Brendan Fairclough and Friends Tear Up Edinburgh

13 July 2017  |  

On route to the 2017 Fort William World Cup, the SCOTT-Velosolutions team (Brendog & Vigé) stopped in at the newly finished Velosolutions pump track in Edinburgh. Joined by friends Andrew Neethling, Olly Wilkins and Duncan Ferris, the crew put the new asphalt pump track through it's paces.

"There are loads of lines and they all roll mega fast, its getting your head around the fact that you're not going to fly out the top of the berm or off the side of the track. It's perfectly grippy with loads of flow" - Olly Wilkins

"We found a few little challenges but we needed a little bit more time to see what was really possible. We had a great few hours, Claudio and the Velosolutions team have done a great job" - Brendan Fairclough

The Skelf Pump Track is Scotland's 3rd Velosolutions pump track build and it sits in the city centre at the base of Arthurs Seat. Transforming the area, the track has proved hugely popular with the locals who got the chance to rip around the track with an all star crew.

Joined by Aspect Media and Sven Martin, the session went down hard. Check out what went down and how some of the best riders in the world across DH, 4x and Dirt Jumping tear up the Skelf Bike Park asphalt pump track in Edinburgh.

For all of this crew, pump tracks played a major role in the early days of their riding and to this very day, the sessions go down just as hard. From cornering to jumping and manuals, a pump track provides the perfect playground to master these skills and these guys are testament to that. One thing is for sure, the entire crew can't wait to get together again for another epic session.
