You Could Say, British Commentators Get A Little Excited…
So what do you do in a country where car racing is restricted by crazy environmentalists, and there are no gun ranges open to the citizens? Downhill bicycling of course! Well, what we call mountain biking. It's set up on a pretty intimidating course, and the task is easy... Be the fastest person down the mountain.
So this happened in 2011 at the Downhill World Championships. This rider, as you'll hear a thousand times in the video above, is named Danny Hart. If you didn't guess, he's a pretty big deal in the world of downhill racing. He has a couple of world titles to his name, but this was the first time he actually made an impact. A young 20 years old, throwing caution to the wind, and reaping the rewards afterwards.
I think the commentary guys should be the official PGA tour guys on the golf channel.
