Sunshine, wind and dusty tracks at Hell of the North this year. Thank you to Ed Veal and Real Deal Racing for organizing another great day out. This event holds a special place in our hearts as Mike Barry Sr first organized it back in the mid ‘80’s. Surely, he was looking down and sending a bit of extra strength to Ashlin Barry as he rode to victory.

Michael and Ashlin raced on Princeton Carbonworks GRIT 4540 wheels with Rene Herse Bon Jon Pass Endurance 700C x 35mm slick tries, set up tubeless with Silca Sealant.   It was an ideal set up for the dry, windy conditions.
