Parkour Ride

October 8, 2014 | By | No Comments

Last Saturday we participated in the Parkour Ride event. This is a new bike racing concept where multi-discipline riders race up and down a multi-storey car park whilst manoeuvring obstacles.

There were a big mix of riders who raced on the day including pros from David Millar – Road, Liam Phillips – BMX, Manon Carpente – Downhill World Champion to an Ambulance Paramedic. Then there were the 5th, with George Garnier in the pro Fixed Gear category after his spectacular RHC performance. Joining him were Rudy Melo, Leo Tong and Alex Blomeley.

Watching Liam Phillips at the start line was incredible, he shot out from the gate at such a speed that he could over take anyone from the opening gun shot. The course was very narrow so if you had a good start or the inside line you would have had a good advantage. This was exactly how George felt after his head-to-head race, mentioning he could have gone faster but had no room to push through safely.

The event/course was more focused for BMXers resulting in the Top 3 being BMX riders followed by Mountain Bikers, but it was a very interesting and fun event to be involved in.

Lost and Found 500: BK- MTL

May 16, 2014 | By | 2 Comments

In a couple of weeks time myself Chris and Phil will be stepping out of our front doors and riding unsupported to Montreal. I say unsupported but a lot of good people are helping us achieve it – they can be found here.

I could wax lyrical about how this trip is about LOSING ourselves in nature and by doing so re FINDING our love for cycling in a purer way – but I won’t – It’s about 3 dudes going on an adventure on their bikes.

HOY: Media Launch

December 3, 2013 | By | No Comments

Saturday November 30th saw the 2nd round of the revolution series to come to my hometown of Glasgow. We were lucky enough to be invited along by Evans Cycles to watch the evenings racing and to have a good look at the new HOY bikes range. Which luckily enough for me meant I got to share 45 minutes on track with Sir Chris himself in order to have a closer look at the Fiorenzuola track bike in action.

Click Read more for the full report of the evening and initial thoughts on the range.
Many thanks to Sir Chris and Evans Cycles for the invite and to Stephen Hughes for the captures.

My final 2 weeks in Austin carried on the trajectory set up from the first. The Team Yacht Club guys were exceptional hosts and the racing coalition continued as we hit up Georgetown CX for a full weekends racing. I was fortunate enough to grab a 4th on the Saturday followed by a 2nd on the Sunday.

The evening before my departure John was putting on ‘Keep Cross Weird’ It was great to connect with John and indeed Kyle again. There’s some epic photos and write up over on Prolly’s

Thanks to everyone who made my trip what it was. See you in March.
