PRIVATEER 161 Shred! Matt Stuttard, Vital RAW 3

Matt Stuttard rallies his Privateer 161 trail bike through some wet, rowdy UK tracks.

The first track Matt drops into is effectively a hiking trail that rain water has run down for decades. Now it's just a trench down to bedrock with just enough clearance to fit a bike (and a tall person like Matt).
Further down the trail turns into savage, natural rock steps hidden under the leaves. High-speed rebound got turned up a few clicks to help with the constant hammer.
We then headed to some rough high-speed runs where the 2x British Enduro champ does a lot of his EWS training.
Shot in West Yorkshire on a surprisingly sunny day, the past few weeks up there have been consistently rainy and grim, so we were lucky not to get soggy.
