Downtime - The Mountain Bike Podcast
Jack Moir – A Rough Ride
Jack Moir is one of Australia’s top mountain bikers, who’s also shown that he’s more than capable of mixing it up with the best in the world. However, it’s not all been plain sailing for Jack, with a host of injuries that have taken him out of the running and team changes that haven’t always worked out the way you’d hope. We chat about those multiple collarbone breaks, developing the 29er with Intense that he went on to take to 2nd place at Fort William World Cup, the challenges of changing from the Intense team to… well… the new Intense team, and his recent move to the Enduro World Series where he’ll be riding for Canyon Factory Racing. There’s also some surf chat thrown in for good measure so hit play below and give this episode with Jack Moir a listen.

This episode is supported by We Are One Composites. We Are One have been big supporters of what I’m doing from the start, and for that I’m really grateful. They also make amazing carbon fibre wheels which are hand made in Canada, and have recently added their DaPackage bar and stem to their line up. I’m running their Faction 29er rims on my new bike, and they look and feel amazing. They’ve managed to find the sweet spot between stiffness and compliance, making a wheel that tracks, but doesn’t feel harsh to ride. They’ve got a whole line up of wheels, so there is always something to suit your needs. Head to weareonecomposites.com and check out what they have to offer. If you’re tempted, then as a Downtime listener they have kindly offered you 15% off until 30th June. All you need to do is enter the code ‘handlaid2020‘ at the checkout.
