ASHTON BIKES JUSTICE
It seems MBUK has some responsibility for this bike. We’re not as hog whimperingly responsible as the father who begot it, of course, more like the ghastly mate who got the father drunk, but not too drunk, egged him on with nods and winks, then threw the condoms out of the camper van window and held his coat.
Or as Martyn Ashton put it (sanely) in his bike launch thank you speech:
“Thanks to MBUK for covering Trials, a discipline that gets little or no coverage any where else in the world. MBUK have had the bollocks not only to cover it but to put it on their covers!”
So it’s kinda our fault, but this sort of sucking up has no effect on our hard bastard reviewers as you’ll find out in MBUK 161 (July) on sale 18th June.
