This video tells the tale of a desperate man, George Gannicott. George has been enjoying tasty Clif Bar products for many years and using them to feed his adventures. Like many, he now loves the bars, gels and shot bloks so much, that he has lost control of the rate he consumes them!
During a v1sion team get together on the approach to the first world cup round, George asks team boss Jack, if he can have more Clif Bars. Unfortunately, with George already way over quota, he's told he can't have anymore and loses control.
George raids Jack's personal supply of Clif, taking Bars, Build bars, Gels, and Bloks, leaving Jack outraged. George hides his new Clif stash and takes off on the run on board his Nicolai Geometron G16 trail bike into the Saddleworth hills, with the whole team in hot pursuit!
George manages to give the lads the shake, riding his Nicolai to its very limits. However, only to land on the realisation that all the Clif in the world, wasn't worth losing his friends and teammates for. Jack and the lads eventually give up the hunt for George, only to find him enjoying a nice brew and a Clif Bar back at team base, with all of Jack's Clif back where it should be.
Following George's dramatic performance in this recreation, he's recently been contacted by a number of top shows, and will star in the fourth series of 'Peaky Blinders', as Tommy Shelby's personal mountain biking assassin!
We hope you enjoy the watch!
