 Yeah, he certainly isn't a Sheppard

 NOOOO not Dan Milner again! his interviews are awful

 same here, watched seasons with a friend and his segment got me so stoked. the gap is still one of the most memorable things in mtb history for me!
  • + 4
 Well watch Robbie Burdons roadgap than

 that moment when then and than are not the same...

 10min Matt can't get back. witty interviewer attempt isn't really workin here.

 I wish that Matt would have been my brother, like that I would be so much more a better rider.

 Few questions. Why are you sponsored? Why don't you ever compete in anything? Do you know what happened to Super T Klassen? Or Wayne Goss for that matter? Do you ever wish you could be as good as Cam McCaul? Did you wonder if the Brit realizes that Canada has the largest land area of any current country so it's only as dreadful & dreary as Britain on the coasts?

 Ha ha. Its a bit of fun, but soooo much hate! So here's the gig: I asked Matt if he wanted to do an interview, and he said "yes, but only if its NOT the same old questions as I always get asked. I just did a few of the same interviews and one for Dirt mag.." So thats how this format came about, and the seemingly random nature of the questions.. however listen to his answers and you'll get more insight into his character. Go search, you'll find the "same old questions" asked of Matt out there on the internet if you want them. So to help you out and paraphrase the above interview questions in the "same old" format: Q1: How proud are you of being Canadian? Q2: How gnarly are the things you ride (are you ever scared)? Q3: How is the travel thing work for you? Q4:Whats it like riding trails among dangerous wild animals? Q5: How in touch are you with bike mechanicals or as a pro do you have a team mechanic? Q6: How do you get out of a scrape in the wilds? Q7: Sterling Lorence is the best bike photographer in the world, right? Q8: Lets help non-canadians understand Why Canada produces such strong riders and why it's not all BC green forest in the pics (hey, not every rider is actually Canadian). Q9: Do you aspire to improve or are you happy with where you are now? Q10: Well I guess we have to get him back for that one... It's a bit of fun people. Enjoy it while it lasts.

 Well you just ask pointless cringe worthy questions that nobody wants to know the answers to. It's like you're trying to be Rob Warner but failing miserably, no offence but try asking more sensible questions next time that most bikers would like to hear about.
  • + 4
 fair play to ya, dan. it just wasn't coming across as fun for me. i think EuanB is on point with the warner observation.
  • + 3
 Don't stop Dan, I really like them. Pissed my self when the Father Ted clip came up. I guess it could well be an age thing though... a lot of it is just lost on most here. Shame really.

 video currently unavailable?! bummer!

 ya dude weak sauce

 ye they need to get something a bit stronger like bbq
  • + 2
 germany sucks when it comes to youtube
  • + 2
 Umm, this is vimeo?
  • + 1
 Yeah it was Youtube before and it wasn't working France either, so they changed the link.
  • + 19
 I thought he was joking about 'oh we ran out of time, we wont get to hear your tip for aspiring free riders'.. that would be the number one question i'd like to hear an answer to! Here's Matt giving up his time to do this an interview and that absolute spade of an interviewer doesn't have the decency to let him finish his question. Good job by the deer i say..
  • + 11
 Possibly one of the worst interviewers I've ever seen, he's not funny in the slightest!
  • + 3
 haha the fellow brits are the ones hating the most!
  • + 1
 This interviewer is trying so hard to be funny and failing all the way through. Well I assume so, I couldn't be f*cked to listen to all of this toss.

If you're reading Dan: you're not supposed to be the star of the show, the interviewee is.

 Great interview. So good to see some clever questions for a change. And even funnier is the haters with no sense of humor. "Oh we ran out of time..." LMFAO!

 agreed

 Mat Hunter is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE RIDERS! However, I hate the person who's doing the interview....damn annoying and so not funny.
  • + 0
 It is british humor, like Monty Python... This is absurd humor... Well, sure this is much less funny than Python's movies
  • + 0
 ..
  • + 11
 I'm Scottish and it still isn't funny, the guys just a douche
  • + 15
 Was anyone else pissed off he cut off the last question?
  • + 9
 Plus, he said 10 questions, 10 minutes and the video only lasts 8.54 minutes!!
  • + 5
 When he finally ask an interesting question runs out of time. WTF.
  • + 14
 Sees grisly bear run into woods.. Then rides into woods. Be afraid bear. There's a Hunter after you
  • + 13
 I couldn't watch it all, the guy starts off by insulting him, what a prick. Shame he didn't get raped by that stag.
  • - 1
 Agreed
  • + 10
 We definitely need more 10 Question videos with more riders, it is hell of a fun and great to watch!
  • + 4
 Hella fun...?
  • + 1
 Thanks. Appreciate that 1 in a 100 might like to smile sometimes.
  • + 1
 I HATE to smile.
  • + 3
 Maybe fart jokes are more PB style no one seems to get Dans humour. I do but maybe its cos Im a pom but I think these do give a bit of an insight into the humour of Matt one of the greatest riders ever. And doesnt everyone wish they were British? Thats not an insult and Matt didnt take it that way.
  • + 3
 Judging by the comments I'm not missing much when the video fails to play. Mat hunter is awesome and I would like to see someone good interview him. I will glafly pass on seeing the not funny douchebag interviewer again. Seriouslly pinkbike, get better interviews.
  • + 6
 Hunter rocks.... but Milner sucks. My dog could probably come up with more insightful questions than that muppet.
  • + 5
 but does he look as good on camera?
  • + 2
 Yeah didn't like the Bear claw interview. Didn't mind this one so much as I knew what was coming. It was funnier than last time if only for seeing the Stag attack Dan. Saw Dan's own video recently of a MTBing trip. Knowing he's a rider makes me less critical somehow.
  • + 2
 well matt seemed to jive well with dan's humour and i personally thought it was just super terrific but maybe that's cause we share a queen. people really gotta take sh!t less seriously. i hope they don't ride bike with that stick up there. more ten questions interviews i say!
  • + 1
 That type of so called interview is getting much more annoying every time. You can get the best riders of all time and still have ruined the conversation.

BTW: how stupid U have to be to stand in front of a deer hoping that he won't follow his nature and hit You directly in the face.
  • + 1
 I really wanna defend this interviewer because some questions aren't half bad but after cutting off that last question and being silly over substance, I just can't. I wish we could watch some honest interviews with these mountain bike pros. I would love to hear from each Atherton, Gwin, Peatie, Minaar, Hart, Smith, Hill, Brosnan, Gracie and many others in a more serious setting. 15 minutes of honest questions to get into their head and hear favorite memories, their influences, favorite areas to ride, and what they want to see in the future of the sport. Please, PInkbike, if you could somehow figure out a way to make this happen, there would be MANY happy and inspired riders out there.
  • + 2
 Dear Pinkbike, PLEASE do us, and yourselves, a favor and get rid of this interviewer! He is horrible! Why did he cut off that last question? Why do you continue to produce this guys garbage? Can I take his place?
  • + 4
 You'd have to move to Europe and give up your big car.
  • + 3
 Funny Dan.. I am actually from the U.K., but you didn't know that.. I don't dislike you as a person, maybe I was just having a bad day and took it out on your interview.. my apologies M8..
  • + 3
 Matt you exemplify the best in mtn biking. I bet that cougar thought, "damn that was Matt Hunter!"
  • + 1
 That is hilarious!
  • + 0
 That may have been the worst interview I have ever witnessed. I know that he was trying to take the piss with most of the questions but Milner came off like an uninformed wanker. How can you possibly screw up an 'lay up" interview like Matt Hunter? Can someone please return the last 10 minutes that was stolen from me? Thanks.
  • + 3
 Hahaha I love these interviews. Dan Milner is great, such a refreshing change of journalism. Awesome stuff.
  • + 2
 This was a bit better than the bog standard, dull as you like interviews. Welcome to the internet, the home of anonymous hate.
  • + 3
 Matt's a great rider and cool dude, well done Dan!
  • + 1
 Haha amazing interview! i also pissed myself when father ted came up... feck offff cup! Please keep em coming dan, loved it
  • - 1
 I really don't like the last part where Dan had abruptly stopped Matt on answering the last question,Matt was even composing an answer already, it is a bit disrespectful just my POV.
  • + 2
 Great idea, but what a bad ass interviewer!
  • + 2
 That squirrel scream scared the piss out of me
  • + 1
 How dare anyone insult Matt Hunter like that! I like how Matt used honesty to say fuck you to the interviewer's ignorance.
  • + 1
 The questions could be better.... definitely better!!!
  • + 2
 Rampant bemusement
  • + 2
 I'd go gay for Hunter
  • + 26
 he's too much man for you to handle
  • + 0
 Hey, what's wrong with Americans??? I'll let it slide cause it's Hunter.
  • + 7
 i think his point is that he would like to be recognizable as a canadian rather then be mistaken for being from a country that is not his own.."Just a humble proud Canadian is all eh"
  • + 1
 Where did the video go??
  • + 0
 Milner, ya prick!
