Martyn Ashton | Meet The GMBN Presenters

Published on April 18th 2020


Martyn has more than two decades of experience at the forefront of mountain biking. A former World Expert Bike Trials Champion, he has also won numerous British BikeTrial national titles, has been inducted into the Mountain Biking UK Hall Of Fame, is a Guinness World Record Holder for the Mountain Bike High Jump, created his own innovative and influential frame designs, and masterminded and starred in more than a decade of a travelling extreme sports show – the Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour – touring the length and breadth of the UK. In late 2012, Martyn’s road bike trials exploits went viral with the Road Bike Party YouTube video, which has so far notched up over 18 million views and spawned two sequels featuring Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg, and Sam Pilgrim. Despite suffering a debilitating injury in 2013, Martyn continues to push boundaries and inspire with his straight-talking and honest positivity 🀘 ​@AshtonBikes πŸ‘‰ ​@gcn πŸ‘‰ Subscribe to GMBN: Pick up official GMBN merch in our store!
