Danny Hart – UK Mountain Biker’s Dad Speaks From The Heart

Whilst cover the events that took place at the 2015 UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships in Andorra, I happened to bump into Danny Hart’s father at the newly opened Santa Cruz bike shop. Danny Hart took the world by storm to take the 2011 UCI Downhill Bike World Championship title in Champery with a stunning 11 second lead over his rivals at the age of 19. A few years later I was keen to hear what not only Danny had to say but also his close family.

Now let me remind you that all these champions are nothing without the support of their family. Listen to this powerful interview of a father who clearly speaks from the heart about his son.  Thanks to Pol Espargaro, a MotoGP racer, for holding the camera for me and his infectious encouragement.
