This coming weekend all three riders will be at the UK Enduro ...

James reports: SES Round 2 Innerleithen

This was to be my first Scottish Enduro race, but my third Enduro of the year at Innerleithen. It's always one of my favourite venues and never gets boring. Saturday was heading towards a brilliant day from the start - blue skies and sun from the off. No luck for me this weekend but these turns defo made up for it. Pics by @rae_mckenzie_islay A post shared ...

Naughty Northumbrian Preview – Mick and James on Tour

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dk0uESweLoA The Naughty is certainly as it's name suggests.  For 2018 we've moved the base to LinnBriggs farm, where messrs Singer ply their trade. It's a little further up the valley than last years venue, and space is a little tighter but that means that everything is less spread out, and the Wylam Beer Barn forms the focal point of the entire venue. If you're lucky, the MOD may also decide to ...

Progression sessions are the best.

  There's no denying it. Dicking about on your bikes, in the woods, is one of the best things ever. Some people get their kicks from pills, beer or whatever floats their boats, but we get it from egging each other on, in the dirt. Thing is, I know 3 Geordie lads who just get kicks from being in the woods on their bikes...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uzv0ZKis2IY The session we had up in the woods was definitely ...

Louise reports from Laggan SES

  Above image credit: Stephen Hardy Well.. what a weekend that was. Sunshine, amazing trails and some lovely people made for a fantastic time riding my bicycle. Laggan is the first of 6 Scottish enduro destinations this year and it’s a thumbs up from me. A relatively short course is a nice way to ease into the season and I think someone at no fuss did a sun dance that actually worked. ...

SDA Round 1 – Ae Forest

Ae is a staple venue of the Scottish DH and Enduro scenes - granted it's been raced for over 20 years now - but new faces, new course variations and bikes have always kept the challenge fresh. This weekend was no different, with the SDA arriving Thursday evening, aided by Drew Carters et all. they dug in some cheeky new sections to keep the 180 racers at this event on their ...

Hoonmasters – Dustin’ off the cobwebs

  Winters in the Northumberland are long - forget the idea of the industrialised, hard lived ex pit villages of the south of the county, which are undoubtedly a battle to negotiate - No, it is the beautiful, remote but vibrant communities in the rural areas that get the weather the longest.  Yet the riding does not stop, and much like every corner of Britain that is because passion mixed with borderline ...

Building our new Bergamont Encore Elite bikes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKKk0RvDflk 3 riders, 2 filmers, 6 bikes. Lots of good times. That's pretty much how I'd describe the DWClub supported riders . Are we a team? Not really. Team suggests sporting connotations - don't get me wrong, we race alright - but we're about more than that. We formed out of a desire to expose riders from regions that have been neglected for too long. Then, we thought about all the things ...
