WynTV: Track Walk Cairns DH World Championships 2017

Sep 6, 2017
by Pinkbike Staff  

How confident do the riders sound? Will Sam Hill win on his Enduro bike? Will Greg Minnaar's bike hold up till the end? Will Aaron Gwin finally win his world champs stripes? Wyn Masters hits the track...

Also, what does he mean by rainbow strips in the EWS? Hmm....


MENTIONS: @wynmasters / @GTBicycles

 His mannerisms dude, he's the Vito Corleone of WC DH. Hilarious.
  • + 26
 Danny reminds me of the Sloth from Zootopia named "Flash". Once that connection was made i cant un-see it.
  • + 10
 That was the best ever short interview with him Smile ever!!!
  • + 1
 tired with my honesty? Fakofffff
  • + 1
 Couldn't even stop it - had to rewind and watch the rest when my eyes where dry again... oh man this was a killer!
  • + 2
 Damn Daniel! That was too good! Smile
  • + 86
 Am I the only one who wants Sam to win this?
  • + 8
 Hell no!!! I want him to wear the rainbow jersey to his last EWS race. If it's dry as it is right now I'd say it will be between Sam and Aaron, both like that slick as ice shit.. If Sam is really going to go for it that is, he'll have more cranking power that's for sure.

 @mbiker35: You can only wear the rainbow stripes in the discipline in which you won it, so regardless of Sam winning or not, he won't be wearing rainbow stripes at any EWS event.

The only way an EWS rider can wear rainbow stripes is if the UCI takes over EWS and then gives it World Championship Status, i.e. a ONE OFF Enduro.
  • + 4
 @handynzl: well he can on the plane...lol
  • + 6
 @handynzl: since EWS isn't UCI, couldn't he just wear whatever he'd like to? And couldn't they make an EWS world champs without the UCI?
  • + 1
 @Ohlalaa: They can declare him EWS champ but they cannot give him an EWS rainbow striped jersey. The UCI somewhat managed to trademark the rainbow stripes....
  • + 2
 @Ohlalaa: The UCI would probably prosecute him at the Hague if he did that.
  • + 2
 How hilarious would it be if he won and didn't race any DH stops? The old, crusty bastards at the UCI would shit their pants and pass some kind of BS rule preventing it from happening again. "OMG no rainbow jersey at the DH races?? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO!?!?!?"
  • + 2
 @handynzl: he'll get them tatted on...
  • + 47
 Where is Jack Moir! Good Luck Sam! I hope you smash it and come away with the strips.

 These Wyn TV episodes are still getting better each time. An essential part of my race week fan prep. Very entertaining and good quick interviews. Great job, Wyn!
  • + 35
 Sam should have said "it seems to be standing up to the ews races and they're a lot rougher than this"
  • - 3
 Surely not..... Razz
  • + 30
 "Maybe more girls would come" is right Elliot, cuz right now all I'm seein is MORE DUDEEES
  • + 20
 Elliot Jackson is once cool mofo.
  • + 6
 He's THE man ! Coolest dude on the circuit !
  • + 2
 @Joooey: and hes got some great style riding.
  • + 14
 haha sweet baby jesus Danny has his shirt off for a reason... damn boy is shimmering in the sun like a reflective object lmao
  • + 2
 Yeah, it's like a frickin' laaaaayzer beam is currently blinding us here in NZ
  • + 1
 Speaking from experience, Redcar doesn't see much sun. 10 deg (Celsius) and raining is our happy place.
  • + 9
 I'd actually watch the news on TV again if Wyn was the anchorman, it'd be like a cross between Ron Burgundy's wit, David Attenborough's professionalism and factual accuracy and Jesus for his reputation.
  • + 7
 I'd like the finish to be like 100m into the water... that would turn it into a thriathlon with possibility of getting eaten by a fkng shark... it would make for some funny tyre choices. Do fatbikes float?
  • + 3
 Or torn to bits by a saltwater croc

Fat bike will float, trouble is staying on it...

 What about that rumour on a UCI enduro world championship next year? Any more info?
  • + 3
 I'm curious. Can't see a reason enduro needs the UCI. Ok, there's something about the rainbow stripes but not for that trade off...
  • + 3
 @jzPV: it needs the UCI for drug testing and that's about it
  • + 1
 If true then they'll have a one off round for the World Champs stripes, and a World Cup (current EWS format). No other cycling discipline has a series to crown World Champions, be it road, MTB, BMX, or synchronised bicycle riding (yes it's a thing with UCI Rainbow Stripes up for grabs)
  • + 1
 @handynzl: That's what I thought,the example for the past years being the 4X worlds still being run without a UCI sanctioned world cup. Can't see it being bad for enduro or the fans.
  • + 2
 @YungSketchy: LOL yeah because we know how reliable the UCI is at drug testing..... f*ck the UCI, they have nothing positive to contribute to the discipline.
  • + 8
 Was anyone else waiting for Brosnan to say 'have fun'?
  • + 1
 Yeeeaaaaahhhhh!!
  • + 2
 Surprised he didn't say "Just gonna ride my bike".
  • + 6
 Minnaar for his 20th Worlds. That's pretty neat
  • + 1
 But I bet he becomes tired being asked questions as if he stepped down already.
  • + 6
 No SIK MIK / Moir / Bruni / GWIN ?
  • + 6
 where can one procure a marsh guard bucket hat? asking for a friend..
  • + 3
 Danny Hart is just so chill when he's not on a bike.... and when he's throwing it down the track... he's still kinda chill.
  • + 9
 Needs more chills when he gets to the bottom and didn't get the run he was hoping for tho
  • + 5
 No Tahnee?
  • + 3
 Can't get over Minaar in that hat... fully looks like a barbershop quartet singer
  • + 2
 "Giving Loris some tips" Big Grin haha
  • + 1
 So, what did Wyn say to Kerr when the camera cut out? That's what we want to know. Did he grill him? BIRDnar Kerr?
  • + 1
 Ahh Danny just killed it. "That wasn't a hill, it was a mountain."
  • + 1
 best one yet. Danny had me rollin!
  • + 1
 A bike-race! Should be rain coming in this weekend for sure...
  • + 2
 by far the best one yet
  • + 1
 Always leaves me wanting more. Nice work Wyn!
  • + 1
 Missed Moir
  • + 4
 Yeah
  • - 1
 Danny for the win, but I'd like to see Sam take that Nukeproof to a podium spot.
