Scottish cyclocross is intriguing—for one thing, they have castles.
Martin Steele of Endura Ltd put together a video from a trip to the Isle of Mull for Cross at the Castle which, as you can see, isn’t your average race weekend. The events are held over two days in the grounds of Glengorm Castle, a Victorian country house on the north-western coast of the island, with views out over the Atlantic to both the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
Perched on the edge of Europe, the Isle of Mull can be hit by fierce winter storms and when race day arrived on Saturday the rain lashed down and the wind tore across the exposed section of the course. The ferries connecting the island to the mainland might have been cancelled for 24 hours, but two days of racing in some wild conditions went ahead.

- In late March I am planning a trip to Arkansas. I have never been there to ride before and was wondering if anyone has any trail recommendations. I know that I am for sure going to ride slaughter pen, but other than that I don't have much of a plan. What trails do you recommend?
- I've had my Garmin HR monitor (the kind with the detachable module and replaceable battery) for exactly 1 year and just replaced the battery after it started giving me sporadic readings. Even with a new battery it is still giving me bad readings and cutting out occasionally during my training. Is 1 year a normal life span for a HR monitor? Should I get a new one or does anyone have any tricks to get it working consistently again? I tried washing it real good and that didn't seem to help. Thanks.
