On Sunday there was a show on Discovery Channel called Adictos al Peligro (Episodio 4) in which Darren Berrecloth explains about freeride and the progress of mountainbiking. It also showed the investigation, building and testing of Marzocchi suspension forks....

I didn't get to see it, anyone did? My parents told me about it...

If someone get to see it in a while (broadcast is on thursday and sunday) could they tape it?

I think I saw it. It was about a downhill run that Darren did that was supposedly the longest one. It was in Moab.

Then didn't actually put in any Marzocchi stuff. Well, I think they did something with what looked to be a Marzocchi, but Darren said that it was developed by Specialized. Marketing... yuk! At least that was my impression. Maybe Spech just wanted to start promoting their new suspension they're going to do for the new Enduros.

They filmed a stress test on a Demo 9 bike, which was kind of nice.

And they filmed a lot of stuff of Darren explaining the different sections of the trails, which lines he must take, what he needed to avoid.

All in all, it was pretty nice.

The broadcast was on Sunday, this Thursday and Sunday is time for episode 5 which is about jumping off the London bridge... I checked on Discovery Channel site....

The schedule in the site runs until Saturday 22nd so IDK when will be the next replay...

Maybe you have the Spain signal, in which you are correct.
