Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Surely there is a clear divider that would dictate which governing body an event falls under.

If you have to pedal, it's the UCI, if you allow bikes to work via a throttle, it's FIM.

Re the limiter regulations, isn't that for a bike to be road legal. As we are talking about off-road events, surely those eu/national regulations don't apply.
