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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
