The “Scottish Scene” Part 3

Episode 3 is a slightly different approach to your average bike video to take a look into a day in the life of Oban’s original ganster/part time comedian – Ben Cathro. After spending a morning “preparing” for the day ahead, we see Ben riding his local trails in Oban followed by a catch up to find out why he won’t be competing in the world cup series for 2012. Ben had a great season last year, his most impressive result […]

The “Scottish Scene” Part 2

Episode 2 of Scottish Scene features the carnage of the 2011 Scottish Championships held at Killin. We then take a trip across to Innerleithen to check out the skills of Joe Connell riding his local trails. Joe has had a great season this year riding for Sunn/Montgenevre (taking the junior BDS overall, SDA overall and becoming junior Scottish Champion to name a few of his achievements…) and it was awesome to spend some time filming him for Scottish Scene. Check […]

Red Bull Downforce – Swansea Wales

ROWAN SORRELL CONQUERS RED BULL DOWNFORCE! On 4th December, 32 of the UK’s top downhill mountain bike riders descended into Swansea city centre for Red Bull Downforce 2011. Overlooking Swansea Bay, riders were challenged with steps, terraces, narrow archways, grass verges and some of the steepest cobbled streets in the UK. Cheers from the crowds greeted the riders as they crossed the finish line. Each rider had two heats in the qualifying round. The eight riders with the fastest time […]

DW Christmas Gift Ideas- Endura MT500 Gloves

DW Christmas Gift Ideas- Endura MT500 Gloves

The MT500 range is the Endura’s flagship range and is aimed at hardcore trail & freeride riding. The gloves have all the features you would expect from such a model, some light protection across the back of the hand, a hardwearing suedette palm, silicon grip on the fingers for braking and more. I have used them for the last 6 months and have found the fit to be good and so far so durable. The material itself is fairly heavy […]

R.I.P. The Hub

Sadly on the 27th November 2011 the legendary Hub Cafe at Glentress shut it’s doors for the last time. The bike shop and hire center closed it’s doors a few weeks before hand which really brought it home to me that this was actually happening – sad times indeed, seems only yesterday when all the tendering debacle hit the headlines.  After 10 years of trading Emma and Tracy put Glentress on the map with their friendly down to earth no […]

Full-Beam Lights Day Night Enduro

November 19th 2011 here at Innerleithen a classic enduro race was born, 2 stages raced in the afternoon’s unseasonably fantastic weather then fit the lights onto the bike and repeat all over again in the dark. For those not familiar with the enduro race format it’s somewhere between XC and downhill racing but leaning more to downhill. The idea is to cycle your XC or all mountain bike up to a designated starting point and be timed from there to […]

Innerleithen MTB Mini DH Series Rd3

Over 100 young racers were entered into the last of the mini downhill series run by Innerleithen MTB and supported by I-Cycles, Grease Monkey Cycles and Tweeddale Sports Council.  The track this weekend started with a bit the Gold run from the middle road then a sharp 180 degree turn on the pushup path, quick peddle along there into some twisty stuff down into a bit of the Cresta then another 180 turn down to a hard right into the […]
