Trek Remedy launch part 2

We've just come back from the Trek Remedy launch in Mexico.

Here's an excerpt from the full feature article:

Mexico's Barranca del Cobre is a long way from Trek's somewhat flat hometown in Wisconsin, and its gnarly, rock-infested trails are an equally far cry from Trek's roots in road bikes.

It's quite fitting - and a relief - then, to discover that Trek have fashioned themselves one of the best All-Mountain rigs we've ridden...

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.

When Shandro looks over his shoulder like this, it normally means it'll be the last you see of him on a ride...

Tarahumara woman- they live a traditional life in cabins made from stone and wood, and are famous for their brightly coloured clothing. Beautiful shots like this wouldn't look out of place in National geographic

Not wasteful like us western types, the Tarahumaran folk recycle everything. Flip flops made from car tyres.

You can tell a lot about a man by looking at his feet.

The Tarahumaran men appeared everywhere- and were always happy to have a photo. For a few Pesos.
