Danny Holroyd has signed with Ashton Bikes and is looking to re-enter the Trials Comp scene.
Why sign for Ashton?

"It's time I got a bit more serious about trials, I suppose. I've been having a lot of fun messing around and doing street, but you don't win owt doing it. It's for fun. Nothing wrong with that, but I've had a year out and it's time to get down to business."

How come you got a year out and can I have one please?

"Well Planet X didn't put any pressure on us to do comps, they're more into the street type of bikes anyway, so we did that. We love that kind of riding anyway, so it wasn't a hard decision"

Are you getting any closer to making a living out of riding?

"That's part of it, that's my dream. I'm still working at Halfords for my bread and butter, but we're looking to set our own thing up, doing demos and shows.
We're made a video too, just being edited now."

Who's on it?

"Me, Adam, Chris Smith, it's looking pretty good."

What's it called?

"Well, that's a bit of a touchy issue at the moment. We're still arguing about it. You'll be the first to know."

And maybe a clip for the website? There are 12,000 signed up readers on here now.

"Definitely."
