Wee Ben

First up an email from Ben:

Thats it all done. Finally got some stuff on the blogspot page. All of my canada 2004 photo’s, check it out and leave a comment if you want! www.westcoast100.blogspot.com

Looks great to me. Must admit I’m tempted, but I would definitely need some peer pressure to commit to some of that riding though! My efforts at the Ewok Village at Glentress have not convinced me of my North Shoreness.

It’s quite clear that Ned Overend doesn’t know how to retire, which for mountain biking is a good thing because he’s a bit of a character. Inaugural World Champion, he quit in 1996 at the age of 41, then joined the fledgling XTERRA off-road triathlon circuit and scooped up a couple of their World Championships before retiring again in 2003. Steve Medcroft catches up with Ned to talk about life at 50 for Cyclingnews.

Another Mountain Bike legend Keith Bontrager has had a bit of a shocker in his attempt to conquer the seven day long TransAlp Challenge. Read Keith’s accounts here, unfortunately it didn’t all go quite to plan…

Now Stateside the Leadville 100 has just taken place and for the first time in a long time I’ve been over to check out what Big Jonny has to say about things. thought he’d be back for revenge and sure enough revenge was involved, but the Gringos got the better of Big Juan’s bodily defences and almost finished him off. He has an epic write up of his race over at DC and the Gnome has more over at Onespeeder
