Elliot Heap – Not another winter video?
With swathes of winter mountain bike ‘edits’ floating around the interweb every year, here at Dirt we decided to do things properly and bring you a New Years Day treat. We thought, what would people like to see? We’re guessing something along the lines of a 130mm trail bike, many hucks, gaps and loose corners. You tell us if we were right and all of the above is brought to you by 16 year old Elliot Heap, mainly sideways or in the air!
This is an example of the potential the UK has for winter trail bike riding.. exactly what you could be doing right now – so get that bike back out!
It’s wet, it’s cold, the days are short and light is limited, but with a thin layer of grease beneath your wheels and a natural instinct to be sideways, Elliott corners faster and hucks further than most would on a downhill bike.
Watch out for this young lad in the coming seasons, he’ll be bringing something new to the table of Junior racing.
