Since exploding onto the race scene in his mid-teens, Bernard Kerr has become one of the UK’s most stylish riders and hottest talents. We caught up with him at home in the Surrey Hills to find out all about his background in bikes, what motivates him and his attitude towards racing.
You can read our full cover feature in issue 346 of MBUK, out now. In the meantime, we’ve trawled the internet to find our favourite five videos of Bernard, which are all oozing with his customary steeze!

FULL Queenstown dreaming Edit – Parallax Media Killed it…might have to do another one soon?!
On a flying run down the Air DH track on Mont Chery, you’d have thought Bernard would have been at ease in the air. Unfortunately, a momentary lapse of concentration resulted in a massive off and he’s still recovering from a serious shoulder injury.
Fidget spinners were a thing recently (are they still a thing?) and Bernard loves to cash in on an opportunity! Combining amazing skills on the bike with pretty impressive spinning skills, Bernard’s not shy when it comes to impressing the kids…
Features Editor Alex calls the mellow rolling hills of Dorset home, but before he started on MBUK, he lived in The French Alpine town of Morzine for seven years. Here he developed a scary ability to make the steepest and gnarliest trails look like a walk in the park. Occasionally his speed caught up with him, resulting in several bone crunching crashes at World Cup downhill level. Since hanging up his racing shoes Al regularly clocks up a massive weekly mileage on his trail bike, so is one of our hardiest testers.
