BDS #3, Innerleithen, Scotland - Tom Gaffney Photo Gallery

Tom Gaffney just fired us over these shots from the weekends racing at Innerleithen…

You can see the results here, but this is a brief synopsis from Tom…

It was a stacked field with over 60 elites starting, including Sam Hill, Brook MacDonald, Steve Smith and Sam Blenkinsopp. But Adam Brayton smashed it to take the win, hooning off the bombhole jump infront of the crowd! Gee Atherton came in second, local Lewis Buchanan third, Brook Macdonald fourth and Peaty 5th.

In the elite womens Rachel Atherton took the win with Manon Capenter in second and Floriane Pugin third.

    Shocking coverage of the whole build up, qualification and race. Not one piece of information on what was the most stacked elite Bds to date. Dirt, i thought you were a DH Mag and website? Well done to brayton and all the British guys up there.

      Just so you know, we were actually asked by the organisers of this event NOT to promote it before it had finished. The reason being that they had run into issues with parking and were worried if they would have enough room for all the riders, let alone any spectators.

      Also, we commissioned Gee Milner to shoot a ‘Dirt TV’ video of the race and this has already been posted only 24 hours after the race itself has happened.
