Normally, good ship Bangers and Mash spends it’s time trawling the murky waters of Youtube in the hope of finding gold otherwise hidden by the ever powerful algorithm. However, recently the captain has had one eye focused on Instagram and has found the following gems.
First up, Steel City Media have been hard at work putting together Union, a race team that looks to support talented riders and media folk. It’s early days yet, but just looking at the list of supporting brands and the riders they’ve chosen makes it clear this is going to be good.
Secondly, vertical meter eater Ben Hildred has just ticked over 500,00ft of climbing in 2021 which, to put it simply, is insane. This averages out a 1240m a day. For most of us, that’s a big day out. Ben has done this day in day out for 123 days and shows no signs of slowing down yet. If you’re unfamiliar with Ben’s other exploits, have a watch of the video below. The man is a hitter.
