I was always fairly good at maths; I even took it for A levels before I decided that formal Education was a waste of time. Yet, when I attempted to calculate how many photos I've taken in the last 5 years my grey matter got stuck on the wrong side of the bulk head and rapidly overflowed to the point where I sank. I simply have no idea, other than ...

Words: Louise Ferguson Images: Poole, Ferguson, The Hand. There’s no guidebook for success in life and figuring it all out is just part of the fun, which means there's no wrong way to do it. So when I started thinking about stuff I’ve learned this year, it proved to be difficult but it was quite nice to just sit down and think about what’s taken place.   Reflecting did eventually bring a few ...

Ooosha bugga. Probably not a phase you hear a lot, but a phrase that perfectly sums 2018 for the Descent-World Team. We won a Scottish Championship, smashed the Naughty Northumbrian to bits, made friends, crashed, saw insane progression levels and even managed to smile in between lying flat out on Invernesshire jump lines.  It was an experiment that took sail with the help of some wonderful sponsors, amazing friends and very talented ...

One thing we need to be clear about - this is not a review. Vittoria help fund the DWClub team so naturally, a review would be biased and unethical  This is more us telling you what we think about the tyres, and why we it's RAD to have such a good sponsor supporting a British crew. From that point on, you can make up your own mind on the tyres. https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=S3Kv9N4lF6k From ...

Wor Jackie is some boy. I'd love to tell you about how I first met Jackie, over a cuppa in Skinny Mick's bike repairs on Westgate Hill, Newcastle. Sadly, the story of his pound coin ring, and the way he looked into my eyes for a whole five minutes will forever remain a mystery, much like Jackie himself. As I learned more about Jackie, and how he was a multiple BMX national ...

SDA finals and Scottish Championships – Fort William

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzrfVxarWXI They say that you must keep your own house in order before you start to venture further afield, and with that in mind it was great to see a raft of WC riders at the Scottish Championships at Fort William last weekend. The track had undergone some interesting changes at the top of the course, with an entirely new, fresh cut section put in. The older generation may remember when ...

On a road to upside down – Tripping North East Scotland

When most people think of road tripping Scotland, epic vistas, endless singletrack and mighty Munro's are flavours of the month. Rightly so; Scotland has an abundance of terrain that going to get lost in seems appealing, but behind the lochs, mountains and summits, there is a burgeoning scene of riders building lines that until now, or at least on the same scale, have not existed in Scotland. Basically, riders are ...

What can you say about Tweedlove that hasn't been said before? Superlatives fall short; for this has to be the outstanding cycling festival in the UK currently running. It's inclusive - yet draws riders of exclusive standards; It's fun, light hearted yet slick and well presented; and it's transformational - what its done for cycling in the Peebles area is enormous. There are so many events happening - the G7, The Gritduro, ...
