Downhill and Enduro Yearbooks 2019

It’s pretty amazing to think that we are currently working on the fourth edition of Hurly Burly — the downhill yearbook — with The World Stage 3 simultaneously in production.

When we started producing these annual roundups of the UCI DH World Cup and Enduro World Series, it was through passion for the sport and the desire to have a permanent record of each season of racing. Everything about every race in one place.

We’ve come a long way since 2016 when we began making these books — and we’ve produced plenty of other publications in that time — and now in 2019 our team of contributors and the production crew are bigger and stronger than ever.

Stay tuned for Hurly Burly 4, the 2019 downhill yearbook, out late October; and The World Stage 3 Enduro World Series yearbook, out late November. Two real treats just in time for Christmas.

Dean Lucas talks to John Hall and Aaron Pelttari – AOTE Podcast

Dean Lucas talks to John Hall and Aaron Pelttari -
An Off track experience

Dean Lucas is just off the back of a 10th place finish at the last World Cup in Les Gets, but he’s also been spending time with some of the most interesting figures in WC racing, for his (relatively) new podcast called An Off Track Experience.

During Les Gets last weekend he sat down with John Hall and Aaron Pelttari, the mechanics for Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan.

“On this episode of the podcast I sit down with two of the most well know and charismatic mechanics on the world cup circuit. They are both lucky enough to be able to wrench at a world cup level and call it a full time job. Former team members and now good friends John Hall and Aaron Pelttari along with their riders Aaron Gwin and Troy Brosnan have racked up countless wins and overalls together in recent years. With ridicules speed week in and week out and floorless consistency out of both of these rides you always wonder how much of that comes from them and how much comes from the people they have around them making sure everything is dialled.

With our sport being won and lost by the smallest of margins every little bit counts so having complete faith in your mechanic and being able to work through a race weekend more efficiently might just give you that 1% you were looking for.

Lets see what they think.

Enjoy the chat!”

Well worth a listen.

Les Gets World Cup Course Talk with Eliot Jackson

We are out here soaking up the atmosphere and coughing up the dust of Les Gets World Cup. And what a race it promises to be! Flat out from start to finish, the track, which hasn’t changed a great deal since 2004 World Champs, is quite unlike anything else on the World Cup circuit. Probably best let the pros talk us through it, so here’s Eliot Jackson with a dose of positivity and insight.

Finals Results – Andorra World Cup 2019

Hurly Burly Hoodie

Oooo you do like that maroon colour, don’t you? We certainly do. And we like Hurly Burly, the downhill yearbook. We like it so much we’d even wear it, but that isn’t possible because it’s a book. Instead, we got this hoodie made with the Hurly Burly logo on it.

Check it out and buy yourself one here. Comes in black too, if you are kind of low key and stealth. Thank you very much in advance for your support. You make our wheels go round (vom).
