SCDH 2019

Steel City DH, better than Christmas? The biggest little race sees hundreds of racers take to the popular hillside at Grenoside, Sheffield. Cotic has the same spot every year by the infamous bombhole, and we soak up the buzzing atmosphere, as well as the great coffee and beer on offer.

The Cotic Factory Race Team were all racing this year, it was great to have everyone in the same place, everyone was feeling good and keen to get out there and race. Wes Fife (racing 17-18 boys) had a brilliant practice and race runs, couple of mistakes on the corners didn't bother him, he really enjoyed the race - and that's what matters! He finished in 5th, and only a second off the podium.

More close racing for Will Easey racing in Seniors. The crowd was loving his stylish riding, getting plenty of cheers! He finished 4th with a fraction of a second off the podium. Steel City always sees incredibly tight racing!

Swinny AKA Rocketman was flying on his new RocketMAX, finishing 12th in the Pros. In other Rocketman news, Swinny has kicked off his European Continental Series campaign with a really strong 16th overall in Spain the other weekend. The Continental Series are a new set of races from the Enduro World Series where each Continent runs a series of EWS level one day races as a stepping stone from National to International racing. Having won the PMBA Series twice in a row in 16-17, Swinny was looking for the next challenge, but the level at EWS is so high and the races so arduous these days that those took their toll last year. The ECS gives us a chance to put together a whole series, without the massive 4 day race format often used in EWS. This is a great start and we're looking forward to seeing how this works out for the rest of the season. Bets of luck to him, and keep watch on his progress!

Big ups to ambassador and friend A-Line Coaching Gaz, who finished 3rd in Masters. He's loving his new Rocket, and has been working hard to get it set up perfectly for this race, it clearly paid off. Well done Gaz!

HUGE congrats to Team rider Chay Granby who won Vets. You earned that! Amazing result, what a great start to the season. Well done Chay, we're so proud. Thanks everyone that came by the stand and cheered our team on this year, much appreciated. So, that was another 'Better than Christmas', see you next year Steel City.
