I'm not just saying this because I'm British. But I feel we always seem to be best at capturing my favourite side of mountain biking which is being silly and generally just "f*cking about".
Rarely serious and just having fun with whatever location and conditions we're dealt.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 1:29)
a culture that brings forth things like Caterham, sausage-breakfast or Douglas Adams is ace in my book.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 2:55)
You are right! You guys make us want to ride in the shittiest weather, on the 'lamest' trails, just because you can have a laugh and fuck about any time you go out! I'm trying to spread this vibe here because people are just too serious about their riding, gear, bikes... just go out smash some corners, jump and have fun!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 3:24)
it replays not only to mountain biking, life as well! keep it up!

What is British is that he may not appear serious, yet at the same time present a whole lot of massive skill. A bit like Monty Pyton or even Danny MacAskill. Or let me put it like this, the British use their skill to create something fun. Olly Wilkins is my favourite rider and I think he is more well rounded than people realize. My favourite video of his is probably his "sound of speed" edit:

I agree and the Brits rip
(Feb 9, 2018 at 6:45)
Agree 100% you guys have it figured out.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 10:25)
: not all of us
(Feb 9, 2018 at 21:27)
(Feb 9, 2018 at 23:59)
Oh I definitely agree there mate, take Slice of British Pie for example, absolutely nothing serious in there haha. Brit's are great at mucking around and not taking things seriously.
(Feb 12, 2018 at 1:33)
: nope, nothing figured out here
(Feb 9, 2018 at 1:44)
Couldn't climb back up it in just ten seconds, could we, Olly?
(Feb 9, 2018 at 5:59)
Damn, trash talk from a f*cking bike company...
(Feb 9, 2018 at 6:38)
: mostly banter. Olly is great!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 14:04)
: Agreed, he's great to watch. Not totally sure why I was downvoted to oblivion, that was meant to be a touch sarcastic...
(Feb 9, 2018 at 1:11)
The whole UK is 10 second descents. If it wasn't fun we wouldn't be here.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 3:53)
Somebody hasn't left the South East...
(Feb 9, 2018 at 4:02)
You're spot on there. You can up it to 12 seconds when you do.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 5:23)
: I've never been to the south east
(Feb 9, 2018 at 5:39)
: You're not missing much
(Feb 9, 2018 at 6:42)
: I disagree dude. There's more to riding than the size of the hills. Most countries have bigger mountains than the UK - but the scene in the UK and specifically the south east is phenomenal. A place with not even one mountain has produced Brendan Fairclough, Sam Reynolds, Bernard Kerr, Olly Wilkins and numerous other pros. And not only that but there's a huge scene of kids riding in the Surrey Hills bringing a new generation through. There's definitely better riding to be had in Wales and in the North - but we're going pretty well with what we've got in the South
(Feb 9, 2018 at 7:50)
Haha Love the humor
(Feb 9, 2018 at 11:01)
: agreed. There are some good bikeparks in the south-east. Aston hill, Chicksands, Tidworth to name 3.
(Feb 12, 2018 at 3:34)
: Yeah fair play that comment of mine was slightly tongue in cheek. What usually generates good trails is a thriving local scene so I imagine with so many of you down there, there must be some awesome runs about, even if they're not as long as natural lines in the Lakes for example.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 3:06)
If think the average time surfers spend actually surfing a wave is between 5 and 10 secs, so a short trail can be a blast, no doubt. Quantity is overrated.
(Feb 11, 2018 at 15:09)
(Feb 9, 2018 at 1:49)
broke my ribs and dislocated my clavical on a 10s trail.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 0:31)
That endo drop in was siiick!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 2:49)
Probably the best thing in Swindon.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 3:52)
looks like the track behind my house, including the trash and kiddy stickhouses -best time on the bike. i am a real brit, regarding my riding preferences -not so convinced of the beer though
(Feb 9, 2018 at 4:05)
I couldn’t really Focus on it
(Feb 9, 2018 at 4:03)
I'm just disappointed I didn't see a video of that car tyre being rolled down the gully.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 13:07)
10s laps are good to work on specifics and details for sure. i have a version of this wrapping around our home in the city. was clay, but concreted it in when the details were set. great to walk out the door and into the saddle for some quick laps to keep things on point. a few different line variations available including a corner hip to boulder landing, different gaps, manual spots, etc and can be run in both directions! good fun and collecting a pack of little rippers around the neighborhood too:
(Feb 10, 2018 at 14:50)
I have a phew of those near by and I just love them ,they are good to goofing around ,but at the same time they give you that little control that sometimes you need on several trails.
(Feb 11, 2018 at 13:45)
the bloke just need to wear a full face lid to cover his "ride face" and tongue hanging all aver the place..but he is f*cking good
(Feb 9, 2018 at 5:49)
I bet I could STRAVA the f... out of these 10 seconds and make them 8 sec!!!!!!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 10:50)
I noticed Ollie said he was lost at the end of the video. Turns out he doesn't know his way round Swindon as well as he thought.
(Feb 9, 2018 at 8:11)
On the topic of having fun on supposedly “shitty” trails.. Anyone know if there’s a third Slice of British Pie film coming out?
(Feb 9, 2018 at 11:53)
Yes they’ve just finished filming it now according to Tom Caldwell’s instagram.
(Feb 10, 2018 at 9:03)
Shitty?? Where I live this kind of trail would be a godsent.
(Feb 12, 2018 at 7:43)
The only Downhill track we have around Copenhagen is a 10" trail,
it would be a dream for us to have something longer...
Enjoy whatever you have out there guys ;D

Happy birthday Olly, ripping it as ever!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 12:13)
Short but sweet! But damn does he have his seatpost super high!
(Feb 10, 2018 at 5:06)
Swindon! think Olly needs a new sat nav!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 7:51)
Swindon?, where abouts in Swindon was that then?. I've only ever seen piss heads, nut job's and shoppers in Swindon.
(Feb 10, 2018 at 0:58)
(Feb 10, 2018 at 8:00)
: Oh yeah, the roundabouts, how could I have forgotten about those bastard things.
(Feb 11, 2018 at 15:12)
: move to a country where every roundabout is replaced with a traffic light and you will eat your words, trust me! Roundabouts are a god send!
(Feb 12, 2018 at 1:10)
: not when they put traffic lights on roundabouts!
(Feb 12, 2018 at 2:18)
: true that!
(Feb 9, 2018 at 7:08)
Damn ! what rear hub is he rolling ??
(Feb 9, 2018 at 9:44)
I think it's because when they edited the video they turned the volume WAY up to like %400. Notice the abnormally loud sounds the tire is making on the dirt? Yah
(Feb 9, 2018 at 5:50)
The true spirit of mountain bike...
(Feb 9, 2018 at 8:54)
Olly is a trail wrecking machine
(Feb 11, 2018 at 12:52)
10 seconds? ...that‘s what she said
(Feb 13, 2018 at 4:35)
Best MTB channel on YT !
(Feb 23, 2018 at 11:58)
(Feb 9, 2018 at 4:47)
Come on lad, should have rode up that 'gulley'. He'll be on an ebike soon, like tha' rest of em'.Nothing wrong with that;
(Feb 9, 2018 at 12:22)
He's sponsored by Focus... he already rides a Jam2 in some edits.
(Feb 10, 2018 at 8:22)
: Did not know that, cheers;
(Feb 9, 2018 at 10:39)
Raw, love it !
(Feb 10, 2018 at 0:42)
Gawdamn that dude was annoying
Below threshold threads are hidden
