Welcome to another story of Dartmoor riders whose life is guided by their bikes through the courses of their own backyards. These 2 youngbloods - Daniel Zawistowski and Oskar Macuk are as different and at the same time as similar as their Two6Players are. Both of them are our factory test riders coming from the small towns where they had to fight very hard to make their dirt jumping dreams come true. Do you want to know them better and find out what is pushing them ahead? Check out the latest part of #RideYourWay series above and tell us What Is Your Motivation for Riding Forward?

  Super-Oskar at his homespot

Oskar is 20 years old rider coming from Gryfino, next to Szczecin, he started building his first trails around 8 years ago. He is focused on slopestyle riding because it gives him all the best that gravity mountain biking can give you. As there is no one else like him in the neighbourhood, Oskar inspired by Bear Grylls spends most of his time in the woods riding and digging alone. This gives him unlimited possibilities to make his bike visions and dreams come true. Two years ago he met people from the Ride Your Way family who noticed his strong passion towards mountain biking and that is how his adventure with the Dartmoor team started, which gives a lot of benefits for both parties. "It is also very important for me to support Dartmoor which is local polish brand" - Oskar says. Now, Oskar is developing his new idea to create a mobile dirt jumping spot and promote the sport at the local exhibits throughout the Polish towns. But as he says his biggest bike achievement so far was teaching his girlfriend how to shape and fix his landings in the woods, so he can spend more and more time in the air now!

18-year-old Daniel lives in a small town called Małkinia Górna, which is located pretty close to Polish capital - Warsaw. He started mountain biking 6 years ago, when he met some older riders. Most of them left their local team as the time went by and now there is only one left who has become Daniel's best friend. They ride, travel, build and enjoy the life together. As he says co-operation with Dartmoor Bikes gives him great experience and helps to develop bike skills and talents. Unfortunately Daniel has a shoulder injury at the moment and some people say after his holiday to Amsterdam he is trying some natural healing methods. Keep calm and heal quick (or heel kick) bro!

Enjoy another #RideYourWay episode and have a look at the pictures below taken at the spots built by Oskar and Daniel.

 I work with a Polish guy. From what I gather, his english isn't brilliant, the country isn't in a great place at the moment. The average income is low and so is the buying power - so there are a lot of bored kids out there (touched on it in the video - said you can either play football or sit). A lot of the kids get involved in football hooliganism, fighting and gang culture and its sad really. Good on these kids for doing something really positive and having the courage to be different and carve their own path tup

 I can't find the dartmoor 26 player frame in that Miami vice color in the US. I can only get the 2014 boring colors black, red and petrol. Can someone tell me where I can buy the older colors?
