Now that's how all XC/marathon racers should grow up -skills then fitness :-)

Jarryd was my partner for the wines2whales a few years back, killed me the first day, thought I could keep up.. the 2nd and 3rd day he took it a bit easier on me, did a lot of pocket holding on the climbs.. good guy :-)

LOL. Looks like he's pretty fit. Definitely has the skillset. 

 

But anyway - I'm very firm on the opinion that the starting ground for marathon / XC riders should be on the gravity / bmx side. Skills are FAR more important than fitness as a base from which to build.

Nothing like riding with Jarryd to feel old, unfit, fat, slow and technically useless.

 

Very cool video. I'd buy a Rocky Mountain if it gave me half those skills ;)

Very nice Jarryd. Keep it up Bru!

sjo, how fast is he over those technical sections :eek: - he doesn't make it look technical at all.

Oh, I wish I had even 25% of those skills!

Grew up knowing Jarryd in his Downhill days, he's always been one of my biggest inspirations to ride! Still great to see him at all the local races! Great Guy
