At Sherwood Pines this weekend

Focus will be taking one of their Big Bud models to Sherwood Pines this weekend for you to drool over, it’s Focus’s All Mountain offering and judging by the verdicts of other bikes in the Focus stable, it’s set to be a blast. We’ve posted more detailed pics and the full spec of the bike at the end of this article.


What Mountain Bike Reviews Editor Justin is picking the Big Bud up next week for testing, and will bring you a full report in the mag soon. I’ve just spoken to him, and he can’t wait.

You won’t be able to ride it this weekend, but there’ll be plenty of other Focus bikes to get a test ride on – the Dirt Decision 129, Black Forest, Black Raider, Raven Pro, Raven Expert and the ladies Zonukwa.

Here’s a Demo rider after a blast on a Raven Pro.

Also available for test ride will be the hotly anticipated First and First Expert, the only full suspension Focus’s available in the UK.

This will be a unique opportunity as it’s the only chance you will get to try out the Focus’s in the flesh this year and really see if you agree with the chaps from the mags that they are truly superb!

Go to now to book your test ride. You could also turn up on the day and there may be a Focus bike free for you to ride! Just make sure you bring two forms of ID – preferably a passport and a utility bill.
