After a 10 year gap I’ve started getting back into my riding again. I popped over to the Mini DH race in the Forest of Dean, partly to take pictures but partly to scope the race out as I might enter the last race next month. Two of my senses were given a jolt by the smell of pine trees and the sound of freehubs clicking as riders push their bikes up. Cold, muddy, dark and dingy. Pretty much sums up DH racing in the UK! Full set of pics here.
