I ride and race Dh as well as trail riding, I am not a keyboard warrior and ride master, I am current Scottish vets Dh champion and have done my time to make educated comments based on experience. I train hard for racing.

Video: Danny Hart Previews the 2020 Lousa World Cup Downhill Track
Hardline is like a progression of old tracks from back in the day, its not really a race track as such for 2018/2019. Its great to have a showcase of what is possible, see the top guys struggle on the rocky sections as they are not flow sections and also see some top guys pull out, but people then get injured and watching someone go flat out at MSA is far better than someone nadger down bits of hardline. Its all riding in the end of the day, there should be 1 super tech Dh race in the calendar though I think. Like Hardline, something that us normal people couldnt ride.

@Wheelersmtbholidays: Is it similar to Andorra, I hope not as that is all about the pedal and some tight ledges.

The track actually looks mint, people are holding on to a view of what Dh once was when it was raw, gnarly, rocky, lack of flow and berms. Personally where it is now looks much better for the viewer and is more fun for the rider.

Looks too smooth and too many berms for Enduro, once you cut your teeth in Dh you can move up to Enduro these days :)

Must Watch: Chris Akrigg's 'From There to Here' Full-Length Film
The best video of the year by far, amazing rider with an amazing story. Raced Dh against Chris when he was on his trails bike (not trials :) ), he smoked us, he would have won national champs in masters if it wasn't for a little crash at the bottom of the track.

The New Santa Cruz V10 and Reserve 29" DH Wheels Are Official
I love my V10, it just rides naturally. I would love to try one of these bigger wheeled ones, but the old 26" full carbon one is so good I just justify the cost to change yet.

@Matt115lamb: Slight clue in the wording for next year Next year is looking good for the NDH, with a great variation of races, from TTs to enduros and a level entry funduro. Xxx

Video: Tackling Sydney's Streets on a Trials Bike
Amazing video. Shame about the music on my phone, like a chalk board.

Race Report: Northern Downhills Final Race of 2018
Northern Downhill Race report and not 1 photo of a Downhill bike... I dont think that Northern Enduro Race report has the same appeal... not a bad thing as it shows how far trail bikes have come over the last few years. I miss racing, its just too expensive these days :(
