    Default tMTBs Ep 19 Olympics hopeful Chris Jongewaard

    OK Guys a longer interview this time but these are important discussions. As the representative of the MTB community should Chris go to the Olympics? He's our strongest rider by a long shot, but as many of you know a stupid night and some silly decisions (not just by Chris, ALLEGEDLY) and the results are several guys lives are left in tatters.
    Was the intent there? Chris Olympics are still on the line, he might find out later this week, if so expect more media.

    The fat lady has sung. He's exhausted all options. What a terrible situation for all concerned.
