Privateer to Pinkbike – Paul Aston – Part One

Downtime - The Mountain Bike Podcast show

Summary: <br> Paul Aston is someone who’s dedicated his life to bikes. From the early days of dirt jumping in the Midlands of the UK, all the way to racing Downhill World Cups as a privateer. Paul is probably best known for his time as European Technical Editor for Pinkbike, and that infamous ENVE wheel review. This episode is split into two parts. In part one, we chat about how he got into riding, his race career, and how it has taken him around the world.
