Ricky Crompton wins Nissan X Trail Slopestyle comp

The UK's best dirt jumper wows the crowds in Italy

The Nissan X Trail Slopestyle competition took place earlier this month in Bergamo, Italy and Mancunian Ricky Crompton stole the slopestyle show, putting together a 360 nose down, tail whip and back flip in a combo that won him the Best Trick prize.

In a recent interview with MBUK, Ricky said that Slopestyle is where it's at for him: "Big terrain, some natural and some man-made, brings together many aspects of mountain biking in one course. Slopestyle gives me the variety of riding I love."

He's certainly doing a good job so far...
