I went to Aston hill bike park to see if the extreme MTB tricycle would survive a real mountain bike DH track with drops and jumps, but I didn’t think it would be this crazy!!
I decided to ride at Aston Hill Bike Park because it is so steep and pretty technically on a normal bike so of course I knew it would be a true test for the tricycle. Unfortunately the trike still only has a front brake which really makes things interesting when it starts getting steep! The trail I rode is called surface to air and it has a lot of different jumps, berms and bumps and was super hard to get down on the tricycle which made it extra fun!
After a few crashes and near misses I made it to the bottom. After being towed back to the top by Lewi Pilgrim and his E-bike I did a GoPro top to bottom run which was amazingly fun, I also found an insane place to do drifts on the tricycle!! – Sam Pilgrim
One of the biggest question mountain bikers wonder is surely, just how much faster are these mountain bike pros than me? I headed out into Queenstown Bike Park with Tracey Hannah (currently ranked 3rd in the world) to find out for myself!
But the twist in the story is that she gave me a piece of advice that I had NEVER heard and it changed my riding faster than any other coaching I’ve received….
