Run to the Hills Day 2: Team Saracen


Run to the Hills from XS Power Drink swung into action again today and it seems the Saracen Team were the ones up and about early doors to get their day going. Having spent most of the day in deepest darkest Eastridge it took a while to get in touch with the team but we did eventually and caught up with what they were doing.


Bright and early for the Saracen crew, just waiting for Sam Dale to arrive.

With all the riders ready to hit the road it was time to pack the van and head for the trails. As today would mainly be about getting the riding shots from the DH riders Matt and Blake were sent on a scouting mission to find some dirt jumps and see if they could be ridden.


Very neatly packed van there by Dirt standards.

The weather hasn’t been on the side of a few teams today with only DMR seemingly getting a dry spell in London town. Sam Dale found his bike and with Manon they got their drift on in the muddy trails of Shropshire this afternoon. Jones and Samson were off on their dirt jump mission but it wasn’t looking too promising.

Whilst the guys were off looking for lips and landings Manon and Sam were shredding the woods in front of the camera. This evening has been spent with the team aiming to recreate the Dirt cover in a cave style wall ride, check out the #dirtrtthe hashtag to see what has been going down. We’ll be back tomorrow with some more from Team Saracen and all the other riders and crews on the road this week.
