A Wet Windy Weekend in Wales

Another wet and very windy weekend here in West Wales. We don’t let that stop us though. A good Spring clean (even though its Winter) early on Saturday morning without waking Anna and Morgan meant that the house was ready for the Christmas decorations to go up.

Pivot 24/12 MTB Race 2018

It was way back in 2011 that I last headed to Newnham Park near Plymouth for the Bontrager 24/12 MTB Race. It is now sponsored by Pivot so is the Pivot 24/12 MTB race but the format is the same with a few additions. For me that was a 12 hour solo mountain bike race...

Scott MTB Marathon Builth Wells

Time for a MTB race – well, a non-competitive, mass start MTB personal challenge really! After being asked to race for Scimitar Endurance I felt as though I should at least enter a few of the races that the others in the team were doing. Chris was signed up to do the 1st in the series...
