Dear Santa


Can I have a trials bike just like Dougie Lampkin's, please?

While watching this brand new film a few things occurred to me.

1. I like Dougie Lampkin. 12 x World champion Yorkshireman.
2. This is a better advert for trials bikes than it is for 'energy' drinks.
3. This looks a lot like Danny MacAskill's films. Then the credits rolled and it's made by Stu Thomson, the director of many of the MacAskill films.
4. I like Finland.
5. And huskies.
6. I've never met a Finn I didn't like.
7. I have no idea what make his bike is, but it looks great with black rims.
8. That song is somewhat repetitive. G

UPDATE: Click it onto big screen and choose HD (if your internet is up to it) on the little icons in the corner.

I agree with all that except N°2, the best advert for trials would be the bbc bringing back Kickstart/Junior Kickstart. Bloody Marvellous!

+1 for Kickstart but only if Peter Purves commentates and they use proper trials bikes with seats and strictly no lycra.

I wonder if the Huskies are thinking 'ok mate, now trying doing it on a Greeves Scottish'.

It's not the bike it's the rider! Put him on anything and he'd be brilliant

Of course he's brilliant (no prizes for that) but that wasn't my point.
