An amazing response with the most incredible pictures – The Cognation Facebook photo competition

Posted: 18 October 2013

A few weeks ago the Cognation Team had the pleasure of announcing the winner of our Mountain Biking photo competition that was run on Facebook. After 73 separate entries and 734 votes our fans chose the winner:

Cognation competition winner Alan Hughes – Taken at Machen, Cognation South Wales Mountain biking
Alan Hughes – Taken at Machen

The part of the competition that amazed us was the quality of the entries; many of the pictures were visually stunning, featuring awesome riding and some were just hilarious! These pictures of real mountain bikers doing what they do best are a testament to the type of rider we see (and want to see more of!) here in South Wales.

Although this competition is over please keep sharing your picture and videos. You can send them to us by email to or you can upload them directly to our Facebook Page.

The Cognation project continues to deliver improved services, trails and infrastructure for South Wales’ Mountain Bikers but we couldn’t do it without your support and also without you telling us what you want. Feel free to use any of our growing social media sites to let us know how we’re doing or ask any questions:
