Wednesday video round-up: Frome Cobble Wobble

Plus Trans-Provence and Easton EA90 RT wheels

Every Wednesday we'll be posting a round-up of videos that have caught our eye over the previous seven days. Starting this week’s collection is a round-up of the action from this year's Cobble Wobble hill climb in Frome, Somerset.

Some 180 riders on all types of bikes – from stars of downhill (Mick Hannah), trials (Martyn Ashton), BMX (Kye Forte) and four-cross (eventual King of the Cobbles Lewis Lacey) to a pantomime horse – battled it out on a race up two historic cobbled streets lined with spectators and 17th century buildings.

This week's second video is a look at the Trans-Provence mountain bike enduro – a multi-stage all-mountain challenge in France, where the winner is decided by their performance on 26 special stages which take place predominantly on downhill singletrack.

Finally, US road/cyclo-cross racer Andy Jacques-Maynes (Kenda/5-hour Energy) extols the virtues of the road tubeless system and takes Easton's EA90 RT wheels for a spin, both on and off-road.
