About othomas

Ex Pat from Manchester England. Enjoy running . biking, windsurfing and being out doors with my dog Iska ( a Eurasia in case you ever see us on the trail).
I have been XC riding for some time and would now like to step up to trail riding. including jumps, drops; berms etc..
I have completed the Endless trail in Sissach a few times now, although I have to feel safe but not really "sending" the jumps. I am now working on the Arlesheim trail which I believe is harder. If I can make this , then I will be a happy man.
My weapon of choice is a Cube Trail Hard Tail , the 2.6 inch tyres should make up for the lack of full suspension + is super fun to ride.See you on the trail

      Gratli gone, not without mistakes but nothing serious. The circle was very slippery because of the drought. Gempen pumptrack was a lot of fun.

      Thanks to Dominic (Adventure Buke CH - adventure-bike.ch) I had
      the confidence to try this path. This was the first time to try the difficult second half of the Gratweg trail. It went well, the hardest point is the transmit section, this requires real brake control + very good brakes but there is a drop that needs some speed ... makes the section very difficult. Super lucky to have survived!

      Good tour, aimed at getting my legs moving again after a heavy fall last week. Needs a small replan, to connect with the Complete Blaueberg Trail; A small section leading to the trail needed to be pushed as the path seemstohave dissapeared

      Weider a great tour with Desi in the Chrischona district. This area is a lot of fun because the uphill is easy and the downhill is exciting. OK, I completely screwed up a jump, but next time.

      Super trail today, much more fluid than before. Once liked at the jump segment, I am extra thankful for my 16 Eur Roller Blade knee and elbow protection, thanks to you no scratching;
