Martyn Ashton

Mountain bike trials legend and Road Bike Party star

Martyn has more than two decades of experience at the forefront of mountain biking. A former World Expert Biketrial Champion, he has also won numerous British Biketrial national titles, has been inducted into the Mountain Biking UK Hall Of Fame, is a Guinness World Record Holder for the Mountain Bike High Jump, created his own innovative and influential frame designs, and masterminded and starred in more than a decade of a travelling extreme sports show – the Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour – touring the length and breadth of the UK.

In late 2012, Martyn’s road bike trials exploits went viral with the Road Bike Party YouTube video, which has so-far notched up over 14.8 million views and spawned two sequels featuring Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg, and Sam Pilgrim.

Despite suffering a debilitating injury in 2013, Martyn continues to push boundaries and inspire with his straight-talking and honest positivity.
