Come on a short journey from teenage dreamer years to professional downhill racer with Mike Jones.

I first met Mike at Llangollen Welsh Champs in 2010, it was wetter than an otters pocket and at that time the track was brand new and had basically become a straight line down one of the steepest hills in the country, absolute carnage. But i remember seeing Mike, fully kitted out in tracksuit, football trainers and a Alloy MX jersey pinning it on his Norco and just thinking. Man, i hope this boy in trackies doesn't beat me. I beat Mike that race but he got me in the 16 consecutively after that.

Since having a good friendship with Mike since we both got into racing downhill and continued this friendship into his racing and my filming it was about time we got together to make an edit. we set out on finding some time in between racing & training to get out and film for 2 days, a day of Trail riding and a day of downhill. We decided on CwmCarn & the Risca Valley for the Trail bike scenes with the help of Darrell of Cwmdown uplift services letting me hang out the side of his van filming at 25MPH and carting us around for the day. The second day we headed to the infamous Rheola downhill track, Rocky, Rooty, Fast and Loose it provides loads of variety in training and is probably one of the best tracks in the UK.
