UK ODI riders, Matt Roe, Becci Skelton, Glen Coe and Harry Schofield took advantage of the change to lockdown rules. Once lockdown restrictions were lifted they headed to Bike Park Wales for some fun on the trails. Here’s what they got up to straight outta lockdown.

A few false starts due to changing restrictions didn’t deter us! We waited for good news from the UK Government’s daily briefings. Fast forward to April this year and the word came through from No.10 that restrictions would be lifted on May 17th so we were on! Our plan immediately swung into action with emails, texts and phone calls to all involved.
Four of ODI Grips UK riders, Matt Roe, Becci Skelton, Glen Coe and Harry Schofield descended on Bike Park Wales at the beginning of June. Met by our film crew headed up by Sandy Plenty (SP Films) their brief was to have fun riding together. Their different styles worked well together.
So here it is, we are pleased to bring you Straight Outta Lockdown, celebrating the joy of unrestricted riding after spending 15 long months in what, at times, seemed like being incarcerated in solitary confinement. Enjoy the Freedom!ODI
