Ride Your Way!
Mountain biking is a sport dedicated to those who hate all kinds of limitations. You can pick your own trail, your own tricks and you can ride anything that makes you feel happy. It is just like in your life – you choose your goals and then you find a way of achieving them. In life or on a trail – you just Ride Your Way! That’s how Dartmoor sees mountain biking.

How About winning a top Enduro Bike?
Now the rad stuff. Dartmoor-Bikes are giving you the opportunity to win a top enduro bike, the Blackbird Evo 27.5. This fully-loaded version of the bike based on the Blackbird frame, equipped with RS Yari RC Boost fork and RS Monarch Plus Debonair shock is the perfect machine for all advanced enduro enthusiasts.

The Contest
To have a chance of winning all you have to do is show us your way of riding a bike by sending us a photo from #BehindTheBars like the ones below.


It’s simple. Get on your bike and show us your favorite spot by taking a shot from #BehindTheBars. No matter what bike you ride or what style of riding you prefer. Just show us what makes you feel great when you’re riding your bike.

Take your shot, and upload it to Instagram and make sure you've tagged your photo with both: #BehindTheBars and @Dartmoor_Bikes to become a part of the contest.

The deadline for uploading
#BehindTheBars contest shots is
June 11th, 2018

Winners will be announced on Pinkbike on June 12th, 2018
so be sure to check if you've won!

We will choose the best three photos and the most striking will win you the Dartmoor Blackbird Evo 27.5 bike. Prizes for the second and third winning shots are the Dartmoor Woods riding sets – a long sleeved jersey and shorts.

So grab your bike, load your camera and show us how you Ride Your Way!

We at Dartmoor-Bikes are always happy to see the views from behind your cockpit so please share your photos with us, not only during the contest.

Simply tag them on Instagram with #BehindTheBars and @Dartmoor_Bikes!

 It's when you take a picture that you like, and you put it on the line so others can see it. It's a hell of an idea.

I'm just sad that I can't win this bike. I get why Dartmoor would create a competition in this format (it totally makes sense and I don't blame them, they make nice bikes and if were in the market to buy a new one I'd certainly have a gander), but I'm not going to enter purely on the basis the instagram thing, It's not a big thing, simply a grumble that I have to pass up an opportunity to win a lovely bike because I don't want to join a large social media thing. In an era of data abuse scandals I don't think I'm alone. I realise I'm not offering an alternative or doing anything constructive to resolve this issue but then I'm not a marketing man. If I was I'd be able to buy this bike and make you buy one too without resorting to these new-fangled picture things. I do wish Dartmoor all the best as they make some great bikes and have a great name (it's a a great place (I'm going to put the word great in some more brackets)).

 As soon as I read "WE will CHOOSE the best 3 photos" I know it was a setup

 @Asmodai: "WE will choose"=/=random(someone picks what he or she likes vs. a computer that picks random people), do it fair, random pick and if the people that won did every step, they're a winner, fair chance for everyone.

picking winner is as fair as random
you put the effort you win

 @Asmodai: everyone does the same thing, goes out finds a nice spot and takes a picture, but not everyone in this world lives in a nice place or has a nice camera, that's what i was trying to say. But hey, their giveaway their rules, but it would have been nice if everyone had an equal chance, that's all. That's just my opinion, you have yours, let's just leave it at that. Have a nice day.

 @dudy: should there be participation awards at races too? Or is it still ok to say the first dude across the finish line won?

Good to know the best shot will win the bike and not a random fuzzy pic of a sidewalk taken with a potato.

 Bad thing about a contest like this is that people will win that have 1st a very expensive camera to shoot a super nice picture, 2nd knowledge on how to make it even better with photoshop and 3rd they live in a place where there's a super nice landscape. I love the place I live and ride my bike regularly. I just don't have those super nice spots you can see in the pictures above.
