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 […]

Alpine Winter Series Rd1 – XC Multi Stage Enduro

The first round of the Alpine Winter Series took place over the weekend with a new format for 2012 – a XC Multi-Stage Enduro. The event, organised by Innerleithen MTB Racing, was completely sold out as riders from across the globe descended on Innerleithen for this exciting new style of mountain bike racing. Riders followed a course of around 30km in total, with three special timed stages. The cumulative time for the predominantly downhill stages would determine the winner. Conditions […]

The “Scottish Scene” Part 4

Episode 4 of Scottish Scene takes us to the third round of the SDA series held at Dunkeld. Despite a fairly low turn out the racing is as still as close as ever and the weather actually stayed dry over both race runs, a very rare occasion for a race in Scotland! But first we take a trip to Innerleithen to spend an afternoon with Chris Reynolds at his favourite trails. Chris rode for the MTB-Essentials team in 2011 however […]

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 […]
