Press release – Friday 8th October 2010 Break-in at Hotlines London showing during the early hours of Friday 8th October. Thieves broke in to the Dray Walk Gallery just off Brick Lane at approximately 3:30AM and stole 6 high end and very rare bikes as well as a Lynskey Titanium frame from the Hotlines London show.    All of the bikes that were stolen are very rare and as such should be easily recognised.  Anyone providing information leading to the retrieval […]

Episode 11 of The Atherton Project

Episode 11 of The Atherton Project kicks off with an encouraging message from the injured Dan. Meanwhile, Rachel and Gee are in Windham, USA for the the final World Cup of the season and Rachel is nervous about her return to downhill following a shoulder injury. Gee isn’t in the best of health either with a chest infection as he prepares for the biggest race of the year so far – a race that could see him crowned UCI World […]

Northern Downhill Round 5 Kidland Forest

Northern Downhill Round 5 Kidland Forest 18th-19th September It has to be said that the wet opening round back in April ripped the track to bits, but was the track wrecked? By how enjoyable the track rode this weekend I think not. Basically the last of the slippy topsoil has cleared down to more predictably grippy gravels and rock. The track started just above the fire road and it was on the pedals to drop down into the daylight, cross […]

2010 World Masters Championships

Battle of the old balls. The 2010 World Masters Championships were staged this year in Balneario Camboriou Brazil, 1000km south of Rio on the south east coast of Brazil. Brazil is an experience to explore in itself, unique, slightly feral with an unquestionable radiating Latino vibe and warmth – the people there are some of the most welcoming friendly people you could want to meet and the race venue was nothing short of an extended vein – full of colour […]

Fort William SDA Rd5 2010

Fort William played host to the last round of the 2010 SDA series in what can only be described as typical September Scottish weather. Wind and heavy showers plagued Saturdays practice but the sun did make a few appearances, so I was told, as I didn’t get there till the Sunday. After putting in a long day at a wedding on Saturday in the beautiful sun down Innerleithen way, arriving up at the Anoch in overcast cold conditions wasn’t what […]

NPS 4x Finals – Chicksands

Chicksands, Bedfordshire concluded this year’s 4x national points series with sunny skies and hero dirt to try and separate those one day wonders (national champions) from the season long, consistency seekers. The dig pixies at Rowney Warren had been busy making track alterations – from a re-shaped lip here and a new berm there, to more significant changes such as a loose, bermed s-bend linked by a log section halfway down the track that tested nerve and rewarded the late […]

Michal Prokop: TWELVE August

Twenty-five years behind the handlebars and pedals, that’s a great deal of experience. Someone writes memories, another dusting off cups in shelves. Michal celebrates this occasion his own way, he is opening a clinic for intensive treatment for all kinds of ailments, and pumps his experience directly into veins, muscles, nerves and the brain. Women and men, children and old men, beginners and more experienced ones. Prokop Clinix. No limits, no obligations. How such treatment looks like, is recorded by […]

Chronology – Gary and Sven’s “Wee Book”

It was supposed to be here back around the time that the World Cup circus rolled into Fort William but one thing lead to another and drib and drabs came though and were quickly snapped up. Right now we know where there’s a few boxes of them…right now there’s a limited and mean limited number of “Chronology” books available at Bikelove, Glasgow. Priced at £24.99 (+£5 P&P), get one by giving Carl a ring on 0141 945 0999 and he’ll […]

WC Finals: Windham

Windham, USA hosts the final of the 2010 World Cup Series, with 2 riders in the chase for the overall title. What a race between Gee and Greg, in the end it was Gee who took the win from Greg by 0.37 of a second…so close. However, World Champion Steve Peat wore his rainbow strips for the last time (maybe?) in 2010, as he qualified fastest and was ahead during his final run when a crash near the finish, secured […]

NDH Rd 4 Kidlandlee Alwinton

Big thanks to Carl for putting on an event which many organisers would have cancelled due to the low entries. The riders that had entered were either hardcore regulars that knew what they were letting themselves in for, or other new riders who had heard word of mouth of the potential of the track and were up for the challenge. This time round, the track line changes seemed to make all of the difference instead of being hard work it […]
