Sep 5, 2017
by Pinkbike Staff  

Think you know downhill racing? Well, you're about to find out you don't.

Tippie hits up the pros at the bottom of Whistler Bike Park to see just how much they know about downhill. Gee Atherton, Dan Atherton, Tracey Hannah, Chris Kovarik, Jack Moir, Eliot Jackson, Brook Macdonald, Bernard Kerr and Sven Martin take up the challenge.

How many did you get right of our ultimate quiz?

 Wow, Bulldog is amazing! BTW, why don't let Dan finish his answer? Every time it cut away right after Tippie put the mic to Dan.

 Here's a couple questions I want answered:

1. Why isn't Red Bull covering world champs?

2. How can it be viewed online for viewers in America?

3. Who will be doing the commentary?

4. Will Claudio be doing a course preview?

These questions need to be answered to calm my anxiety.

 My guess: UCI got too greedy and RedBull politely told them to go f*ck themselves

you're very welcome...I though the same shit...couldn't find it on the red bull page for the life of me...somebody on the world champs article shared it. Claudio and Rob better be there, they do work for red bull so probably the same for mat as WC

 Brook wtf!?! Boys got the knowledge !!

 That was fun! But any news on the Redbull airing of the WC in Cairns?

Apparently RedBull will not live stream the event. Instead Fox Sports, SBS and BBC are broadcasting it. www.vitalmtb.com/forums/The-Hub,2/2017-World-Champs-Broadcast,9849

Why? And will it still be Rob and Claudio in the comment booth? So many questions!

 I can NOT believe he got the last question right. Then puts on his helmet to go back to business. Gangsta!!
  • 14 0
 Even more respect for Bulldog now!

He was improving massively every race for a while then seemed to get swallowed up by a sink hole or some thing ?

 It's funny how the poll tapers down towards knowing 9 out of 10 then jumps up to loads more people who got them all correct, I call bs from a lot of people who think they know everything...
