Latest mountain biking News and Events

Remember 2016? The E-Bike was on it's meteoric rise, like Trump and Brexit, people weren't sure and there was alot of opinions....For some, if you'd bought one you'd given up on real mountain biking and threatened the very fabric of our sport. The argument? It's got a motor, land access, erosion it's dumb. The counter being why not when you could lap the local between finishing work and kids dinner 3 - 1 over a normal mountain bike a, injury recovery and they are fun.

What is more annoying? Getting a puncture or trying to set your bike up so you don't get them? I'll tell you, both annoy the hell out of most people. But at least one of the grievances can be alleviated by following afew simple steps, and we don't mean avoiding the rough stuff on the trail.

 

We asked Sarah to write a quick blog about her self, not an easy thing to do but it lends for an interesting read, growing up a stones throw from Schladming and deciding to move to the UK to ride bikes.

What brought you to the UK? - people often ask half in disbelief. No offence, the UK is a great country with lots of opportunities. But the thing is, I speak mostly to mountain bikers ...and I’m from Austria, I grew up in the Alps, surrounded by stunning mountains, next to a beautiful big lake.
