Only a quick piece of news here.....

Saladini leads. World Cup 4X, Maribor, Slovenia

We just spotted this on the Orange Bikes website. Its a Prototype that's for sale, and is a cross between a Five and a Patriot, and aptly named the Strange Alpine Five. It's one of only 25 made, and a very rare breed, we think it was something that came about before the development of the new Blood, but we can only speculate! Orange want £2299 for the bike above, and its a chance to own a piece of true R'n'D (Research and Development) from a British company.
