There's something primal about riding remote, rocky, rainy terrain, and this is the setting for episode 2 of Fabien Barel Presents. He has journeyed to Scotland to find Joe Barnes for an experience in this harsh setting. Scotsmen must be hard and strong to survive, and it's the same for MTB riding in that area, as we discover with Fab and Joe.

 So used to riding in stuff like that, you don't even bother with a really waterproof jacket because you're gonna get soaked no matter what, you just have to keep moving and hope for the best

 The shale steeps footage was brilliant. Mad props to the man behind the lense as well as the talented riders.

 “Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
― Bruce Lee

 "I look out the window and it's a cold miserable day. I just think about like Greg Minaar in South Africa, Sam Hill and Rennie in Australia, all the guys in California. They've got this nice weather, they're out riding their bikes, sweating, getting hot and it's a bit harder for us guys here, but, that's why we're tougher than those boys." Steve Peat
