Val Di Sole – Friday [Qualifying]

At last the sun came out and dried the downhill riders out. After yesterdays downpour the forecasters promised good weather and they delivered. The course was still a little damp in places but by mid morning the dust was back and the riders seemed happy with the conditions. Roots are polished and the thread like […]

Val Di Sole – Thursday

With a dry start practice got under way at the penultimate round of the 2010 World Cup series at Val Di Sole, Italy. Rain soon drifted in later and it stayed for quite a while, in fact it just stopped after practice finished for the day. The dry conditions for the first few hours showed […]

UCi World Cup Champery Finals

After the slop and slog of qualifying, race day could only be better. With no real rain to speak of, the track started to dry out – getting gloopier, stickier and slower. A lot of riders were coming off line and coming off their bikes- for example Justin Leov and Andrew Neethling were both nursing […]

Champery World Cup Day 2

Flat and Wet. Two words to sum up today in Champery. Deep in the Alps, or should that be steep in the Alps, Champery’s reputation preceded itself as riders arrived. The track was technically a brute, and this year it is just as tough. Practice on Thursday was dusty and flowing, the steep, rooty shoots […]

The Atherton Project Episode 6

Episode 6 of The Atherton Project begins with the family fitting in some much-needed relaxation back home in Wales. For Gee, this involves sitting in a wheelbarrow and being towed around at lightning speed by a quad bike, offroad. Of course. Then it’s on to Leogang in Austria for Round Four of the World Cup, […]

Scottish Champs Dunkeld

It was the original seat of the chief bishop of the mysterious kingdom of the Picts. In 849AD Dunkeld became the religious centre of Scotland when St Columba’s relics were moved here from Iona for safe keeping from increasing Viking raids. However, little of what you see today in Dunkeld is earlier than 1689. The […]

Northern Downhill Rd 3 Kidlandlee Alwinton

The track headed from the fire road straight into the trees with some dusty turns, before heading out into the open, with fine views across the Cheviots. Unfortunately the track headed straight down and there was no chance to enjoy the view, due to the flat out speed heading straight down the gradient onto a […]
