bigquotesWe are stoked that Muc-Off are working with us for the next 2 seasons. After jumping on board for the 2017 season, they wanted more… Transition Bikes/Muc-Off Factory Racing was born. Muc-Off have joined some of the best companies in the world that equip us with THE best products on the market. With our fun yet professional environment we look forward to continued development and helping our riders fulfil their dreams.Tony Seagrave, Team Manager


bigquotesSince we first supported FMD Racing in 2017, they have been a formidable force on the Downhill circuit. The passion and drive shared by team manager Tony and the rest of the team is nothing short of contagious and a perfect fit for the Muc-Off ethos. This is Muc-Off’s first step into title territory and we couldn’t think of a team more suited to fly the Muc-Off flag. We’re insanely excited for the 2018 season and will be working closely with Tony, Tahnee, Kaos and Jamie to make sure that Transition/Muc-Off Factory Racing will be a force to be reckoned with.Elliot Withers, Athlete Manager at Muc-Off



Muc-Off currently sponsors other mountain bike teams and athletes including Chain Reaction Mavic, GT Factory Racing, Danny MacAskill, Reed Boggs and Tomas Lemoine.

 Epicly awesome. I especially loved the truck jump with fireworks (which I why I didn't like that photo in the contest with the night jump and fireworks. The TR video was NOT takign itself seriously).

 Hair Metal!

 I wish my Dad managed a world cup DH team when I was growing up. Go Team Seagrave!

 To all Team Managers:

-That's the proper way to launch your DH Team.




By far, the best team launch in ages!!!!!!
  • + 35
 You obviously missed the one by Santa Cruz last year. Even better.
  • + 16
 the launch of the new RF rocky mountain team was awesome too
  • + 5
 Nah, the Rocky Mountain "most Canadian team ever" launch was better IMO lol

 It's 2018, explain to me why a Redbull athlete has to wear a pink tutu?! Time to sell my PBJ.
  • + 11
 @CactusLover: Probably because Tahnee likes pink!
  • + 2
 @Muckal: yeah, I remember it,was good, but man......this one, that 80 vibes, the bangs, THE DISCOVERY EXPLOSION.....Michael Bay approves!
  • + 2
 @CactusLover: @CactusLover: maybe coz its 2018, and we left homophobic horseshit and ignorance in the 50s allegedly
  • + 35
 Did that Discovery really deserve such a violent end ?
  • + 69
 It would have happen eventually...
  • + 62
 @REDMAN4: Such a small minded comment. Implying British wiring is....hold on, my MG just caught fire for no reason.
  • + 13
 I agree. That car is a finisher car! A transporter of gods! The GOLDEN GOD

 @BadgerBacker: Why do the English like warm beer?

Because they manufacture refrigerators too.

 @BadgerBacker: Lucas...prince of darkness

 You don’t actually need a ton of gasoline and matches for them to do that....

 @delawhere: an amphibious exploring vehicle

 Not many people know that Land Rover attempted to market a computer. Why did they stop? They could not find a way to get it to leak oil.

 thank god they remembered the blinker fluid

 probably didn't run anyways.

 @BadgerBacker: name one good US made car ?

 best thing to do with a land rover, burn it

 @Matt115lamb: Toyota Tacoma, made in california

 @Matt115lamb: I'm not a big thump your chest U.S. car fan. Our trucks run a good long while and our muscle cars, both old and new, offer cheap speed. Though both are fairly unrefined and somewhat classless.

However, having grown up with a barn full of Austin-Healeys, MG's and Triumphs in various states of disrepair (my dad was an automotive anglophile) I can say with some certainty that British wiring is a nightmare.

In all honesty I'm more of German car guy myself.

And more to the point, unfortunately there really aren't any British automotive companies anymore, which is a shame.

 @BadgerBacker: some fair points there , just had to stick up for my childhood family car . Did breakdown a lot Wink

 OK...just to nit pick. Missed opportunity to have a 4th rider debut in the video intro, let them be the one to goon it into the exploding Land Rover, then cross their name off the roster at the video's end.

 Can't wait for mullets to make a come back

 Make Mullets Great Again

 @focofox37: I’m rocking mullet for past 6 months. Ladies be swooning.

 @Duderz7 they never left. See: ice hockey....Canadia.

 if trump stays in office much longer, mullets will probably make a comeback as the nation's IQ plummets

 @speed10: me too... 1 month in to my mullet and I have to leave the party every now and then for....various reasons..... This mullet is a magnet!

 @chezotron: Canadia?

 @vtracer: yeah. like america, but canadia

 @machchicken: best thIng about the mullet is the smooth transition into rat tail

 @focofox37: Thats the same as making America great again...
  • + 16
 A video truly worthy of a Transition sponsored team.... Tahnee says relax T is an awesome little detail...
  • + 9
 Change those blinker fluids! If his seatpost bearings were lubricated he wouldn't have exploded
  • + 10
 A+

And those TR11s are maybe the best looking bike out there right now
  • + 9
 As a 50yr old dude, I usually dislike these kinds of videos, but this one was pretty damn cool!
  • + 9
 Yeah, they managed to toe the fine line between funny and embarrassing quite well.
  • + 5
 You probably like this one because you were comfortable in a mullet. Me too. Bring back "85!
  • + 7
 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE race in those same kits all year long guys!!!! Neon, jean jackets with metal patches, Top Gun.. YES!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 7
 Would fully support a jean-vest racing team kit. Were getting deadly close to skin suits again.

 @Deep-Friar: Denin and Leather for sure!

 The Seagraves are way cooler than the Athertons.

 Awesome vid! Beat 2017s santa cruz launch vid IMO.

 Nice to see that they didn't forget to put headlight fluid in the Land Rover

 Every time I see a Transition Bikes video I make it a point to watch it over anything else.

 Please tell me Thanee will race in the tutu all season!

Classic video comparable only to the syndicate boys, that’s how you do it!

 F@CK YEAH!!!!........ Oh! sorry boss... No, I'm not watching Bikes again.... I'm working....

 Transition has the best damn videos. Seagrave in that toto was plain awesome
  • + 5
 It helps her hold the line.
  • + 7
 She doesn't need to go to Africa to see the rain, she's from the UK.
  • + 6
 @egb81: Good job she's female, because riding like that is nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
  • + 1
 I said Toto, not todo guys
  • + 3
 @flipsk12: Toto is pronounced toe-toe. Tahnee was wearing a tutu, pronounced too-too. Todo is not even a word in the English language. Maybe it is in the 'murican language, I dunno...

Ride on me tutu wearing buddies!

 @handynzl: clearly you haven't blessed the rains down in Africa, sir

 Reminds me of this one.

It may be in the MucOff formula. Tahnee, don't just drink from any can they throw at you. This is no ad for RedBull this time, but for your other sponsor!

 This how an edit made by clarkson would look like. Love it.

 Aw yea. I'll be the first one to sign up for an 80s Fox Racing kit!
  • + 3
 Please no.
I grew up in the 70s/80s and it was great times. But I really don't understand the desire to LOOK like you are from that time period. For a party? Or a killer launch video tongue firmly planted in cheek? Hell yeah. For everyday? I just don't get the attraction.
