Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. I'll save anyone else the trouble.
    It's a grown man riding a bicycle in the rain down a track.

    And a set of big brass ones as well!
  5. I preferred the commentary. I'm sure there was some full on group mastarbating going on.

    The commentary box would've been awash with salty doings.

    There is excitement, and there's OTT.
  6. Well the commentators seemed somewhat excitable.
  7. Hmmmm… seems every bit of waste ground in the country must be full of 'world champions'…
  8. Yeh. Well done.
  9. explain
  10. You have 3 choices here I think.

    I'd think carefully about why dinger posted that.

    Read dingers previous posts on this site.

    Walk away whistling.
  11. While it is no doubt a big achievement for him and he will/has received recognition for his achievement in the downhill world, it is not a mainstream sport and as such you cannot expect him to be in the national media, outside of specialist magazines and maybe his local paper/news.
  12. I understand. But the same could be said for riding a bike, more so downhill. I believe dingers point was said in the vein of squddie humour. My post was in no way a meant to be a rude comment to dinger.

    My main point is that I believe track events are over rated in terms of skill and have more to do with what you are born with.
