One of Sheffield’s top MTB street riders, Tom Kilcoyne, made his mark with the killer Steeze Bikes edit released at the start of the year. He has unbelievable technical skill and pulls tricks on a MTB that many can’t do on 20’ wheels. I’m sure spending time with Black Market rider Matt Jamieson didn’t exactly do any harm. At his rate of progression I can see him achieving big things on his bike in the near future.
