This week on the podcast, I’m joined by Danny Hart. I still find it really surreal sitting on the couch with riders like Danny who I’ve looked up to for years, but it’s awesome that they are willing to come on the show. Danny had a strong 2019 season, consistently on the podium, and taking the race win at the last round to show that he has what it takes to challenge for the overall in 2020. Hit play above and join us for a chat about his career so far, those amazing world champs wins, data acquisition, mixed wheels sized bikes, winning in Snowshoe, and plenty more.

 Now we need the podcast where Danny talks about how bike thieves should be tied to trees instead of foam pads during WC races.

 That'd be nuts. By the time you approach the finish line you realize your bike is gone.

 Nice idea but in practice the bike thieves could escape unscathed, particularly on these 'bike park' tracks, unless of course it was a form of medieval stocks so the spectators could throw rotten fruit at them/rub it in their faces. What about tying them to a stake on the side of a table top so the riders could whip their faces? Punishment as entertainment, old skool

 @fingerbangextreme: put them on the knuckle of the landing on that badly built step down at the bottom of Les Gets WC track.

 That would be a game changer. Typically you avoid the foam pads. It would be hard to ignore my gut reaction to ram them at full speed. Or better yet just case every single gap jump with a ‘pad’. “Woooo! Hart with another case to the face!! Go get em Danny.”

 Anyone else thinks PB should include timeline markers (not sure what it's actually called) for podcasts ala Redbull DH live so that we could just zoom into the segment we're interested? Sorry, I have Poid (podcast impatience disorder).

 Danny is like your lovely granny with ptsd talking about data acquisition systems. Nothing beats family dinners at fall.
