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 […]

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 […]

NDH Kielder TT

NDH Kielder TT

Once again Northern downhill returned to Kielder to host another fun TT race. The weather was kind given this was early March; the most recent Hamsterley Enduro saw prolonged heavy snow and freezing conditions all day, but Kielder, despite it’s fairly exposed nature, proved to be milder on the racers than expected. Personally I love the drive to Kielder; long straight Roman-roads, great scenery and some pretty awesome blind summits along the way. The behemoth that is Kielder reservoir soon […]
