For those entered into this year's King of the Hill, here's a wee reminder of last year's downhill sections to wet your appetite. Here's hoping for another lovely day of sunshine!

yeh broon trout is difficult, last year was dry as a bone so made it easier. I have from a reliable source that there's plenty of 'natural' trails in this years event. So if it's wet that basically means slimey rooty loveliness!

I had an 800mm bar a while ago. Didn't stay that way for long though. Got sick of clipping trees!

One thing i hate about headcams is how they make fast and technical terrain look slow and flat.

Really looking forward to this now 🙂 and yea my 750mm bars might be a struggle at speed.

I think that's all wide angled cams in general. I'm always having to explain to folk 'it was steeper / harder than it looked!'

The best view I've found to show the terrain is a rear facing position on the seat post or swingarm.

Still. Better than nothing...

I had a Contour roam for a lot of filming for a trip to Basque Country last year and i couldn't believe that all the really technical and fast sections looked like they had been filmed in a park.

But they are great vids Chris and give some insight into how much pedaling will be involved. Which will cheer my mate up no end :shifty:

I'll be happy as long as there are no skinnies or woodwork. They're my downfall on Broon Troot.

Stumbled across a track that is pretty steep the other day. Never ridden Brown Trout but this track and an average gradient of -30% - ace loamy rooty steep fun. Looking forward to it now!

Sounds like there'll be a mix of familiar fast easy trails and testing muddy rooty bits combined with some lung busting pedally bits. Can't wait now 🙂

Me too! I have only managed it down once with 'no dabs, no bails'. I usually get caught on the woodwork - or a fallen rider in front of me.
