What a Thursday…

| Blog, Mountain Biking Uk | 01/06/2011 08:00am

With the count down to Fort Bill nearing the bit when ticker-tape explodes from the ceiling and we all start dancing around holding hands – MBUK Towers is a busy place to be.

So busy infact that, I’m only getting a chance to tell you about a pretty cool day out Weavs and I had last Thursday at Cwmcarn.

It was a classic case of two birds, one stone – dead! Sort of.

Rob’s mission was to visit Mojo Suspension and check out the 2012 Fox Racing suspension whilst my objective was to loiter with intent with the Lapierre World Cup team.

We got to Mojo early doors and head honcho Chris had the coffees on straight away. If you’ve not been before, Mojo is a seriously cool place to visit. Signed memorablia from some of two-wheeled sports greatest hangs everywhere, monster Fox ATV shocks hang on the walls and there’s row upon row of just about every part of every Fox suspension unit ever invented.

As Chris talked us through the new stuff the Mojo lads got busy bolting some of the slippery Kashima-clad units to our bikes – there are definitely worse ways to fill a morning! More on the new stuff winging its way online and into the mag very soon…

Next up was more coffee and a meet with snapper Russ and the Lapierre boys – Sam Blenkinsop, Cam Cole and Scottish ripper, Sam Flockhart. The banter was good and despite the Welsh weather’s best efforts we got a decent bit of riding in and some pics shot. Having given up on attempting to hang on to the back of the Lapierre boys, Russ and I even found a new trail on the way back to the car park too.

Anyway, need to get back to the Fort Bill-related grindstone now. In the mean time here are some cheeky snaps…
