Boardman Team Full Suspension 650b review

Sunday, 10. 20. 2013  –  Category: Mountain biking

After a year without a mountain bike, I finally got round to replacing my stolen Carrera Fury hardtail. I had been intending to upgrade to a full suspension mountain bike for some time and had my eye on the Boardman Team FS which had received many good reviews. Boardman distributes this range of bikes exclusively […]

Duathlon training – stepping up

Saturday, 06. 13. 2009  –  Category: Mountain biking, Running

I’m planning on competing in a few duathlons this autumn, starting in just over 3 months time at the Xtreme Terrain Festival where I ran my first duathlon last year. Following that I have my eye on an adventure race in October (10k, 25k MTB, 1.5 kayak), and hoping to do both the Mudman duathlon […]

I took part in the Xtreme Terrain Festival Full Duathlon at the end of September. Here’s a quick write up… drafted a few weeks ago, but hadn’t got round to publishing until now. The XTF was hosted at Hawley Lake, Camberley on an army training ground. A series of events were taking place including a […]

6 days to go before the Xtreme Terrain Festival and the 10k/24k/5k run/mountain bike/run event I’m taking part in. Spent this morning doing a little bike maintenance, switched my road tyres for off-roads in preparation, and did what probably will be my last training run. I did roughly the equivalent of half the distance in […]

Save MTB weight for racing

Wednesday, 08. 20. 2008  –  Category: Mountain biking

I’m entering my first mountain bike race in a month and have started to think about working on technique and whether I can make my bike a bit lighter. I ride a Specialized Hardrock, which is fairly low end and not really built for racing I suspect. I mostly use it for cycling to work […]

Kris Holm: extreme unicycle nutcase

Monday, 08. 20. 2007  –  Category: Mountain biking

A non-snowboarding post here, but it is the summer afterall. Or at least its supposed to be. It doesn’t seem very summery here in London at the moment. Cycling to work this morning in the rain, the one consolation is that with whether like this it doesn’t seem too long til the snowboarding season starts […]
