UK racing is firing on all cylinders at the moment. We’ve just got our first ever Olympic medal in mountain biking (Tommy Pidcock we salute you), Evie Richards stormed to 7th in the women’s Olympic race, DH national champs a few weeks ago served up some cracking racing and XC and Enduro national champs were both hotly contested this weekend.
If you’re looking for some interesting insights from inside the British downhill scene, take a listen to this pod from the fine folks at Singletrack. If pods are just too damn long for you, instead indulge yourself in 7 and a half minutes of raw footage from the race.
It’s been a tough couple of years for event organisers and they need your support more than ever. It can’t be overstated how important for the sport these events are so if you’ve never raced then this summer is the perfect time to get stuck in.
You may claim it’s not your thing or you just enjoy chilled riding but I would put good money on the fact that once you’ve nailed that one run (or 5 #enduro), you’ll be coming back for more.
That, or you’ll DNF (you and me both)
