Mitch Delfs Interview

We ask Australian downhill rider Mitch Delfs a few “Last time” questions.

When was the last time:
You upset your neighbours?

When I was riding my fast 50, the next door caravan park crew kept coming over and trying to stop me as I went passed, but I kept on doing laps, they got full devo, ha-ha

When was the last time:
You won a race?

It was a Canada cup, last year; Jurgen Beneke was there, so I was stoked to beat him cos he is a pinner.

When was the last time:
You hurt yourself?

At the World Champs, I cut the tackle box open, best run ever, I hit the deck three times in the final and on one of those crashes snapped my seat on my two babies, gnarly.

When was the last time:
You brought something you didn’t need?

Some phone credit, I dropped me phone in a fire at a mate’s fire bomb party, getting a bit loose!!!

When was the last time:
You heard a good joke? (What was it?)

10 mins ago, God said let there be light, Chuck Norris replied, say please!!!

When was the last time:
You fixed a puncture?

At a Germany ixs cup, I was warming up near the start and I got a flat doing a few turns about 10 mins from me start time, full rush but I got there just in time.

When was the last time:
You scared yourself?

When I cut my balls open, I thought I was done, they could’ve fallen out, it was crazy.

When was the last time:
You saw something that made you go “Holy Shit!”

Surfing this wave called Rabbits near home and I pulled into the sweetest barrel (when ya inside the wave, ha-ha) then I came out after like a couple of seconds, it was so sick, yew.

When was the last time:
You did some actual digging with a spade?

Yesterday in the vineyards, working like a full mad dog, I love the shovel

When was the last time:
You heard a really good song?

My mate was mixing drum and bass on his decks at another mate’s house, Chase and Status were playing a bit, it got wild.

When was the last time:
You broke the law?

It’s not illegal if you don’t get caught

When was the last time:
Did a good deed?

If having a duty free booze party is a good deed, then it was 2 weeks ago, yewww!

When was the last time:
You puked your guts up?

In a Swiss bar, with the Bashie bros, sooo wild, it was straight after Austria.

When was the last time:
You bust something on your bike?

At the German ixs cup after Austria, last practice run before race, I bent me crank enough so I couldn’t pedal; the hammer came out, so it was all good.

When was the last time you:
Felt so good, you thought you could fly?

Riding down Schladming, it is the best track ever to ride a DH bike, yewww!
