Freeriding dirt jump star Blake Samson signs up with the Saracen Dirt team alongside Lance McDermott.
Saracen are delighted to announce the addition of UK-based Blake Samson to the Saracen Dirt team!
Blake is a well-known face on both the UK and international scenes, being consistently ranked within the top 50 riders in the world on the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour for the last two years.
From his own impressive solo video showcases, to the light-hearted Bike Riders United How-To web edits, Blake is a massive character with an even bigger bag of jaw-dropping skills and we are stoked to have Blake riding on Saracen for the 2012 season.
“This might be a surprise to some, but I have moved over to Saracen bikes for 2012. I am so excited to be riding for a British bike brand and looking forward to be working with all the guys at Saracen. I’ve been riding the new Amplitude ALX and CR3 models and I am loving them so much.
I’m looking forward to iceBike* in a few weeks and then it’s off to California for a 3 weeks to kick off my new 2012 season. I will also be riding on the Animal Bike Tour this year and as well as a number of FMB world tour events. It’s going to be a big exiting year for myself and Saracen bikes!” Blake Samson
Blake will be competing in domestic and international competitions aboard both our CR3 and ALX frames, as well as helping out with the development of our 2013 models. Blake joins long-time Saracen rider Lance McDermott on the Saracen Dirt Team, making for a formidable team roster that we hope to see atop plenty of podiums in the coming year!
Uncanny resemblance? The Go-Po? Time for an integrated helmet cam?
