Re: The Official Scottish Rugby Thread

All fair points. One thing I will always remember is being drilled about mental toughness. And no, I cannot claim to have achieved it. That is what has set the All Blacks apart down the decades IMO. We accept making mistakes and performing to 75%. They never do. Until we change that we will always ...

BM, get shot of your bike, get down to alpine at inners or glentress and pick up an ex-hire off roader, you live in the best part of the uk, europe or arguably the world for options in going off road, with the trails at glentress and the downhill at inners, plus ready access to the natural stuff in ...

My last photo was a bit deceptive, I'll admit. It faces away from the trail, while the trail was hard-packed gravel. There are no really 'rough' trails close by - I need to take the hard-packed probably 8kms into the park to get to them. Yeah, mine was off the trail too for optimum 'boreal forest' ...

A lot of MTB coaches have a preference for teaching people on flats to give them proper technique. I can't remember the last time I saw anyone other than a fat old granny or kid...
