Leogang Day 1: Racers prepare for a mudfest.

\ Reporting live from wet and boggy Bike Park Leogang in Austria, the fourth round of the World Cup is officially underway! The mountains are currently obscured by thick clouds, which have come trundling down the valley like floating glaciers all day. With modest rainfall over the past two days, everything is looking especially lush and green, but the ground is soggy as can be, turning most of the track into a mild bog. The forested parts of the track […]

Fort William Day 3: Qualifying

Eddie Masters has come a long way from his days of fake enduro videos. 2nd in qualifying, and fastest first split… We’ve become accustomed to a small group of elite within the elite taking victories on the world stage. And tomorrow we may see a return to that format, but today we can revel in the beauty of pure sport.

Fort William Day 3: Tech from the pits

Whilst riders were qualifying , we took a tour around the Fort William pits to see what interesting bits of bike bling were on show. … First up was the lonely looking number 3 plate , on the stand in the Specialized pits.
