After his immense DH World Champs win in 2016, Danny Hart took ownership of the Descend Bikepark in Hamsterley. Now he's teamed up with Descent-World to challenge all comers to put down a time on the Mainline trail.

Airdrop rider, pro trials ace and all-round pinner Brett Penfold (remember Brett's Bike?) has smashed out a 1:20 putting him in second place, just behind "the ninja". On a 150mm Airdrop Edit.

Watch his POV run here. It's quick.



The best bit is that Brett's run puts him just 2 seconds behind "the ninja" on a world-cup winning bike, the Santa Cruz V10. And 5 seconds back from Brett you've got DH racer Marky Neal on a world cup winning Mondraker Summum. Not a bad effort from Brett if you ask me.

Think you can go quicker on your Edit? Hotlaps is open to all comers, so get yourself up to Hamsterley and give it a go. If you can beat Brett's time, we want to hear about it...

It’s a phrase we hear a lot, whether that’s next year's bike launch, industry moguls preaching radical ideas or media journo’s praising the latest and greatest. For me its starting to wear thin. And I wonder have we gone too far?

Pang AKA the "Huck Wizard" is a co-owner of Vertigo Bikes Queenstown and my old boss. Pang has one of the few Edits in the Southern Hemisphere and certainly knows a few things about how to build a sick bike, so we take a look at why Pang built his Edit the way he did.
