We've just come back from the Trek Remedy launch in Mexico.
Here's an excerpt from the full feature article:

Read on here to see how Doddy got on with the newest 6in trail bike to hit the mountain bike scene.
To check out the breathtaking scenery and trails to die for, sit back relax, and keep scrolling down for the delights of Mexico.
