Shine Bright (like a diamond?!)

Abigale Lawton’s first full Enduro season is off to a flying start

I knew 2016 was going to be a big year for me on the bike.  My first full season racing (after only starting last year) and 13 races booked. Missing out on the European rounds of the EWS through the lottery, I decided it wasn’t necessary to do as much training as I had planned. […]

Underdog? There’s life in this old dog yet!

“Underdog? what underdog?  The term, supposedly, comes from days of yore when lumberjacks and other wood workers would get the new, young and inexperienced guy to stand under the log they were sawing in half lengthways. He would take the bottom part of the saw whilst the experienced and older journeyman stood atop the log with his […]

Jenny Nuttall gives us her account of Scotland at its best (and worst)!

I finally feel like I have been mountain biking.  I haven’t been racing, but hiking in the mountains with my bike.  Munros are mountains in Scotland over 3000 feet high and over the August bank holiday, had our sights on six.  We slept on one, reached the summit of four, were thwarted from completing our […]
