“Ever went for an Urban MTB ride like this? :O
There are many ingredients to Finn Iles’s recipe for success, but focus is undoubtably essential. Whether Iles’s is thundering towards yet another World Cup win on the UCI circuit or filming in the streets of Quebec at 5 a.m. – the call time for Red Bull Purest Line – his focus allows him to mute everything but his bike and the track when he’s in the saddle.
Red Bull Purest Line marks just another highlight of Iles’s 2017 summer. From graduating high school to securing the World Cup overall title with two races left in the season, the future is an open book for him.”

You’ve got to get up early to find the streets this quiet.

David started mountain biking in the 90’s, by which he means “Ineptly jumping a Saracen Kili Racer off anything available in a nearby industrial estate”. After growing up and living in some extremely flat places, David moved to Yorkshire specifically for the mountain biking. This felt like a horrible mistake at first, because the hills are so steep, but you get used to them pretty quickly.

Previously, David trifled with road and BMX, but mountain bikes always won. He’s most at peace battering down a rough trail, quietly fixing everything that does to a bike, or trying to figure out if that one click of compression damping has made things marginally better or worse. The inept jumping continues to this day.

    I hope he picked that bin up.
