We bring you the first episode of the new #RideYourWay video series showing the desire and passion of people who are riding their way through the life together with us. Dartmoor-Bikes is about riding and giving everyone the opportunity to explore the path they wish to ride in their own way and having the bike to do this.

Szymon Godziek is a perfect example of the person who is showing that dreams can come true, no matter how difficult it may look like. His small home village is located just about half an hour drive from us. We met back in 2008 when he was just 17 and starting his career, and we were just about to start pushing the brand ahead. This video shows how things never stay the same. We develop and move on, but the passion stays strong. Here is an example of a rider who has grown with us and shows desire to achieve his goals. We gathered here some of the best clips from 2013 season and Szymon explain the life of the professional athlete. His style was influenced by the people he rides with and his experience on a bike. It doesn't matter who they are, riders at his local jump spot or pros at the biggest comps, they all are the same to him.

Sometimes in life we choose a new path and so Szymon did now, but friends stay friends. We will show you more of our friends from the #RideYourWay family in the next webisodes, so stay tuned as we go ahead with our new projects.

 wow im super surprised by this...i assumed he would be going to a more internationally known company that would be able to help shine a much bigger light on his career. his bike looks great but i mean...i had to click on "mtb hardtail" and then scroll alllll the way to the bottom of the page to get to "gravity." this guy deserves a jump up...not a side step.

"Happy to announce that I will be riding on Bergamont Bicycles!!

At the moment I'm testing the hardtail here in California. Stoked on this bike and on aluminium frame! Fcking stoked on downhill bikes - finally I will be able to compete at Red Bull Rampage! check out the website
Also happy that my good friend Simon Kirchmann is my teammate now!"

It's gonna be a sick year!"

 Didn't Bergamont sponsor Kirill "Benderoni" Churbanov and his trip to Rampage last year?
We all know how that ended up... Smile
I really hope to see Godziek at Rampage.
However, I will understand if he chooses not to got there.
Rampage is just so different from what Godziek is used to.
Keep up the good work, Szymon!
