So here's a fun chilled edit to get me back into the swing of things, shot at home in Yorkshire over a couple of random days. I know I'm not firing on all cylinders just yet but I'm getting there. Thanks again for all the support people. I will be back...

 Akrigg on one cylinder beats most V8's so this video is 4.5 minutes well spent. His buddies nose down the rock deserves points too.

 its not mountain biking unless you have an insane dog on the trails with you. My sheepdog/Airedale mix can run faster than I can bike for 3-4 hours non-stop.

 If there was a superchamps style event where they had to compete in ten different types of cycling, I don't think there's anyone who could beat him overall.

 Always loved his unique mix of all-mountain and trials type riding. Thought it was only us amateurs that damaged ourselves repeatedly - all his vids look so perfect :-) How about an Akrigg crash compilation?
