Run to the Hills powered by XS Power Drink kicks off next week with 4 teams taking on the challenge of hitting the best spots in the UK and delivering you some amazing photos and videos from their trip.
Each team will be spending their week putting together a photo slideshow and shooting video content for edits that you will get to vote for after the event. The teams have to start at least 100 miles away from the Dirt Office, and spend their week travelling back to the office in South Wales where they will be presented with one last challenge. The photographers will then be given a big bottle of midnight oil and will work on the slideshows for the Dirt team to check out the following day.
The edits will then start to drop and over the weeks they do you lot get to vote on which is your favourite. When the votes have all been counted and verified by big boss Mike Rose we will announce the winner and 2013 Dirt Run to the Hills Champions. So who is up first? That team is from DMR, and what a team it is!
Film and Photo: Chris Seager and Jacob Gibbins, together they are Aspect Media.
So where are this rabble going to be heading? Based South of London you can expect them to hit their local spots and there’s been talk of Brendan’s compound being featured. Then the boys are going to make their way across the UK to end up at the Dirt office by Friday afternoon. With a mix of riders who are at home on anything from downhill bikes to mini moto’s we are looking forward to a whip or 7 from Brendan and some sweet dirt jump shapes being thrown by everyone else. You have all heard of the guys on this team but just in case you need a reminder here are a few clips of the boys.
You can keep up with all the action on Twitter is you search the hashtag #dirtrtth and make sure you give a follow to the boys to check what they get up to:
