Trial cycling legend Martyn Ashton and the Global Mountain Bike Network are back with another stunning video that’ll give you the shivers and get you stoked on life.
Ashton is a pioneer in the world of the mountain bike; one of the main riders responsible for the huge trials boom during the 90s and bringing trial cycling to the mountain bike at all, a four-time British champion, and a man whose magazine cover shots inspired a thriving scene in Great Britain that spawned the likes of Danny MacAskill.
But in 2013 while riding in his touring action sports stunt show, Ashton has a crash which would leave him paraplegic. He was down, but he certainly wasn’t out.
Martyn returned in 2015 with “Back on Track”, a positively tear-jerking video that saw the paraplegic cyclist get back on the mountain bike with the help of a custom-built set up, Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg and Blake Samson. At the time of writing, the video has more 1.25 million views.
