Words: Tom Caldwell



I’ve wanted to shoot something proper with Alex for a while now after seeing the wild shapes and slides he posts on Instagram. After getting to know him on the EWS circuit the past few seasons, we recently slotted in a few days whilst he was home to hit up his local North Wales spots and see what we could put together, armed with the pan-and-zoomer and fisheye, along with some disposable Amazon specials. A passion project on both sides in the dry summer conditions. This is the Alex Storr x Tommy C collab, enjoy.

Shooting on the disposable is incredibly fun, just as much fun as last time I had one years ago. This is probably one of the best shots I got. One click and one flash, patience and your prediction of rider shape is key, which is why I think it’s so much fun.

Lunch break after a big morning graft at Llangollen, Alex wanted a coffee of some sort to boost the energy levels, but somehow came back with this frappa-dappa-cino thing covered in cream and glitter.

Turning down whilst I’m looking up on some off piste Llangollen bits.

Surprisingly dry and loose in areas, snaking around the trees.

 I hope he has a tire sponsor. That style of riding looks expensive otherwise.

 Riding was epic and the boy ca certainly shred, but you have to admit Caldwell is a genius. Has he ever made a bad edit? They always get me pumped!

 That’s how freeride videos use to feel! Brings a 2003 vibe with the way it was edited and track used. Makes me wanna ride.
