While winter is spot in the northern part of Europe, San Romolo/Italy offers sunny and on average dry conditions.
This makes it a perfect base to test different products and work on the bike set up.
Schwalbe Procore is a dual chamber systems that allows the rider to run low pressure on the outer chamber combined with a high-pressure inner chamber.
The inner chamber prevents dents and keeps the tire in place.
Setting SAG is a very important part of the suspension set up and depends on riding terrain and riders needs.
Along with this we want to put the actual feeling of the bike into numbers.
The team used a full telemetrical system to generate more information about their suspension performance.
Maguars MT7 breaks deliver the wanted break performance combined with 800 mm RaceFace bars to keep the freedom of individual cockpit design.
Greg enjoyed the fast, dry and technical trails at San Romolo/Italy. While back home in Scotland, it´s frequent rain showers and single digit temperatures that rule.
From competitors to team mates, Matt and Greg had some good laughs and from their first meeting they worked on a great relationship on and off the bike.
