A great time was had at the TwentyFour 12 down in Plymouth. The team produce some great results with 7th in the solo male 24hr for Russ Welch on his Rudy 29er, 4th in the Mixed pairs for Rob Williams son also on a Rudy 29er and Jo Hitchens on her custom Travers 650b. I rode the Rudy Fat to 12th place in the solo male 12 hr.
The event was extremely well run and the conditions were perfect. Roll on next year.
Here is a sneak peak of some of the carbon components we have coming out soon. A new version of the "Road Prong" carbon fork along with a new "CX Prong" for all you cyclocross riders. The "CX Prong" will be disc only!

John Moore has just completed his first 1000 miles on his Angus 29 + (Plus) with Rohloff hub and he has sent me this blog outlining the journey.
I would like to point out I did not ask or pay him to write the article.
The review of the Fat Race appeared in the "What Mountain Bike" magazine last month, this month a slightly updated version appeared on Bike Radar with the addition of comment about our new Fat Prong forks. Which will also be reviewed later in the long term test.
Great ride by the team last night in the last round of the Ford Dunton series. It was wet, so reduced the field to only the hardcore riders and those trying to secure overall placings.
A couple of breaks went away during the race with Kateel having ago about mid way through the race but it all came down to the sprint at the end. Colin just need to finish ahead of his rival from Athlon to secure the overall, which he did with 2nd on the night. Ross also secure his 4th overall with 4th on the night. I rolled in in 9thish keeping me in the top 10 overall just pipping Kateel on the line.
Well done everyone, great race and thanks to the support from Philip, Peter and Lesley shouting support from the side of the track in unfavorable conditions and to Ford Cycling Club for putting on a great event. Results are to be confirmed.
The Fat Race set up as a "Monster Cross" bike with trail dog! #monstercross
I think most people are aware that the Tour de France started in the England this year, in fact the first 2 stages were held in Yorkshire. As part of this there was a exhibition held called the "Yorkshire Bicycle Show" and the Fat Race has made it to their Highlights package!
The Monster Fat Bike the Fat Race that completed the UK Coast to Coast challenge (150 miles) in one day!
I took a long off road ride to see the Tour de France stage 3. Its was a great atmosphere. I rode the Fat bike to Chelmsford to generate a bit of interest and it worked!. As soon as I rode into Admirals Park I was stopped and asked for a photo, I said no problem and stood there with the bike...the man asked if I could get out of the picture!
Had so many great chats with people who either had no idea what the Fat Bike was but were curious or people who knew and wanted to chat about it.
