With the New Year Celebrations over, it is time to get back to the hustle. It is exciting times, having just received my 2012/13 Never Summer samples and the catalogues and checking out the innovations, it is time to hit the road. The next six weeks are not far off back to back trade shows all over Europe. The first stop is to Avant Premiere – an on snow, trade only test in the French Alps. Hopefully I will manage to squeeze in a few days riding too!
