Fort William WC | Track Walk and extra juice

Fort William WC | Track Walk and extra juice

Words: Tommy Wilkinson Images and Audio: © Tommy Wilkinson and Zach Faulkner. Here we go again. Not many people will remember 2002, and it’s harking back to the days when Kovarik donned a short sleeve Fox jersey and destroyed the field by 14 seconds, but after walking the track today, there is a feeling we might have the wildest Fort William track in years here. After copious amounts of rain in the Scottish Highlands and a BDS race where the […]

EWS Tweedlove – Practice photo story.

Our man Ian Linton is one busy man this week. He’s not only the Tweedlove official tog, but he’s also been up hill and down dale to bring us a fine set of images to kick start a EWS frenzy…..As many riders try to recover from last weekend, the thought of over 2000 meteres of climbing in what has been classic borders weather hasn’t deterred riders from hitting the trails hard.

It was clear from the very first meeting that Gus had what I’d call a different view of the world to most people – not right, nor wrong, just different. Gus is a farmer.

Fabio Wibmer on Rasoulution books.

Munich, April 28th 2015 – The born and raised bike enthusiast, Fabio Wibmer from east Austria is quickly building a reputation for his big lines and huge tricks. The Munich based sports agency rasoulution, noticed the nineteen year old’s talent to anything with two wheels.

That task they achieved with ease. With a track […]
