We asked Alasdair to tell us the story of his  racing DH, and I bit about the struggle he’s been through to be a top racer. Al is a man of few words and a really positive guy, so he didn’t have a lot to say, but what he said was very insightful. Here are his words.

The Worlds has come and gone, and we had great fun. Alasdair raced like a champ and even got onto PinkBike. Conrad worked for the New Zealand federation team and met some great new friends. Other than all the racing and fun, it was also great to be part of the atmosphere when Greg Minnaar won his second WC title in a row, and on home soil.

Grab a cup of your favourite hot beverage and enjoy the read.

A patriotic day indeed.
