Part one of Antidote is now live, in this first part of the film we show you the pace and difficulty of a world cup season and then catch up with one of the most talented riders in the world, Brendan Fairclough and see what he gets up to in the off season. He rides some short travel, some DH, and as ever sends some big whips.

We then head west to Wales and catch up with new young gun Taylor Vernon who has signed with GT this season and Rich Thomas, who as well as racing world cups and riding semi professionally also holds down a full time job.

 Laughed so hard when he was asked what is his off season and he said drinking with the lads really!

 Brilliant, but why is the talking so quiet and the music so loud? I was constantly at the volume adjuster. Still, only a minor point in an otherwise banging video. Airbourne rolloffs FTW!

 Sick video, not sure if anyone else has noticed, but recently MTB films have changed from the "Follow Me" style of filming where its just all about the riding, to it being all about what people can do with cameras, really nice video though

 Im pretty sure that most of the segment with Taylor is filmed in the Forest of Dean at a trail centre called Pedalabikeaway. Really sweet place, uplift there is great as well. Think he was riding the trails GBU and Ski Run. Worth a trip!
