Video: Animal Bike Tour give a lesson in mountain biking

School visit was a competition prize

The Animal Bike Tour is in its ninth year in 2011

The Animal Bike Tour have performed up and down the UK to thousands of fans this year, everywhere from the UCI World Cup round at Dalby Forest to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Last week they finally wrapped up the season at the unlikely venue of Bishop’s Waltham Junior School in Hampshire.


They were there to do a show for nine-year-old Bradley Wilson, who’d won an Animal competition. Trials legend Martyn Ashton and dirt jumper Blake Samson pulled out all the stops to impress Bradley and his classmates, and also put on a skills masterclass to help inspire a new generation of riders. You can check out highlights from the day in the video below:
