Loic Bruni is a professional downhill mountain biker from France who is widely considered to be one of the best riders in the world. Known for his lightning-fast speeds, technical skills, and fearless approach to the sport, Bruni has become a dominant force in downhill racing since making his debut in 2012.

Born in Cannes, France in 1994, Bruni grew up in a family of passionate mountain bikers and began racing at a young age. He quickly developed a talent for the sport and began to make a name for himself on the international circuit, winning his first Junior World Championship in 2012.

Since then, Bruni has become a consistent contender for the top spot in every race he enters. He has won three Elite Men’s World Championships, in 2015, 2017, and 2018, and has also won numerous other races and podium finishes throughout his career.

Off the bike, Bruni is known for his laid-back and friendly personality, and is a fan favorite among mountain bike enthusiasts around the world. He is deeply passionate about the sport and is dedicated to pushing the limits of what is possible in downhill racing.


I first met Loic way back in 2015 and we have been friends ever since, but haven never managed to make our paths cross. We were both in Barcelona this week and knew we needed to make the podcast happen. This is one half interview with Super Bruni, and one half catch up between two old friends! I hope you enjoy.

This podcast is one to listen to! there’s not better story than what comes out the back of the pits!


CHAPTER 257 Ft. Anton Wass

Anton Wass is the co-founder and CEO of Stark Future. Just over a year ago they sent shockwaves (no pun intended) when they announced the Stark Var, the first ever electric dirt bike that is a real rival to our traditional combustion bikes of today.
I have spent the past week at the Stark factory in Barcelona Spain recording podcasts and doing endurance testing on the Varg and we finished the week off with this chat with Anton. Over the past 12 months Anton has become a good friend and it’s epic to get to sit down at length to talk about the future of 2 wheels!


CHAPTER 256 Ft. Jeff Emig

This one is an absolute banger with one of the greats in the sport of Motocross and Supercross. Jeff Emig was one of the sports most enigmatic figures through the 90’s and instead of retiring into the sunset post career, he started on a whole new journey in sports broadcasting. After 12 years calling the AMA Supercross he now has a new focus in the form of the World Supercross Championship with long time partner Ralph Sheheen.
