Our mate Oliver Coat’s got in touch this morning with a quick repo. Here goes…

The event was excellent.  As you’d expect from Avalanche, I suppose.  

They’re obviously keen on the trails at Kielder, as it’s the second year running that they’ve chosen the Deadwater Trail.  Tracy Moseley quoted as saying “not what I was expecting in Britain, the trails have  a foreign feel to them, the loose material makes the riders think –  not just brakes off”. 

Punctures were the main order of the day –  especially on the ‘Forrest Dive’ black section (named after Scottish  downhiller Gary Forrest who built it), where quite a few riders came  through, running on their rear rims.  Weather was kind.  Loads of sun,  and one very brief, but very heavy hail storm!

I will have a gallery on my site very soon, but so far only  have Saturday’s photos up. Check those out here http://www.olivercoats.co.uk/

Also, maybe worth noting on the website that the next Avalanche Enduro  is at Ae Forest in 2 weeks, for which there are still entries  available –
