Gate Eight team riders recently put on a Dirt Jumping Demo at a school in Wiltshire. The riders, Dave Wardell, Leo Forte (BMX) and George Salmond (BMX) were joined by local dirt jump nutters Steve Geall and Chris Smith. Over 600 pupils attended the demo, along with teachers and even the Headmaster!

The school (location not disclosed but it's rumoured to be the alma mater of team manager Nick 'where are those shoes' Larsen) is lucky enough to have it's own private trails in the school grounds. Pupils are allowed to choose Mountain Biking as a sports option and can ride the jumps instead of playing 'normal team sports' such as Cricket or Rugby. Lucky buggers.
More to come in a forthcoming issue of MBUK.
