 @mtb-scotland: Isn't Scotland one of the 51 states that make up the Federation of the United Kingdom?

I love the sound of crowds chanting at big events, 'F.U.K.F.U.K'

...that is one united country.

 Drier than Mike Levy's memory of the impossible climb

 @dubod22: The United Kingdom comprised of Great Britain (Scotland, Wales, England) and Northern Ireland.

All separate counties joined by a political union but we also have our own governments too.

 Was waiting to see the Dudes of hazard turn up in shorts and Tshirt, get the freelap out and start timing. Then I realised it wasnt muddy enough.

 @johnnyboy11000: WTF? Why do you lads have dog shit on your trails mate?!
  • 3 1
 @mybaben: because people are c*nts
  • 1 0
 @mtb-scotland: that sucks. On our trails, the c*nts have the decency to leave the shit on the side of the trail in neat little bags. They’re all over the place.

 @mtb-scotland: That sucks! I hate sharing trails with hikers.

 Please make these longer, you must have loads more footage, just stitch it together and bang it out, forget the fancy editing
  • 24 2
 That doesn't look fun in the slightest.

 Ya... Riding fast and especially racing in ultra greasy, nasty conditions is really only slightly enjoyable until you crash

 @shredjekyll: after which it becomes very enjoyable?

 Ella Connolly greased that line waaaaay better than anyone else.

 I always think wet riding looks fun but in reality you start riding and it’s just terrifying! Smile
  • 2 2
 I'm always weirded out by people who think it's fun. It depends on the track and individual conditions but unless you have a Mechanic and someone who takes care of your clothes and you are a really good rider it's usually no fun at all. It's just a different game compared to dry conditions.
  • 5 1
 @KalkhoffKiller: With good wet weather gear it's heaps of fun. With improper gear, it's hell on wheels.
  • 1 0
 @KalkhoffKiller: it’s the reality of an English winter. Just have to embrace it. Having a van helps as it’s nice to have somewhere to change. It’s just puddles that ruin everything no one wants wet feet!

 @mikekazimer or que the "oh that's nothing compared to what I ride everyday" comments and the "anyone from BC could ride that anyday" comments....to whom we say "and thats why you are sitting on your couch watching this on pinkbike right"?
