I found this clip while checking out old turbo rally cars and stuff over at My Life at Speed… it’s a 9 year old Spanish kid, Gerard Trueba, doing stuff on his bike that most of us (and a lot of older trials riders) could only dream about. The next Akrigg or MacAskill? (Except Caleb notes that those two run seats on their bikes and this kid doesn’t, so he can’t ride down to the shops to get his mum’s bread. Yeah, I don’t get it either, but I do know Caleb doesn’t rate trials riders who don’t run seats.)
There is some pretty rad motorcycle trials riding in there too from Toni Bou if you’re into that kind of thing.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
