Fetish Bikes UK Gravity Enduro Rd1 Innerleithen

Fetish Bikes UK Gravity Enduro Rd1 Innerleithen

A dusty Innerleithen hosted the first round of the British Enduro Race series last weekend in perfect sunny summer like weather. This side of the sport is now growing in popularity as it’s got a great mix of the downhill side of the sport but not quite as extreme, but you also have to be pretty damn fit to cycle back up the hill to the start of each stage in a set time (don’t think the hot sunny weather […]

Ben Cathro Launches Sick Skills Guiding and Coaching

2011 was a decent year for me, I gained a couple of top 20’s at the world cups and scored a top 10 at La Bresse which was next level. The summer of cruising around the world with the MTBcut/Orange crew was over and I was left with some amazing memories and an empty bank account. It’s the classic story of the privateer racer. Work to earn some money during the winter while trying to train at a decent level […]

First look at the new Ancillotti FRY

When I saw that Steve had built up a new Ancillotti FRY for use in the up and coming Fetish Enduro Series I just had to go down and have a look.  It’s been a while since I last slung a leg over a lovely piece of Italian engineering, it would’ve been Gary Forrest’s race bike back in the day’s of ProbikeSport.  I have to say the bike looks lovely, what you’d expect from a hand built frame from Italy.  […]

Aaron Gwin lead the way today for all three Trek World Racing riders who ended up on the podium at the South African national race held on the improved Pietermaritzburg course that will host next week’s World Cup opener.

Alpinebikes Winter Series Rd3

Innerleithen was the place to be at the weekend for the last of the Alpine-Bikes winter series, which was held in what can only be winter conditions. Saturday saw practice held in pretty good if not damp conditions to start with but the sun shone for most of the afternoon. Steve from I-Cycles taped a cracking course for this weekend’s final downhill race in the series. Starting from the hut at the top of Plora rig you headed straight on […]

Alpine Winter Series Rd2 Day/Night Enduro

The second round of the Alpine Winter Series took place on Saturday with an exciting race format not often seen in the UK. Following the huge success of Round 1 last month, Innerleithen MTB Racing brought us a Day/Night Enduro in Traquair Forest, Innerleithen. The format involved riders making their way around the forest with two special timed stages. The same stages were then ridden again once darkness had fallen – riders using lights on their handlebars and sometimes their […]

Fetish Bike DH Series Rd1 Innerleithen

The first Fetish Bike winter downhill race run by Mike Marsden’s Borderline Events took place at the weekend in Innerleithen.  Being a winter race the weather is always a risk, don’t know if that was the reason for the small entry of a 130 odd riders but anybody that decided not to race missed out on a great weekends racing.  Track was a straight forward old school Inners classic taped by Joe Connell, pretty much the Gold run but just […]

The “Scottish Scene” Part 5

Episode 5 is the final instalment of Scottish Scene featuring the 5th round of the SDA series held at Innerleithen. The rain and sloppy mud resembles a round of the winter series rather than a race in September, but thats Scottish racing for you! Before heading to Inners we first check out the skills of Scott Laughland and Chris Hutchens. With both of them studying full time in Edinburgh it was a struggle to arrange a date when we were […]
