4x racers Luke Limbrick and Rich Lane chat about the attributes of the Stanton 4x bike over a pint of Old Scroggin and bag of pork scratchings at an after hours sesh down at the Nags Head.
British 4x round one action from Afan, South Wales where Luke Limbrick had a bit of a skirmish under the bridge that left him with a flat tyre and the days racing over.
