Jamie Edmondson – A Breakthrough Season

Downtime - The Mountain Bike Podcast show

Summary: <br> Jamie Edmondson came to most people’s attention when he took a podium at the last round of the World Cup in Lousã. However, his climb to the top steps of the sport started way before that. We chat about his early race career, his challenging junior years, what it takes to go privateer, how knowing Ben Cathro comes in handy and much more. So hit play below and join me for a chat with Jamie Edmondson.<br> <br> <br> <br> You can follow Jamie on Instagram <a href="https://www.instagram.com/jamie_edmondson/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@jamie_edmondson</a>.<br> <br> <br> <br> Supporting Partners<br> <br> <br> <br> NF<br> <br> <br> <br> <a href="https://www.ridenf.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">NF</a> stands for Needs Factory, and the name comes from their design philosophy of making products that have everything you need, but nothing more and nothing less. That philosophy can clearly be seen in the riding pants, where they have decided to use an elasticated waist… no zip, no fastener, just a simple solution that’s incredibly effective.<br> <br> <br> <br> I’ve been riding in their <a href="https://www.ridenf.com/collections/pants" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">DP3 pants</a> and I have to say they’ve hit this one out the park. The fit is great, the elasticated waist is so simple and so comfortable. They just work! <br> <br> <br> <br> If you want to support a small family business making meticulously rider-focussed clothing in an ethical way, then <a href="https://www.ridenf.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">NF</a> is the brand for you… Head to <a href="https://www.ridenf.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">ridenf.com</a> to find out more and use the code ‘downtime‘ up until the end of 2020 for 10% off your order.<br> <br> <br> <br> Podcast Stuff<br> <br> <br> <br> My webstore is BACK!
