Kielder Chiller 2019

I can’t say with much certainty when I last took part in a 24 hour race as a member of a team of 4. I’ve dabbled in pairs racing from time to time but the vast majority of endurance racing … Continue reading →

Ragley 2019 range announced

Blue Pig   It’s 10 years since the Blue Pig first hit the trails. The latest iteration is a very different beast to the original, but its intentions haven’t changed. It’s happiest when ridden hard, roosting turns and hammering the descents. From tearing up your local singletrack, exploratory adventures in the wild, racing enduro or […]

Strathpuffer 2019 – Apparently hell CAN freeze over.

It doesn’t matter what the weather forecast says, or what people who are in Strathpeffer for days before the race say – the fact is, nobody can predict the weather at the Strathpuffer. You just have to think how you’re … Continu…

Here comes the Strathpuffer again

Team JMC – It’s not me!

It seems that lots of people who I meet (and presumably lots of people who I haven’t met) think that ‘Team JMC’ is so-called because it’s named after me. Jason Miles Cycling, or possibly Jason Miles C….with a naughty word … Continue reading &#859…

10@ Kirroughtree 2018

Getting to the start of 10@Kirroughtree race this year for me was super-easy, in fact I can’t remember ever taking part in a race before where halfway around the course I could see my own house. I was even able … Continue reading →

Graft

Blogging a bit more often than I have been doing would seem to be the right thing to do, now I’ve kind of dragged my backside out of my endurance racing sabbatical. Perhaps someone out there is still interested in … Continue reading →

Glentress 7 and the Blur CC

My journey back towards race fitness continued this weekend at the Glentress 7. Unsurprisingly it’s a 7 hour race on a lapped course just up the road at the brilliant Glentress forest. There was little chance of me making an … Continue read…
