Scotland with Vanderham + Hunter

Scotland with Vanderham + Hunter

The week-long adventure started at Bonar Bridge and ended in Applecross. All in all, the crew rode approximately 250km and spent 10-13 gruelling hours per day in the saddle. Nothing could have prepared us for what the vast backcountry of Scotland would throw at us, but what’s an adventure without a few hurdles? “The northern highlands of Scotland have a heavy reputation. Beautiful, surely. But rugged, rocky, rainy, windy, muddy and midgey are the words most often chosen.” – Matt […]

Northern Downhill’s Kielder TT

Northern Downhill’s Kielder TT

A techy small trail in a vast forestry and moorland expanse For the second time this year northern downhill returned to Kielder forest. Kielder Forest is a behemoth of man made woodland in Northumberland, England with three quarters of its 250 miles covered by forest. It’s famous for many things – Colin Mcrae’s legendary drives through the famous “Pundershaw” stage, it’s enormous reservoir, where the old village lies beneath and having an incredible observatory. Recently, it’s been getting back on the […]

Non of this flat trail centre stuff, although I think there is a time and a place for it. The bike: Loving […]

Frisky Friday:  Jake Hood

Frisky Friday: Jake Hood

Words and images: Zach Faulkner We are in an epoch of riding where the strata of riders is no longer vertical with racer at the top, and joe rider at the bottom. Rather, it has become a swirling mix, with riders of multiple disciplines moving up and down the categories, between Huck Hero and Racer Boy, to Weekend Warrior or Strava Bandit. The clear-cut definition of “who does what and where” is an aged concept, and it’s not surprising considering […]

Life as a photo rookie: Zach’s first year on WC duty.

Life as a photo rookie: Zach’s first year on WC duty.

Vansanity Fort William, Scotland, and Leogang, Austria are about as far from each other as possible when it comes to European travel. This is compounded when the time between the events is just three days. Flying by the seat of my pants, as one does as a rookie world cup photographer, I was told to get in a van with someone I’d only met once for all of five seconds, and then drive across the UK to pick up The […]

Vertigo Bikes Summer Series Round 2

Vertigo Bikes Summer Series Round 2

Words: ” Goose ” Images : Callum Wood. Just like that the insanity that is Queenstown over the Christmas and New Year period has passed by once again like the proverbial ship in the night, albeit a ship that is covered in vomit and is vastly overcrowded to the point of sinking.
