Specialized 2011 Long Travel Launch

Is there a better place to unveil your new product line than at the mecca of mountain biking, Whistler Canada? Is there a better time to do it than during Crankworx, probably the biggest mountain bike festival in the world? The answer to both these questions is undoubtedly “No” and I was lucky enough to […]

5 Mins with Darren Berrecloth

Darren should need no introduction but for anyone who does’t know he is a free-ride pioneer, bike handler extraordinaire and is one of the riders who made doing tricks on a mountain bike look better than good. DW: Darren, how is Crankworx going for you this year so far? DB: It?s been pretty good, the […]

Atherton Project – Episode 7

Episode 7 starts back at the Athertons’ home in Wales. The family have their own trails behind the house which they train on whenever they’re back home, and Dan and Gee hit the jumps. Testing out a new line, suddenly, Dan disappears behind a jump for a lot longer than seems normal, and Gee and […]

Safe As Part 1- Asgard Secure Bike Storage

Sadly one of the most discussed topics on ours, and many other bike forums is that of bike theft. Unsurprisingly theft is worst in city centre areas, just where space is at a premium; flat living with no garage access hardly makes secure storage easy. So we are on a mission to help you keep […]

Val Di Sole – Finals

What a downhill final here in Val Di Sole today, hot weather and a surprise in the men’s final. The women kicked off the day with Emmeline Ragot taking the win, 2 weeks in a row. Marc Beaumont threw the cat amongst the pigeons and helped out Greg Minnaar who scored a second behind Marc. […]

Val Di Sole – Saturday [4X]

Saturday at Val Di Sole brought us a little practice session for the downhill boys and the 4X finals. With a gap of around 5 hours, a few Brits headed downstream in the river which runs through the valley to cool off. Meanwhile the cross country guys and gals diced it out on their tech […]

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 […]
