BikeLive took advantage of one of the only dry days this week for some serious bike testing. Over 150 people braved a gusty February day to test a range of bikes from 15 manufacturers.
The guided E-MTB rides were also hugely popular with Dave Atkinson leading the way through very muddy terrain. There was only 1 mishap, when a stick flew up into a rear mech, thus creating the first ever 'single speed fat e-bike'!
All that testing worked up quite an appetite, so the gourmet burger van and mobile pizza oven were busy all day.
The only casualty of the day was a serious one. My poor socks were trashed by the mud of the E-MTB ride!
We'll be back with BikeLive in Cannock and Dalby Forest later in the year.
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. Liam spends his time plodding his way through cyclocross races, very busy not winning. As an advocate for perfectly clean chains, he can be found cleaning his bike instead of training. A shop mechanic, Liam has many helpful skills, such as being able to identify 'cross tubs by the tread pattern alone. If you bump into him, he'll probably be eating.
