Ardmoors Enduro

Ardmoors Enduro

Armoors delivered on a challenging enduro race. Photo – Adam Sherratt Now the dust, or should I say mud, has settled we should have a look back at last weekend. You’ve probably already heard about the rumblings coming out from the North York Moors last weekend. This was a race that will probably go down as the race of legends. Guy was first down stage 4, an absolute belter of a stage, fresh cut with switchbacks, rock gardens and steep […]

PMBA round 4 Gnar Bikepark

PMBA round 4 Gnar Bikepark

James Swinden making easy work of the gap jump. James, riding for Cotic took the win and overall fastest time of the day The summer break has been and gone and what better way than to get back into the action at Gnar bike park. Round four of the PMBA enduro series is a unique series race to say the least. With 8 stages all ridden twice this would sound to the uninitiated like a huge race circuit. But with […]

Ardrock Mountain Bike Festival 2017

Ardrock Mountain Bike Festival 2017

Guy and Freya have become a bit legendary of late. They also beat a hell of a lot of other riders! You have to ask yourself back in 2013 when 305 riders completed Ardrock, did the Ard team envisage where the event would be now. Back in 2013, the field next to and immediately surrounding the Dales Bike shop had quite a gathering of tents and vans. Back then, this was a pretty huge first enduro they put on. I […]

PMBA Round 3 – Kirroughtree

PMBA Round 3 – Kirroughtree

Sunday saw another top PMBA enduro race at Kirroughtree. Kev himself dropping into a fresh cut section with the backdrop of Scotland Round 3 of the series at Kirroughtree is the furtherest north the series goes, a forest so far north they cross the borders into Scotland’s Dumfies and Galloway. Once again a Sunday race turned more into a weekend of bikes, camping, beers and a great atmosphere. With many riders arriving on the Saturday to have a look at […]

The Hamsterley Beast

The Hamsterley Beast

480+ riders primed and ready to take on the Beast The Hamsterley Beast has been and gone for another year, and its roar was even louder this year. Many events start off as an idea around a pub table amongst mates after a ride, and this event was no exception. “Why don’t we put on an event, why don’t we raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance (GNAAS)? Let’s give something back” And so it began. This rider was […]

Northern Downhill returns to Chopwell Woods

Northern Downhill returns to Chopwell Woods

Sam Johnson racing for his first time, Northern Downhill’s funduros are certainly a great place to start out One thing Northern Downhill has a great ability to do is entice fresh blood into the racing scene. This weekend was no exception. Having spoken to a couple of race newbies at the end of the race, they were buzzing and already planning their next. Kristina racing for the first time put in the second fastest time of the day in the […]

Northern Downhill Hamsterley TT

Northern Downhill Hamsterley TT

Alex Scarre showing some sublime skills. Last time I snapped this lad he was doing a superman and dressed up in fancy dress for christmas Sunday saw the return of the Northern downhill crew at Hamsterley forest for their biannual TT race. This race whips up a bit of a storm to locals as it’s a well known section of forest trail. To the strava slaves it’s known as total triple tranny (who thinks up these names). This is one […]
