Who Reckons Greenwood Is Making Nz Riders Look Like Pussies?

Who reckons Greenwood is making NZ riders look like pussies?
So far on Drop In, all he's done is bitch and whinge about every location they've been to.
And the weather - I quote: "Not impressed - there was water and mud and we got all dirty"
And the trails - "Not impressed - I had to pedal" (this one begs the question - you may be in the wrong sport there son, if you don't like pedalling. As far as I can see, riding bikes usually requires pedalling...correct me if I'm wrong.)
Just about every rider on the tour doesn't seem to like him much.
And in the last episode he was sulking about something, and didn't want to ride because he'd get dirty.

So Nathan Greenwood - I am not impressed with your attitude to riding bikes. Do it to have a laugh, don't take yourself that seriously fella.

What do you guys reckon? Is he giving us New Zealand riders a bad rep?

I've only seen a few eps of Drop In, and dont know any of the history, so here's my unbiased opinion - Nathan Greenwood is a tool. Of all the people that could be riding with those guys...

i dont know about looking like a pussy, but he kinda does come off looking like a bit of a twat!

Although Reon Boe stepped up ( literally) for the kiwis last night! Good shit fella!

But Mr Greenwood, its almost a joke now, especially his hissy fit last night about the 4wd goin down the hill.

Meh - there are more than enough guest riders to make sure that viewers don't think that NZ riders are pussies.

Moan all you like, diva, but when the camera is rolling....

There is a really good interview with Cedric Gracia in the current Dirt about media training and the state of mountain bikings image.

He was certainly frank about a lot of things. His comments on the state of urban/slopestyle/winsome mtb vs bmx are hilarious. But tempered with something of a call to arms. Best article in Dirt for ages.

I don't watch drop in anymore, partly because I can't be arsed watching some clown cry about everything and everyone (well that's how it comes across on TV anyway).

He's not a pussy....he can certainly ride a bike from what I've seen. Judging from his comments regarding food ,the heavily lidded eyes and general lax attitude I'd have a punt and say he is a stoner from way back...... :paranoid: :paranoid: :paranoid: .

Prima donna syndrome also springs to mind when he is moaning and bitching . I sooo wanna cut his ponytail off ! Good rider though :thumbsup:

His hissy fit about his bike getting thrashed gained him more respect from me. Good to see he actually cares about his bike, even when it probably didnt cost him anything.
