Daryl Brown

The photo you see on your left is one of the most stretched Indian Airs you’ll ever see. Extending tricks to their limit is one of Daryl Browns fortes.

Daryl made the podium of every UK comp he entered in the past three years, a testament to his astonishing level of talent and consistency. It comes as little surprise that he got on a bike before he could even walk.

In 2012, amongst a busy UK and international competition schedule, Daryl is hoping to break two World records: Highest MTB air out of a quarter and highest ramp to ramp jump.

Good luck (not that you’ll need it).
