Sunday should be spot on at Rogate Downhill
See some of you there 👍🏻
That's it, that's all folks, we are officially SOLD OUT!
There will be NO on the day entries!
if you haven't entered the Rogate Downhill race yet, then check out this track preview and get involved.
I'm super happy with the track and hope that all of y'all will enjoy it too!
Vid 2 comes from long-standing committee member Sam, at Rocksteady MTB Skills.
We think you are going to love this track, so get yourselves entered and enjoy it!
Race day is Sunday October 9th 2016.
NOTE: This bottom of the race track crosses over several other tracks and WILL NOT be open until race day. Anyone found to be riding across lines or outside of marked trails will be immediately disqualified from the race without refund, and will be banned from the site. Apart from a couple of small connecting parts, the entirety of the track is rideable on normal days.
Play fair or don't play at all!
Summer's gone; holidays are over; injuries are fixed. This week I've had the pleasure of seeing two of my favourite returning faces - Zachy and Ellen.
Fresh off the back of a killer 3 weeks in Whistler, Zachy is full of confidence and pushing on nicely.

It's great to see Ellen back on a bike after a nasty injury at the start of the summer. She'll be back up to pace in no time.
Huge healing vibes go out to Ellen Flewitt and Mason - two People I have enjoyed working with greatly, who have both given themselves some new war wounds.
Ellen unfortunately dislocated her shoulder whilst warming up before our session yesterday afternoon.
She's been getting quicker and quicker every week, and is gutted to be missing the National Champs next weekend. She'll be back in no time, and is strong enough to put it behind her.
All the best Chuckles 💪🏻
Mason unfortunately had a whoopsie during practice for this weekend's Megavalanche; breaking his leg and gaining some new Mechano for his troubles.
Once again, I wish him the speediest of recoveries and hope to see him out and about soon.
Before the rain, there was sunshine.
Ellen Flewitt and I made the most of it, and took her new Saracen Bikes Myst out for a spin at Rogate Downhill. It 's obviously working for her, and her hard work is paying off.
Good luck at the British Downhill Series this weekend lass!
MTB is an all-weather sport; which is a good job, as Juzzy and I had all of the weather during last night's session!
Here you can see just how far he has come in two sessions - the first clip is from our first session (and his first time at Rogate Downhill) and the others are from yesterday.
Speed, technique and confidence have increased immensely, and it really shows.
Great work sir 👍🏻
Hot, humid and overall scorching session down at Stoughton Downhill with Ellen Flewitt Racing tonight.
High speeds and big senders smashed out of the park 🤘🏼
It's been a busy couple of weeks, working with some old faces and good friends.
BDS and Megavalanche prep and confidence boosting have been the tasks at hand, and everyone has ridden it out like a boss!
Best of luck to Ellen at her first British Downhill Series race this weekend, and to Mason for the Megavalanche in July!
Here's Stress Cakes Ellen doing her thang, and the hero-homeboy Andy finding his mojo at Rogate Downhill
It's 'go' day for the QECP Mountain Bike Trail Building Day and Night Enduro, so here's a little video of Rocksteady supported athlete Ellen and I sessioning some the stages on Thursday night.
The trails were running Primo, and the event should be a banger!
Good luck to everyone riding 🚵🏻💨✊🏻

Another strong week for MTB skills; especially when it comes to leaving the ground!
Both Ellen and Juzzy conquered some demons and improved on their techniques and positioning, and left with new goals to achieve.
Juz does need to slow down on his return loops though - I could barely keep up! 👌🏻
Awesome work from the pair of them.
Double 1 nailed.
Double 2 attempted...and nailed first time.
Double 3 is next.
Another top session with a very hard working young lady. Great work Ellen 👍🏻🚵🏻💨
What a banger of an evening coaching with this pocket-rocket at Rogate Downhill!
The snow was a bit of a shock, but that moved on fairly quickly; then it was on to smashing out jumps and turns.
My Rocky Mountain Bicycles UK Altitude doing the 'do' perfectly as ever too 👌🏻

I've had a couple of awesome evening sessions with these two budding pinners this week.
It's so nice to see old habits dying hard, and new ones taking hold. It helps when the sessions are such a laugh too!
Great work team 👌🏻
Yesterday morning myself and this rowdy bunch of 8-10yr olds ignored the rubbish weather and took to the trails for some puddle-smashing fun.
It was the young man on the left's 10th birthday party, and all the boys went home with a smile on their face (and soggy socks!)
Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning 🎂👍🏻
Yesterday evening I met up with a Ellen; a 14 year old with bags of enthusiasm, and heaps of character. Luckily she already has a ton of talent, and is extremely receptive to advice and suggestion.
We will be working together over the coming season, and hope to make some solid progress.
Thanks for a quality evening of shredding!
This is not only the future of ladies MTB, but the future of MTB as a whole; and I am honoured to be a part of it.
Had a great morning out with 9yr old Zachy and Dad (age undisclosed!) Simon.
Both of them took their jumping to a new level and have picked up some skills to set them well on their way to a summer in Whistler! Great work chaps.
I had a great session with this young man at Rogate Downhill yesterday.
Charlie is fairly new to the sport, but certainly knows how to move a bike around.
A whole new trail unlocked, and some wind beneath his wheels left us both with smiles on our faces.
Great work buddy!
Up bright and early for a session with this young man today.
Well done today Zachy, you stomped it!

Hows about this for dedication? Because yesterday's track preview didn't go so well, I got up even earlier this morning to try and improve on it.
So, here we are: One hot lap this morning before work this morning...and by 'hot', I mean tepid...
Go and give me and my bro Tomb Photography a vote over at the Loose Riders Global Alliance page: https://www.facebook.com/looseridersenglandchapter/photos/pcb.389994671195158/389994511195174/?type=1&theater
Another fantastic session at Rogate Downhill with Mason today.
From not being able to get airborne, to hitting a sizeable double within 6 very short riding hours, is a fantastic achievement. Well played that man!
[06/25/15] More fun in the sun today. Cheers for being a good sport and a top gent Lawrence. Keep on practicing and you'll be motoring off road gaps in no time!
Had a great morning session with this fine gentleman today.
Good work Mason, I look forward to next time!
A perfect day for some skills instruction.
Cheers Patrick and Sam for being absolutely perfect clients, and well done for all you achieved.
Actual sunshine, fast running trails and a particularly successful session with Iain today.
I could get used to these sorts of days!
Great work today Iain dude. Keep on working at it and I'll see you on the hill soon =)
[01/21/14] Got a last-minute session with Jeff booked in for Friday, and a further couple set up for Iain in Feb. Let's just hope the weather stays frosty and bright for a little longer than 48hrs!
Good little sesh with Harry and Sam yesterday; tidying up some bike skills and learning a few more.
Good efforts from both on hitting some gaps too.
Great work chaps.
Happy Birthday Joe!
Cake devoured and much chin-wagging done...oh and there was some riding in there somewhere too!
Good day all-round.
Really top morning pushing boundaries with my man Iain this morning. As ever, an absolute pleasure to see someone progressing and enjoying themselves.
Good work lad!
Sick day with Sally and the boys down at Rogate today. Big laughs all round and some serious hurdles jumped.
And off we go to a (less dusty than last time...just) Rogate, with Sal and the boys for a post-Alps debrief and skills review.
Guaranteed to be a chuckle.
This morning was chuckles, thanks Sally! Smiles for miles and dust up the nostrils...hopefully some lessons learnt too.
Bring on round 2 in August =)
