A 24 hour support perspective

I met Jason Hynd in 2006 when I started to take my cycling more seriously, logging more miles and competing. The jump in training had resulted in a knee injury so I hunted out a physiotherapist and was lucky to find Jason. We instantly hit it off as I found out that he also had a passion for mountain bike riding and racing. He had competed to a high level in his late 20s/early 30s gaining a silver medal at the Masters Scottish Mountain Bike Championships. Soon after that he had stopped…

Winter at Whinlatter

I know quite a few people on this site have signed up to the Whinlatter Challenge for 2012 (me included), hopefully building on the big MTBG turnout in 2011. On Sunday 8th January 2012 me, Jason and Rich W decided to avoid the mud bath that is Guisborough woods and headed over to the lakes for a blast around the Altura Trail at Whinlatter. Not that I needed inspiration to ride at Whinlatter but a portion of the Collective DVD with my porridge went down a treat.

Scottish Trail Heaven

After a busy July of MTB races I found myself with some free weekends before my next race at the end of August. What better way to spend part of it than a road trip to South West Scotland to ride some mountain bike trails. Nick and myself stayed near Castle Douglas and had 5 trail centres to choose from, all within 40 minutes drive. Day one  was to be Kirroughtree, I had pumped Nick up saying how good it was in the weeks preceding our trip. It started well with the super flowy trails not… Continue

What's it all about?

At the weekend I opted to ride the Dalby On One Hundred MTB Marathon instead of the well established CRC Selkirk Marathon. The On One is an event that’s in its first year and hopefully one that will continue. After signing on I rammed my jersey pockets with as much food, fluid and spares as they could take not wanting to leave myself short. If you blow with 40km to go on open exposed moorland, that’s going to be a very hard, lonely journey back in a world of hurt. We set off at a fairly…

Any time you fancy a blast out on a Wednesday night your more than welcome Fella, baggies is a minimum requirement though. Wining the occasional event isn't enough!

Marks off to get married this Wednesday, he's away for a week then his life sentence starts! Joking of course. I'm sure he will be very happy. You probably didn't hear but Tim had a bit of a spill in the Alps, nothing that 15 stitches in his ankle didn't fix. Darren has a picture a couple of hundredths of a second before.....the Dude is mental and dam near vertical off the top of what looks like an 8' drop. Someone should remind that man of his age. Catch you later, Fella.

Now then Mike. Well done on your latest win by the way. You said you wouldn't be happy with anything less than top weren't kidding! (I'm assuming you haven't won anything else in the past month of course?) You might want to take a look at the pics of the stag weekend at G'tress and the little movie clip? Enjoy!
