Meet the Freeride UK Athletes and Ambassadors. Some of the best up-and-coming UK names to watch out for.

Pro-Athletes

Larn Baldwin

After taking 2nd overall in the 2018 Amateur category of the UK’s DMR Dirt Wars FMB Bronze National Series, including a first-place podium at Freddy’s Yard, Larn continues to push his limits in his pursuit for pro-category glory in the 2021 season.

Based out of Hemel Hempstead UK, the 19 year-old carpenter has battled back from injury during the 2019 season to take a 2nd and 4th in the limited events held during the 2020 season to finish 3rd overall.

His time off the bike in 2019 enabled him to develop and build his own riding spot near his home, where he spends some of his time growing his bag of tricks.

With the backing of local business Emtrex garms, Freeride UK are proud to also be backing him with parts from Title MTB, in his next riding chapter.

Tom Walsh

Hailing from Sherburn in Elmet, Leeds, Tom Walsh is our first Freerider to join the Freeride UK team. With 15 years of riding under his belt, Tom continues to showcase his Freeride and Dirt Jump skills around the country including Nottingham and Woburn Sands, as well as more local trails at Leeds Urban Bike Park.

Up until it’s cancellation due to the pandemic, Tom was set to attend his first Fest Event at Huckfest in 2020, and now has his sights firmly set on attending future Fest events. 2021 will also see Tom return to competitive downhill racing, with events including Gravity Events UK series amongst his goals.

With existing support from Pinned Attire, the Bikes College, Stux Gloves and VXS Gymwear, we are so stoked to welcome Tom to the Freeride UK team and can’t wait to see where this next chapter of his riding takes him.
