see you in 6 months

lance down and out


Well they never 100% went away, Back when i ran bsx-world and was MCing the MBUK biker-x events etc in the early 2000's Revell bikes were the bomb, Since then the mtb brand has took a step back as Anthony built up his bmx brand stolen, Now Revell bikes are back and now with some solid completes in 24" and 26". Distros the key for a bike brand and they have that all sorted thanks to split and customers have it @ there fingers now that you can get hold of both its complete bikes and parts at CRC

Also keep an eye on the website for a few more updates than its old site..

moorland shot

quick shot from my dartmoor ride a few weeks back of me blazing a moorland trail


Ye thats right, the dmr was a bit of a limo for riding park and trails, and with a want to get back in to riding some trails and with an indoor park to session this winter it was time to build a new bike, look for a bike check proper on the Vandal blog next week, till then check the first shot of the death squad rig.

OP headcam

GOPRO filmed by me following OP local and pinkbike mod andy (AKA almostwise ).

First time i have been to OP trails, the guys are digging in and building hard, Few phone shots (click to see full size) and a vid off a phone, check how fast the shore section is in to a step up, real good fun with a 20 foot jump just in front of the shore to set up.
Head cam online in the next blog.

things have been going good of late, loads of runs, short xc rides in the week and some cool freeride on the weekends, Two weekends ago i got back to my spot and also hit a new road gap, last weekend the plan was to go ride a new(ish) freeride spot not far from taunton, But that went tits up the night before and i ended up sorting a day riding with vandal clothing young gun Pete and we headed to dartmoor for a very long but fun session over three tors and some dh session near north bovey what i have not done in about a year, it was tech thanks to last weeks rain and fun to ride that natural rock garden dh style stuff, we also headed over to a drop i found a few months ago, We both feel with a little work it should make a nice little photo. So look for that later in the year, This weekend we hope to be heading to the freeride spot just past taunton, After that we should get that small dartmoor drop in the bag and my stunt that i have been working on for the last few weeks should be read to shoot, Then we have a gap/drop to photo so loads to do in the coming weeks/months.. Today we hit up a bit of xc, checked the new haldon xc line what looks real good and also found a cool skinny log ride over a bog and nailed it first time, Got home and chilled and then went and did a run in record time! This winter i hope to hit the park we went with Vandals Jay a few weeks ago so were now building a trail/park 24" that should ride sweeter than the dmr, Look for some shots of that in a week or so.
