Wideopen announced as official media partner on the search for PYGA’s UK Rider

PYGA Montainbikes have today announced a partnership with Wideopen UK Mountain Biking magazine on their search for a UK talent.

Back in December a competition was launched to search for PYGA’s UK sponsored rider, a talent hunt requiring aspiring riders to submit a short film edit of their rides to PYGA. PYGA are delighted to announce entries will now be submitted to Wideopen’s panel of experts who will decide who the 2021 ripper should be. 

Just a few weeks in there has already been an overwhelming response to the search, so PYGA recruited media partner and good friends, Wideopen, to help narrow down the selection and announce the ultimate winner.

A spokesperson on behalf of Wideopen said “PYGA told us back in December that due to Covid they are looking to support a UK Rider”. 

“With the pandemic ruining UK races this year, this gives some hope to riders who are finding it increasingly hard to get sponsorship, which we are keen to support.” 

To enter all riders need to do is send PYGA a MTB film edit of themselves, no more than one minute long, showing what they can do. Wideopen will then exclusively reveal the winning rider as voted for by their panel of experts.  

Riders who haven’t yet had chance to get out and film their skills need worry not as the closing date isn’t until midnight on Monday 1 February 2021.
