. not trying to downsize gwins epic results but without him the top 5 would of been an epic white knuckle ride.
[Reply]
  • + 0
 It was so good to see someone stoked on their victory at last, Gwin is such a douche about winning and Gee and Greg complain every time they 'only podium', Sam Hill also has the personality of a wet dishcloth... Danny though is always so happy for what he achieves, his constant grin in these vid is refreshing to see
  • + 2
 He was buzzing so much , you could see it in his facial expressions , didn't know what do do with him self . Can't blame him , I think that the best run I have seen since Sam Hill was at his peak .
  • + 2
 How is being humble being a douche?

Also, I like how in all of the articles about Danny Hart winning there's always some asshat like you bringing up Gwin. Who gives a damn about Gwin right now? He did pretty bad considering the rest of his season. How about you focus on Danny Hart instead of crying more about Gwin? Seriously, get over it. If anything it's insulting to Hart's accomplishment that people like you keep whining on and on and on about Gwin.
  • + 2
 haha cyrix you're a legend, I mentioned Gwin only briefly and you managed to write 4 lines on it! Gwin just annoys me the way he always says how crap his run was at the end... when he's just won by 6 seconds or something, its a bit disrespectful to the other guys I think... but anyway, Hart's the new guy in town!
  • - 1
 You know it's funny you say him downplaying his run was "disrespectful" but when Sam Hill said in 07 that his run in Champery was "nothing special" (despite the fact everyone else thinking it was one of the most insane runs ever performed to this day) people applauded him for being "humble" about it. I love the double standards people have here, it's hilarious, aggravating, but hilarious.
  • + 2
 again... 1 run from Sam Hill, every run of Gwin's - but seriously, stop commentating, I know you love America and want to defend Gwin, as does every American because you're all so mindlessly patriotic, but seriously, gtfo!
  • + 0
 Don't tell people to stop commenting or posting on this website as if you have some authority or inherent right to do so, it just makes you look like an ass. You've got some growing up to do buddy, best of luck, and I do genuinely mean that.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 He does mumble but who cares? He made the best run Hill has ever done look like my mum riding down the shops!

I think he made one dab and everyone else made hundreds. Absolutely unbelievable talent.

 well done to Danny Hart, great ride......but im afraid i just can't be happy for the guy. I have seen him grow up through the race seasons and he has never been a professional. Rude, Aggressive, impatient and intimidating to younger riders. Never showed appreciation and got on peoples nerves. Hard to be happy for a crap person
  • + 1
 Sarcasm ? He seems as aggressive as the Andrex puppy , ofc you can't tell from a vid but I would be surprised
