bigquotesPour yourself a cuppa and get inspired to get outside in the slop for some good ol' fashion Mud blasting with (Lil) Robbo on his Reactor 275c. Looking stylish as ever repping Nukeproof's new Nirvana jacket and Blackline Trail Pants.

 Love those british muddy edits!!!
This mud is gold and fun to ride. The mud close to where I live is mostly clay mud, which is close to dog shit without the smell; the worst mud you can have. Zero grip, zero predictibility, 1 hour minimum of cleaning/maintenance after each ride... if you can ride, meaning when your wheels can keep turning.

 I did an enduro race in exactly the mud you're talking about. There was one stage with a freshly cut trail that was amazing to ride even in the wet, the rest was an absolute slidefest were all you could do was tripod down as fast as possible. And then you could either risk missing your transfer times because of the lines at the washing station or slog an additional 5 kilos of dirt up the hill.

 I know what you mean, I live in an area famous for it's clay mines used to produce bricks. The worst about the clay mud is the fact that it's absolutely not porous so one heavy rain shower means shitty clay mud conditions for at least 2 weeks.

 Love it. I got out in similar condition yesterday. Absolutely no grip, but so much fun drifting every corner, going off jumps sideways, aiming miles ahead for the tiniest bit of grip to slow you down.

 @simonusedtoskate: Council have destroyed all the trails - made a complete mess of the woods as well. Diggers went in on Monday.
