Incredible stunts and amazing tricks all completed on a £15,000 Colnago C59 Italia? It can only be a Road Bike Party! Lycra-clad trials legend Martyn Ashton’s first Road Bike Party was a YouTube sensation, so a sequel HAD to be made, bigger and better than before! Martyn was in the middle of filming when his life was transformed by an accident during a trials display which has left him paralysed from the waist down. Courage, determination and great friends have helped Martyn to complete his vision for what a Road Bike Party is.

Road Bike Party 2 features special guest appearances from two trials riding and YouTube legends, and music from Catfish and the Bottlemen with “Rango” (http://gcn.eu/1gVfrB5) and Capella.

In the words of Mr Ashton, “Party on”!

No bikes were harmed in the making of this film.

The grand tours could really use more water slides.

Danny’s backwards downhill front wheelie…no words.

THAT.WAS.AWESOME!!!!!

Proof that great riders are great regardless of what bike they are riding.

Devin - 12/11/13 - 12:11am

Unreal. That is INCREDIBLE!

Between that and Chris Akrigg’s full suspension trials videos, it just goes to show that it’s always the rider that’s limited- not the bike.

Get better well Martyn, we all want to see a third installment!

Sick stuff. Goosebumps.
