JPEG - 53.1 kb The heart of the street trials scene is located in England. Here there are two schools of rising, personified by two emblematic riders. The first draws its inspiration from BMX and we all know who is the big name there; Danny MacAskill, who brought the discipline unprecedented media coverage with his incredible web video. The second has its roots 100% in ‘pure’ trials, influencing and being influenced by UCI competition riding.

Perhaps the best known of the riders from this school is Damon Watson, who all but disappeared from the scene towards the end of 2008 (see his last videos in our articles Damon Watson #7 et Damon Watson – a few clips before video 8!). Damon is back and is now riding for Ozonys, on a Curve 26!

Video:

Here are a few clips of Damon’s first ride on his new Curve…
