All about racing bikes – the faster and more sideways the better!

Winter mountain biking at it’s best!

Winter mountain biking at it’s best! January is all about base miles and i’ve been getting out with my local road club quite a lot, it’s always good to smash some miles with the chaingang. Road riding is all well and good but it’s no replacement for mud, which is why I entered the Gillingham…

December roundup: Mince pies and base miles

Hi i’m Ryan and i’m really happy to say i’ll be racing for BTR throughout my first proper season of 12hr single speed endurance events. I’ve done some racing in the past but riding long distances has been my thing for a few years now, including the South Downs Way, riding up mountains and riding through the…

PORC Downhill Series 2013, Rd 3

The first two rounds of this series have been pretty damn good, so the excitement levels coming into this race were pretty high. There was much speculation about the weather, but the farmers weather app said there would be sun so some hope was still there for a top weekend. I had to finish welding…

English Champs – Moelfre Hall

It’s been a fair old while since Ive been to Moelfre, last time would’ve been back in 2005 when I was still riding for Muddyfox! I was pretty excited to go back and send the Belter down the track. Tam was away doing some work in Cardiff, and the plan was to pick him up…

Aston Hill – Root Canal

Its been a long time since I’ve been to the Hill of Aston. I have never been able to pull off a good result, and I find the tracks pretty hard to get on with if I’m honest. But the Root Canal race was set to change all of this, apparently… We had managed to blag…

WDMBA Mountain Ash Race

The second round of the WDMBAs was a week away and I hadn’t entered. I was pretty keen to go after doing so well at round 1, but Dirt Mag still had my bike on test, so I had pretty much resigned myself to the fact that we weren’t going. That was until Tam suggested…
