UCI World Cup Round 3 Fort William Race Report

BDS Round 3 Ae Forest Race Report

Jamie and I headed down to Ae Forest on the Friday afternoon and set up camp after a wee off road excursion in the landy. The track was looking really nice and dry and featured a bit of everything mtb – off camber corners, jumps, a technical wood section and of course the famous Ae […]

Race Report – Seb at the XC Garmin Bike Cup (Switzerland)
