Where did we leave off? Oh yeah, right… Well, yesterday was tough – proper tough. We managed to nab a load of 2011 Giant’s and threw them in the back of our Chevy Suburban (the burb!) before heading to Bootleg Canyon. Sadly though, by the time that we’d collected the bikes etc it was approaching 12 noon.
I’d love to say good morning or evening to you all but to be honest, I’ve know idea what time it is!
All I do know is that I crawled out of bed at 03:55 GMT this morning and it’s now just gone 20:00 in our hotel/motel/Holiday Inn in Boulder City.
The Stereophonics once sang;
“Cos I’m leaving (oooh) L-A-S Vegas two times…”
Eurobike is enormous! It actually needs to be seen to be believed. It is one of the best places to see all of the latest innovations in mountain biking and get a good idea of where our beloved sport is heading.
What a Worlds… Was it me or did it have pretty much everything?! As viewers all over the world huddled around lap-tops last night, Mont-Sainte Anne was the backdrop for one of the most unpredicatble World Champs in years.
- The World Champs are a weird affair and as the doom-mongers in Canada continue to scour the skies for the apparently iminent rain the riders got on with the first ‘timed training’ session.
It’s that time of year again – World Champs weekend is approaching and it’s anyone’s guess who’s going to walk away with the stripes.
Once all the usual bickering and squabbling subsided Ric’s Fox hat was passed around with the top ten World Cup riders (plus two ‘wild cards’) safely ensconced within.
The 2010 UCI World Cup – if I had to describe it in one word it would have to be ‘wow’! After a bullish start to the season by Greg Minnaar, Gee Atherton clawed his way back after a disappointing 2009 to take his maiden World Cup overall crown.
Although it’s still warm out, chillier mornings and evenings are becoming noticeable, and the local MBUK trails are getting greasy…
In the first of our new video blogs, Ric talks you through the remains of his Giant Glory downhill bike after an action/crash-packed trip to Malaga with Switchbacks DH. He’s also got some interesting stuff going on with his suspension at the minute so take a gander.
