Previously Editor here at, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. In the past Rachael has written 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, she has been equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories or doing the site admin. When she's not busy with all the above she's roasting coffee or coaching mountain biking in the Forest of Dean.

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.
