“I think my riding style is quite smooth, until race run,” says two-time downhill world champion Danny Hart. “Then it starts getting a bit sketchy, a bit wild sometimes—that’s when you’re going fast. So it’s fine.”
A quintessential downhill racer, Hart is an astute student of the sport—known to study courses, test new technologies and experiment with lines—while having the ability to apply all his learnings, and ride to his fullest potential, when it counts: The final race run.
“When it comes to the final race run,” Hart says, “I know that I’ve done everything I can in my power to have the best run possible.”
