Having a good friendship with Mike since we both started racing downhill, it was about time we got together to make an edit. We set out on finding some time in between racing and training to get out and film for two days. A day of trail riding and a day of downhill. We decided on CwmCarn and the Risca Valley for the trail bike scenes with the help of Darrell of Cwmdown uplift services letting me hang out the side of his van filming at 25 MPH and carting us around for the day. The second day we headed to the infamous Rheola downhill track. Rocky, rooty, fast and loose, it provides loads of variety in training and is probably one of the best tracks in the UK.

I first met Mike at Llangollen Welsh Champs in 2010, it was wetter than an otter's pocket and at that time the track was brand new and had basically become a straight line down one of the steepest hills in the country, absolute carnage. I remember seeing Mike, fully kitted out in tracksuit, football trainers and an Alloy MX jersey pinning it on his Norco and just thinking, "Man, I hope this boy in trackies doesn't beat me." I beat Mike that race but he got me in the 16 consecutively after that.
