British Enduro Series 2016 – Round Two Roundup

Gallery2

Second round done and I’ve got to say that was a much more pleasurable experience! We had a little rain but the majority of the weekend we had sun! The track was massive (34 miles) and the riders were flagging!

With the sun showing us its summery rays it baked the sludgy, sloppy trails into a claggy, sticky, clumpy, lumpy mess! With riders going ‘bum over boobs’, back wheels slipping all over the place and generally decking out on anything steep and tight, this round made a great spectator sport!

Oil came first again in the hardtail category, but this time he had some competition! Heather came in 4th after a technical in the woman’s category and we had a nice surprise from a chap called Darren Evans who was the only hard tail in Elite and he was on a Switchback! Darren came 15th out of over 60 riders in the Elite category!

Well done guys! happy racing! Thanks to all you hardtailers that came and joined in our category and I hope to see more of you hardtailers at the next round!
Enjoy our little edit of our experience and just to let you know the little trump was Oli not me!!

The next round is at Afan Bryn Bettws on 11/12th June. We’re hoping you guys can make it! We’ll be there with a few demo bikes if you fancy taking one for a spin and we’ll have a bunch of frames for you to look at.

Don’t forget, We have some sweet prizes to give away for the overall hardtail series winner! A Mk2 Switchback Ti for 1st place.  A Mk2 Switchback 631 and an apparel bundle for 2nd place And a Mk2 Switchback 631 for 3rd place.

British Enduro Series 2016 – Round One Roundup

Well the first round of the BES is done! It was cold, wet and a complete mud bath! it was one of the most gruelling weekends I’ve experienced in a long time and I wasn’t even riding!

Thankfully the riders remained more positive than I did and regardless of the conditions they made the most of it and enjoyed shredding the Ti Switchback’s and Sherpa around some of the best countryside Dumfries has to offer!

Unfortunately our new Easy-up didn’t turn up which was in one respect a shame, however pretty much everyone had ‘battened down the hatches’ and no one was walking around perusing the offerings of the easy-up village.

Due to the weather we were unable to get any riding footage as we simply couldn’t risk the camera equipment getting damaged, however we did manage to catch some of my ‘in the trenches’  mood and a little of what happened when the sun briefly showed itself. We also managed to get a moment with Si Paton the events organiser.

We said we’d make a little edit of our experience at each British Enduro and so although its not full of Hard Tail shredding etc it is a real depiction of what a difficult weekend the weather gave us.

The next round is in Afan on the 7/8th of May. We’re hoping you guys can make it! We’ll be there with a few demo bikes if you fancy taking one for a spin and we’ll have a bunch of frames for you to look at.

Remember! We have some sweet prizes to give away for the overall hardtail series winner! A Mk2 Switchback Ti for 1st place.  A Mk2 Switchback 631 and an apparel bundle for 2nd place And a Mk2 Switchback 631 for 3rd place.

  • First place will receive our benchmark Titanium Switchback frame.
  • Second place will receive a Switchback 631 frame plus an apparel bundle.
  • Third prize will also receive a Switchback 631 frame.

So yes – we’re excited about this and can’t wait to get to Round One. The dates are now confirmed as follows ;

  • BES Rd1 26/27th March

We’d love to keep you in the loop about what we’ve got planned for the BES throughout the whole of 2016 at all rounds.
