Freestyle Bike Night and the Slow Bike Race

Another great gathering of customers new and old topped off with a little bit of competition! The ‘Slow Bike
Race’ was the highlight of our second Bike Night of the year. The premise was simple, ride as slowly as you
can over a short 10 metre course including a chicane without putting your feet down. Simple right Apparently not!

Early times were posted at around the 12 second mark with several of our regular enduro practice day riders competing on a variety of machines. Paul Leeson took an early lead on his Husqvarna FE350 holding off a challenge from Nat Levick on his Suzuki V-Strom (which with panniers only just fitted through the start gate!) Soon those times were pushed aside though by Freestyle Training chief instructor Steve Aylard who posted a time just over 25 seconds on his freshly refurbished 250 Suzuki. Even Steve was soon to be humbled though as a visit from the Sykes Harley Davidson crew saw local adventure, trials and mountain bike rider Craig Moir post a time of over a minute on the new Harley Davidson Pan America adventure bike! A truly impressive bike ridden extremely well by Craig! Final honours however went to ex Freestyle sale manager Simon Bird who made the course look very easy on his custom Yamaha YZ450 flat track bike which doesn’t even have a rear brake! Simon looked like he very well could have stopped completely, quite comfortably, for some time! Showing what an elite level trials rider can do on even an unsuitable machine. Simon’s time of 1 min 56 seconds demoralised everyone else and promptly put off any fresh challengers!

All in all, everyone enjoyed a great evening! Even if you weren’t taking part, it was very entertaining to watch and everyone enjoyed some top food from Freestyle Café. We will be trying to think of some new challenges for or bike nights to come in the following months so get practicing your car park skills and watch this space!

Freestyle Ambassador Programme

Welcome to the Freestyle Ambassador programme for 2022! We love to support local riders, racing is more than just a hobby, it’s a passion, a lifestyle, a dream! Whether you are an experienced rider, working during the week to get yourself onto that start line at the weekends, or a young rising star at the start of your journey to the top, we are here to help.

The Freestyle ambassador programme offers up to ten riders per year the chance to join our team and get access to a wealth of knowledge and experience alongside in store discounts, invites to events, rider training opportunities, the exclusive Freestyle graphics for your bike and kit and much more.

The amount of support you will receive is very much down to you… Think, how can you help us? Being a sponsored rider these days is not as simple as putting a sticker on your bike and getting free stuff. Personality, character and enthusiasm are just as important as race results and a good social media presence is easily equal to having a presence in the race paddock. Can you bring customers into our showrooms? Can you increase our online presence? Can you fly the Freestyle flag in a positive light? If you think the answer to these questions is yes or even if you think that you would like to give it your best efforts and find out, then the Freestyle ambassador programme could just be for you.

All selected riders will receive:

  • Freestyle race team graphics for their bike.
  • Free kit printing with the Freestyle branding.
  • 10% off selected clothing, parts and accessories in store.
  • Invite to annual Freestyle staff and rider fun days and team building events.
  • Limited access to rider training with Freestyle Training and our full time sponsored riders.
  • Direct contacts for technical support and bike set up advice.
  • The exclusive Freestyle Athlete baseball cap.

The support is not limited there but it’s in your hands… Previous ambassadors have proved themselves and stepped up to become full sponsored riders!

Examples of what previous ambassadors have done for us:

  • Detailed race reports with photos.
  • Increase our social media following by tagging Freestyle in posts, stories etc.
  • Talk to people in the paddock, tell them about Freestyle, hand out limited discount vouchers with your exclusive rider code.
  • Support our events by attending our monthly bike nights and practice days. Why not bring your bike along to show it off.
  • If you have contacts that are looking for bikes, clothing, training, parts then send them in to see us.
  • Use your imagination!

Again this opportunity is for rising stars and weekend warriors alike! Even if you never thought you would be sponsored but love your racing and could use some extra support then this could be for you.
