BikeRadar Live 2009: Complete round-up

By BikeRadar | Monday, June 1, 2009 3.05pm

The first BikeRadar Live has come to an end, but it certainly won't be the last. Thousands of people poured into Donington Park over the weekend to experience the biggest bike festival the UK has ever seen.

Our team of roving reporters, photographers and videographers were out and about all weekend and have been posting regular updates on the site. Check out the list below for the articles you may have missed so far:

From watching the world's best professional downhillers, dirt jumpers and stunt riders in action, to taking part in a challenging road sportive or an all-night mountain bike enduro, racing against the clock or against each other on the track, to trying out a road or a mountain bike, to checking out (and buying) the latest bike gear, to watching films, to learning skills – it was all there in one place.

Here's a selection of shots from the weekend. There's plenty more to come too.
