In this episode I was lucky enough to sit down and chat with none other than the legend himself, Brook Macdonald. We chat about racing, injuries, and the road back to the bike. We also have a chat about how he first got to the world cups and what it takes to get on that top step.

As per usual huge thanks to Jordo from FSR Media for the Production, to the legends at Craftworks for keeping merolling, and Dirtsurfer for keeping the mud off my face.I am super happy with how this turned out, if you want to listen to more follow me at beyondthetape.podcast on instagram, subscribe where all good podcasts are casted, and I would love any feedback to make this better.
