This Is My Way: Abigale's Story

Barnsley born Abigale started riding at the age of six and has become someone to watch in the future of the sport. At only 20 years old Abi has already started racking up a number of impressive achievements. She placed 2nd at the under 21’s Enduro World Series in 2017 and 2018. She won the under-21’s championship at the 2018 PMBA and the Steel City Downhill in both 2016 and 2017. Since then the list of achievements has only grown.

Abi makes time for training around her studies at Sheffield Hallam University demonstrating her passion and commitment to the sport. Only when you’re stood inches away, can you appreciate the sheer speed and courage it takes to tear down the track.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
