This Saturday I joined a healthy crowd of BikeRadar and What Mountain Bike’s finest for a day of rowdy skidding in deepest, darkest Gloucestershire. Riding in some of the slipperiest mud I’ve ever encountered, I spent most of my day close to horizontal, trying desperately to stay upright on the bike. And as is now tradition, we all posed for a stupid group photograph.

The following day I headed over to Wales with resident enduro weapon Seb Stott to scare myself on what he described as “steep death, gnar-gnar trails”. As promised, the trails were super steep and sketchy, but I was not the one who got the biggest fright of the day — poor Seb exited a gnarly chute to discover a corner that he knew well had… well, completely disappeared as a result of recent forestry work. After almost flying into this unknown void at some reckless pace, he needed a few minutes to recover from the shock.”
