Pro Bike Check: Laurie Greenland's Mondraker Summum

Laurie Greenland's first year as a senior showed that the youngster is continuing to build on his stellar junior career, landing inside the top-10 in the World Cup overall and capping it all off with a fantastic 2nd place finish behind team mate Danny Hart at the 2016 World Champs. We caught up with Laurie at the finish line of the track here in Lourdes where he just completed the Red Bull course preview run with Claudio Caluori. Listen in as we chat to Laurie about the track changes, his off-season, his bike, and his thoughts on the arrival of the 29er in the World Cup.

Laurie looking comfortable and ready to send it into 2017.

Laurie would probably have preferred not having an off-season for 2016, given how hot his riding was at the end of last year, but he made the most of it with a long stint in the Southern Hemisphere and plenty of time on the bike. We've no doubt he's ready to go!

Laurie's Mondraker Summum, with fresh new paint and some new parts.

Apart from making a move to Shimano for drivetrain and brakes, MS Mondraker have remained with the same partners for 2017.

No wild and wonderful wheelsize to be seen yet...at least not for now!

What does Laurie think of 29ers in DH? We tried our best to find out, but his answers might leave you with more questions. Listen to what he had to say below, and stay tuned to this space!
