Just three months after suffering a severe spinal injury, Martyn Ashton, international mountain bike trials legend and ex-World Champion, announces that he has today released his spectacular sequel to Road Bike Party.
Following the huge success of the first film, Martyn has been secretly working on the sequel, however his accident during a bicycle trials demo on Sunday 1st September at Silverstone’s Moto GP – in which he dislocated his T9 and T10 vertebrae, leaving him a paraplegic and a wheelchair user – cast doubt as to whether it would ever be finished.
“It’s very different to what I planned but I’m really starting to love it and care for it,” Martyn says of the finished film.
It’s a brilliant collection – you can lose the fact that we’re on a road bike as it just looks like a great piece of riding. The first Road Bike Party was all about it being a road bike but this one, the road bike doesn’t get a chance – the stuff that we do collectively is beyond what would be ‘normal’ for a trials bike. It’s exceptional.
Thanks to some help from Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg and videographer Robin Kitchin, Road Bike Party 2 is now ready for release. Just sit back and watch in awe at things you never thought possible on a road bike.
