DirtTV: A Day with the Anderson Brothers
Joel and Isaac Anderson are two young downhill rippers from Triscombe in Somerset who live in a house in the middle of the woods and like nothing better than shredding the trails.
Filmer Jacob Gibbins caught up with the Joel and Isaac to follow them around for a day and watch the young rippers tear up their local tracks.
Unfortunately one of the brothers hits the deck hard and unbelievably breaks his collar bone for the fourth time!
Read, look, watch and enjoy!!!
Names? Isaac and Joel Anderson of course.
Ages? 16 and 14.
Where your from? LA, California... just kiddin. Triscombe Stone in Somerset.
Who are you riding for in 2011? Rose UK Flow Team.
What are your racing plans this season? BDS all the champs like English, Southern and Sational and maybe some European stuff.
What you doing training wise? Me and Isaac go to the gym 4 times a week and ride pretty much every weekend because of the uplift.
What did we get up to filming? Some crazy shit. So crazy Joel couldn't handle it. We did a slippery run down the original track at Triscombe which was the first ever downhill track we rode and what got us fixed.
What are your main aims for this coming season? Get in some sick results. We are both the youngest in our new categories so age does effect performance but we are both really driven to get as many podiums and as many good results as possible.
Whats it like living in the middle of the woods and having a dad that runs the uplift? Amazing! When the weather is hot and the tracks are dusty you just can't stop riding. The trails are always growing in numbers making new experiences happen right on your door step. And training just turns into ripping some turns and smashing some jumps with your friends. You can't ask for more. :)
