 Wyn is not good, he is very good rider but he has an unfare advantage.........he is from the land of Gandalf and orcs and elfs. that gives him the extra edge.......he he he just kiding wheelie Master Masters. I enjoy his videos and his tweets and getting to know where they both come from makes me admire them more. I can relate to having to work to be able to race like many of us do. Cheers, Saludos

 If I ever have a daughter, and she decides to get married, and I die in the meanwhile, I'd like Wyn to give her away.

 I think that’s legally binding now you’ve said it
  • + 11
 We don't seem much like the lawyer bunch, but I'm sure there are some dentists that could legally bind his statement.

 it's getting kind of emotional in here

 Wyn's talent brings a lot to the mtb table besides racing. But after hearing about his privateering roots, much respect.

 One the hardest hustling riders out there!

 probably the only rider who does not have to rely on results to be relevant in the industry

 @cuban-b: 4years ago. the post said "rely on results" which I assumed meant the present.

 He got the wyn at the Rotorua EWS stage last year

 If riders had to have results to be relevant, meaning top 3, we would only see the same 5-10 riders all the times.
For sponsorship, nowdays, the "media appeal" and how many IG and FB followers you have count more than a world cup win. And what regional market you cover.

 @vtracer: True but he got lucky with the weather gods on that one. Eddie, though, absolutely killing it in DH and enduro this year!

 Wyn has definitely grown on me these last few years. Love to see him in the top 10. Maybe that new GT frame will shake things up a bit.
  • + 17
 Thanks for being an inspiration, Wyn!
  • + 1
 Seconded! I have a big day today and that was just the inspiration I needed - thanks Wyn!!!!! :-) total superstar!

 Underrated. This guy deserves a BIGGER-FATTER paycheck! GT, I hope you're listening...
  • + 11
 Wyn is the type of person you want representing your brand. He's a great spokesperson in the media and I would hope that his career following racing is in the broadcasting / journalism industry.
Also, man crush much. I'm not gay, but Wyn Masters is Wyn Masters.
  • + 7
 He's the kinda guy you'd sit and have a pint with and chat shit about things. Top fella.
  • + 9
 sweet as bro
  • + 3
 Having had him and a bunch of other Kiwi racers staying in a cabin behind ours in Scotland I can say the persona he uses for the interviews is no act, he's loud and joking all the time. Top bloke with a good attitude to life.

 50k on the DJ? SHEESH what an animal
  • + 10
 Yeah, when your main "road" training is 50km/day on a DJ...legend. And the front wheel probably only sees 25km/day.

 @m-t-g: it’s not even the mileage it’ll be all the playing on the way for the upper body too! Used to do that when I was about 15-20, I’d fall apart now!!’

 short of being a golfer, wyn masters has definitely found the reason he was put on this planet. so. much. style.
  • + 3
 His cousin is a top level professional golfer. Been winning on the European tour. Ryan Fox ranked 80th by the PGA. So Wyn still has a higher world ranking - a bit different when it comes to earnings tho!

 @RockstarRacingEst1996: Eddie Masters is a reported 3 handicap.
  • + 2
 @ka-brap: Yeah something like that but those are the hairless genes and Wyn missed out. Ed can play all ball sports and shit. Wyn not so much. Lol. Love's his cricket though. Loves his cricket.

 So his Uncle is Grant Fox? Never knew that...

 I need Wyn back in the top 20 wearing a cat shirt & Eddie rockin' a half open Hawaiin shirt during practice.

This season has been the death of the rebel racer. Even the Vanzacs are darn near pro looking.

Jeans, t-shirts, hoodies....speed metal, boom boxes.
Disclaimer: I am jealous of all the new clean, slim DH specific kits everyone is wearing even as I typed the above wish list

 What a great dude and great story. Love WynTV but really enjoyed getting to see Wyn ride.......super smooth style. Keep it up Wyn!

 Definitely an all round GC.

 The Spoke Tales this year have been great. I wasn't so fond of them last year but I look forward to them now. Not quite as much as the YT Mob videos, but these are great!

 Such a solid guy!! Loving the Spoke Tails series for the glimpse inside the lives of legends. Well done GT

 Wyn's the man. Love his attitude and general outlook on life. Legend.

 Wonder if the fist "chrome" bike was the new Sanction, or if it was just that single pivot prototype they built up for him...?
  • + 1
 I believe this is old sanction

 If he doesn't make you wanna go out and ride, there's something wrong with ya

 Wyn and Eddie have got to be two of the most genre shattering riders out there. Mad respect, borderline hero worship.

 Was good to see the AC/DC racing apparel! Always helps to channel the inner Munta, rock on for the Wyn!!

 Wyn is one of my favorite dudes on the circuit. Love Wyn TV and Wheelie Wednesday posts on IG. Keep it up Wyn!
