Aidan Horn

Aidan Horn is annoying for two reasons: First, because he progresses at an abnormal rate, and second; cause’ he makes riders like me look rubbish.

The Whitley Bay local likes to through a bar spin or three on his 26” wheeled MTB and isn’t afraid of going upside down. He also has style. There needs to be more big bike riders like this.

For some more background on Aidan have a look at his catch up interview on ridestreet.
