The Bike Tour made its maiden voyage to Llanelli on the West Coast of Wales this weekend, supporting the new Animal store in Parc Trostre. The shows large footprint meant the Tour was given its very own VIP area, which saw some animated crowds squeeze the best out of the crew, leaving big grins on the riders faces and store staff loving the event.

Local dirt jump rider Adam Williams guest rode alongside Martyn and Blake during the lunchtime shows making for some hard fought competition between the riders for jump/trials superiority – too close to call!!
With the summer weather finally reappearing the show was treated to some great photo comp Twitter entries – this weeks winner went to Anne-Laurie Staples who caught Blake perfectly mid 360-Table. The Animal watch is on its way! Winner of the Diamondback Peak HD in our text competition went to Kai Rogers; enjoy the sweet new wheels!
Martyn and Blake now hook up with Sam Pilgrim and Rowan Johns for a week at Eurobike in Germany – good luck boys. This is the first weekend off for the Bike Tour since June 12th in Bury St Edmunds – it has been an amazing run of events with the finale at the Animal Windfest. So slip on your flip-flops and come show your support for the Tour at this great free festival at Sandbanks beach down in Poole, Dorset.
