In our countdown to Christmas we ask a selection of mountainbikey people what they want for Christmas.

First up, all round mountain bike genius Mark Weir


"One thing I would like is for these contractors to get out of my wallet and finish my frickin house. It has been two years and i'm ready to be that guy on the grassy knoll with a high powered fire arm.

But all I really want is a new shovel. This one (below) although still works great the handle broke and its done all it can. Now all it's really good at is hurting my back. This use to be a spade, it wore this way after 2 years of digging on my pump track. "

Holy Moly! Whose spade is that shovel? Look at the wear (Weir) on that!
