MacAvalanche Mountain Bike Glencoe
Superb day on the hill yesterday helping provide first aid and safety cover for the Downhill MTB race from the summit at Glencoe Mountain ski area with the rest of the Glencoe lads. Quite an event and full on racing with local lad Joe Barnes taking the win at 10.59 and his sister Hannah as first lady. Thankfully no injuries on the hill although a punter from the West highland way came up to the base station for some TLC after falling off his bike! We were back up later for the ski areas end of season BBQ to round off a good day. Due to the dry weather the customary giant bonfire at the BBQ was toned down to the risk of setting fire to the moor. Plenty of smoke about from fires on Rannoch moor and even donkey hill in Ballachulish was alight. Strangely Kinlochleven which is worst affected has not had its usual festival of fire surrounding it as yet.
Le Mans start and off from the summit down the main run
