Luke Cryer may not be a name you know but be prepared for that all to change. He already has two 4X World Champs medals in his cabinet and has big plans for 2017.

Tommy C takes up the story:

"You may not of heard of Luke Cryer before, but he's on his way to writing himself into the record books. At only 20 years old, he's already earned himself a silver and a bronze medal at the 4X world championships, and the next UK hopeful is now working towards that top step and expanding into different disciplines.

I headed up to a fairly iconic road gap and to rip up some pine needle gold with Luke a few weeks back to check out his trail bike hucking skills, and it's fair to say the 4X skills certainly transfer across. And he can definitely get round a corner.

The Midlands local, hailing from Stone will be racing all British 4x Series and 4x Pro Tour rounds in 2017. He'll also be at Crankworx and you can catch him at 4x World Champs as well as dabbling in the British Enduro Series.

Luke would like to thank Royal Racing and 7 Protection for their support.
