Took my 12 year old to Revolution Bike Park on Friday for some practise for his first up and coming DH racing this year, it seemed quite a special day signing on turned round and Danny Hart was there, went out side to the car and Joe Smith, Matt Simonds, Elliot Heap and Emyr Davis was parked by us, it was like our British DH Champs.



He rode several of the tracks his fav was Ghetto and main line and to my surprise he found the Freeride track a little dull, he did make one mistake as you come to the finishing area there is a gap jump just before a wooden board walk jump, as he came the gap jump he saw Danny Hart standing on the side of the track and thought DO IT, well he was going a touch to slow and cased it, he was only 6" short but it was plums and a crossbar moment and then caught his mouth on the bars but it was next to nothing bit of a bleeding mouth but stayed on which Danny commented on that he was amazed he hadn't fallen off, but fair play it didn't slow him down and it's one way how to get noticed by two times world champ.

Cheers Dude one of the most annoying things with him is he thinks
he isn't very good, needs to get his head in the right place and when it is he's amazing.

Revs is a sick venue, have rode there loads. Surprised you didn’t run into Josh and the 50:1 boys up there too sending the new jump line.

Fair play if he was hitting Ghetto up too, that and Ffar side are some of the hardest tracks in the UK (IMO)

He rode the main line a few times but found some of it a bit techie for him, he kept going on a big rock slab going down step Shocked

Everyone was warned to keep away from 50:1 or they would be banned from Revs, not sure if that applied to the pro's Very Happy to much for the boy as yet but you can see it in his face I'm going to do that Twisted Evil

Fine line to balance though, believe you're not any good to the point where you'll have the mindset to consistently improve and also having enough confidence to commit to stuff. . . He seems to be doing that well.

What a brilliant day it must have been for him, and for you also, a true bonding experience I'm sure and a source of lasting memories.

Obviously a very confident fella, good luck to him. Very Happy
