Lucky For us Joe Barnes

Joe Barnes has been a howies rider for a while now. Here's his latest email sent after he came down for a photo shoot with us. I'm sure he didn't expect me to post it but it's a taster of what his new year looks like. Have a good one Joe.

Hi Tim
Happy new year.
I hope all is good down in Cardigan. It was great to come down for the photos and see what goes on down your way. Since then I have been home since enjoying the snow. Lots of cross training and I have been going out xc skiing a lot and also DH skiing on the Nevis Range. It has been great fun for a change but now the majority of the snow has melted it is nice to get out on the bike again.
As I haven't been to New Zealand this winter I am even more excited about next summer and have planned out my racing schedule and possible road trips. Over the last few months I have been kitting out my race van inside. I have changed the layout, fitted a second battery, more lights, cheese fridge and increased storage space. I along with friends are going to make a video blog next summer following our road trips to central europe racing IXS Euro Cups, world cups and the mega. I have always loved film and when i was 15 I made a film for the Fort William Mountain Film Festival that won best film and got sent to Banff for their best films. It was just a bit of comedy mixed with some down hill but a good mix. I haven't had a camera since then but it will be great to get set up again.
My training is going well and I am constantly improving in the gym and getting out in the hills loads as well. I feel I will be more prepared than ever for next summer and orange are making my new bike just now with a new revised linkage that should be the ticket.
I am racing all the world cups, IXS European cup, Mega Avalanche, British series and select Scottish races.
The British DH film Foot Out Flat Out 2 has been released and includes my section filmed here in Fort William on my own tracks.

Thankyou for your support

See you at some point over the summer

The office takes a while to stir first thing, like a sleepy dog waking slowly, getting ready for that first walk of the day. Getting out of a warm bed is not always easy, sometimes impossible.

Best to hit the ground running.

Apologies if some of you may have already heard of this.

This is a game you play where every right general knowledge question you answer in the quiz generates free rice that's sent to those in need. It was founded in Oct 2007 and to date has donated 73,466,848,890 grains of rice.

About FreeRice (from their website)

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

FreeRice has two goals:

  1. Provide education to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.


I' m a huge fan of Jacquie Phelan, this is a lovely short film about her. when you get five minutes take a look, without her womens mountainbiking would be very different today.
