Eurobike Demo Day- Ratzenried, Allgau, German

Ham and Cheese and Electric bikes! I’ve only been in Germany for one day, and already I find myself full to the brim with Ham ,Cheese and Electric Bikes! Although Eurobike proper only starts tomorrow I already know that 2011 is going to be the year of the Electric Bike. Man, they’re everywhere! Some look like full-on DH sleds with a motor- that’ll solve the uplift problems in the UK! Nicolai were showing a neat one that was DH orientated; […]

Chronology – Gary and Sven’s “Wee Book”

It was supposed to be here back around the time that the World Cup circus rolled into Fort William but one thing lead to another and drib and drabs came though and were quickly snapped up. Right now we know where there’s a few boxes of them…right now there’s a limited and mean limited number of “Chronology” books available at Bikelove, Glasgow. Priced at £24.99 (+£5 P&P), get one by giving Carl a ring on 0141 945 0999 and he’ll […]

DW Drops in: Continental Tyres UK

If you’ve been living in a box over the past few years you most certainly will not have noticed the momentum that Continental’s rubber hoops have been having of late. It has to be said that when we think of downhill tryes, Continental didn’t up until recently figure, we’ve all been Maxxis’d and Michy’d out over the past few years but things could be changing…I wanted to find out more. The German Tyre manufacture has grabbed mountain bike tyre design […]

2011 Giant DH00 and DH01 models: Talk from the Village

Giant secured a primo spot to show off their new bikes and it was impossible not to get sucked in and have a look at their 2011 DH0x models. There is no doubt that the bikes are good looking, the co-ordination of frame and components is extremely well thought out. Coordinating bash guards, hydraulic lines and shifter cables are nice touch’s which show an attention to detail, which can sometimes be lacking on other bikes. Even the Elixr brake adjusters […]

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 scene here is sweet, there was some rain earlier in the week so the trails are super good right now. Everybody has been having fun […]

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. With Gee Atherton following in third it’s left the overall points a little tighter, 7 points with Gee at 1007 and Greg at 1000, as […]

The Atherton Project – Mountain Biking Reality Series – Episode 5

Episode 5 of The Atherton Project kicks off in Vernon, New Jersey for the US Open. It’s a constantly-changing, notoriously challenging track, and pushes the riders to their very limits. Off-track, Gee shares his slightly dubious American cable TV picks. Then it’s on to Fort William in Scotland for Round 3 of the UCI World Cup. . The pressure mounts – it’s a huge event for the Athertons on a physically demanding and tiring course, with masses of family and […]

World Cup Fever – Leogang

Jacob Gibbins is our man in Austria this weekend, with the sole mission to keep us all enlightened with his wizardry behind the lens. Here’s his collection from Thursday at Leogang…a little 4X [practice and some nice views! [nggallery id=33]

Fort Bill WC – The Milway Files

Saturday dawned warm and sunny and has just got hotter and hotter. Dry, dusty and a real spectator friendly place to be at the moment. Qualification day today and big news was the state of Sam Hill. After the crash in which he mangled half his bike (see yesterdays repo for the mashed back wheel) he had done himself some serious damage. The word it most of us wouldn’t have got up from that one… Quali saw him roll out […]
