Ignore the rain hammering at the office window. Here’s a little dose of two wheeled dusty summer via your local computer screen.
Tune in, brew up, skive off. It’s time to open your eyes and visualise; it’s Midweek Mini Movies!

Hannah goes Mega
Very few MTB races have this bit of magic when it comes to grabbing attention and establishing themselves as riders favourites. The Megavalanche is definitely one of those. At Bluegrass we support the Megavalanche since our brand was born in 2010 because we believe it is the best test lab we could ever think of. Our R&D guys aim high and take pride in our riders’ achievements. We have been lucky enough over the years to have some of the worlds’ best MTB riders taking an active part in the development of our products, and winning races along the way. For instance the very Megavalanche three years in a row from 2010 to 2012.
This year our video team followed Bluegrass Factory Development Team member Hannah Barnes.
Hannah is one of those athletes who are brave and determined, despite the odds against them. She brings enthusiasm, commitment and a positive attitude to each practice, event or competition she takes part in. Bringing her own dose of “magic” to the world’s most prestigious MTB marathon race.
So inspiring. Enjoy!
Trole Industries – Purbeck Gold
Last years summer was terrible weather wise, but in contrast this years has been more than great. Our Bike Team made the most of it by blasting through their local trails in the Purbeck Hills. Our guys in the Trole Ind Media Tank went along and captured loads of it, in fact enough to make 3 videos. Then our very own team rider Peter Treviss-Bell sat down to select clips and edit the whole thing…… took awhile.
So now in deepest autumn, with winter well on it’s way here is a reminder of the amazing summer we all had. Just don’t tell us you wasted it right?
