Hardtail Vs Full Suspension | Cross Country Mountain Bike Shootout

When it comes to World Cup level Cross Country racers, travelling to a venue with 2 bikes is not uncommon. That way the racer can decide on the day, which they feel more comfortable riding on the course in hand. Neil takes a look at how the course dictates this choice and which he would choose on his own very varied local loop.

Neil goes head to head on a course he's super familiar with. Will the full sus bike make enough time on the rough stuff to make up for it's extra weight on the climbs and slightly less efficient pedalling? Let's find out...

The Cairns event of the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup brought together top mountain bikers from around the world for a muddy eliminator match. Riders were faced with big rocks, thick roots, and steep terrain along with a series of step-downs and drops which demanded some seriously technical riding.

World Cup XC is no joke | Mountain Biking Dalby Forest

For my first ever Patreon meet-up in the UK we hit up Dalby Forest. I was really surprised how long this loop got and how many awesome little bits and pieces it had for us.

I had no idea that the World Cup XC course was so legit. Serious respect to those dudes!

XC Race Bike Vs Trail Hardtail | Which Is The Better Mountain Bike?

A Stallion vs a Donkey. A Supercar against an SUV. Neil and Blake compare their favourite hardtails. Both bikes might have a solid rear end, but that's where the similarities end...

Neil's on a top of the range Canyon Exceed CF SLX, an all out cross country racing machine. It's got steep head angles and short travel. It's light. It's fast. How does it compare?

Blake's riding the Nukeproof Scout, an aluminium do it all trail bike. With wider tyres, a dropper seatpost and aggressive geometry. It might be heavier, but there is very little that this can't do.

Setting up a Cross Country Bike is vital to avoid aches and pains. Cross Country bikes tend to be less forgiving with less suspension and smaller tyres, so having your bike set up correctly allows the forces of the ground to be absorbed by the body and puts the rider in the best position for pedalling.

The 2018 Edition of 4 Stage MTB Lanzarote

4 Stage Mountain Bike Race on 4 days where amateur and elite riders challenge themselves on varied terrain of tarmac roads, sand, lava fields and dirt track routes in the north of Lanzarote.

Course Description

90% of the course is off road, covering sand, lava fields and dirt tracks in the north of the island.

The Time Trial stage starts from Caleta de Famara going up to Las Nieves (approx. 25 K) with 500 meters of climbing.

The hardest race ‘XL’ leads the riders from Club La Santa towards Teguise, continuing to the bottom of the mountain close to the water dam, then up to the windmills (more than 10K climb).

The return journey takes participants through Teguise and on to Club La Santa.


Participants in the Cadets division must compete in half of the course on the longest races (stages 2 & 4)
