Name: Christo Gallagher

Age: 16

Where are you from? Edinburgh

How long have you been filming? Properly for a year

What camera equipment do you use and PC or Mac? I use a Panasonic NVGS-320 (which I hate). and use an ancient imac, with Final Cut Pro.

Can we expect a DVD? Maybe next year, but I didn’t do enough filming this year to make one.

What bike/bikes do you ride? Giant Faith, and a DMR Trailstar

Who is the next big rider from Scotland? Lewis Buchanan for sure. Having had such a good season this year and moving onto world cups next year. He is definitely one to watch in the future.

What is the scene like in Scotland right now? The scene at the moment is better than ever, from what I’ve seen. Everyone is getting faster and the racing scene is getting huge. I think there should be funding for the sport to allow it to grow further.

Got any more plans for filming? Would hopefully like to expand on this year and make a better film to showcase Scottish riders.
