Malverns 2018

Baybutt gives us the roundup of the Malverns Classic 2018: Malverns! Who remembers it from the first time round? The glossy pages of MBUK filled with fishing hats and sunshine are my only references, but when we heard that dual was back on the menu for 2018, we couldn’t not go.

Arriving on the Thursday with Camus & Sam, we got the stand set up, pitched my tent under dog-crap tree and went to see who else was here.

Friday brought the start of the show officially. We spent the day setting up people on demo bikes and sending them off round the racetracks. As there were no big features on the courses, when the tracks weren’t being used for racing, they were all open to the public. 99% was dry grass but it turned out there was a mega-bog at the bottom of stage 1 - which confused us when bikes were brought back loppy! Dual practice & quali opened but I only managed 3 practice laps before qualis. An afternoon session would have been nice (or some extra skills) and I might not have thrown away my run on a flat corner. Racing isn’t for me. Luckily Sam knew how to help and put a beer in my hand before even asking me how it went. Top lad. Luckily Camus & Easey made it into the proper race and did us proud. Easey also fell in his run against the Malverns Legend that is Dave Hemming but smoked him in the second race. Not by enough to go through but he’d have deffo made it a few rounds further if he’d stayed upright.

Saturday morning we fitted a mud spike (WTB Warden) to Camus’ BFe and he sent it to 2nd in the Enduro. Big stoke. The day consisted of more demos, more wheelies, more beers. Me, Sam & Mel even managed to get off the stand for a spin up the hill which was lovely till Mel fell in the aforementioned bog.

After the 4x (WILD btw) we grabbed the Development squad and headed back up to the jump for an impromptu photo session. The sight of those two bossing the gap inspired a raft of other kids who wanted a go and very soon the hill was alive again with whoops & cheers as everyone got into the swing of things. I love working with these two - people like this bring the stoke and the rest is easy.

Sunday saw a hungover Camus wrestle with finding 5 seconds in the downhill after his first run. Luckily Jordan of BikeTrack fame was on hand for some last minute coaching and pep talks. Somehow the fog lifted and Dave brought it home to 2nd in hardtail class. Wes got a 3rd in his class and Will stood on the top step in his. Unreal results.

Malverns 2018

If you were one of the many many people who stopped by the stand for a chat, sticker or a demo then I hope you had as good a time as we did. It’s nice to see the old spirit is still there after 20 years.

A post shared by James Swinden (swinny) (@jpswinny) on

Our amazing team riders Chay and Swinny are enjoying the dusty trails and race prepping. Here's a life update from Swinny...

To say it's June already is pretty crazy! The year has flown by for good and bad reasons.

In mid March, a week after my 31st Birthday I fell into an illness that lasted a good couple of months. A combination of things caused this sudden illness, resulting in a drop in health... I won't bore you with the details! But in this time I lost a good 7kgs in body weights and was generally run down, and this is usually the time of year where I'm racking up the kilometers up on the bike. Whether that's road, hardtail or full bouncer it's the time of year I really enjoy getting out on the bike as the daylight hours improve, and it proves so beneficial to get out now to get an amazing summer's riding. Usually, as the weather improves, so does the riding fitness. Not this year, though.

I missed the first race of the year, Vallelujah. I had no energy or drive to get back on the bike. My workplace have been incredibly supportive throughout the whole saga and I can't thank them enough for helping me through it all. Enough of the sob story, let's move on...

I've started up my YouTube channel again, search for James Swinden! Hit follow. I'll be trying to keep an online diary of my year as it unfolds. Unfortunately I lost my camera at Steel City DH! No one was kind enough to hand it in so whoever has it, karma will get you! Clearly mine with the content on it.

It's aiming to be another shameless vlog. I enjoy watching vlogs, I get hooked! (Watch Will Smith's, it's great). As I lost my camera, I've been unable to finish off a few of these, however, there are a few coming so stay tuned as there's stuff like a return to DH Racing and carrying a big ass log in the snow up a hill.

So what else is new... I've joined a gym for the first time in my life... After illness and realising I needed to get back to fitness and build my strength back up, I joined a lad from work who mentioned there's this gym around the corner from work when I fancy a quick workout. There's some big buggers there so it's exciting to train. I'm usually reluctant to train with others, but I'm enjoying this.

So, I minced around the gym for a bit, trying out the machines and free weights then got chatting to the owner, Jon Clark, who I instantly clicked with. We chatted bikes and training and he put together a program for me. I'm now a proud member of Evolution Gym in Halfway, Sheffield. Cheers Jon!

As I said earlier, racking up the KMs are important this time of year as there's a huge number of races coming up. Nationals up at Tweedlove, EWS in Italy and all the others in between. Not really wanting to pedal isn't ideal training conditions, but with the sun shining it's been easier to get back into the swing of things. Plus the dog needs to stretch his legs too!

Cane Creek are supporting the team with suspension this year, so I've spent a bit of time getting to know how it works and understanding it. I've never been a fan of air shocks for some reason, but thankfully Cane Creeks Air IL has been a breath of fresh air. Supple yet supportive, it's been so easy to set up using Cane Creek's Dialled app. A series of simple questions, answered by your own feel on the trail ten a suggestion on what corrections to make...simple but proved very effective.

I've been toying between the Air Inline and the Coil Inline and love both for different reasons. I think depending on the trail I could tailor each shock to suit, but I would be happy to run either regardless of the terrain. So a huge thanks to Cane Creek for their support this year! Really enjoying using your suspension.

A huge thanks to our continued support from our sponsors, it's so important to us. Cheers to all, here's to a great year getting fitter, riding and racing.

04/06/2018 - Off Road CC Test Rocket

SHARE : F t url

Rachael's Rocket

"We took a very first look at the new Cotic Rocket back in February 2018 and right away we knew we had to get one in for test. Its longer and slacker than previous iterations, sporting Cotic's Longshot Geometry and a suitable low seat tube height too. Our Rachael thought it'd be an ideal long-termer, allowing her to get the reach she'd like without a lofty seat tube. We introduced the bike a couple of weeks ago when Rachael covered it in Invisiframe prior to building.

Longshot geometry Cotic says "brings a new balance, speed and capability to the Rocket". Frames have been made longer to be matched with a short stem (30mm-50mm) which combined with a slacker head angle should create a stable bike that's a hoot when things get steep and rough. It's nice to see 437mm chainstays in play too helping balance out the front to rear weight balance as the frame gets longer..."
