Apparently George W Bush enjoys mountain biking are there any other famous/celebrity mountain bikers anyone knows of. (Excluding those that do ride for a living compete in high profile events or make free ride vidoes).Just wondered, thats all.

Mike Oldfield has a couple of Marin hardtails, he rides most days. I suppose he should have a bike made from Tubular Bells. Sorry.

the lead singer of jesus jones rides as does tim comerford from audio slave/rage against the machine (but he does use bar ends with risers!!)

John Squire - guitarist in The Stone Roses - is a mountin biker. He once missed a big tour because of falling off his mountain bike - broke his collarbone IIRC.Saw an interview yesterday with Jonathan Edwards - Triple Jumper - and he was saying that he's really into mountain biking. Can't really think of any others but i'm sure others will...

MBUK once did an article on the band Reef being MTBers, but they're not famous anymore so i don't think they count.

11-01-06, 14:30
My dear chap, what the hell were you doing reading MBUK!????

11-01-06, 14:35

11-01-06, 14:53
It was in my ignorant yoof! I swear it was. If you don't believe me think about how long ago it would have to be for anyone who read MBUK to give a shit about Reef.

The only Reef MBUK readers would know about is that sickly alcopop they can get down their local corner shop!!!! WKD init!!

11-01-06, 14:57
It's borderline!It could have been a 'what are reef doing now' exposé, but I'll take your word for it as you are a pedant with an uncommonly good name.

11-01-06, 14:58
I shall be investigating this Reefer stuff later.

Mike Edwards is yer man from Jesus Jones. I once sold David Kid" Jenson a pair of Endura shorts. And then went on and sold a bike to Scary Spice for her soon to become-ex-husband. It was all over the front page of the Scum in a couple of weeks after I sold it to her. Cwiss Ewbank shopped with me as well, as did a fair number of other famous types back then."

Yes, 2 World Track Champions, 1 Olympic Gold medallist (track), a few Tour riders, oh, and 1 Tour de France winner.Oh, I fucked that post up, I didn't read what this thread was about. Still, theres nothing like showing off is there ?
