Christopher Gallagher 2011

Christo Gallagher rips up the Braefoot and Innerleithen trails.

What caught my eye was the “shed” huck at 0.39. We don’t see nearly enough “shed” hucking these days, I think we need a competition, what do you think?

Christo Gallagher is a 18 year old rider from Edinburgh, Scotland. After several shoulder dislocations, he finally had surgery completed four months ago. We caught up with him for a couple of days shooting for a short promo. A perfect day at the trails in Braefoot was matched with two equally as horrible days at Innerleithen. First it was fog, heavy cloud and the lack of sunshine, then it was the typical Scottish winter with heavy rain, cold temperatures and surprisingly strong winds.

“I am 18 years old and from Edinburgh. Coming back from an injury which prevented me from riding, I expected it to be difficult and slow, but everything has come back to me pretty quickly.

This winter so far I have been training hard in the gym for the first time before a season, and putting a lot more time on both my cross country and downhill bikes to get my skills up, so that I can push for the results that I want. In 2012 I am planning on racing in the UK and in Europe with the hope of progressing onto bigger and better things if all things go well.

In 2012 I am being support by: CrankBrothers, Pedros, ClifBar, Lizard Skins, O’Neal and

Any other support would be welcomed and you can find my rider CV available for download on my website I am also on twitter, follow @Christo_G.”
