The Archive – A wee gift for you all?

The Archive – A wee gift for you all?

It was a while ago we had a big crash on this very site…we lost a lot, I mean almost it all. I was devastated, while others laughed…literally.

Even though I worked 24/7 and threw £1000’s […]

North East Champs – Kielder

North East Champs – Kielder

NDH added Kielder to their list of venues throughout the north east where they had been building new technical tracks for the past 5 years. Kielder was always their target because Deadwater fell is a massive hill more than capabable of holding a 5 minute plus course. Work on this started earlier this year by a dedicated small crew with a few other helpers. Having worked on this hill myself I was more than a little excited about the potential. […]
