Anyone seen the Olympia Bobsleigh Run footage?

Looks like Subaru are trying to re start the publicity machine with some mental stunts as they're apparently not doing TT lap this year. This was the 2014 TT car apparently.

Awesome. Loved it.thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

 

Edit to add that Mark Higgins just has to be our best export and Manx sportsman.

Not by a mile in my book.

But then I suppose I would be classed as a petrol head and I never watch cycle races.

But we are all different I suppose.

Why? If you don't follow cycling he has no real profile. Maybe if he gets to his 40's and ends up doing bicycle stunts in Bond films I'll change my view.

I'd never discount David for that title too.

Yet another brilliant driver and so accomplished. I always think of Mark  first as he is more at ease with the media whereas David seems more reserved.

T and C must be very proud.

Cycling is actually quite a wide sport now. It is huge in a lot of Europe. Cavendish is also at the very very top of his sport.

I love rallying and am a big fan of Mark Higgins but it is very hard to make a case against Cavendish being our greatest sportsman.

Cav is a single minded lughead who rides a bike. His commentary at the Olympics was dire. He has no personality to leverage off other than being a very good pedal pusher. He's not going to be a Bradley Wiggins when his career ends. The real test, like Mark, is what you do when your competitive career ends and you stop being a one trick pony. Cav may well do that yet but he's too still young in his career to gauge.

He is so cool, always has been & he's really nice too he'll go far :)

 

Its a pity they didn't show the car after it's bob sled ride, it looked to get a bump on the head at one point.

Cavendish is a whiney little bitch in my very humble opinion.  An absolute Man Baby.

That he may be but it is hard to find a greater sportsman out of the island in terms of what Cavendish has done.

Perhaps Knighter pushes him.
