FiveTen is doing a “Winter Catch Up” series, starting with Sam Dale. Good quality photos and an interesting look at riding in Macclesfield Forest in the UK.

  The following day Sam was heading to a Moto Trial. Here, he uses a tech hill climb as a descent.

  Flat pedal power. Sam Dale chooses to ride flats 9 out of 10 times, swapping to clipless when he feels he needs it.

I take it the weather in the UK is similar to it is here on the Shore in the winter: dark and gloomy a lot of the time. What’s your winter training ground?
