Welcome to Behind the attitude
With our rad team of athletes, we thought it was about time you got to know a bit more about them and what makes them and their bikes tick.
We'll be featuring a host of different riders throughout the next few months and each of the episodes will sit on this page.
Episode #1: Meg Whyte
Episode #2: Elin Berry
Hailing from the UK MTB haven of Wales, up and coming Youth rider Elin Berry riding on Team Wideopenmag gives us an insiders look at the world of Junior racing. Expect grand plans, inspiring thoughts and some eye opening facts on Junior racing.
When I first started racing (2017) I had to race in the open's women category as there were so few women. A few more Junior girls came on the scene which meant there were more than 3 of us so we could have our own Junior Female category, of which the age range is 13-18yrs.
"I'd really love to see the sport get more competitive for women, rather than just giving it a go"
Katy is great, I've known her for a few years and she's always supported me, she's super helpful with advice on racing and riding. When I'm riding new tracks, I generally have a rule that if I roll in 3 times and don't ride it I'll come back another day- this seems to work for me.
Episode #3: Natasha Bradley
BRINGING THE STOKE...ALWAYS
For Natasha, like many of us, riding bikes is all about the stoke.
But since she first turned a crank, she's been racking up the titles racing bar to bar. After success in BMX, she moved to 4X, winning a silver medal at the 4X World Championships (Twice) and Multiple British series and national championships. For 2021, she's pushing herself further out her comfort zone, racing the British Downhill Series and select enduro races.
