Say hello to our latest team member Darren Hall:

Hi my name is Darren. I cut my teeth as a BMX racer in my early teens travelling round the country competing in regional and national races. I discovered mountain biking when a shoulder injury rudely interrupted my mediocre racing career. It wasn’t long before I was entering events like the Dyfi Enduro and then graduated to marathon and endurance races. I’m not particularly competitive, and doubt I’ll ever get anywhere near a podium, but I do like riding fast, both uphill and down, and racing allows me to do that. I have a weird addiction to 24hr solo races even though I’m not very good at them. After Mountain Mayhem in 2016 I swore I’d never do another and yet a few months later I found myself at the Kielder Chiller 24 so I guess I’m still hooked. One day I might actually figure them out and I can retire.”
