Jorge “Mister Trial” Ferreira is a well known face on the Portuguese trials circuit. He holds five national titles and now runs a trials school which has honed the talents of some of the country’s best talents (including Joao & Daniel Sousa). Jorge is still one of the best riders in his country, finishing this season in fourth place in the Elite Portuguese Cup.

Jorge, who is a big fan of Tribal Zine, has sent us some photos of his new bike. He is now riding a Rockman Slate, with a limited edition anodised green frame. He decided to try and build the lightest bike possible, and his build tips the balance at just 8.565kg! Not bad! Photos and info below…
