PNG - 312.4 kb Rockman (and Tribal) rider John Webster was the big revelation at the 2010 World Championship, finishing in seventh place in from of his home crowd in Mont Sainte-Anne. In 2011, he repeated the feat, and even improved on it, finishing in fourth place in the hellish Champéry final, ahead of some of the biggest names in the discipline. So it goes without saying that John has talent, But if you needed any further proof, his latest video, Back and Fourth, should leave you in little doubt.

This year, John’s talent could reach an even bigger audience: he is one of the 20 entrants competing for a place on the first season of Canada’s Got Talent. What better showcase for this incredible rider and for competition trials in a country where the discipline is still not recognised or properly organised? We wish him the best of luck! Here’s his audition video and a short interview that he gave a few days ago on local TV to talk about this new challenge. You know what you have to do now - whether you’re a fan of this kind of show or not, help a fellow trials rider out and click below to vote for the talented Canadian rider! You can vote every day until the 30th January… So get voting! John deserves a helping hand!
