Endura Whyte Vallelujah Race.

Just 2 years ago this view wasn’t possible as you were deep in the Cadmuir forest, tree felling has opened up a nice view but offers no shelter to the weather. @linton_photo Words and Photography: Ian Linton | Credit: @linton_photo | Additional Photography JWDTphotography It seemed such a shame that the nice dry weather the valley had been bathed in for the last fortnight hadn’t dragged itself over the Easter weekend. I think seeing as the Met Office now name […]

Official Unofficial Whip-Off World Champs

Official Unofficial Whip-Off World Champs

The jumps are called, “Dream Track”. The piles of dirt, spaced way, way apart are a landmark of the mountain bike scene in Queenstown, New Zealand, and have quickly become the benchmark for big, fun jumps. The first two and last two gaps are the most noteworthy, but this story only involves the former. It is here at the top of the Wynyard Jump Park where the second-annual gathering of huckers has taken place, with the set goal in mind […]

Vertigo Summer Series Round 4 – Fancy Dress Finals

All too soon it seems like winter is starting to muscle summer out of the way with the colder, darker mornings. It just seemed like yesterday the first round of the Vertigo Summer Series took place and we had all the daylight to play with in the world. The finals have now become a customary fancy dress affair. Typically to make it easy (or not) you only have to dress up your helmet. As usual the Queenstown locals embraced the […]

Juvenile Winner James Elliot is stylish, fast and knows that once you pass the laser, its game time! @tommyawilkinson Words and Photography: Ian Linton | Credit: @linton_photo & Tommy Wilkinson | Credit: @tommyawilkinson If surprises can be classed as good, bad, or unexpected then this weekend certainly delivered on two of those three fronts. Only a month ago this race was looking like it might be in jeopardy – yet 285 riders, blazing sunshine and a fantastic track certainly put […]

Northern Downhill Enduro returns to Kielder

Organiser and event boss Carl Davison checking the stage and setting up timings before race (JWDTphotography) Sunday saw the NDH enduro riders take on a pretty varied course at the behemoth that is Kielder Forest in Northumberland . Another 3- stage race on Kielder’s infamous Deadwater hill. At a smidge under 1900 feet (571m) this proved to be a brutal test for riders; 2 of the stages starting at the top of the summit and the final stage an easy […]
