Greg Herbold Interview

Sorry, this is a little late, but here are 1990 World Champion, Greg Herbolds’ views on several things…

Q: Who is going  to win the Olympic Cross Country race in Bejing?
A:I WOULD PUT MY MONEY ON  JULLIAN ABSALON, OR ONE OF THE SWISS GUYS. THE COURSE IS ALL ABOUT FITNESS AND  POWER. I THINK IT WILL BE WON ON THE LAST FEW KILOMETERS. FOR THE LADIES..GUNN  RITA DALLHA-FLESCHA.

Q: Of all the world cup level xcers, what rider  would have the best chance
at sticking a top twenty at a world cup  dh?
A:ADAM CRAIG, TODD WELLS! AND ABSALON…MOST OF THE XC GUYS ARE  ACTUALLY VERY GOOD BIKE HANDLERERS…ESPECIALLY ON WIMPY BIKES!  LIKE  TREK RIDER ROSS SCHNELL KICKING BUTT AT THE DOWNIVILLE CLASSIC.  GIVE  THEM SOME PADS AND A SWEET BIKE…AND IT WOULD NOT TAKE THAT LONG. HOWEVER IF  THEY CRASH THEY MAY BRAKE IN TWO!

Q: What world cup dher could compete  in a world cup cross country?
A: GREG MINNAR..BRIAN LOPES,

Q: How  come DH has not been included in the Olympics?
A:IT IS A DIFFICULT EVENT TO  FIND AN ACCEPTABLE COURSE AT THE VENUES, AND ALSO REQUIRES ALOT OF SPECIALIZED  TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT. THERE ARE ENOUGH RIDERS FROM ENOUGH COUNTRIES..BUT  LEGISTICALLY IT IS DIFFICULT. IT IS AWESOME TO SEE BMX SUPERCROSS IN THERE  THIS YEAR. THAT COURSE IS SICK…

Q: What is the coolest country to  race bikes in, besides the US?
A: FRANCE OR ITALY OR SCOTLAND  LOTS OF  PEOPLE GREAT COURSES, LOTS OF CYCLING CULTURE.
