Chris consistently gets great guests with equally good technical knowledge. He asks questions really well to help get great explanations on technical mtb stuff.

Can the higher rate of injury this year come from increased stress and more maximum rides due to the semifinals beeing added?

Great guests, great insight. Highly recommended for DH fans.

Downtime always has the best guests and info, also avoids getting stuck in one sector like dh, enduro, etc. Love heading out for long rides and getting into a Downtime podcast.

I would say the best mountain bike podcast out there, I like the relaxed but informative style and the honesty that comes from Chris. If you are in to mountain bikes there is something here for you.

I highly recommend giving this podcast to listen. It provides great insight into the sport. One of the most impressive aspects of the Downtime podcast is Chris Hall’s interview style. He asks good questions and then lets the interviewee respond His style and cadence are very easy-going.

Mostly great Interviews - mostly, because not all are equally interesting to me. :)

The variation of this podcast keeps it constantly relevant and interesting each week with tech episodes, inside stories with racers and bike companies. The pre and post World Cup race shows are very insightful too.

Quite possibly one of the finest Mountain bike podcasts available

Just listened to Val Di Sole race review, it was the best one yet all on top form especially Neko. hope it can continue as is next year. Thanks

During the Lenzerheide pre-race show Chris Kilmurray said that a lot of women rely on speed to get through features because they don’t have slow speed skill… that it can be quite noticeable that they lack basic bike riding ability. Excuse me what? A majority of women in the downhill WORLD CUP...Read full review »

Generally love the show, but really disappointed to not hear any push back when Chris Kilmurray made the assertion that most women in the DH World freaking Cup are lacking “basic bike riding ability”. Would love to hear more female representation in the podcast, rather than a round table of men...Read full review »

This is a well produced and interesting podcast to listen to. From mtb elites to cool stories about fitness .There is a great depth of knowledge being shared on this “channel” on all sorts of things that are bike related! Thankyou

Just wanted to say the interview with Mike was top drawer. Lots learned and lots to think about. It’s a great opener for someone wanting to be better informed. Mikes got a great demeanour and is clearly knows his onions. Well done all.

Great guests and thoughtful questions from host 🤙
deeboiscoming12345 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 03/22/22
Chris has the podcast dialled. The conversations are natural, seem effortless and full of interesting information. The mix of guests, from racers to fitness to media and more, keep the show fresh. Keep it up!
mr. wanting more via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/01/22
This podcast is the best produced and most informative look into downhill and enduro racing. All the biggest stars and racers appear on the podcast along with the top manufacturers. The podcast is excellently produced and has no real rival in the areas that it covers.
Baileym1976 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/30/22
Absolutely my favorite podcast by far! Informative, entertaining, interesting and addicting. The combination of interviews of individuals from all around the industry, male or female, racer or engineer, to trainers and coaches, comparisons of equipment, state of the sport and industry, it’s all...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Chris since episode 1 and while I may have missed a few episodes I’ve enjoyed listening for the last few years. The last few DH seasons he’s brought the Post Race Shows and Neko and Eliot are the best co presenters for this Well done Chris, keep on podding dude!
_TimFromWales via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/21/21
Its difficult to justfy the value here just because its so saturated: UK based, Euro heavy but US commentary from Neko & Eliot: its kinda global. A wide range of interviews & input from riders, coaches, male & female, and it takes me 3-4 listens per pod to soak it up. Easily among my...Read full review »

Just started listening to this mtb podcast, but really enjoy the information and topics discussed. I myself am an avid Midwestern mountain bike rider. A++++

Chris is very well prepared for each guest and runs the interview smoothly which keeps it engaging from start to finish. Well done.

I’ve never been disappointed with any of the podcasts I’ve listened to so far, I enjoy hearing people’s backstories and how they progressed to today.

Chris does an excellent job covering all aspects of Mountain biking. Everything from gear design, production and testing to mental/physical training and coaching.

Chris does an amazing job interviewing his guests. Podcasts are always interesting and informative.
skyepeyton123 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/21/21
Not just my favourite mountain bike podcast, but my favourite podcast. I find it very relatable, and love the insight into the sport and the honesty you don’t get from the usual interviews, videos etc. Keep up the good work!
Craig Pitch via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/21
Very seldom am I disappointed with Chris’ content -if at all.
asdipbnipvun via Apple Podcasts · Thailand · 04/01/21
Just switched to Enduro from Rock Climbing. Really like the variety and letting the guests talk. Great topics.
mikemikaels12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/01/21
I've started following and listening more and more, digging back to previous episodes with Chris's guests. There are some episodes that as a mountain biker fan and "worker" you HAVE to listen to. Such as Fabien Barel or Gary Fisher!Read full review »

Absolutely love this podcast. I love hearing about the pros habits and how they maintain their performances to stay at the top. After every listen I just want to jump on my bike!!!
scottcam86 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/09/20
Chris is a great Moderator and surprises me every week with very interesting guest. I love listening to the downtime while working on bikes, driving or being on the pod. Don’t miss out and get into it !
Braandy-Mtb via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 11/13/20
Brilliant insight into the gravity orientated side of mountain biking - training, nutrition, psychology, bikes, kit, riders, race reports etc. Whatever the focus it’s always insightful and interesting. Keep up the good work Chris, it’s greatly appreciated!
b3ff via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/07/20
I listen to a few podcasts during the week and I must say this is the best one out there. If you haven’t heard this yet then get on it and listen. But not just the latest one go back over the past episodes. You won’t be disappointed. @nel.mtb

I was slow to the world of podcasts in general, but having been working from home recently (because of Covid...) I’ve got the time to listen (better late than never). I stumbled on this podcast from seeing it mentioned on a few instagram posts (Cotic, Joann Barelli etc) and have been thoroughly...Read full review »

Consistently interesting content, produced very well, and covering a really varied range of topics. Not too self-promoting or self-absorbed (like some other podcasts on other topics I subscribe to), and nicely down-to-earth. Highly recommended.
haydnwilliams via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/10/20
