“So the plan was to hook up with Lima and go on a short three day trip to some of the UK’s finest trail spots, however the great British weather had other plans. The first day of the trip was a treat and we thought we were on to a fine thing, we spent the first part of the day at Lima’s local spot and we got a lot done fast so decided to hit up Jay Aliano. We were in luck Jay was already planning to have a session that evening so we jumped in the van made the three hour trip over to Jay’s place for a chilled evening session with an awesome sunset! Little did we know that would be our last trails session of the trip as upon waking the following morning the weather had indeed changed and despite driving three hours south in an attempt to dodge the rain, we were not successful! However, it soon became apparent that we still had plenty of footage to put this edit together. It is pretty amazing that in the short time we were at Lima’s spot he managed to produce the clips in this edit with ease and just did his thing, as Lima does.” — Ryan Hallett

Part one featured Verde’s Matt Priest. You can check out what went down in that edit out here.
“The first time I saw MJ (Michael Jordan) ride was a few years back now, but I definitely remember it. He fully killed it at a local jam near me. I’ve been a fan of his riding from there on in, so having him join Verde in the UK is going to be rad. With his unique, crazy but classic style, and his general demeanor we’re in for some good times indeed. Welcome to the team buddy!” — Martyn Tambling
