2017 Fort William World Cup Pit Randoms.

The sun is out and the pits are crawling with fans just waiting to see who’ll be fastest down the hill here at Nevis Range.

Here’s Pete’s pick of what’s on show here under the watchful eye of Aonach Mor.

Juliana have their all-new Strega on show along with the Nomad. Click the photo to check out Rosie’s impressions of the new 170mm carbon weapon.
The Nomad 4 is the Strega but with different colours, sizing and shock tune, and without the witch-related launch video. Not seen it yet? Click the photo for more.
ISON had their Identiti Mettle on show for all to see and Mr. Michael Bonney has been spotted, the man who had a hand in bringing the project to fruition.
Leatt are renowned for their protection and this DBX 5.0 V12 composite lid looks just the business!
Conti Tyres’ rider Shaun Richards flying the Ddraig Goch flag here in Scotland.
Have you been to the Continental stand and had a shot at the Tyre Change Challenge? 1:22 and 1:25 for Pete and Jamie respectively. Jamie mid change here.
The fans at Fort William are the best! The Big Man, Steve Peat, getting the holy treatment from Loic Bruni’s disciples.
If you own a beard and like to keep it in good fettle, go see the guys at Braw Beard Oils. Not only do they sponsor Brook MacDonald, but they have new sandalwood combs among many other things.
Let’s hope the Bergamont boys don’t come a cropper in the sloppy woods with tyre clearance like that! The difference between a winter of testing and wedging big hoops into production bikes.
When not servicing suspension to us mortals, Taj at Flotec tunes the suspension of the stars. Some custom rear shock, bar-mount lever trickery to get the most of the X2 coil shock on course.
The jazzy-titled PA03A pedals from HT are brand spankers, coming in at £34.99 for glass reinforced nylon pedal with cro-mo axle, fully replaceable and serviceable and 9 colours on offer. More excellent value flats to choose from!
