Josh Bryceland

Poynton, UK

Height: 6'2"/188cm
Date of Birth: 23rd March 1990

Since he was tiny Josh had always wanted to race motocross like his Dad.  But he could only ride his motorbike at the weekend, so started riding mountain bikes around on week days, making engine noises!

When he was 5 years old Josh watched the MBUK video "Dirt" and from then on Steve Peat, Rob Warner, Jason McRoy and Will Longden became his heroes.  Steve soon went on to become Josh's mentor, helping him progress in DH racing and becoming instrumental in his Junior World Cup and World Championships wins.

Josh has continued to mature (if that could be the right word) into one of the most naturally gifted riders on the elite circuit. His biggest days are still to come...
