Lourdes WC Finals | Holy Hell on High Water.

Lourdes WC Finals | Holy Hell on High Water.

Words: Tommy Wilkinson Photos: © Tommy wilkinson and Liam moss.   A lot can happen in 365 days.  Indeed, a lot can happen in seven days – and if you believe in the almighty, worlds can be created and one would presume broken in this cycle we live our lives by. This race was always going to be insane. There was no way a race could come to Lourdes and not be – we’ve covered those bases already but it’s more […]

Lourdes World Cup | Qualifying Report

Words: Tommy Wilkinson Photos: © Tommy wilkinson and Liam moss.   It’s on! So who’s been making statements on the slopes of the midi-pyrenees this afternoon?In this town where Sunday will certainly not be a day of rest, we’ve seen riders congregating in areas where some may indeed want to try and reach out to the almighty.

Anyway, […]

And so life goes – standstill and go backwards or evolve and push forwards.  For the past 5 years the BDS has been on a upward curve and as the  April mist cleared from the Dumfries sky to reveal a shade of blue yet to be seen this year, it would be a cynical sort who could find fault.
