This week on the show, we’re joined by Will Longden. I’ve been asked a lot to get some interviews with team managers, so this is the first of a couple coming up over the next month or so. Will is a former DH racer himself, and is now the manager of the Madison Saracen Downhill team. We sit down for a chat about his own riding career, his time with Madison Saracen, and what it takes to run one of the top teams on the circuit, with riders like Danny Hart, Matt Walker and Alex Marin.

 I remember "Will the Thrill" Longden from when I first got into riding/downhill. He was one of the big names back then. One of the MBUK regulars. How to pull a wheelie/endo/corner/jump etc. I still think they are doing those same features to this day lol.
