Freestyle Bike Night Mark Cross 25th August 2021

The third Freestyle Bike Night of the year at our Mark Cross, East Sussex branch on
Wednesday 25th August went down a treat!

With the popular Eastbourne bike night unfortunately clashing on the same evening we lost
some of our regular riders down to the coast. This was remedied however with a large
attendance from members of the East Grinsted based Top of the town bikers group who made a
full scale ride out for the first time! The road bike based group made the trip over to chat bikes,
eat burgers and generally have a good time. A couple of members even had a go at our new
August competition ‘The pillion passenger egg and spoon race’

Speaking of the egg and spoon race, the challenge was simple. Ride a slalom course laid out
next to our showroom, with a pillion on the back and yep you guessed it, that pillion had the job
of keeping an egg on a spoon for the whole course! We had some popular entries from regular
riders and new customers alike. After an early lead from Jim and Reg on the Yamaha fs1e the
lead was taken and held by Dan and Polly, Dan being an accomplished enduro rider pushed on
during the slalom, making keeping the egg in place a little tricky to say the least! After several
attempts Polly managed to keep the egg on the spoon and they took the win and the Pro Green
bike cleaner bundle as a prize.

We were also joined by several members of the Tunbridge Wells Motor Club who drove out to
us in an array of classic, race and rally cars. It was great to see some new customers enjoying
the atmosphere (and the food!) The evening was capped off by an enthusiastic doughnut
demonstration by Seaford based rally driver Barney Lower in his BMW Compact!

With light now becoming an issue for evening ride outs we may look at doing an open day
during the weekend for our next event. Watch this space for details!

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.
