I have known Scott Alleyn for well over 10 years now, I got a chance to sit down and talk to him about the 2010 riding season and what his plans are for this coming season.Interview and pics of Scott's new Dartmoor bike inside
,Who are you
I am Scott Alleyn, I grew up just outside of Kimberley, BC on an acreage. I am 21 and I like to ride 26" bikes down mountains or on sculpted dirt piles.What other sports are you into
Biking is the only sport that I find fun enough to keep doing.When did you start riding
I started riding when I was 6 but I got my first decent bike when I was 12, it was a 2001 Kona Roast, that's when I remember starting to build ladder bridges and big drops to pinner flat landings. Ever since then, I just kept progressing. How was the '09 season
As far as 2009 goes I just biked a lot and learned some new tricks, I really didn't travel as much as I wanted too. I went to Creston for the Goat Style bike jam and helped build it, then rode it. That competition is always a blast. I also did some filming for a 2009 promo filmed and edited by Nic Genovese, What makes you try to push your limits
When you learn a new trick you just get this awesome feeling, so I try to push myself to keep getting that feeling.When building dirt jumps, what makes you come back day after day
When I am building jumps I just keep thinking about how sick and fun it'll be to ride this jump once I finish it. Then once I am finished, I ride it and it always turns out to be worth it.What's your favorite place to ride
My old jumps that were torn down when my parents sold their house.What are your goals for 2010
For 2010 I would like to travel a ton and enter some bigger competitions, such as Creston Goatstyle, Teva Mountain Games and Crankworx Colorado. I also hope to get a part in a bike film.Any shout outs and thank yous
I would like to thank Dartmoor Bikes for hooking me up with my new ride, they are just branching out into North America this year. Go check out their site here

Dartmoor also have a pinkbike account.
2010 website for Dartmoor will be up soon aswell.
My bike has the 09 fevers- slightly thinner and they out preformed my Dark cycles arachnid.
you can also check out Dartmoor related talks on www.rotorburn.com under the 4x/street section.
Oh and enjoy the pedals: I went from the Dark cycle ara's to the fevers: much more comfortable for a pedal not being used for the ultimate grip situation.
See how the hose is rapped round the head tube once is that for being able to do double bar spins without snaping the brake hose?
Had no issues with dartmoor stuff in australia from street to downhill use.
