Dougie Lampkin Tours UK Renthal facilities aboard his Gas Gas Trials Bike

Ever wonder what’s going on behind the walls of the Renthal facilities in Stockport, UK?

Curious minds will likely be appeased by the latest video attached above from Renthal – but it’s truly unique, considering viewers get to tour the company’s UK facilities with 12-time FIM World Trials Champion Dougie Lampkin.

Lampkin tours Renthal with a camera crew, and even provides some POV footage from aboard the Brit’s Gas Gas TXT 280 Pro trials bike.

This footage shows Dougie’s raw talent, solidifying why he has 12 World Trials Championship – five indoors, and seven outdoors.

Although the Trial season wrapped up, he remains busy during the off months. Besides the Renthal video, his latest appearances were in Spain last month; Lampkin spent two weeks there as part of Nissan’s light commercial vehicle launch. And of course, Lampkin was showing his Trials skills.
