MTB Pro Ben Moore – Grasse Urban Downhill

We caught up with MTB Pro downhill rider BEN MOORE after the last urban of the year in Grasse, France “It had been a pretty epic year with several international wins starting off in Germany back in January. It really was the ‘perfect’ start to the year! The season certainly had highs and lows (as it always does in any sport!). I broke my hand whilst filming in June which was a set back but my eyes were set on Grasse as it was my favourite race of the year,... Read More

With fans crossing fingers that they won’t be seeing a whitewash this year, we wish England the best of luck as they take to the Adelaide Oval on... Read More

We caught up with her on the journey back to compete this weekend, with the 2019 Cyclocross World Championship firmly in mind….   Looking back on the last couple of seasons, I like to think I can count myself as one of the tough ones.

LUCY GOSSAGE – WINNING INSIGHT ON IRONMAN WALES 2017

Whilst on a bike ride on... Read More
