Tribal Zine have been bringing you live coverage of the first big international event of the season, K-124 Days 2010, which took place this year at the Tour de Scay. Almost our whole staff were their to bring you news, results, photos and videos and to make the most of the spectacle and ride when we had the time. Some of us could count the hours of sleep that we got over the weekend on one hand! Among these passionate riders were a few very talented professionals. First of all, Marcus Gelhard (GPoint), who managed to pull off a pretty amazing feat: our video-editor-in-chief edited the first video footage from the event on-site on Saturday night between the hours of midnight and 2am and uploaded the teaser on Sunday morning! We were all surprised to find the video online at 7am and the viewing figures bear witness to the quality of this hot-off-the-press video! The HD cameras captured some incredible clips and cover the Super-Elite competition in its entirety. The team interviewed all of the main players during the event. Put simply, this is going to be a crazy video!

The day after the event, Nico sent us a selection of his photos, which are quite different to those that we are used to seeing in the trials world (K-124 Days by Nico Bahro). Then came a second gallery; a series of portraits and wide shots of all of the riders that blew us away at K-124 Days. Just look at their faces to see how intense it was! Last week a third gallery was added to the list, choc-full of excellent photos taken from a different perspective to those we are used to seeing and all of which had something special about them (K-124 Days by Nico Bahro (3)). Now here’s another new gallery of photos taken largely on the first day of the competition, which saw riders battling it out at the highest points of the site in pretty extreme weather. The natural sections, composed of little mossy rocks and technical passages, had been rendered extremely slippery by the rain and even the best riders were forced to put their feet down from time to time on some of the bigger passages. Here are a few photos of the combatants who came to battle it out at the Tour de Scay with one common motive: to get through some of the hardest sections ever set!
