Tom Gulson is a mountain biker, editor and film-maker, and a good friend of ours here at geebeebee media. Tom's also a good friend of the one and only Josh "Ratboy" Bryceland and given Tom's job as a broadcast editor on the world’s longest-running sports magazine TV series, Trans World Sport, he thought it would be a great idea to put a piece together on Josh, who rarely features in edits, despite being a great rider to film with. Always stylish, always having fun!
This short film isn't a typical mountain bike edit in the sense of all out riding action, but a profile of Josh and his roots, and is targeted at a much broader audience than solely DH-only mountain bikers. In Tom's own words, "I think it’s good to show mountain biking to the non mountain biking world. Apologies if the language is a bit ‘simple’ for some!"
Tom shot the feature at Wales' very own Revolution Bikepark, around their home town in the North West of England, where Josh got his first sponsorship through North West Mountain Bike Centre, and at the canal boatyard where Josh grew up. NWMTB's Andy Kyffin and Josh's dad, Iain, also got in front of the camera to shed a bit more light on one of the UK's top riders.
