Damon Watson - Spring 2010

The heart of the street scene lies in England. There are two main schools, personified by two emblematic riders. The first draws its inspiration from BMX, with manuals, tailwhips and spins being order of the day, and the figurehead of this school is, of course, Danny MacAskill, the rider who brought trials an unprecedented media audience. The second school, dubbed TGS on the forums, is 100% trial influenced and brings us more and more incredible taps, gaps and sidehops (from which it gets its name). This style of riding has, you could say, contributed to the newer styles of riding seen on the UCI circuit, with more and more riders focusing on these techniques.

The most emblematic rider of this scene is none other than Damon Watson, who had dropped off the radar of late (his last videos were in 2008: Damon Watson #7 and Damon Watson – a few clips before video 8!). He made his comeback in the spring of 2010 and is now riding for Ozonys, on a Curve 26. We showed a video of Damon on his 24" Marino in March last year… 3 minutes of pure adrenaline as Damon went bigger and more hardcore with every move! Damon has launched another internet bomb… a compilation of clips filmed over the spring. It opens with one of the most impressive sidehops we’ve ever seen… 61" and landed with what seems like the greatest of ease! Next he submits his Curve to a series of brutal punishments, including some absolute monster gaps. Not for the faint-hearted! TGS was in a bit of a decline lately, but could this new video mark a return to favour?
