More than 300 riders from 16 different nations made their way to the future World Cup track for an exciting race weekend. Lenzerheide seems to have a big plan for the future: […]

Introducing The new Segment From Orange

Introducing The new Segment From Orange

The Segment. Divides opinions. Conquers trails. Designed to be the fastest all-rounder we could make, the Segment takes preconceptions about what is possible on a short travel bike and pulls them apart. A 120/110mm travel 29er that can ride way beyond its travel figure, the Segment balances its inherent big-wheel unflappability with a taught and […]

The new Orange Alpine 160 – Yorkshire born, Alps bred.

The new Orange Alpine 160 – Yorkshire born, Alps bred.

The Alpine 160 is our no-nonsense take on a bike designed to be ridden and raced on the most brutally demanding trails in the world, so we make no apologies for putting reliability, rider control and predictable suspension performance top of our list when it came to designing it. We’re not interested in making a […]

Rapid Racer Products “EndurOGuard”

It doesn’t seem that long ago that the only options for keeping trail splatter out of your face was a makeshift piece of discarded inner tubing and a few zip ties fashioned around your lower crown and the brace of your fork. Later on, there was the floppy moto style of the THE fender…which to […]

SDA Scottish Championships Glencoe

SDA Scottish Championships Glencoe

The red route isn’t a downhill track, it’s for cross country bikes isn’t it? Well I have 2 smashed wheels and a massive smile on my face that would disagree with you. Glencoe is famous for it’s insanely difficult black route. The Scottish Champs was raced on that track back in a wet 2009 and […]

Fort William World Cup Finals – A new club member.

Ossssha bugger is a phrase my Grandad used to use with frequency when he saw Vatanen, Clark and others of the BDA era pushing on through the confines of pudershaw. Had he been at Fort William yesterday he’d have been lost for words. A top three made up of Brosnan, Hill and Hart was not […]

Fort William. Getting to the business end. Saturday Qualifying.  

Fort William. Getting to the business end. Saturday Qualifying.

Well that’s a relief. After some fairly heavy schedule changes, that included opening the gondola at 6.30 am for practice in case of the forecasted storms closing in. All riders had to be at the top by 10 am, which led to some long warm ups and perhaps some over contemplation for a few. Either […]
