From an undisclosed location in the deepest darkest parts of the Home Counties jungle, Sam Reynolds invites you to the ‘Quarry’- The perfect playground for bikes.
An old abandoned quarry became a blank canvas for Sam and his mates to design what ever they liked: “My friend Si told me he had met the owner and somehow persuaded him to let us build in there! I really loved the place.”
Sam painstakingly built over 3 months battling against the English winter, local moto kids destroying the jumps and spending days alone in a digger losing his mind listening to The Archers.
“It was awesome to build some big jumps near me as we only really get to hit stuff like that on the FEST series. I love building and experimenting with new jumps so it was an awesome project and I can’t wait to build more!”
When the job was done Sam called in a crew. Local ripper Darryl Brown, Clemens ‘C-dog, C-zilla’ Kaudela and his brother Tom were all on hand to send it.
This may also be the first MTB session in history to feature a trophy truck tow assist. Sam explains: “I think Casey Currie’s truck was over for Goodwood FOS and the guys at Monster had the wicked idea to get it down to play in the Quarry, but then I wondered if it could help me get more speed into the big hip and it turned out to be sick. I held onto the roll cage through the window and it was strangely really chill. It’s so loud, it was hard to judge speed and I ended up going way faster than I wanted. It was wicked!”
“Huge thanks to Si and Chris too for the help and support on the build, couldn’t have done it without you boys, cheers!”
Make sure you stay till the end to watch the epic finale.
