James Purvis: Young and Gunning

Propain Dirt Zelvy's new Junior racer

“Introducing… new Junior Propain Dirt Zelvy rider and 17 year old geordie, James Purvis. He really likes cheese, nipple piercings and drumsticks. Now we have the basics out of the way, you may not have heard of James before. He’s no social media king (yet) or spotlight thief (yet) but he’s been hammering away at the Junior ranks as an underdog hiding in the shadows, and nibbling away at the World Cup rounds over the past few years, following the likes of Scotty Mears and Danny Hart, who live locally to him in the North East of England.

Combined with Phil Atwill, Innes Graham and Isak Leivsson – Purvis is going to be brought right up to speed with the big boys on the team and surely be part of a wild season to come. You can catch James, along with Phil and Innes, this weekend at the first BDS round at AE Forest, Scotland, and then at the first World Cup round in Lourdes, France, the following weekend.”
