They say ‘variety is the spice of life’, right? Well I’m more than happy to agree, especially when it comes to street riding and it's eager partakers. As landscapes and architecture change, we have to change with it, thus what we do on our bikes, and how we do it, continues to progress to the point that certain towns and cities are almost being reborn with a bigger variety of spots than ever before. It's much the same when it comes to young and upcoming riders who all of a sudden stand out from the crowd.
Those guys who were once the ‘hot up and comers’ just seem to be getting better and better, yet there’s always a new guy right around the corner. When it came to organising this trip to Prague, Czech Republic there were no rules.
First up I chose Bruno Hoffmann; someone I’ve known and admired for years and with his mix of technical and burly street riding, you can't go wrong. Next up was another easy choice; Alex Kennedy again needs no introduction riding-wise and no one is going to make a trip more chill than him. When it came to my final pick, I decided to change things up a bit and invite along an up and coming rider who lived a little closer to home, in fact, in the same city as myself. Greg Layden has been shredding locally for many years and it seemed right to bring him along. After all, you gotta spice it up, right?
