  1. Ride London 2017 is a HUGE success!

    For four years now Andrei has organised one of the best competitions on the world calendar. Each year he invites 10 of the very best riders from around the world to compete on his custom designed course in Green Park, Central London, as part of Prudential Ride London. Ride London is the largest cycling event on the planet, with over 100,000 people riding bikes over the weekend. For the past two years it has been sponsored by Buxton Water who have had a huge impact on the event. We built the course to mimic Buxton Village itself. We also included a photo opportunity where the public could take photos of themselves on a fixed trials bike, so it looked like they were riding the course with the pro’s! 2017 saw a great list of riders from 6 counties around the world compete. Check out the images below for a run down of the weekend.

  2. Andrei visits long term bike sponsors Echo in GuangZhao, China.

    After a great competition in Chengdu, Andrei had a factory visit with team mate Eirik Ulltang from Norway, where they checked out the manufacturing process and met the whole team that supports them. There are some huge changes coming to the bikes for 2018 and they can’t wait to show them to the world. Here are a few images of the factory, with director of Echo, Huang Guang.




  3. 9th in the World in Chengdu, China, at UCI Urban Cycling World Champs

    After two weeks in Moscow on a filming project, Andrei travelling to Chengdu in China for the Urban Cycling World Championships. Andrei had a great first two laps hanging onto a shot at the finals in 6th place, but then was just pushed out by only a few points by former World Champion Giacamo Coustellier and Spanish Champion Sergi Llongueras. It was a great competition and considering the other commitments Andrei has taken on in 2017 he was very happy with yet another top ten world result. The new rules are radically different to the previous rules and it was a great test for all riders. Not only that, but the new location of China where it will now be held for 3 years was fantastic. Andrei is already looking forward to heading back to China in 2018.

  4. British Champion Again for 2017!

    Andrei had a great season in 2017 at the National Cup Series. Despite having a crazy schedule he managed to attend all rounds dominating the series. Andrei’s favourite round was the final round held at Shipley Glenn in Yorkshire. this was by far the hardest round for all competitors and really tested every competitor. Big thanks to BikeTrials Federation UK for their hard work on the 2017 National Cup Series. Also Owen Gawthorpe who’s is Andrei’s main show rider for his team finished in 2nd place, so a huge well done to him!


  5. 2016 British Champion!

    2016 was a very very busy year, but Andrei managed to get to 4 out of the 5 rounds of the British Championships and won them all, securing his place as the Champion 2016. Massive thanks to the sponsors for supporting him through 2016, without their input it would not be possible to sacrifice the days of shows and travel to these events. 



  6. Andrei joins the FiveTen Team!

    So for 2015 I really wanted the best footwear available. After looking around for a bit I decided that the best company would be FiveTen, as they also make the best climbing shoes. I have joined their Pro Team and will be wearing their awesome shoes all year. I’ll be riding with the Aescents found in the Yosemite range of shows, I have found these to be perfect for trials. I will also be climbing in their High Angle bouldering shoes, perfect agressive shoes for the my style of bouldering. So great to be teamed up with the best outdoor shoe company.




  7. New Sponsors for 2015!

    So 2015 I have teamed up with Saltrock Clothing. We are working on some great projects and I will be wearing their great clothes all the time. Saltrock is a great lifestyle clothing brand and create some fantastic clothes. Here is the inroductory video for Saltrock Produced with Chris Brown from In-Motion Media.




  8. Second in the European Trials Contest in Huebach, Germany.

    This year I returned to the Bike The Rock event in Germany. Last year was a great event where I managed to brake yet another Guinness World Record. This year unfortunately the weather was not good, so we couldn’t go for another record. But We did a great contest and I placed 3rd on the first day and 2nd on the second day, dropping just three points both days combined! Vincent finished the weekend on Just one point!! Next up was Hannes Herrmann on a total of 11.  We then did a great show infront of the podium for the crowd. Its such a great event and one of the best crowds I get to ride infront of each year. Huge thanks to the organisers for putting this event together!

  10. First Round of the British Chmapionships!

    So the first round of the National Trials Cup has come and gone, held at Hook Woods Trials Centre in Surrey on the 12th April. It was a really great event and we were so lucky with the weather. Dispite being really tired and a little ill, I managed to get a solid second place. In First was curreent world cup leader and world champion Jack Carthy on 0 penalty points, followed by myself on 6 points and in third place was Sam Oliver who had a solid ride with 33 points. Thats really good going for sam as he was the only 20″ rider in the Elite category. Well done to all competitior and the organisers for setting up a great event.
