If you think DH World Cup riders have an exciting, glamorous life, then perhaps you should think again. Being a professional MTB rider is a rigorous and dangerous job that can keep a young lad on a shoestring budget very busy. No massage therapists, no personal assistant, not even a mechanic. There are considerably less staff around Bernard Kerr’s caravan than you can spot at some of the big team trucks in the World Cup pit area but there is a definite sense of determination in the air and a feeling that he has, not only the talent, but the will, to go all the way. And Bluegrass is proud to support him.
