WATCH PART 1 HERE: vimeo.com/89189686 This is the second of a three part mini-series following the riders that make up the family that is the Ibis Cycles UK Enduro Team. Scour the realms of Scotland and rummage the depths of endurance racing to get a detailed glimpse of what makes everyone in the team excited to just ride their bikes. Revolving around the inaugural year of the POC Scottish Enduro Series, we take a new direction to show you the best and most realistic action from select races. Part 2 - "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - is all about our Ibis girls, ex-downhill champion Emma Guy and sport scientist Lesley Ingram. We follow their weekend at Ae Forest, round four of POC Scottish Enduro Series, as they tackle the challenging distances and slick trails. With heavy rain forecast for the weekend, everyone was keen to get out riding before the clouds made an appearance. Luckily the rain stayed off for the most part and we were gifted with a great weekend's racing! /////////////////////////////////////// Shot and Edited by Dominic Simmons • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • MUSIC 'Run (Instrumental)' by Josh Garrels . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . team.ibiscycles.co.uk | facebook.com/ibiscyclesuk 2pure.co.uk | facebook.com/2pure dominicsimmons.co.uk | facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms

Scour the realms of Scotland and rummage the depths of endurance racing to get a detailed glimpse of what makes everyone in the team excited to just ride their bikes. Revolving around the inaugural year of the POC Scottish Enduro Series, we take a new direction to show you the best and most realistic action from select races. Part 1 - "The Lone Wolf" - closely follows young Lewis Kirkwood as he tackles the gruelling Scottish winter in one of the country's wildest race locations, Nevis Range. Horrendous weather conditions combined with the challenge of collecting data for his Edinburgh Napier University Project provides us with a demanding and unique perspective of Lewis' weekend. /////////////////////////////////////// Shot and Edited by Dominic Simmons • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • MUSIC 'Slip Away (Instrumental)' by Josh Garrels . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . team.ibiscycles.co.uk | facebook.com/ibiscyclesuk 2pure.co.uk | facebook.com/2pure dominicsimmons.co.uk | facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms

Added a new video Two Alike 1/23/2014 7:34 AM
C138x104

Scottish identical twins Ross and Stuart Wilcox tear up the single track, but with two very different styles. One downhill rider, one XC rider but both shredders in their own right. From Dominic Simmons/2pure, Back in 2010 I launched a short film titled "Two of a Kind" that delved into the lives of Scottish identical twins Ross and Stuart Wilcox. At the time, both were youth riders racing cross-country and downhill in the same season. An interesting combination - but they were winning races in both, and in style. Wind-forward three years and Ross is now racing only downhill and Stuart is racing only cross-country. For both, deciding to race a different discipline to the other was never going to be an easy decision, but as we explore in this sequel short film "Two Alike" both twins remain unified in such a way that they always find the time to ride together. facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms ----- Filmed and Edited by Dominic Simmons Additional Filming by Stephen Hughes Music by John Talabot

Just before Gary headed off to Finale Ligure for the last EWS race of the season, we grabbed a day with him to shoot a video of him shredding some of the best trails in his home Tweed Valley. As always, Gary was riding flat out – not afraid to get the 650b wheels that he was testing stuck into some action. Check out the video below. /////////////////////////////////////// Shot and Edited by Dominic Simmons Cover photo of Gary Forrest by Ian Linton • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • MUSIC 'RSPN' by Blank & Kytt . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . team.ibiscycles.co.uk | facebook.com/ibiscyclesuk 2pure.co.uk | facebook.com/2pure dominicsimmons.co.uk | facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms

Added a new video Scott Laughland • At Home 10/3/2013 12:51 PM
C138x104

Racing and training in Europe is hard to beat, but everyone has that one local trail that no matter where you have been, you look forward to returning home and getting out on. Gaining momentum through his race season and competing in the European rounds of the Enduro World Series, Scott Laughland returns home to ride his local trails after finishing in 6th place at the Ischgl European Open, Austria. Filmed on a crisp autumnal day, the trails were dry and the sun was shining, perfect conditions to ride flat out. After completing a 5 year University degree in Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Scott now plans to switch his focus to Enduro racing for 2014 where the goal is to be competitive in the World Enduro Series. facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms ----- Filmed and Edited: Dominic Simmons Rider: Scott Laughland Music: Denial by I Break Horses

Added a new video Western Highs - Fort William World Cup 6/14/2013 10:50 AM
C138x104

Fort William was the first stop in the UCI DHI World Cup series for 2013, and year after year the crowds never fail to flock to the remote Nevis Range in their masses. Over the past years, there has been an increasingly large media presence on the World Cup circuit and output seems to have become melted into one with almost everyone doing something reasonably similar. So for this year, I decided I would do things slightly differently by focussing the story in this short film around the changing year to year conditions experienced at the Nevis Range. In 2012, we had rain, thick fog and limited visibility. For 2013, the sun was out, temperatures were high and we experienced some of the best weather ever had at this stop of the World Cup series. The title "Western Highs" illustrates this. Listen to event organiser Mike Jardine describe differences that the weather can make, and enjoy watching the fastest mountain bikers in the world battle down the infamous Fort William track. ///////////////////////////// Filmed & Edited by Dominic Simmons Music: I don't want to - STRFKR facebook.com/DominicSimmonsFilms Shot on Canon C300.

Added a comment about video Crawfy Takes the Ripley for a Wee Spin 6/1/2013 1:20 PM
C138x104

The idea of this video was to show the only Ripley in the UK being ridden on trails that most british riders will recognise (Glentress is well known!) and some of the trails we filmed at were reasonably techy, but a combination of Crawfy and the Ripley make them look tame ;-)

After three solid weeks of rain, I took the first available opportunity to get out with Calum McRitchie to test out my new camera and some of its functions. Therefore, this is purely a test video, but I still took the same approach to shooting it as I normally would. I didn't have any custom profiles for this shoot and hadn't even tested or chosen any of the gamma functions, so I have no doubt the image quality can be improved even more. Light colour correction was performed in Magic Bullet Looks. ///////////////////////////// Filmed.

MOVE - a short film created by Dominic Simmons. Featuring Scott Laughland and Ross McArthur. In my opinion, far from my best work. This short film was created as part of a school project, where the theme was of movement. The use of video is a fantastic medium to show movement, in particular cycling. There is also a concept of journey built in. From urban > rural. Night > day. /////////////////////////////// Directed. Edited.

A short highlight video of my year filming 2011. I have never done anything like this before so thought it would be a bit of fun, and would give me the chance to try out some new things which I thought looked cool. You learn from your failures! I think it is fair to say that you can see a definite improvement throughout the year!

Added a product review for POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Pads 12/25/2011 3:22 AM
C138_joint_vpd_2_0_knee

Good all round pads.

Rating:

The Good: Extremely protective, fairly comfortable, with good movement.

The Bad: Get warm after you have been riding for a considerable length of time or in hot conditions.

Overall: Some of the best pads I have used, great all round, but maybe too much for some people and some riding.
