Anyone who thinks that xc is tame or boring should really come and spend a day with a race team! You may think that we are tame, but when I raced in the youth championships on the olympic track (don't believe the 'not technical' claims) we ended up having a whip competition! Oh yeah, and Marco is a badass.

Gerhard Kerschbaumer...sounds typical Italian...what kind of Italian dialect is he speaking?
(Nov 22, 2012 at 13:26)

Just get kind of annoyed when they always criticize us XC guys for wearing LYCRA and shaving our legs. We have reasons for doing that, because we don't wear knee pads and it's hard to get blood out of hair, and our clothes can't get snagged on our saddle because it's high enough that is a possibility. We don't criticize you guys because you have your awesome talents and we have ours, but we can easily make fun of you for having to rely on so much travel, to name one thing. You have your reasons for that as well, although we can fight back when it comes to making fun of the other discipline.

I'd still be spinning in granny only half way up. Meanwhile that stomping fast dude is back in town sipping on a cappuccino.

nice vid...anybody know the sound track??
(Nov 22, 2012 at 13:28)
I'm pretty sure it's a remix of "Summer Breeze" by The Isley Bros, not sure who the remix is by though.

Not in Italy, nor in the 80's metal scene.....you're being very rude young man, wash your mouth out...

I'm not trying to be a dick, just sick of all these downhillers who don't really know the demands of XC racing
(Nov 25, 2012 at 17:13)
Take it easy man ...
... nothing personal ... just my opinion ...
(Nov 27, 2012 at 13:26)
yeah kind of came out wrong
didn't really see the context of your comment
im just used to downhillers making fun of xc guys- i saw "too much spandex" and assumed that was what it was
(Dec 5, 2012 at 10:07)
I've been an xc rider from 89 till 96 .. and much of my friends currently ride also xc ..
.. i think it's better to make fun of posers and wannabes .. no matter if they ride dh, xc, bmx etc ...
