N1NO- Huntforglory Chapter 1
His father coached the Swiss national Downhill Team, and he regularly rides with 'enduro' or gravity guys like Lopes, so he takes the down aspect of riding seriously. He also raced DH for a while when he was younger. So it's not like he's a roadie cross over, he's a MTB racer through and through, regardless of discipline. There's many interviews where he talks about it. http://www.i-mtb.com/nino-schurter-interview-and-650b/ http://www.mtb-downhill.net/brendan-fairclough-nino-schurter-finale-ligure/ He's an outlier and his multifaceted approach to being great at all aspects of MTB make him a champion. It's awesome to see a champion with so much style and skill.

Mike, can you find out if they are using Inconel (or similar alloy) for the spring?

captian is missing the point. Not surprising, dude doesn't' even have pics, or anything showing who he is. It's that he makes absolute statements that DHers are slow and not fit enough to ride trails. Forgetting that a lot of local level DHers also race XC, or can be just as fit as the average XC rider, then draws conclusions based on pro training regimes. the sandy vag club can get upset, neg prop, but the fact remains that absolute statements like that are for idiots. Plenty of 'DHers' that could school him daily. Then we get an explaination on basketball.... This is like ESL here, ignore the point and make your own up. @brownstone, nothing, but the slowest guys are hardly representative of the 'fitness' required to do well in a sport.

Are you serious? We aren't pros. Those 'fast' guys you ride with, aren't at a pro level either. We're just goofs on bikes, and overall fitness will help either. Trying to do 'sport specific' training like you're going for gold in the Olympics isn't exactly going to make you much faster than if you worked on your overall strength as a bike rider. You speak in absolutes that 'a DH rider' yad yada. Well, I've got news for you, most fast DH riders around here also race in XC. Go figure. It's called riding a bike, and a LOT of it is transferable. You don't think DH pros work on cardio (because they do)? You don't think XC pros do strength training( because they do)? You made 'absolute' statements, then followed up with specific statements. Not sure you're getting the point that we are talking about us lowly riders and how fitness is required in all disciplines, and how training for either will help with either over doing nothing. Comprehension, do you speak it? ;)

Fitness is fitness. Get a fit DH'er on one of your rides and he'll smoke you up and down. It's all about fitness mixed with skill. Pros have both in spades, because they take every aspect of bike riding seriously. You got faster because you got fitter. Those who think DH is just sit and go are the slow ones at the back of the 'sport' class pack.
