After a break of a month, Rob Warner is back with more tales from the UCI Downhill World Cup series in Rob's Dirty Business.

Determined to present an image of one big happy mountain biking family, Rob befriends some of the cross country contingent who are in Val d'Isère for the final round of the XCO World Cup.

However, he is ridiculed by some of the riders and is told that downhill racing isn’t an Olympic sport.

Rob retreats, upset and surprised, at the reaction from the riders.

He decides there is only one way to show the cross country lot who the true kings of the mountain bike circuit are and that is to run his own unique downhill Olympics featuring some of the downhill's top riders.
