2020 has been rather different for pro MTB photographer SaskiaDugon, with her normal schedule of a summer on the World Cup circuit with her dog Trigger totally rewritten. All was not lost though, as some summer months back at home in the Brecon Beacons of Wales turned out to be a marvellous change.
We caught up with Sam during the AUTMNL ADVNTR challenge to chat about her changing perspective on the seasons, and why autumn might just be her new favourite time of year.

The Bear Bones 200: an infamously brutal 200 km ride hosted in a different area of Wales each year.
Chris Lansley (bearlegged) took on the challenge for the first time, this year ridden as a solo ITT rather than a mass start, and shared his experiences, moody photographs and small frustrations (don't mention sheep or gates to him) with us.

“My name is Pi Manson. I believe in DIY punk, fun bikes, and truth to materials. I want local, handmade bikes and parts to be as accessible as possible. I leave my fillets un-filed. They show the process, the maker’s marks. A raw fillet is honest and utilitarian, beautiful as it is.
My custom components have featured on award winning show bikes, been ragged by hard working messengers, and abused on long bike tours. My bikes are strong, fit for purpose, utilitarian, beautiful.”
Enjoy the Clandestine.cc story from Pi, thanks to this beautifully made short film passion project, on ADVNTR now (link in bio).

Conceived for riders looking for *even* more of a challenge than the Dirty Reiver (200 km), or those looking for a supported coast to coast challenge with a twist, the Frontier300 is back for 2021 on the 12th June.
Totalling 300 km of road and gravel from the west coast of Scotland to the east coast of England, the Frontier 300 links up the Borders’ finest forests and gravel sectors. The sands of Druridge Bay will be home to the SalsaCycle’s Finishers Party, as well as brunch on the beach.
Is this the challenge you need to look forward to next year?
