Hey folks. I hope you are all doing well and surviving the beginning of the long UK winter! It felt like time to provide you with another channel update.

Firstly, if you follow my socials, you'll know that I was the proud winner of 'Vlogger of the Year' award at DMBinS Scottish MTB awards. It was a really cool event and a lot of fun was had - I had a headache the next day that confirmed the levels of fun. Of course, I want to say thanks to all of you. The support that you have given has really helped me up the standards of the edits - the drone is worth it's weight in gold!

Outside of this, I've been on a bit of a fitness mission of late. A CrossFit gym opened in Innerleithen and I decided to venture there. I was pretty apprehensive to be fair as I had initially presumed it to be some sort of tractor tyre pushing cult... Thankfully though, it is very much about getting stronger and healthier and I can see already that it should help me out on the bike.

The winter months get really hard to film in. Wet trails, low light and low motivation take a grip. I am hoping to keep a consistent schedule going but I may have to reduce the number of vlogs and put out a few more review type videos. I know last year I tried to do weekly vlogs and I ended up totally miserable. I am sure no one wants to watch a depressed vlogger in action!

Anyways, I will leave the update here. As always, feel free to message me if you have any questions. Hope you are all well folks and keep up that winter riding. Hopefully see you on the trails at some point.
