A bit of banter from the BDS at Fort William and for anyone that was snoozing here is the link to the Vital track walk slideshow from the first world cup where Danny got called out for the bulk practice he does at Fort William every year.

Added a new video The Revolution Bike Park Gets the 50to01 Treatment 5/8/2019 3:56 PM

The Welsh hills provide the perfect playground for the Fabric crew to join us for a day sessioning the popular and hidden lines at Revolution Bike Park. With slopestyle rider Tom Isted and legendary BMX rider Mike 'Jersey' Taylor making the trip, it was all smiles. Warming up on the jump line, the boys quickly got into their rhythm. Sending flips and sneaky gaps before ducking down into the woods for some technical trail smashing and bashing. The afternoon brought a session in the well-hidden quarry overlooking the bike park. The boys took to sending some jump lines which brought the best out of everyone. Another one in the bag!

Added a new video Remy Morton's South Island Shred Tour 5/6/2019 2:31 PM

At the end of March, the first round of CRANKWORX 2019 was held in ROTORUA, New Zealand. Joining COMMENCAL in December 2018, Australian rider Remy Morton participated in one of his first competitions wearing his new colours. We were present at the event and so decided to profit from our stay to better discover the Islands and spend a few days riding with Remy himself. For a week, we travelled with him to legendary spots in New Zealand, COMMENCAL offices in Christchurch and its beautiful Adventure Park, through the hills of Wanaka and Skyline Queenstown. It was on Rude Rock at Coronet Peak that our journey ended with an epic golden sunrise.

Added a new video In The Blink: Episode 4 - Community 5/2/2019 2:38 PM

Ask almost any mountain biker what they enjoy most about the sport and they'll likely give you the same answer: riding with friends. The short-of-breath chats on the climbs, the hoots and hollers of a joyous descent, cracking a beer and toasting to a good ride while kicking back on the tailgate. These are the moments that define us as mountain bikers, when we enjoy the connection to each other as well as the environment around us. They're also the moments we sought to capture in the Community segment of Return to Earth

For some people home doesn't always have the best trails. Luca Cometti is not some people. Littered around San Diego you'll find pump tracks, slalom tracks, and flow trails. Plus if you're like Luca and have the hookup you've also got Strait Acres, Kyle Straits personal compound.

What differences have you spotted? The only thing I can see that is slightly different is the pivot hardware

To be fair I did say overall and the seasons not over... But yeah I concede, I was banking on Bruni not being a hypocrite. The real question now is will any teams scramble to have a mullet bike ready for Fort William like after the Syndicate dominated ... more »

From the couple of Instagram stories I've seen and a quick google of the weather it looks like it could be good racing conditions. Purely internet speculation though

Added a new video Qualifying Did Not Go to Plan for the Syndicate 4/27/2019 8:10 PM

For the first time in his 20 year career Greg Minnaar misses out on the main show after some unexpected rain made the track lethal, leading to a crash and a twisted front end... putting him back in 63rd place. 

Loris kept the dream alive with an amazing 5th place, keeping it upright amongst the chaos. What will tomorrow bring?

The Syndicate enters into the coil vs air debate.

Added a new video The Syndicate Enters into the Coil vs Air Debate 4/26/2019 11:50 PM

Coil vs Air, it's a never ending debate and something that riders tend to swap out frequently.

The Syndicate have always leaned towards coil due to the progressive nature of the V10, but lately we've started to lean towards the bigger air can of the Float X2.

Tune in and see what everyones thoughts are, including a Friday morning, pre-practice puzzle with Jordi and Loris for good measure.
