Russia does not have a single rider in the UCI classifications. Trials riders over there seem to prefer street to natural or competition riding : we are seeing more and more street trials videos coming out of Russia and they are all very impressive ! 16 year old Chekin Konstantin has been getting himself noticed on the trials forums lately : he subscribes to the Damon Watson/Neil Tunnicliffe school of riding – 100% street trial. While this style originated in the UK, will the relief guard come from the East ?
Chekin is currently sponsored by Russian online shop ONLYbikes.Ru and rides the new Rockman Kortz... In August we showed you some photos of his bike. Now here is his latest video, filmed last month it features some massive bunny hops, hooks, gaps and sidehops and some spectacular rail rides… All with his trademark style.
