Sam Dale interview

We ask Cannondale rider Sam Dale a few last time questions.

When was the last time:
You upset your neighbours?

Most days when I make ruts in the gravel over the road from me.

I had a pretty funny crash in the Garbanzo DH in Whistler, I was pedalling across a North Shore bridge and my front wheel slipped off it, went to the ground on my head and cut my forehead.

You brought something you didn’t need?

I took a Euro plug adaptor to Canada for a month. I didn’t need that!

You heard a good joke? (What was it?)

Husband and wife…


Husband – Aaah! …At last! I can hardly wait!
Wife – Do you want me to leave?
Husband – No! Don’t even think about it.
Wife – Do you love me?
Husband – Of course! Always have and always will!
Wife – Have you ever cheated on me?
Husband – No! Why are you even asking?
Wife – Will you kiss me?

Husband – Hell no! Are you crazy?!

I can’t remember, thanks maxxis!

Driving in the wet this morning, almost wrote some dudes car off.

When was the last time:

I saw the biggest bear in whistler when I was about to walk home one night.

I don’t! Haha

When was the last time:
Did a good deed?

In Whistler we were at a BC/DC gig, we were all rocking out and some dude went down. So I helped him back up.

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

Sunday night after the Bromont world cup, Steve, Greg and some xc dude had enough money on the bar to make me try and down a jug of lager, I almost had it!

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

I snapped a chain last week… I must have been in the gym too much.
