First off there is the Megavalanche out in Alpe d’Huez. We have a full crew of guys out there racing and reporting. There’s loads of sun and snow. Interestingly Mick Hannah and Eric Carter are both out their competing in this years event. Can’t wait to see what they thought of it. Billy Trailstar is keeping us up to speed with all the goings on, so keep checking back.
Then over in Whistler there is the Crankworx bike festival...this is massive. Wins so far for Sam Hill and Tracey Moseley in the Garbanzo Enduro DH, Cedric Gracia in the VW Biker X and Brain Lopes in the ’Jim Beam Air DH’ (A Line to you and me). Slopestyle this weekend, it should be bonkers.
Then there is the Euro Downhill and 4X Champs out in Elatohori-Pieria, Greece. So much going on.
Peaty is out with is bust foot, but where are the others? I hear that the Athertons are getting some practice in up in Fort William...
