It started out with the gargantuan Journey up to Fort William in Scotland for the British Downhill Series, with a double puncture on the Duck Truck making it just a little more arduous. Once we were there, ourselves, the officials, fellow sponsors and the riders who were brave enough to take on the World Cup course, had to batten down the hatches as we were hit with mental winds and driving rain. Disregarding that though, it was another enjoyable event and its great to be part of the BDS with an awesome bunch of people.
Not one to rest on our laurels the team then did a split with Chief Duck Gary, Duck Smart Rob and Team DS Athlete Lewis Lacey all heading over to the Dirtmasters Festival at Winterberg in Germany to team up with Michael and his team from Ison Germany to strut our smelling cleaning stuff over there.
Rob was like a dog on heat and sniffed his way into the Best Whip competition (finishing in the Top 10 out of 100's who entered), whilst Lewis claimed a 4X Pro Tour Podium, happy Days.

Whilst all of that was kicking off over in Germany, our Paul stuck to the UK and headed the short distance to the British MXGP. (yeah we know he gets all of the hard jobs) At Matterley Basin he met up with our Comp winner Glenn Despres who enjoyed Pit Lane access with our supported team KRT Monster Energy MX2, as well as a signed Jordi Tixier Race shirt. On top of meeting our DS team's Paul also finalised the deal that see's Duck Smart now as an Official Supplier of MXGP, and pretty chuffed about it we are too.
To round out the month it was back to Wash Bay duty, this time at the MX Nationals/Pro Nationals Festival Double Header at Weston Beach. It worked out pretty well for us as we are partners of both, so we fired up 8 Wash Bays for all and sundry to use with our special Foam pressure Washer adapter grabbing some attention.
Well that was us for May. Loads more to come in June and lots of new product development happening so keep an eye for us at Mountain Mayhem and the BDS for samples and testers.
