T-Mo Team Rider - Jayden RandellThe season is well underway and I’ve raced the first three rounds of the British National Enduro Series (BEMBA/BNES) and the first round of the European Continental Series in Spain. All new for this year is the British National Enduro Series which holds six independently run Enduro events around the country. Each Enduro race has a practice day on the Saturday and racing on the Sunday. It ranges from 4 to 8 stages and an average of 60km to 100km of riding over the weekend. The winner is the person who has the fastest overall time in their category. 150 points for first, 125 for second and 110 for third, and they cascade to lower numbers the further you are down the field. Stages are predominantly downhill and on varying terrain. Your best five rounds out of the six count towards the overall at the end of the season. So, round one at Afan on the 14th April couldn’t have gone any better as I took the win after 5 rocky, loose and physical stages. Next up was the first round of the European Continental Series in Salines Spain on the 28th April. This was my first experience of racing abroad. This trip wasn’t so much about results, but gaining experience in different terrain and conditions. Once back from Spain, It was straight into Round 2 of the British National Enduro Series at Graythwaite on the 5th May. 7 stages and a third place for me at the end of a long weekend battling the Norths finest roots and techy trails! Skip forward a few weeks and I’m back racing at the third round of the British National Enduro Series at Minehead on the 26th May. This was the first time heading South this year and we were fortunate that it was a dry weekend, which meant the trails could show off their loamy goodness which is a favourite for all the riders! I took the second step on the box, which means after the first three rounds I’m leading the series with 385 points. But it’s far from over and it’s tight at the top. I plan to drop the next round in Scotland due to GCSE’s, but I’ll be at the Malvern’s Classic from the 14th to the 16thJune, which I will be racing the Enduro and Dual Slalom events. It should be a great weekend and a perfect way to celebrate the end of my exams! Want to keep up with everything Jayden is up to?

Lightweight Custom Cycle ClothingJust like a spell of hot weather shouldn’t make your intentions of a ride questionable, neither should the fresh chill of a spring morning – with the right precautions you’ll be just grand. After all, the Easter holidays are a golden opportunity for cyclists. It allows for some warmer weather training, loads of sunny miles to put behind us and creates buzz of excitement in time for the British Summer months officially beginning. The biggest posed topic though, isn’t where to go – it’s what to wear? The in-between months are tricky, with light showers still existing, sunny spells one minute and chilly starts most mornings. Spring requires some key pieces of lightweight training clothing and a little experience to know how to best approach – and that’s where we're on hand to help and advise: Caps: These are an underrated accessory for sure! They actually keep so much heat inside of you – a great benefit of a cap is once you warm up, it’s functional and lightweight enough to shove in your back pocket. Tip to consider when wearing one under your helmet – point it up! It’ll avoid a sore neck from peering up to see ahead. Jerseys: It’s getting warm enough to ditch the heavy weight, fleece lined Windcheeta and swap it for a long sleeve road cycling jersey; our jerseys feature a high performance 140gsm multi dry technical fabric. They’re produced using advanced fit technology to provide the most comfortable riding experience. Jackets: Alternatively we can offer both Gilets and a Windcheeta Lite option. Our sleeveless jerseys A.K.A - Gilets are made from high quality Windtex® fabric – making it windproof, waterproof and breathable. The standard Gilet is manufactured with a lightweight mesh rear panel, but we do give the option to alter this for a Solid Windtex® rear panel instead. Our Windcheeta Lite is hugely popular at this time of the year; providing the optimal fit for wet or that little bit colder weather riding. It consists of a 3 layer Windtex® fabric which protects from the wind and rain whilst maintaining breathability. You can design a custom long sleeve cycling jacket here. Arm & Leg Warmers: The general rule of thumb is to protect your core extremities, right? If they’re protected you’ll be riding in comfort. Warmers are a cooshtie piece of kit! Don’t jump the gun on this one – save bare legs for the later spring months and double up with shorts and warmers to ease yourself in. Arm warmers aren't a necessity this moment s your probably wearing a long sleeve, but it's something you should start sourcing for around about now too – as your long sleeve jersey will be taking a back seat for the season. Snoods: These are genius. I can’t keep up with how many ways there are to use a one?! Sweat band, head band, hair tie – the list goes on and on. It’s a great piece of kit to have handy; bridging the gap and protecting you from the chill. If you've got an event or team/charity ride scheduled this season, our custom service is the best place to buy your event top. There's no minimum order required, free fabric sample service and an unbeatable turnaround time of just 2 weeks from order approval – that’s the fastest delivery in the UK and European market!

'Cock up your Beaver'... Did you read that twice? I bet you did! Bute Brew Co are the very proud brewers of this unique beer. For those who aren't so familiar with Scottish history - Robert 'Rabbie' Burns is the nations favourite poet, who by no surprise did actually write a song named 'Cock up your Beaver'. He's known to have been a naturalist, a keen social observer and 'a bit of a player' - all round good guy, really... I'm sure! Tempest Brew Co (also available in enduro style). This story visits a few places around the world; beginning in New Zealand where two friends (Gavin and Annika) had a 'wow, here we go' moment. After sourcing all the kit and developing a recipe, the first ale - Long White Cloud was brewed. Fast forward a little while later, they set up shop in Kelso selling food and drink in their own little gasropub - but that wasn't enough, Gavin wanted their beer to have it's own identity; now known as Tempest Brewing Co. Black Isle Brewery is located just north of Inverness. Discovered almost 20 years ago by David Gladwin, a beer lover with a distinctive taste for mother nature. Every recipe uses barley and hops from completely organic farms - absolutely no use of destructive chemicals here. Famous for it's own functioning organic farm, growing barley across 125 acres of land and that's not the half of it! They also have 200 wee black sheep grazing amongst it all and one big cow who produces the milk for staff and visitors caffeine needs. They also have their own veggie patch! So you can replenish all bodily fluids and have a munch without even feeling bad! If you fancy a pedal as well, you can try the Blondes and Happy Chappies Route (approx. 1.5-3 hours long) After meeting Chris and Emily from EBF at a recent Sales and Marketing conference, we had an instant connection - beer of course! The Edinburgh based factory is owner to the Paolozzi lager; brewed with 100% barley malt and a brewing lifetime of 6 weeks, the Munich style lager beer has a perfect bitter sweet balance. Replenish carbohydrates after a long ride and don't forget to purchase your own here, right here Right before this years le Tour de France, Brighton Bier approached us with an appealing idea for us both. They were hosting their own Grand Tour brewery event and wanted their own cycle kit to launch the tour event with - and here it is! Pretty damn awesome if we do say so ourselves... Brighton Bier's; international award winning brewery is a mere stone’s throw from the beach, a short ride from the South Downs and close to the finish of the iconic London 2 Brighton bike ride. Did you know - I bet you didn't:
- The only other beverages consumed worldwide, more than beer are water and tea!
- There was once a 'Great Beer Flood' - I kid you not! London 1814 (Google it), people actually drowned.
- The Czechs EACH DRINK over 40 gallons of beer a year... No wonder they're the beer capital of the world.
- Here's one for your wife - beer is good for you apparently, because it has silicon which increases calcium and prevents bone density.
- And guess what... It was al started by women! You're welcome :)
