Laurie Greenland is one of the few people who's shown that they are capable of taking the win at a DH World Cup amongst the current crop of incredible riders. But what does it take to stand on the top step week in, week out? In this episode, I sit down with Laurie Greeland and his friend and coach, Olly Morris, to find out what they are doing in the quest for ultimate performance. We discuss the work they undertook last winter to help Laurie acheive his goals, both on and off the bike. From planning, to testing, to race mindset, find out more about Laurie's approach and what it takes for him to lay down that winning run. The detail that goes into being world class is fascinating, and I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. So hit play above and give this episode with Laurie Greenland and Olly Morris a listen. Supporting Partners We Are One Composites 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 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.
