Shaun Palmer – the original bad-boy of downhill mountain biking

In these days of performance coaches, media training and ever-present cameras it's impossible to imagine a beer-swilling, hard-partying wrecking ball like Shaun Palmer bursting onto the downhill scene. But burst onto it he did in the late '90s, changing DH forever with his motocross kit and don't-give-a-crap attitude.

Don't know what we're talking about? It's time to get an education in attitude! And if you do remember Palms, get ready for a blast from the past… The generous folk at Chainsaw Productions have released the full MTB segment from last year's Shaun Palmer: The Miserable Champion online for free, complete with retro-tastic racing action, gold lamé podium suits and some truly terrible haircuts!
