Grind wizard Scott Ditchburn is part of the Pro teams at the Shadow Conspiracy and Subrosa – his current ride features his signature Subrosa ‘Balum’ 21” frame, combined with ‘Villicus’ fork, ‘Bitchin’’ cranks, four-piece bars, ‘Forever’ stem, and Shadow grips, barends, headset, seat, pedals and sprocket. Among his other sponsors are Lotek and The Trip.
In 2011, following his victories in a number of UK street jams, it was announced that Scott would also be part of the new BMX team at Chain Reaction Cycles. Later in the year, he also joined up with Green Films, and a welcome edit from Rampworx cemented his reputation as the king of grinds to hard 360s.
Despite suffering from a number of injuries during his first year with CRC, he put out an excellent team edit in 2013, in which he destroyed a load of rails in Long Beach, California. And if you want any more proof that the man knows his way around a handrail, check out the unique grind combos in his section in DUB’s ‘Homegrown’ from 2014.
His raw, ride-anything style of street riding has also appeared in a number of videos for Subrosa – an awesome section filmed in the USA and Spain from the NORA Cup-nominated ‘Get Used to It’ from 2013 is typical, featuring huge barspins, gaps and drops to tech combos that could go on and on.
