Snowy photos:Update Update

Are truly snowy countries laughing at us when we woop with joy at 2 millimetres of snow?
Okay we have serious snow now, well, 300mm which is a lot for us.
The Dirt Office is frozen solid and I had to walk five miles just for a cup of internet.

Here are a few updated woops of joy (and woe) from around the country (and other countries)

I wondered how long it would be before somebody sent in a snow cock.
The answer, not long at all!
The students of Jesmond have been hard at it.

Willy Snow (good name in the conditions) said: “me and my mates found this random as fook exercise bike thing in a park when i was messing about getting some drifting in on my bike… it was a bit strange to say the least!”

First up, Dirt editor Mike Rose went sledging last night and broke his foot the silly bugger. He’s snowed in so can’t go anywhere anyway, but his house is the only one with internet for miles around so we are using it as a make shift office until the real office thaws out.

We have our wintertrack in Vuokatti. It´s pretty much in the middle of Finland.
It takes real commitment to ride downhill here in the winter. We have our share of snow and the it takes about an hour just to shovel the snow of our track… I think the experience of riding in snow has something very real to it because usually the suspension and brakes are frozen and you don´t really have any grip (I didn´t even have studed tires until this winter!).
So here are our snowy photos.

Hi there, just seen the snow posts on the website just I’ve got a few of Jake Ward riding photographed by my self (Martin Brown) Shot in Suffolk. It beats being indoors revising for exams in January.

Tommy Wilkinson “The first one is near Chew Green – an old roman fort up the Coquet valley and just past makendon farm. Very good if you like roman history and also a very good environment for cheviots crossed with swales, a nice hardy sheep for the higher ground.

The second one is the old A1 out of Alnwick, home to the duke of northumberland and the uk’s second largest inhabited castle.

I hope you appreciate these snow pictures complete with fascinating Northumbrian history.”

Francois-Desmaison

Francois Desmaison “…from the city of Limoges (87) in France.
I send to you some pictures of my yesterday snowy ride in La Jonchère. This spot is like the Valleys in Wales. Very fun to ride.”

While us Brits are rubbing salt onto our roads Yannick Garric and his mates are rubbing that same salt into our open snowy wounds by sending us hot, dry, blue sky photos from the south of France. Cheers pal.

Juho Sipilä from Finland says” Well, it’s been like -20 degrees here in Finland for a few weeks now and the snow on the slopes measures between 50 and 100cm.
That doesn’t stop riding though.
We’re once again hosting an annual Snow-DH at a local skiresort/ Bikepark Messilä in Hollola, some 100km north of the capital Helsinki.

The race will take place on the 13th of Feb, and we’re hoping the local star Matti Lehikoinen will again be able to attend, as he won the event last year.
Also, hitting the snowpark jumps in the morning when the lifts are closed and the slopes untouched is quite special, the jumps measure easily from 10meters all the way up to 20m.”
