2) Beat your mate. Not much better than getting one over on your mate is there?
3) It could be your last chance. DH is changing fast. It’s a fantastic sport that anyone can participate in. Heck, race Fort William on a hardtail (Like Chris Hutchens used to) and you’ll e immortalised for ever.
4) The motor way jumps. Bar the 50:01 line at Revs bike park are there a better set of jumps on a race track in the UK?
5) You can’t get much better craic. Awesome setting, the midges are nearly gone, it’s a proper mountain and an awesome track. You might even make the Descent-World official recap video.
