Blake Samson | Meet The GMBN Presenters

Published on August 1st 2020


Born in Zimbabwe but now resident in the Isle of Wight, UK, Blake has travelled the world as a pro rider competing in the world’s premier dirt jump and slopestyle competitions. Despite his world-class dirt heritage, he’s an incredible all-rounder who is equally at home charging down mountains as he is pulling 360 tucks or flip-whips. Think fast and fun. But wherever his tyres take him, he does it all with an infectious sense of fun which is proof, if any were needed, that for Blake riding is a way of life. Blake has also been a long-time friend of Martyn’s, having been a big part of his travelling extreme sports show – the Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour – touring the length and breadth of the UK.
