if they race that trail down the back of ben nevis it’ll be mint/carnage. i walked up that thinking it’ll be a ace ride. then joe barnes did that vid with aaron gwin on it with gwin saying the rocks are bonkers.
if only i didnt live on the south coast – its a bugger of a drive.Posted 5 years ago
This just in… In the No Fuss newsletter. Just a little more info:
“Entries are coming in all the time for “This is Enduro Now” and it’s shaping up to be a pretty thumping end to the season!
Still keeping a few secrets up our sleeve, but our Facebook Page will keep you up to date with all the latest news. Location and information on individual stages will released in the near future… However, you wouldn’t be too far wrong if you had heard that it may be in the Kinlochleven area (subject to land owener’s permission) and that there is likely to be a whoop of a party planned at the Ice Factor by MTBcut, just to be sure that 2012 goes out with some style.
If you haven’t already heard about “This is Enduro Now” then The Dudes of Hazzard Video should bring you up to speed (WARNING: This video contains the most addictive theme song of all time and will be stuck in your head for the next month)”Posted 5 years agoscoobmwSubscriber
Talking to NoFuss the other day, still sorting out landowner permission I understand.
I’ve booked Kinlochleven accommodation anyway and just hoping nothing moves now.
Ciaran Path ?
Never been down that on foot before never mind bike…… that has a reputation though wot.Posted 5 years agoJohnbotMember
I’m still holding off, heard if it wasn’t in Kinlochleven it was going to be the far side of FortWilliam, don’t fancy that drive if i can help it. Did the Ciaran path on Sunday, technical as hell with a few short sharp technical climbs. It had been dry for days and it was still a river. No drainage at all. There are a few great tracks around there though.Posted 5 years agoFortunateson09Member
That was flipping excellent. I had a pretty frustrating day’s racing with some very novel brake malfunctions but still managed a decent-ish result. The brand new bike isn’t feeling quite so new anymore…
See you at Innerleithen in the new year for more winter enduros yeah?Posted 5 years ago
That was brilliant… Had a disaster of a weekend tbh but still a great time was had. Forgot how to ride a bike while queuing for stage one, then basically bounced out of control all the way down. Steep bit was hilarious, people everywhere- pushing, crashing, falling over, diving out the way… Some even riding! Results wise, that was me best stage
Then was doing better in stage 3 but managed to pull my mech off in one of the rutted sections and maul my wheel. Quick stop to ditch chain and wedge mech into cableguides then trundled and pushed the rest of it.
Thought it was all possibly a bit crazy but still, absolutely loved it.Posted 5 years agomunrobikerMember
That was good. Did gash but loved it.

That was my first event of this type and I loved it.
The trails were awesome and the atmosphere was great. I couldn’t make the saturday practice day so had to ride the trails blind, which added to the fun 🙂
I was riding a Dialled Alpine and it totally opened my eyes to what the bike is capable of, I got rattled around on the faster sections but otherwise it was great.
My chain came off about 30 secs into stage 1 but after that my only issues were arm pump and lack of ability.
definitley keen to do more of this in the future.Posted 5 years agomafiafishMember
Loved it despite the weather the late starters got at the top! Did my usual race fail and did pretty badly but thought the trails were great – just difficult enough whilst still allowing flat-out riding. ‘That’ corner was a laugh though, especially when there were 3 or 4 people sliding all over it!Posted 5 years ago
