Karen Reynolds wins Martyn Ashton signed jersey

22 Jul

Last week, ITV’s “Real Stories With Ranvir Singh” featured the incredible narrative of Martyn Ashton’s comeback from adversity following his life changing accident. The programme saw Martyn talk about the trials and tribulations of life post-injury and demonstrated his infectious determination to conquer all new challenges.

To celebrate, we ran an online competition to win a legendary piece of mountain biking memorabilia; the very shirt worn by Martyn Ashton in his “Down Not Out” video, signed by the man himself.

Winning the signed jersey

Answering a simple question was all it took to enter and, as anticipated, we were inundated with responses from Martyn Ashton fans. With over 300 correct answers, choosing the winner had to go to a good old traditional draw. Out of all the correct responses, the lucky winner picked at random was Karen Reynolds.

Of course we contacted Karen right away to get her reaction:

"This is amazing, Martyn is so inspirational! I used to attend the Animal bike shows in Falmouth so saw Martyn a couple of times before his accident and have followed his progress since. How does it feel to have won? Well it is just crazy."

We’re stoked that the winner is such a longtime Martyn Ashton fan. Along with the very special prize that is Martyn’s signed jersey, we thought we’d send Karen a few extra Animal goodies to see her through the summer.

A massive thank you to everyone who entered the comp, we've loved reading your comments and congratulations again to Karen on claiming the win!
