Well the good news is that track is in Wales.

Gutted I can't make it, my kinda terrain that, looks like a right giggle. I will be burning to a crisp in Sri Lanka instead, trying not to get dragged across too much reef.

i would hazard a guess you would be right. although I've never taken my mountainboard anywhere near a bowl, I have skateboards for that :P with the longer wheelbase i think you would struggle to get an effective pump out of a normal bowl transition (well, our tiny British cousins of the monsters you...

some of the rock in the alps i've probably come close but just been lucky. Imagine the terrain in israel is comparable to cyprus and that is proper rubber shredding material. Never managed to ride over there but the rock climbing smashed be to bits in hours. I don't always ride 10's but do mainly. T...

slide sideways and mud, small stones (gravel) and dog shit will end up in your wheel. Maybe it's just the type of riding i do? Not had a puncture in about 8 or 9 years. Maybe they could be good for park and smooth stuff but for what I like to hit, the wheel doesn't need re-inventing. 10's for the win!

There was a group of italian design students at the world downhill a couple of years back who had a project to come up with something for mountainboarding. This was one of the designs we were presented with. We had to give feedback on all of them and my thoughts immediately sprung to 'what happens w...

i'll introduce you to Si and Mark on firday bud. Think they and some of the other Plymouth riders could well be game for it. Would be pretty cool to be able to see what a range of different riders bodies are up to on their runs.

changing bushing duro is a very handy thing indeed, giving you a stiffer ride without cranking down and limiting the range of turn available. Truck angle is also very important. a lower angle truck is more stable to ride becasue any wobbles or oscilations you encounter result in less actual turn and...

good work mark. I've taken to a more educational role in the skate park with scooter kiddies. They obviously can't see that there is such a thing as park ettiquette so a bit of a non-confrontational chat can go a long way. Some of them however do need a good tap with a slide puck, unfortunately it d...

they're great for cutting your fingers open on once you've skuffed the edges up a bit. A gimmick for hanging on the wall imho. Ridden a couple of ali decks and they both felt like all kinds of wrong. That thing may have holes for weight reduction but it still weighs in heavier than a landyachtz evo ...

interesting that that's how some designs end up on the books of those companies. If there are great designers like matt barker behind the design work that these companies end up being able to mould off the bat, then there could be some very interesting finds to be had in those catalogues. All we nee...

you hit it with so much speed you shat yourself every time, but despite that you could get round it with some quite shady lines, just seemed to hug you in and spit you round.

first right-hander at swmbc because if you got drawn in the inside gate you could take everyone out in the first corner and cruise down the rest of the track. Other than the fact that you couldn't ride it as a berm it was sweet. Second favourite was the roller berm at swmbc because if you were regul...

They used to be produced by Ground Industries but since they went bust I imagine they're up for grabs so anyone can produce these beasts? I would guess (possibly wrongly) that GI found the tyre in one of the huge chinese rubber catalogues and had them branded. There are some very strange and intere...
