 Amazing video! It was super fun to watch with great music, the landscapes and trails are beautiful. While Isla's charisma and attitude just make it whole, also extra points for the rain. Great job!

 I've wanted to get back to Scotland with a bike. Reminder of the appreciation one has for folks who have to ride in adventurous conditions if they want to ride. I think "fair weather rider" is a foreign concept across the wee pond.

 It's been a heck of a winter for riding bikes. Half a metre of snow on the ground for weeks then endless rain, snow melt and 40mph winds, and trails that are basically a black line through a swamp. And yet every ride I've been on there's been someone else out enjoying themselves.

 Love watching Isla race XC, I believe it was at Leogang there was a super long mud hill, she slid out but was smiling the whole way. She’s the type of racer that makes you remember why you love riding.

 The brakes squeaking goes well with the music.
