Josh Bryceland doesn’t need much of an intro. He rides for the Santa Cruz Syndicate, previous world champ, one of the most stylish riders on the WC circuit and a brit.
He rides at home most of the time with Sam Dale, so while filming for the film Locals2 over the course of a few days I got some photos of the two mucking about. It's a bit of everything and more importantly just good fun...
Locals2 is supported to date by Pinkbike.com , J-Tech Suspension and Banshee Bikes. To get involved contact Jacob via his website (link at bottom).

Swift stop by his canal boat he will be moving into soon
Josh's whole family history is on the canals, so it's no surprise that he wants to live on them...
