There is no doubt about it, Martyn Ashton is an absolute legend. Not just of cycling, but of life itself.
If you’ve followed Martyn Ashton’s story, you’ll remember hearing the news back in September of 2013 of his tragic accident during a trials demonstration at the Silverstone Moto GP. Following his life-changing injury that came about halfway through filming his latest video, Ashton brought in some assistance to get Road Bike Party 2 finished. And the result was spectacular. Then came the inspirational video of Martyn Ashton riding again.
Back in Issue #101 of Singletrack Magazine, Chipps published a superb piece about Martyn Ashton’s life and his rise to fame as one of the world’s best trials riders. If you get the chance, you must read it online here.
Taking a look at Ashton’s riding career, Trans World Sport has just published this short video documentary. Grab yourself a cuppa, get comfortable, and enjoy this inspiration video on the legend himself.
