Video: Andrew Neethling & Tracey Hannah Ride Queenstown in 'Mission to Ride' Ep.2

bigquotesIn episode 2, Andrew meets his former UR teammate and world cup overall winner Tracey Hannah to talk about why she likes to train in Queenstown New Zealand, how she solved the puzzle of winning the overall, and what made her stick with one team for as long as she has.

"It's not like I got lucky at every race, and I won the overall. The last eight years I've been working hard to put the pieces of the puzzle together." - Tracey Hannah

After some airtime with Sam Reynolds in episode 1, Tracey has a little challenge of her own in stock for Andrew. Spoiler alert: He failed.

 Neethling trying to make out like he's riding a Walmart hardtail down those trails when in fact it's a $8,000 long travel Enduro machine... granted, it's not a downhill bike, but it's more than up to the task of riding any bike park trail.

 There are a few tracks I properly shat myself in queenstown, Armaggeddon, Ant's track and Grundy off the top of my head. One of the few places in the world were a DH bike makes sense.

 @Brasher: Love Armageddon and Ants! Sooo many different line choices. I shat myself on Killer Bee. Long travel enduros do well there

 Meh, I gotta say I really like Tracey, but this video was lame af. That whole flatting the tire thing was so stupid. He's an ex WC racer. It doesn't make any sense. She also doesn't need him to diminish himself to make her look good. She's a super fast lady, just give us some great riding footage and spare us the attempt at comedy. Bonus points for calling him a pussy though lol

 Not sure letting the tyre down on what is a effectively meant to be an advert for Kenda is a great move from Neethling

 Neethling seems like a nice guy, but he needs to inject some personality into these videos.

 What a Mishmash of trails there. Makes me wonder which one was her favourite track? Ants? How did you manage to let your air out on the bottom section of Grundy and then reappear at the halfway point. What a crap video! Seriously average. This was no doubt the same day you had a cameraman standing on a big hip landing at the end of O.G. while Tracey pushed uphill. Almost jumped onto his head. Same muppet might be responsible for this poor mans edit job

 Pretty obvious they were taking the piss for the whole riding section of the video for a laugh mate.
