Today sees the release of ‘Tundra Trial’, a film that sees multiple world-champion motorcycle trials rider
Dougie Lampkin taking on some of the most challenging terrain in the world as he rides his bike on and
over the ice and snow of Lapland in the Arctic Circle.
A combination of ice features, fallen trees, snow-covered tracks and the iconic Snow Village, coupled
with inhospitable temperatures, provide a rather different set of challenges for the motorsport legend.
Under the watchful direction of Stu Thomson, whose recent film ‘The Ridge’ has close to 25 million views
on YouTube, ‘Tundra Trial’ showcases the spectacular Finnish landscape and Dougie’s incredible riding.
Speaking of the project, Dougie says, “ I’ve been riding for a lot of years now in so many countries, on so
many different types of terrain, but I have never ridden on ice and snow. I’ve always pushed myself in
my career and now that I am not riding in so many competitions, this was the perfect chance to once
again take me out of my comfort zone…and how!”
