OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER: EPISODE 4
This is it. Starting back with his West Highland Way FKT, Rab has now been on an 18 month journey. What started as an idea, and went through various iterations of a fragile dream, has now become a very lucid reality. Rab will take to the start the line in Plymouth, on a course steeped in UK cycling folklore, against the best the nation has to offer. As the pressure mounts, it’s important to remember that this is a choice, and no matter the outcome, Rab is slowly proving to himself, and others, that dreams, in all their unfiltered chaos, are there to be chased.
OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER: EPISODE 3
With 11 days until the British XC champs, Rab decides to mix things up. His physical shape is looking good - the numbers don’t lie - but what about the mental preparations? Riding an indoor skatepark might not seem like ideal preparation for a national xc championship, but as we find out from some esteemed members of his cohort, fun can be just as beneficial as physical gains...
OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER: EPISODE 2
With a name like Rab, it’s not a long shot to assume that being Scottish carries a lot of pride. Glentress was built in the late 90’s and has proven to be an iconic destination for riders from around the world. From those just starting out on wheels, through to the cross country racers who use the Black route as a training benchmark, this forest has many tales to tell. Rab decides to tackle the Black route, and assess if he really is faster than he used to be.
OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER: EPISODE 1
In the first episode of this four part series, Rab takes a look back at where it all began, in the foothills of Fife, through to the crushing disappointment of the 2006 commonwealth games, and how that has led to where he is now, including his FKT on the West Highland way in 2020. He begins to ask the question, at 36, should he know better than to risk reliving past pains, or is chasing dreams always worthwhile?
