I managed to get over to Edinburgh to check out the finals of this years Red Bull Hill Chasers in Edinburgh and it was bleddy freezing stood up on that hill, but it was super fun to watch! with some incredibly fast riders bleddy ell!… any way heres a video from Charge summarising the event!
Should be good event! A Multi-discipline Uphill sprint race! in Edinburgh.
Check Danny’s latest video for Remington featuring the awesome city of San Francisco. Its beautifully filmed featuring Danny doing what he does best around the city! his bike control is unreal!

My EFG pal Calum was tagged in this rad photo on FB at the Meadow Bank velodrome in Edinburgh, so good! which brings me on to this… a massive congratulations to Sir Chris Hoy with his 6th Olympic gold medal in the keirin track cycling event (Watch Here ») he who started his career at the Meadow bank track.
Looks like another fantastic weekend in the Red Bull Minidrome series 2012, unfortunately I didn’t get to compete at this one! hopefully next time!
Red Bull Mini Drome took the high road this weekend and headed to Scotland for its second outing of 2012 at Edinburgh’s College of Art. Scotland welcomed the return of the world’s smallest velodrome this weekend as 32 of the world’s top fixed gear riders competed to become the Red Bull Mini Drome Champion at Edinburgh’s College of Art. The event also introduced a female final, a first in Red Bull Mini Drome’s history!
The finals culminated with a tense round between Toms Alsberg from Latvia and local boy Martin Bletchley. Alsberg finished in first place and was crowned champion for the fourth time with Martin Betchley in second place and Ricky Crompton from Manchester in third
A slick edit from the guys at Eyesdown Films from the first Redbull Minidrome 2012 comp in London last week… some good crashes in this one! looks like everyone is really pushing now! and as you’ll see a few getting a scetchy and wide on the straights, I certainly had my moments last year but fatter tyres and ninja skills kept me on the track!!
Also checking back over the times everyone has upped their game and its getting so much quicker!! its such a rad event! don’t miss it, yet another fantastic Redbull production!
Look out for the next one near you, there will be one coming to Edinburgh to coincide with the European cycle messenger champs in June 2012.
