Luke Wyatt

Good park and trails MTBs are few and far between in Devon, especially those in their teenage years. Luke Wyatt is one of them.

The Paignton local shreds at any spot he rides, whatever he rides... His bike is often barely functional or completely un-ridable, in which case he will hop on to whatever bike is available and ride it like its his own.

Luke’s care free attitude means he often rides on the edge, which is exciting to watch and explains his rapid level of progression. Give him a few years and he’ll be twice as good for sure.
