Shan Wilson on his silver medal at Worlds, Old Mutual Joberg2c’s Craig Wapnick on the Tread Buffalo Category and developer of the MTB Trails SA app Tyrone Richards – MTB Talk SA Episode 9

We have chatted extensively over the last few weeks about the 2013 Mountain Bike World Championships that took place at the Cascades in Pietermaritzburg and over the last few weeks one name kept on popping up. So much so, that we decided to get him on this week’s show. On Episode 9 of MTB Talk SA: Shan Wilson

Brad asked Shan what went through his mind straight after the crash and when he realised he had done some serious damage. Shan also told us about the early days of professional mountain biking in South Africa as well as what he still hopes to achieve. You can .
