It’s North Wales butt innit see? The land of the Athertons, Antur Stiniog, Al Bond, Llangynog, sheep and slate mines, basically the nerve centre of the National off-Road Grid.

    The Dirt Norco team is amazing but I was thinking if the K9 Industries bike is as good as you mentioned it to be when you reviewed it a while ago, next year you should be the Dirt K9 Industries Team.

    British Mag, British Riders and a British bike you guys have helped test the Norco so surely getting one of the best suspension designs with riders who know what there after and getting K9 on the world cup circuit would be a win win

      Don’t tell me that! Switzerland is so much closer and so far nothing! Maybe I have a nice surprise this evening!

    Just read Seb Kemps article ‘Enduro’. I race enduro and do ok, probably because I raced DH. I did a cross country race for fitness last weekend and got totally rinsed. It was like a different sport! – 29″ wheels, hardtails, carbon everything, lycra, sprint up, on the brakes on the downs. Seb if you think Enduro is a “rebranded name for cross country riding” and “even though really it [Enduro] isnt anything different to cross country”, mate you’re miles off the mark. If you’re gonna write an article like this again, I suggest you enter a xc race first!!!

      I think Seb is referring to cross country riding – not racing. Riding, where the emphasis is on the fun downhills & technical stuff and the grind up isn’t a race but gets you to the top for more fun. I think he knows what goes on at an XC race.
