I'm going to Giggleswick from the 5th to the 12th of April and planning on bringing the bike. Anyone ever gone riding in or around that area? Its right in the Yorkshire Dales so the riding must be half decent?

Alright lads, I got a query, I assume loads of you like me make the trip to Fort William for the world cup in June, are the rumours about the tyre pit true?

Word is that there is a pit somewhere near the event village where all the teams chuck tyres that have only had one or two runs on them, my friend swears he got a set of High Rollers one year and it's not till now that I've begun to question how easy it would be for me to get a free set myself

Sorry, not buying that. All I can picture is WC team managers queuing up to chuck their tyres into a secret pit in the woods hoping nobody finds them? Or if it's not meant to be secret then a pit where people scarper to like rats to food in a bid to get the best tyres before others?

Yeah, I find both sides just as believable, I want to believe I can get the classic something for nothing however, it doesn't seem logical. Also just remembered half the teams sell used tires for next to nothing, ahh it shall be deemed a bs rumour

They'll just be selling them for buttons like other years is my guess.

Pretty sure the teams sell all the used tyres for dirt cheap, like fiver/tenner for a pair.

I'm pretty sure there is a secret pagan tyre burying ceremony that takes place deep in the forest...

£10 for a pair is a steal anyway
