Last week one of our sponsored cyclists Ben Thomas took to the HSBC British National Marathon Championships in the Isle of Man to see if he could retain his title and the national jersey to be the champion of the UK.
The team at Weldtite are gearing up for this weekend's Mountain Mayhem. It's time to give your bike a good fettle and load those carbs! We've put a crack team together to tackle the 24 hour challenge with a mix of downhillers and endurance mountain bikers which will make for a good mix of skills and speed out on course.
Determined not to believe the hype that UK mountain biking is currently broken due to trails resembling the Somme I entered a couple of post xmas character building outings to toughen me up for greater challenges to come.
This year the event saw 20,000 participants, 300 exhibitors, and 150,000 visitors over a 5 day period! It's a true cycling festival. I've been lucky enough to race many great events over the last few years but in terms of cycling festivals Roc d'Azur is without a doubt the one to attend. There's no better way of ending the season. It's another one for your bucket list!
