Last weekend saw the first round of the UK 4X series kick off at Leamington Spa in glorious sunshine, this along with a good turnout of both spectators and riders made for a great days racing.
The fresh new look Dartmoor UK/RAW Sport and Slam69 crew were there to give the rest a race for the top spots on the podium.
Ryszard ’Ryys’ Syrczyński spent the whole year travelling with some of the best Polish, Dartmoor Team riders around Europe to gather materials for the second edition of the Ride Your Way movie series. He filmed guys where you wouldn’t see them everyday – at the best dirt jump spots in Europe, big city streets, best skateparks, forest single tracks, downhill and four cross courses. They visited Barcelona, Berlin, Lyon, Warsaw, Szczawno and some other locations.
The first part of Ride Your Way earned a lot of fans all around the world and has almost 100 000 views here on Pinkbike. If you haven’t seen it yet you should scroll to the bottom later, but now we want to present you with the Ride Your Way 2 / Bling official trailer:
The new Dartmoor UK 4X team is taking shape with new sponsors signing up now. So far we have a large co-sponsor waiting in the wings, who are in the apparel side of things.
2011 saw the Dartmoor Phantom 4X frame rip up the National series and take the UK National Champion Luke Limbrick to the top of the podium.
Slam69/Dartmoor uk riders Rich Lane and Luke Limbrick took a couple of bikes down to the woods to play. The woods in question are the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, UK, the bikes, Limbo’s 4X Phantom and the other, a Dartmoor Shine Custom build.
The Phantom is the same bike Luke won the 2011 National 4X champs on, 6 speed SRAM XO,, Hope Tech2 Pink Brakes, Dartmoor Raider rims and Hope Hubs, 100mm up front taken care of by a pair of sweet Fox 831′s. total weight, just over 22Ilbs.
The Shine is setup in singlespeed mode, we have run it with gears and it works fine but this setup is so much fun and nothing to go wrong or fiddle with. Forks are 130mm Manitou Circus, totally love these forks, very reliable all year and just £299rrp. maybe even cheaper at Slam69.co.uk… sorry.
So go check out the movie… enjoy
