Danny Hart Downhill World Champion on Dirty Dan
19 year old Brit, Danny Hart, celebrated the greatest success of his career this past weekend at the Mountainbike world championships in Champery (Switzerland): With horizontal rain and under extremely difficult conditions he secured the Downhill World Champion’s title with an incredible eleven seconds margin.
The „young gun“ of the Giant Team, who started riding Schwalbe tires from the beginning of the year, used a tire he could rely upon for this final run; a tire that was not only ideal for the deep, sticky mud but also had the right name: Dirty Dan.
The Schwalbe Product Manager must have had some kind of premonition about both the Brit and the track conditions, because the special mud tire provided for the World Championship finals was a ‚Danny Hart’ signature edition. And the personalized tire certainly brought him luck: His inimitable style and hard riding now means he’s called Danny Hart, World Champion!
