Local Loop – Andy Blair

[SV_VIMEO id=”50963194″]

Aussie Marathon National Champion, Andy Blair drags Flow Mountain Bike around his local trails of Queanbeyan. He loves the European Alps, as well as the race tracks all over Australia but he still rates his local loop as his most favoured trails in the world.


Andy grew up riding these trails, literally out the back door of his parent’s house. A strong contrast to the purpose-built trails we usually ride around Canberra, these are raw, aged and rugged. Crafted by years of motorcycle use, they tested our bike handling skills to their limits.

We did our best to follow the smooth riding race whippet up, down and around these wild trails in what turned out to be quite an epic ride indeed.

Take a ride out the back of Queanbeyan and you may find a flash of red, white and black sniper pinning it through the trees at warp speed.

For such a well-versed racer, Andy frothed on a little bit of an adventure. Flowing singletrack or groomed turns gave way to raw trails and epic vistas, riding this stuff strikes a balance between training rides and real mountain biking for Andy.
The man of the moment in Aussie marathon racing. His Dedication to the sport, success and approachable manner makes Andy Blair (AKA Manly Flair) a pleasure to share a podium, casual ride, yarn, or a meal with.
