Cool to see - been a while. It's in the UK just North of London and is the training/coaching spot for UKbikeSkills. Used to see quite a few videos of this place back in the day via the old ChocolateFoot forum... from where it seems half the members decided they wanted the real thing and moved to Canadia.

I have a foxy and a Summum that I brought in from Europe to Canada. They were competitively priced from the store I got them from. And I was coming off a SC carbon and the foxy was cheaper and a much better ride.

I think it partly depends on the series and what level you're racing at.

In the races that have seeding, you'll find yourself spending 1 or 2 whole days riding the transitions, talking lines and waiting to start stages with a bunch of riders of the same level as you (assuming your seeding run went to plan!) - who you either haven't met before, or have battled with on previous occasions. The lower down the pack you are - the more relaxed the pace/attitude and often the camaraderie is closer.

In races without seeding, you'll tend to find yourself riding all practice and race day with your mates - except on the timed stages but you still share stories and experiences while buzzing after the end of each stage before you set off for the next.

So I don't know if it's necessarily more social than DH but often you'll find yourself spending more time on the hill/s with other riders you might not otherwise... but as ever it's up to the individual how sociable you want to be! I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven't already - it's just as fun as DH but with that extra sense of adventure and shared experience that mountainbiking does so well

Very cool, a good insight into why MX is such good cross-training for DH too with regards the speed differentials and being able to 'see it coming a lot sooner' when on the bike vs. crosser or rally car.

Makes you realise how close these guys are in speed , you think of rider X being way faster than another but in reality it's fuck all , if there was a ghost rider video with the top 10 on screen at the same time there would be hardly anything in it.

I'm tired of WC racers complaining about tracks not suiting their skillsets. F*ck off already and adapt. Variety is good, and the guys who come out on top at the end of the season are the ones who can ride everything. I can't believe guys like Hill and Brendan still haven't adapted to pedally tracks...more
