Charlie Murray is a super talented up-and-comer from New Zealand. He definitely made his mark on the Enduro World Series and World Cup downhill circuit last season. Charlie even dabbled in the e-Bike World Champs. Which, despite running out of battery mid race, has paid off pretty well for him, as you'll find out in this episode. Charlie provides great insight into what it takes to get inside the top 10 of the EWS, while still holding down a day job. We talk about training, mindset, the importance of looking after yourself and much more. Charlie has some great stories to tell, so hit play and have a listen to this episode with Charlie Murray. You can follow Charlie on Instagram @murraycharles and on YouTube here. Supporting Partners Misspent Summers Misspent Summers is a group of incredibly talented people who love riding bikes. They have just released their 2020 mountain bike yearbook, Meltdown. It's a work of art, packing 240 pages with incredible photos and writing. Which serves as a memory of some of the good times that 2020 managed to provide. It’s a great read and a beautiful addition to any coffee table. Also, given how unique 2020 was, it really is a piece of history. I’m stoked to say that they even asked me to write a little article for it, which is a massive honour. So that’s in there for you to read too. You can get your own copy by heading to misspentsummers.com/meltdown and as a Downtime listener, you can get yourself a lovely free Misspent Summers wall calendar with your copy of Meltdown until the end of March using the code ‘meltdowntime’ at the checkout. Canyon Bikes This episode is supported by Canyon Bikes. Canyon has just updated their eBike range, and they now all feature the amazing Shimano EP8 motor, providing 85Nm of torque. They've also launched a brand new model, the Torque:ON with 180mm travel, 63.5 head angle and a playful ride for all your gravity needs, without a chairlift or a shuttle. If that's a bit much then there's the 150mm Spectral:ON that will enable you to cover much more ground on your trail rides, and the 130mm Neuron:ON and hardtail Grand Canyon:ON too. What's even better is that they are currently in stock in most countries. If they aren't in stock with you, then they will be soon and you can sign up for a notification on the Canyon site. So if you're interested in an eBike this year, then head over to canyon.com now and check them out.
