The 1995 Grundig World Cup downhill mountain bike race video has been uploaded to the watermanatwork.com website. From analog Hi-8 video tape in 1995 to the internet in 2017, finally got around to it.

These were the glory days of mountain bike racing. Full suspension mountain bikes were just coming out, but the inch or two of suspension wasn’t much by today’s standards. Clipless pedals and primitive disc brakes appeared. Full face helmets, but not too much body armor. Not super technical by modern standards, but the Snow Summit downhill course was plenty challenging with rocky, dusty trails, off camber turns, sudden steep sections and peddling(imagine that) for two timed runs down Bear Mountain.

Check out the video HERE or click on the photo below:

We will be uploading the video to YouTube, but the video quality is always better on the watermanatwork.com website.

We’ve had plenty of time to work on these videos because the winter here in the PacNW remains challenging. Lots of snow for winter activities is what you want, but there is a point when there is so much snow and/or cold, when the novelty wears off. If you can’t get out of the driveway, you can’t do much else. More snow today, but not as cold as it’s been, so we are hoping for a blizzard-melting deal.

Work continues here at the watermanatwork.com World Headquarters. We have more mountain bike videos in the chute and kayak fishing videos and photos to get the 2017 fishing season going, whenever winter cuts loose of us. Stay tuned…

  1. Thanks for the video. Do you also happen to have the video from the or any NORBA cross country races.

    I was there and won a few but had forgotten which years, but it was 1991 and 1995.

    Thanks again,

    Rishi Grewal

  2. Hello Rishi-Nice to hear from you, hope you are doing well. I have video from the 1994 and 1996 NORBA Nationals I have to edit and put online. There are also some NORBA photos from 1990 and 1991 here: http://www.watermanatwork.com/Land/Cycling/MtBiking/VintageMTB/VintageMTB.html
