Our favourite nuggets of social media from the past 7 days
January is plodding onwards and the nights are still cold and dark – thankfully that’s given us plenty of time to browse social media. Here’s our picks of the best Tweets and Instagrams from the past seven days:
1. Gee Atherton‘s giving us the hump with his corny puns.
2. You may remember the absolutely mad ‘S-Works’ balance bike (complete with a Hope disc brake) that Gary Tansey designed for his son’s Christmas present. Well here it is getting its first test ride.
3. Downhill World Champion Loic Bruni seems to be settling in nicely on his new Specialized team.
4. Check out these Santa Cruz Syndicate motocross bikes, would you fancy one?
5. Danny MacAskill‘s got himself a custom ride too, this time it’s a Red Bull Audi.
6. More downhill team news this week as Cube announced its first ever downhill team. It will be represented this year by Scotsman Greg Williamson and Kiwi Matt Walker.
7. GT’s latest enduro recruit, Rachel Throop, is back on her bike after shattering her tibia last summer.
8. Ok, we know we probably shouldn’t have featured Aaron Gwin for a third week in a row but this is a pretty cool story from his childhood.
