BikePark Wales' new blue track and coaching experience

MBUK got a preview of Terry's Belly, BPW's new blue track and sampled a coaching session

The MBUK team braved the Severn Crossing to hit up Bike Park Wales' new blue trail, dubbed Terry's Belly, and had a taster session to improve their jumping skills. Terry's Belly is totting up to be one of the most flowy blue trails the UK has seen. Not only that, the trail is 4.6km long - making it the longest continuous blue descent in the UK!

Find out more by grabbing a copy of MBUK issue 319 that'll be in the shops on the 24th of July.

Alex has been riding bikes since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. He first raced back in 2003, winning the Juvenile category on a sketchy hard tail Planet X bike. Alex lived in the Alps for seven years so isn't shy of a climb or two and loves getting out in his bike in all weather. His favorite thing to ride is steep loamy tracks with loads of opportunities to slam the bike into turns and really give it some frame bending welly! He's broken his fair share of frames, so any bike between his knees is going to get a right seeing to.
