Man Down!! Dan Atherton

“On Tuesday night of this week Dan was out riding dirt jumps at his local trails in Llanfyllin, when he crashed and landed awkwardly on his head. Dan was taken to Shrewsbury hospital in a ambulance where they X-rayed his upper spine. The results confirmed a fracture to his C2 vertebrae with a further CT […]

Ride, shower, eat, sleep……..

Well…I think everyone’s either been to, planning to go, or perhaps right now actually reading this from a mountain bike holiday destination, and by that, I mean a hired chalet in France, Villa in Spain, hotel in Canada or even a 5 day rather crowded and smelly static caravan in Glen Nevis. Point being that for the most […]

SKINS C400 Men’s Compression Bib Shorts

Mid ‘first’ week of the 2010 Tour de France and it’s been a feast of ripped Lycra as the top roadies in the world, slide backwards into the hedge, topped with road rash a plenty. That’s one of the reasons that Lycra was a complete “Marmite” thing with downhiller’s. We simply didn’t trust it to […]

Chatel Mountain Style 2010

The Chatel Mountain Style in its fourth year brought some big changes to the course, and I do mean big! When I first saw the 12 metre drop at the start I couldn’t quite believe that they were seriously going to be going off it. The drop in 2009 was massive, but they’ve built this […]

NPS 4X Round 3 – Redhill Extreme, Gloucestershire

Round 3 of the NPS 4X headed over to the rolling Gloucestershire countryside where, overlooking the Severn Estuary, a richly coloured dirt track winds its way down the grassy hillside at Redhill Extreme. With predictions of the mercury hitting 30° , the racing was guaranteed to be hot no matter what happened on track and […]

Thomas Braithwaite wins iXS European Downhill Cup

After 2008, the iXS European Downhill Cup returned to Ilmenau for another race. After having been absent from the downhill racing calendar last year, the university town returned to host the German stop of the series. Meanwhile in its 14th edition, the race fittingly dubbed the „Absolute Abfahrt“ was another highlight in the event’s history. […]

2010 Halo BDS Rd 3 Llangollen

Llangollen (p: Clan-Gothlen) is a small town in the North East of Wales, steeped in history; it sits on the busy A5 arterial route that links the port of Holyhead and then Ireland, to the rest of mainland Britain. The BDS first visited this venue in 2009, then known as the NPS, the steep course […]
