Behind the scenes: Wrecking Crew

| Mountain Biking Uk | 22/02/2013 12:56pm

What goes on when we hit a new Wrecking Crew location?

Last week Weavs and I left the office at silly-o’clock in the morning to get up to Revolution Bikepark in Llangynog, North Wales.

Manon Carpenter jumped in the van on the way, we met up with Russ Burton – the man with the camera, and blasted the last bit of the way to the park.┬áSandy Plenty (behind The Trailhead bike shop in Shrewsbury) and Neil Halcrow (Osprey and Whyte Bikes demo guy) were already kitted up by the time we’d battled through the morning traffic, so after a quick change, we were heading straight up the mountain!

I’ve been up to Revolution a couple of times before, and it’s long been on the list of places we’ve wanted to get into the mag, and we picked a day with some pretty amazing weather, considering the last couple of months, to do it! It’s one of the few places in the UK where I feel like I’d need to be riding a DH bike to get the best out of it, with steep, natural, rooty and rocky trails. Luckily thanks to the massive hill, the guys from the bike park were on hand to show us around and give us uplifts for the day!

You can check out the bike park’s website and book onto the uplift here.

Neil spent the day snapping away on his phone, riskily carried in his pocket, while Russ skulked through the woodland stopping us for shots every run or so. You’ll have to wait for MBUK 289 to hit the shops (on 5 April) before you can read the full feature, but in the mean time, here are the fruits of Neil’s iPhonetography….

It’s all hard work – even the chin-wagging!

Not a bad view from the car park!
