Watch Martyn Ashton’s emotional Trans World Sport section

What an inspiration

The past four years of Martyn Ashton’s life have been eventful to say the least. From his breakthrough Road Bike Party video, through to tragically breaking his back and then defying the odds with the heroic films he’s made for GMBN.

Here’s a look back at the journey Ashton has been on thanks to Trans World Sport. There’s some great interviews with Martyn and a behind the scenes look at everything he’s been though.

Martyn said: “Trans World Sport was a huge part of my childhood and early riding career – I used to watch it religiously each week. TWS always featured such amazing athletes and an incredibly diverse range of sports. Once my career took off a bit I didn’t have the chance to regularly sit down to watch the show but always looked forward to flights because it would often be an option of viewing on the plane.

“To be featured on the show is quite simply unbelievable. I certainly can’t imagine how I sit next to some of the international athletes that I’ve watched on the show. In all honesty, I don’t think I do, but hopefully, the story is interesting and viewers enjoy the summary of where I’m at these days.”

It may be a bit longer than your usual marketing edit but this is well worth a watch all the way through. More than anything we’re amazed how positive Martyn has been through out everything. He’s an inspiration to us all.
