Self-funded and self-built, the opening session of the 50to01 x Revolution Bike Park line was a proud moment for all involved, so get planning a trip to be hitting this line come spring time. Revolution bike park is going above and beyond, opening up opportunities in the UK like never before...

 I can't wait to roll down the middle of that line staring at the giant jumps and shaking my head in disbelief before trying the smallest gap and casing like a high powered lawyer.
  • + 9
 Haha, exactly what I was thinking, amazing how these guys can make a huuuuge jump look almost small / easy, that is until you take a look yourself!

Fair play to the guys that can hit this line and get through it.
  • + 3
 @Racer951: serious. I remember going to whistler and hitting crab apple for the first time...huuuuuge compared to what they look like in the videos with kids back flipping them...
  • + 39
 Ok, at 1:35 Ratty is in no way speaking English.
  • + 3
 @nvranka: Yeah...I rode up and just sort of cased the first one on Crabapple and the braking bumps down the back were like a cliff drop that wanted to rip my hands off the bars. Hah
  • + 4
 @vicrider: ...no shit! I swear I can hardly tell what he's talking about 99.9% of the time. They need close captions or a translator.
  • + 8
 @vicrider: Ok, let me translate - "Mental, it's been sounds all through January and middle of February we get a snow day, it's all just about riding though, give or take." My experience growing up in Aus where no-one pronounces the entirety of words is proving useful.
  • + 24
 @vicrider: From a Northern Monkey - "Mental, its bin (been) sound all through January and middle of February we've got a snow day...still just about rideable......give or take".

You think that's bad, if you ever get the chance to ride at Danny Harts descend bike park you get lads from all over the country. Manchester, Newcastle, deepest darkest Yorkshire, Scotland and Wales. Its like something out of Star Wars.

 Looks sick. Can't wait to grow a pair big enough to ride it with... as a foot note I would properly enjoy a 50to01 Spotify playlist.
  • + 16
 Seconded. @LadLife - get on it son!
  • + 26
 That is a shout. 50-01 spotify playlist for the biking road trips!
  • + 1
 totally, it would be so awesome, they always pick such good music
  • + 26
 This looks mint. Awesome jumps, cool beat and Ratboy stoked to ride more than ever. Congrats lads on this project. I wish I could ride it \m/
  • + 18
 Yep. Couldn't help but think the Rat looks far happier here riding with his mates than any of the interviews from the WC last year.
  • + 3
 @corvus1: life goals
  • + 23
 Subtitles definitely needed. I really made an effort to understand rat boy. I think he is having a bit of fun with us now. Dope riding!
  • + 7
 My thoughts exactly
  • + 7
 Well, I catched almost half of what he said -- that's a 45 % increase compared as before! Wink
  • + 7
 Imagine how hard has to try the rest of the world.... xD
  • + 8
 @cool3: But 45% of the time you understand everytime.
  • + 2
 @MielOtxin: Well, I'm French, so I don't think I have any advantage on you... Wink Except that I've been living in Canada for 32 years. Big Grin
  • + 1
 My phones speaker is dodgy so I didn't understand a word.
  • + 1
 lol at 1.35 he says Mental its been sound all through January then it gets to middle Feb and get a snow day still just about rideable give or take
  • + 8
 That lads easy to understand I don't know what everybody's problem is.
  • + 2
 @cool3: It's called English
  • + 16
 The 50:01 boys are continuing to prove that the 5010 is the most underrated rig in Santa Cruz's lineup.
  • + 2
 Jason745 agreed watched an interview where ratboy says his favourite bike in sc line ups a 5010
  • + 2
 most fun bike ever
  • - 1
 YUP! Crazy that Rat can hit the same line on a DH bike that Loose hits on a 5010. I'm not sure if that says more about Loose or Santa Cruz.
  • + 2
 One of them was riding his 2015 worlds bike, red with the turquoise clouds. best looking bike ever
  • + 1
 @jaame: craig evans borrows rats bikes from time to time
  • + 2
 Loose has to have the most rode 5010 ever! Dude sails it everywhere
  • + 1
 @jaame: that's James the guy who owns revs it's his bike he got it off rat
  • + 1
 I would love to have my nomad done that colour, but it just wouldn't look good on that shape of frame

 Does "Spring" ever come in England?
  • + 145
 Yeah, the mud gets warmer.
  • + 1
 @rsbromley: That was a good one! LMFAO!!!
  • + 4
 It's Wales. What is this spring you speak of?
  • + 2
 @Owaind: I think spring is that 5 minutes of blue sky you see once? I think that is it. Spent most of November in Wales (Corris) Didn't get a chance to ride, but did a lot of hiking and can I say, holy crap, your trails are steep. Also I saw two (mostly) sunny days. They day I got there. And the day I left. Technically, I think the day I got there it was only sunny in England (Birmingham). Beautiful place though. itching to go back with time to ride. Reminded me a lot of western Washington state, where I grew up, but somehow both more wild and more pastoral.
  • + 8
 I feel sorry for the 'merican's trying to understand Ratboy, luckily Stoked AF translates to any language. That is a big line ! I'd love a tow in !
  • + 2
 I struggle to understand him! Does he speak like that because it's his accent or he's just a stoner?
  • + 0
 @decoxx: I couldn't comment on his flavour of smoke but his accent doesn't help
  • + 11
 I swear he talks out of his nose.
  • + 3
 With his accent and half a pasty stuffed in the big end it's just a funny noise Wink Keep'em coming !
  • + 1
 I thought he was mumbling in russian or something LOL
  • + 2
 @JustinLund: he sounded pretty "austin powers" to me. Groovy baby yeah!!
  • + 1
 @Matt115lamb: hahahahahaha this killed me man
  • + 2
 The bit where he's talking with a mouthful of food. No chance.
  • + 9
 Wrexham and Shrewsbury A&E on standby...Looks amazing.
  • + 2
 Gloves, why you wear no gloves...? I've noticed the UK boys and PNW / Canada boys hardly ever wear gloves, why the hell is that? Looks cold as f@ck. Video is Mental, just Mental.

I could listen to Ratboy all day long! I can understand maybe every 5th word, but it makes me chuckle...
  • + 2
 Try rolling a J with gloves on... Or simply remembering to put them back on after rolling and smoking said J and riding all smiles & stoke. My theory on the PNW boys at least Smile
  • + 0
 Mud and gloves don't mix mate.
  • + 1
 @thenotoriousmic: That makes no sense at all. I grew up riding MX and mountain bikes in the cold, snow and mud and always wore gloves.
  • + 1
 @twelve02: can't grip the bars with wet muddy gloves.
  • + 2
 I find I can't grip the bars with bare hands if i'm sweaty or wet. gloves improve grip in my experience. hand cream plus rain plus bare hands... that is a recipe for disaster
  • + 1
 It comes from dirt jumping. When you get into seriously into dirt jumping, and you're riding at the same spot day after day, you start to notice how much little differences affect your riding. Riding bare handed offers more control. It's easier to express something like a tabletop the way you want, where the grips are constantly rotating through your hands. Your inside hand is upside down pushing, and your outside hand isn't really gripping, just guiding and lifting with the grip only really touching your thumb and index finger. Riding dirt jumps without gloves is easy to get away with, you just pat your hands in the dirt to take care of sweat between runs. For mountain biking, gloves are usually a better option because you don't want to stop and dry your hands off all the time. The control issue is why glove manufacturers put such an emphasis on single layer, thin palm gloves without stitching to get in the way of feel.
  • + 2
 That trail should be called The 1 Percent because that is a f*cking pro only line. Not just a Double Black. I can ride double black, but 99% of us are just rolling that whole thing. Crabapple Hits didn't look as hard as some of those lips.
  • + 4
 Haven't been able to watch the vid yet (shitty airline wifi), but I will say crabapple is intimidating but doable for far more than the 1%

Biggest problem for a lot of guys is they don't always have a buddy to follow and show them the right speed...never hit jumps like that for the first time without following someone (unless you're a stud jumper)
  • + 2
 @nvranka: As you get better at jumping you can more often than not work out the correct speed to hit a jump. As long as you hit the first one well you're set the the rest to come.
  • + 3
 @Jack-McLovin: yeah man for sure Smile I love that feeling when you start to feel the rhythm of a properly dialed jump line

I wish we had more of them around here...

Snow summit and mammoth are a joke as far as dialed proper jump lines are concerned
  • + 4
 @nvranka: My intent was to say that these jumps are more intimidating than Crabapple Hits. They're all gap jumps with BMX lips.

When I see Bryce land's riding buddies casing jumps, I know that's a bar set high. Hah

 @bizutch: word

Lipped jumps can be sketch!
  • + 1
 So it wasn't just me....Some of those jumps look quite dangerous really. Lippy for the distance needed.
  • + 1
 These a way bigger in real life and they're made out of crushed stone from a nearby slate quarry. Make a right mess of you if you fucked up. Be like landing on razor blades.

 I'd love to hit this line, but I have a feeling I would 50/50 case the first jump and eat shit.

  • + 5
 Ratboy for Rampage?
  • + 2
 Yes! A jump / flow line like this has been needed for aaaages, what a beast. Scenery and filming is mint too. Niceone Revo / 50to01
  • + 2
 Who says you need a long travel bike? Josh Lewis was hitting that whole line on a Santa Cruz 5010.
  • + 6
 hey man some of us need that extra 70mm of travel for casing lips and mid-air ejects okay
  • + 1
 Is that Sam hocker's doing the backflip at the end??! if so that's insane! He's progressed at a crazy rate the past few years
  • + 2
 Pretty sure it's Tom Isted, looking at his Instagram. www.instagram.com/p/BQmyPqNgPwY/?taken-by=tom_isted

 I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone throw any kind of rotational tricks on a V10. lol that bike would be really hard to get around.

  • + 3
 Hell no! I'm the same age man. Mind you I'm not sure if pluck up the plums for this but people like tony hawk, Kelly slater, Brian foster all show you can still be at the top of your game into your 40s. Hit it! Haha
  • + 1
 @gavlaa: it's tricky! I can jump and have hit stuff almost as big, it's just the prospect of sending the biggest stuff I ever hit at my age! It's gonna eat me thou this trail, I ride revs a fair bit and it being open is gonna get too tempting! Probably should hit BMBP moto first to get a brothers eye in !
  • - 1
 @usmbc-co-uk: yeah I know what you mean I think we're bit old for this shit. im not far off age wise and this is like hitting the biggest stuff I've ever his all at once with bigger stuff thrown in. What's worse that it's by going to get bigger... when do you call it a day?
