This weekend is like NYE for mountain bikers. The culmination of the current season in the World Champs in Champery and the start of a new season with a clean slate and some resolutions to 'do it better' in the next 12 months.
Whether by chance or design its also a time to sort out new bikes, gear and sponsorship and I have some exciting news in that department. For The Riders have supported me for 3 years although I've never actually be sponsored by a bike company they've stocked. In short, they are awesome guys and their work on the tools is without equal. So, speaking to proprietor Tim, I said I wanted to become an FTR full-blood. He replied with the words Santa Cruz Carbon Blur XC and we were on! SRAM XX, Louis Garneau, NS Dynamics, Shotz nutrition and Schwalbe tyres are also on board with a couple more to announce soon. Many thanks to all for making another year on the trails possible. Also, to my family and friends for your continuing support - its greatly appreciated.
PS. Pics or the new rig are coming soon.
