 Free Scotland! However...In the independence referendum of September 18, 2014, the majority said they wanted to stay in the United Kingdom. And, so the argument follows, if Scotland wants to be part of the UK, Scotland must accept the UK's decision to leave the European Union.

 @endlessblockades: ????? Aye are you taking the piss?? Wtf has that got to do with bikes? The vote in 2014 was a vote under the understanding that the UK would stay in EU. So no it does not mean we have to abide by the referendum (in 2016) Anyways, haven’t you ‘murikans got enough of your own shit to worry about?? Like forcing 11year old rape victims, whom become pregnant, to actually give birth, sick f*cks!
Keep politics off of this website

 @Hollyforry58: Easy there homie. I'm of Scottish decent and happened to be reading something about the referendum and cut n pasted it so PB could make a CDN penny off the activity on the site so will continue to provide us access to MTB content. There are some sik political fvx here in the States for sure but the abortion thing is just a ploy to get Roe V. Wade in front of the supreme court. It will be shot down.

 The track was running prime this weekend. Shame they didn't leave it like it was a few weeks back when I was rougher. Smile

Healing vibes to everyone who crashed and didn't get back up. The rocks take no prisoners down at Fort William.

Gee took the win today with a 4.35 0.1 ehead of Danny and Greg W in 3rd. All under 4.40.
It's so impressive how these guys go that quick down there, personally though I like to enjoy the scenery at a more sedate pace. #26aintdead

 Did this on my gravel bike once, coz, you know, they are pretty much as capable as a mountain bike.

 Anyone remember clutch-less derailleurs?

Now all you hear is tires and rims quietly moaning in agony.

 Rough... nah, track was running mint. They did a fair bit or repair work in the last couple of weeks to smooth it out then lots of riders hitting the same lines either creates holes or smooth lines. Quite a few smooth lines. I loved pumping through all the 29er holes on my 26er haha.
