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 […]

Oceania DH champs

Oceania DH champs

Words and images: James Allan We’re just getting news in from the other side of the globe – no not the EWS ( more on that when we get it ) that Bryn Dikerson has taken out the Oceania DH champs, beating out George Brannigan ( Who crashed twice ) . Alan Columb, a local pinner who made strides on the WC circuit last year took out the female win. The race, held in Queenstown’s now world famous bike park, […]

Vertigo Summer Series Round 4 – Fancy Dress Finals

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

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 […]

Scottish Enduro Series – Rd 1, Dunkeld.

Above: James Shirley takes THAT chute on Stage 2. @tommyawilkinson Words and photos: Ian Linton | @linton_photo Additional Photography: Tommy Wilkinson | @tommyawilkinson The Scottish Enduro Series kicked off their 2016 season with a bang at Dunkeld – certainly no easing the riders into racing mode here! I have to admit right now that I’ve only ever been to this venue to cover the Downhill races and never even seen the other trails before this weekend. My eyes have been […]

Northern Downhill goes north of the Border

Northern Downhill goes north of the Border

Just 2 months into  2016 and already Northern Downhill have put on 3 great races, all of a different style. January saw the Funduro aimed at race novices (it still attracted elite riders), then came the awesome 3 stage Hamsterley Enduro on valentines day no less, and finally 2 weeks later a time trial (TT) race in the forest of Ae in Scotland on 28th February. Robert Proudlock trying to keep it low near the end (JWDTphotography) I’ve never been […]

Northern Downhill Hamsterley Enduro

Northern Downhill Hamsterley Enduro

Words and photos: Jerry Tatton / JWDT photography. February is always an unpredictable time of year as far as the weather goes up here in the North East, and for the Northern Downhill Hamsterley enduro, that was no exception. Ice, snow and freezing cold winds did not keep away 200 riders keen to compete at one of the best trail centres for racing in our area. It must have been 200 mountain bikers with a love of riding that brought […]
