Wharncliffe Woods have been part of the Sheffield scene since day one. Now there’s a new generation of builders and riders taking it to the next level, led by the Clayspades crew. Max, James and Rob may not be household names, but you’ll recognise their trails. Their patch is known locally as ‘Wharncouver’, and for good reason. It’s steep, it’s fast & loose; there are tons of lines and some big hits. It’s attracted the attention of some big names, but the Clayspades lads are the first to ride every new section, and always in their own style.
They’re the real deal: all day every day they’re digging, sculpting, honing the trails to perfection and they’re happy to share the results. It’s guys like this that keep a scene alive. We thought it was time for the builders to take centre stage, so we gave the boys some bikes and teamed up with Escapade 7 to produce a short film. This is Clayspades.
