Cy Turner – Interview – Cotic Bikes

Recently I took a drive over to Calver, a small village in the Peak District on the outskirts of Sheffield. Calver is surrounded by the big hills of the Hope Valley and definitely looks like the kind of place you would want to run a bike company from. Upon arrival at Cotic HQ we were […]

Myriam Nicole Interview

I was lucky enough to sit down with French downhill rider and world cup title winner, Myriam Nicole, at the latest round of the World Cup in Fort William, Scotland. Myriam came back from a number of seasons dogged by injury to take the overall elite women’s title in 2017 and put an excellent start […]

Katrina Strand – Interview

I was recently lucky enough to catch up with Katrina Strand (sadly not during a visit to British Columbia or anything like that). Katrina is an awesome lady who has been a bit of a role model of mine for some time now. Katrina has been mountain biking for over 15 years and has represented […]

Flow MTB – Anita Hartley Interview

If like me you have searched for a place which brings together the latest in women’s mountain biking fashion then Flow MTB could be the place for you. Anita Hartley is the founder of Flow MTB. Partly as a result of the strong connection we share through our shared ownership of Commencal Meta Purples I managed […]

Anna Glowinski – Interview

If you are into mountain biking you will have heard of Anna Glowinski. You might have seen her pumping round a BMX track or watched her on TV and Youtube. Maybe you have even seen her company, Anna’s Legs, producing one of the best looking pair of leggings for cycling I have seen. Anna Glowinski […]

MTBChix&Trails – Interview with Michelle Haigh

If you are a keen female mountain biker and are looking for a supportive group of like-minded women, send your request to the group here. The amazing women behind this group are: Dawn Hopkins, […]

Dirt it More: Interview with Magda Szczekutek

Some time ago I managed to address my shyness and get in touch a lady that I was following for a while. As some of you might know I come from Poland and Magda Szczekutek is a girl from my home turf that some of you will know as a Dirt it More rider. She travels around Europe […]

Quick Questions – Brett Tippie Interview

A few weeks ago I managed to get in touch with bona fide legend Brett Tippie, a guy that many of you will know as a founding member of the freeride mountain bike movement, someone who has been there from the early days. For others Brett will be the super positive and extroverted presenter of Crankworx and other major […]

Bike Park Wales – Interview with Anna Astley

I have a confession to make; despite riding for a while now I’ve never been to Bike Park Wales. God it feels good to finally say that out loud. Bike Park Wales is one of the biggest bike-parks in UK with an incredible amount of trails and an uplift in the heart of Welsh lands. […]
