Adrián Lengyel is one of the best Elite riders in Hungary. The 19 year old placed fourth in the Hungarian Championship in Csillebérc, behind Hegedűs László, Ádám Erdélyi and Stefán László. Until recently he was riding for Koxx on a 26” Boxx, but he has changed sponsors and now rides for Rockman on a Slate II, kitted out with top-spec parts, such as the Reset Ti BB! Adrián will also be promoting the world’s No.1 trial webzine with his videos, a partnership that we are very excited about – this young rider has talent AND style!

The temperature has risen a bit since we last spoke to him (it’s currently 5-6° in Hungary) and he has sent us his first street video on his new bike. PNG - 287.5 kb His riding is precise and smooth and he has a very relaxed style and seems to have mastered the techniques well. The editing is also very good, with a soundtrack that is as hypnotic as the riding. Enjoy…

Further down are some photos of Adrián and his new bike as well as an interview that we carried out at the start of the months. Thanks Adrián!

Interview:

Adrian very kindly answered a few questions for us at the start of the month when he joined the Tribal Zine team...

JPEG - 52.6 kb Jébegood: Hey man! Can you introduce yourself quickly?

Adrian: My name is Adrian Lengyel, I’m 19 and I’m from Hungary.

Jébegood: When did you start riding trials?

Adrian: I first started in 2005 and have been competing on the national MVSC circuit since 2006.

Jébegood: What are your best results to date?

Adrian: In my first year of competitions I got the following results:

2006 Hungarian Cup, amateur 1st place
2007 Hungarian Cup, amateur 1st place
2007 Hungarian Cup, category C Champion
2007 Hungarian regional championship, category C 1st place
2007 Campona Cup, Budapest 1st place
2007 Hungarian Championship 2nd place

In 2008 I started to ride in the Junior International category, and thanks to my results I was selected for the national team, which meant that I had the opportunity to compete in international competitions. I cam 11th in the European Championships and I’m proud to have got the best result of any Hungarian rider, especially as it was my first year in Junior!

2008 European Championship, Heubach, Germany 11th place
2008 World Championship, Val di Sole, Italy 11th place
2008 Hungarian Cup 3rd place
2008 Hungarian Championship 2nd place (with a broken finger)
2008 Overall Hungarian rankings 2nd place

Since 2009 I’ve been competing in Elite category. Here are my results: I’m especially proud to have beaten the former 2007 and 2008 Hungarian Champion and to have come third in International category!

2009 Balaton Bikefest, Hungarian Cup, Elite 26” 2nd place
2009 Balaton Bikefest, International category 3rd place
2009 Hungarian Cup, Tarcal round, Elite 3rd place
2009 Hungarian Cup, Nyíregyháza round, Elite 3rd place
2009 Overall Hungarian rankings 4th place

JPEG - 62.2 kb Jébegood: Who are your idols?

Adrian: My idols are Vincent Hermance and the Coust’ brothers. I love their style!

Jébegood: Most Hungarian trials are run on artificial obstacles… Do you ride natural too? Which do you prefer?

Adrian: I don’t really like training on palettes or non-natural obstacles. I much prefer nature! I like training on rocks and tree trunks, but this can be difficult in Hungary!

Jébegood: You’re currently riding the new Slate II – what do you think of it? How much does your build weigh?

Adrian: I haven’t really had a chance to ‘get to know;’ my Slate II yet, I’ve only ridden it for a few hours. I can’t ride at the moment, it’s -12°C in Hungary and there’s nearly three feet of snow! But I like the bike, the geo seems perfect, even if it might be a little short for me (I’m 1.87m tall!). At the moment it weighs 8.45kg!

Jébegood: Who are your sponsors for 2010?

JPEG - 88.1 kb Adrian: My sponsors are:

- www.rockmanbikes.com
- www.resetthisworld.com
- www.trialshop.cz
- www.doxabi.hu
- www.drotaru.hu

And now Tribal Zine! I’ll be promoting the mag with my videos, which you will be able to watch on the Tribal Channel!

Jébegood: Cool! I’ll send you some logos to include in the videos! Thanks for the support! Are you a Tribal fan then?

Adrian: I think it’s the most popular website in the trials world! I love it because you can find all of the latest news and media!

Jébegood: Thanks Adrian, it’s always good to hear! Thanks for the interview, all the best for 2010 and until the next time! Bye!

Adrian: Thanks, bye!
