Added a new video Dying, Having a Good Time: My First EWS with Andrew Neethling - Polygon UR 5/26/2015 10:13 AM

Follow Andrew Neethling as he gives the EWS a go for the first time at Round 2 in Wicklow, Ireland. Sometimes the transition from racing the big-bike to the little-bike isn't so easy, but Needles lands a solid 27th place result for his first attempt. - Fred

Added a new video Soggy Racing Action from Last Week's BDS Round 2 in Fort William 5/22/2015 2:02 PM

Unfortunately, the pre-World Cup practicing was cut short due to bad weather. The normally 4:30+ track was scaled down to only the bottom motorway, with the winning time for the weekend being set by Gee Atherton at 1:20.780. Such a bummer, but that's racing. - Fred

Added a new video N1NO - the Hunt for Glory - Chapter 2 "On the Go" 5/21/2015 11:35 AM

With style for miles AND and multiple XC World Champ titles, follow Nino Schurter in his #huntforglory - Fred Being on a professional MTB team, there is a lot of travelling involved- before and during race time. Nino Schurter and SCOTT-Odlo MTB Racing spent a decent amount of time in South Africa and California preparing for the upcoming World Cup season, which starts this coming weekend in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic.. South Africa is where the team heads every year to start their season. Unlike recent years, Nino Schurter kicked-off the pre-olympic race season at the Bonelli US CUP and the Sea Otter Classic in California. "At Sea Otter, my team mate Jenny Rissveds and I competed in four races, and it resulted in 4 podiums. It was a very cool experience to race in California and definitely felt good to bike where MTB was born," Nino says. Chapter 2 gives an inside view into the team`s life and all the preparation professional racing requires. “Everything we do in 2015 has just one goal: to be the most fit possible for the Olympic Race in Rio in 2016.”
