A Cheeky Little Sponsorship Plug

I am un-ashamedly copying this from a new story we ran on Descent-World as Stuart was a great supporter of downhilling in Scotland and really drove our National series to the success it is today. A team will be competing at this years Strathpuffer to raise money in his memory.

As many will know a long standing stalwart of the Scottish downhill scene, Stuart Ruffell, sadly passed away recently. Stuart was a previous owner of the legendary Probikesport in Innerleithen, organiser of the Innerleithn Winter Wet and Wild series in past years and a chairman of the SDA. Outside of the downhill scene he was a leader in the Mountain Rescue amongst other things.

In January this year Stuart entered the Strathpuffer 24 hour event and Dave Hutchens dropped us a note to say that "The Old Puffers" team intend to compete again this year in Stuarts memory.

As a mark of respect for our good friend Stuart, the "OLD PUFFERS" team consisting of Dave Hutchens, Alisdair Camburn and Brian Gibb will again be competing in the Strathpuffer 24 hour MTB event in January 2009, but we want to raise money in his memory for the Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA) that Stuart was involved with.
Stuart will be there in spirit I am sure making sure that we keep pedalling to the bitter end. We though
t it would be a nice gesture to raise money for a charity that he was directly involved with.
Please dig deep and sponsor us online here:

So dig deep folks and give to a worthy cause!
