This Podcast number 7 Harry Clarke aka Harry Potter aka Chopstar
I started following Harry on the international downhill scene when he appeared out of nowhere representing Australia in Europe about 3 or 4 years ago.
He is an Aussie, battling the world's best in downhill racing, and consistently doing well. In his own words, he is just on the cusp of breaking into that downhill elite with a big race win. This might be the year, he has been on the podium for a few big races this year already (3rd at Arirang Hill, and 3rd at Transylvania DH).
These are the show notes. Basically anything worth linking to that explains people and products we talk about.
Harry's secret rain wheels...sorry secret family business, no links.
The story I mention at the end, is at the Shredemite Summer Outlaw series in Turramurra, Harry told me he enjoyed the podcast, and wanted to know who would be next. To which I replied, you. I thought Harry was going to have another big year (2018), and a podcast episode could document that!
Thanks for listening to the podcast. Can I ask a favour? Please subscribe and share. Really share it. I do these episodes to promote the sport of downhill skateboard racing, longboarding and skateboarding. I'm hoping they will encourage young people to get into the sport. Parents encourage their children to do more. And that anyone can become a fan, follow the skaters, go to events, enjoy the sport without having to participate, it truely is a global sport that can connect with everyone.
