Here’s a bit of background info:
Mike Marsden of Borderline Events and Steve Deas of Innerleithen has teamed up with Alpine Bikes to bring you the ‘Alpine Bikes Winter Series’
I’ve known Steve for quite a few years and since the ‘Winter Wet & Wild’ series of 2005 have had great respect for Steve’s track building and design skills. When I first spoke to Steve in August I knew that with our skills combined we had a great chance to bring one of the best Innerleithen Winter Series yet.
This brought me in contact with Bryan Shedden of Alpine Bikes who was happy to show his support along with Trek and Fox to not only bring you some great round and series prizes but by assisting with the costs has managed to keep the price down to just £55 per round.
So here we have the first 3 races in 2010 on three very different courses. You know as well as I do they will not only be a mix but a challenge to the best riders out there. Steve has said that the aim of the courses is fast, flowy and technically challenging with a particular aim at speed!
I know we all love those sections at Inners on some of the original tracks that are just amazing to ride. You can also expect some old sections re-built and some new sections put in to join the best of all the courses and what Innerleithen has to offer.
