Transcript from ‘BMX Legend! Andy Ruffell’ podcast

Andy – Yes I must admit I suffer that problem. I’ve been doing a bit of mountain biking the last six months or so and it’s been a game changer, but I kind of tend to ride like I did years ago. You know you never forget how to ride a bike, you just become old and fat and it becomes much harder to ride a bike. So I’ve found out to my cost.

Transcript snippet from ‘British Bobsleigh Pilot | Adam Baird’ podcast

Chris and Adam

C – Adam how are you brother?

A – Yeah very well Chris thank you, how are you?

C – Yeah I’m firing mate, and I’m really excited for this chat. People will get sick of me saying this, but I started doing this podcast to chat to fascinating people who do stuff that I would like to do! Or stuff that I have done. Funny enough, you might not believe this but I have done the bobsled.

A – Have you really?

C – Yeah, I say it tongue in cheek because I did the tourist taxi bob, but it was still the full on experience.
