Hi I'm Chris Anderson

32 years old...

Rides = Pixie blue Cove Hustler
Custard Cotic Soul

Favorite post ride snack is the lasagne and spicy potatoes served in the Drop-off Cafe over Afan way..

Favorite places to ride are: Cwm Carn, Black Mountains, Brechfa, Afan's The Wall and Wentwood.

I've been riding for about 17 years off and on but returned biking propper about 3 years ago when I gave up rock climbing 'cos I couldn't afford the life insurance :wink: I try and get out most weekends, usually for a wiz around Cwm Carn, but you may see me pulling a trailer with my kids in it around some of the Wentwood trails...I've started them on a diet of Welsh mud nice and early!
:lol:

Hi all
I'm Darren
I'm 36
I ride a custom build 05 Norco A-line.
I love to ride Cwmcarn, Aston hill and anywhere with big hills and an easy push up!
Can't beat a pint of Stella and a kebab after riding (you see, I'm on a diet!)
I'm a Welsh exile from Neath, now living in Reading and really wondering if I should come home!
Been riding DH seriously for about a year, my first race will be this year. I marshaled the Wentwood trophy last weekend to get a bit of an insight into racing and just to show willing. Loved it!! can't wait for my first race.

Don't laugh! my nearest DH track is 40 miles away!!
I marshaled the road gap all day. Good spot, got to see many a good jump.
I'll definitely be up to ride Wentwood soon, hopefully by the end of this month. Are you guys up there most weekends? would be good to have others to ride with.

Greetings Folks,

The name is John and I am 41.

Giant Faith 1.

As for music choice, mainly good old rock, but I also enjoy music that is just made for fun eg. Tenacious D, Bowling For Soup and The Blood Hound Gang.

Nothing beats a nice juicy steak and an ice cold beer.

I am new to the DH/MTB scene, but I used to race motocross many years ago back in South Africa. I am normally in the Cradiff are over weekends and I am looking forward to tackling the runs in South Wales. Any recommendations for tracks and runs will be welcomed.
