Loving my 2017 Sweet Protection helmets. Both the new road Falconer and new Bushwacker II have been used this last week during coaching sessions with the British Cycling XC girls. Protecting your head is one of the most important things you can do when riding your bike and I was so glad to wearing such a good helmet when my wheelie went wrong last week !!!! (See pic below ! )
Also new for 2017 is the Dissenter All mountain helemet, using Sweet Protection's incredible technology in a more affordable helmet...... check out link below to see all the new stuff for 2017
Great to see my protection sponsor G-Form supporting a new entry level grassroots Enduro race at this years TweedLove 👍👍
Endurotastic news! At last - TweedLove's intro-level enduro event is here. We're sooo pleased to tell you we've teamed up with G-Form protection to create a brand new TweedLove event, the G-Form Enjoyro
To be held late afternoon and evening on Friday 9th June, as part of the three day long TweedLove on the Green Festival in Peebles, the race is shorter and easier than TweedLove’s other enduros and has been created for riders who fancy the thrill of enduro racing but are new to the sport or worried about fitness. The G-Form Enjoyro will also cater for some younger rippers, with the minimum starting age of 12, but with 12 to 14 year olds riding in a new ‘Generations’ category where they will ride with a parent or responsible adult.
There will be three race stages, all set in Glentress, with the event village at the expo at Tweed Green and we fully expect demand to be high - entries open tomorrow evening at www.tweedlove.com at 7.30pm....get IN!! ... See MoreSee Less
Napalmjeff AdamThis sounds like an event i might be able to handle cos I'm not a very competitive person just ride for fun and the fitness that comes with riding is a bonus . Is there an age limit in this new event.
Keep me posted please I might have to take holiday from work for this.
It's a really interesting read and I hope will be the basis to help our sport grow in many areas and allow greater access to become available for us all to enjoy. Also great to see how important cycling off road is for so many peoples physical and mental health...
When I knew I would be stepping down from full time Enduro World Series racing at the end of 2015 I really wanted to find a young up and coming talent that Trek could nurture and give the opportunity of a Factory team support, great bikes and hopefully the final step of the ladder up to winning races...
I first met Katy at a British Cycling XC training camp a few years ago and soon realised this little junior could ride a bike as she showed me round a hot lap of Dalby Forest World Cup XC track! Pretty soon later that Katy realised that the DH bits of XC racing were the fun bits and what she wanted to do and started out racing Enduro..!!
I am happy to say that Trek also saw the potential in Katy, and what a great personality she is, a great bubbly positive character to have around the team is really important and I really hope that in time Katy will be on that top step of an EWS podium....
Great interview in the wee Scottish Pocket Rocket !!
We visit Scottish racer Katy Winton to find out more about the life of an elite EWS racer on the Trek Factory Racing Team. Today I had learnt something new, that the proper etiquette for saying hello ...
I first met Eric over 15yrs ago as he worked for one of the companies that sponsored the team I rode for at the time. A few years later I found myself out in the US and went to stay with Eric and Sadie just as they were setting up their company deity components. Fast forward a few short years and they have created an amazing business with great product and have supported so many riders along the way. As soon as I had the opportunity to work with Deity in 2012 we started work on a signature handlebar... fast forward 5 yrs and I see loads of my T-MO bars all over the world....so cool.
Sadie and Eric are two of the nicest people you could meet and to see what they have achieved with Deity is amazing...:I can't wait to see their big launch of new product at the end of this month.:..
Have a read of this great interview to find out more about them and Deity
Two individuals, so in sync, inseparable, and the unstoppable force behind Deity. Before the relaunch of the brand that will see new products and a new direction for the company, we focus on Sadie and...
