3rd place for Peaty! How the hell does he manage that at 42 - so impressive.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 6:33)
He never has stopped practicing and training to stay elite level fit. At that level of training the speed wont stop till he decides the work isn't worth it to him anymore. With peaty that wont likely happen soon. He likes to race and win.

holly f+ck, what track
(Jul 20, 2016 at 5:15)
The boys in the uk are always running on the sweetest, burliest looking tracks. I am of the opinion that they have literally built WC dominance with years of shovel work and a healthy obsession for steep rutted turns.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 6:02)
^ yup.. makes our national champs or any race in the u.s. appear to be a bit of a joke.....such a stacked field and pretty awesome looking track...makes me miss the glory days of norba circa early 2000s...
(Jul 20, 2016 at 7:14)
: now, now, us has got some good tracks. And the gravity raceing scene is improving. luca shaw is becoming a podium guy at WC.. Plus we got the guy whos won over 50 percent of the WC races in the last 5 years.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 8:18)
: the norba circuit was almost as big as the wc back in the day. Dh at Mammouth was huge!
(Jul 20, 2016 at 8:36)
Girls too! They might look nice in these edits, but most of the year the weather is crappy and wet and many tracks are unrideable. In the Uk we are also lacking in actual mountains (except Scotland) Most tracks are short and sweet and like this one, haven't been around for very long. Having said that we are increasing the number of bike parks and tracks every year. That might now slow down as these were mostly partly funded by the EU.

: trust me Im not complaining...I can do 3000ft of descending that drops me into my backyard in 70deg weather during the middle of winter 3miles from the beach...
(Jul 20, 2016 at 9:09)
: My thoughts exactly. Still, you in the US still have a lot of good riders - I'm from Germany. What do we have here? We have Fischbach, ok, he's no slouch, but he's no Gwin either. That goes for every German downhiller: way faster on a pushbike than I'd ever be on a dh rig, but so far of from what UK talent has to offer. I don't want to knock our riders, it's just those guys are on a different level altogether...
Racing Nationals in UK though, it's like going to a worldcup race only some guys overslept.

That little bit of Laurie Greenland looked absolutely scorching! Kids got a big future. Always looks so happy just to be part of it all!
(Jul 21, 2016 at 5:40)
Spot on, rat boy looked fast to, and Danny hart I'm the stumps was awesome. Great video
(Jul 20, 2016 at 7:30)
good edit - reminds me of earthed
(Jul 20, 2016 at 13:28)
I was gonna say it reminds me of the Sprung videos
(Jul 20, 2016 at 9:12)
So basically a World Cup, then. Well played Brits, you're doing it right
(Jul 20, 2016 at 8:38)
When is rat gonna pull his finger out?
(Jul 20, 2016 at 13:48)
Been thinking the same, after his cup victory I thought he'd come back and be dominant. Still hoping!
(Jul 21, 2016 at 15:32)
: injury can mess with your head no matter how long ago it happened.when he was winning he was balls out.loved it.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 7:55)
Good times! with tracks like that no wonder the Brits produce so many DH legends. Makes Lenzerheide look like paved highway.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 4:09)
That track sure looks fun
(Jul 20, 2016 at 7:03)
the orange fork from rachel is sooooo ugly...
(Jul 20, 2016 at 9:30)
Its the wc leaders fork colour. Gwin has one too. Most people liked the orange colour on an old Z1.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 13:47)
But you noticed it, marketing done! Lol and yes orange Z1s, I'd have chopped a nut off for some back in the day! :-)
(Jul 21, 2016 at 10:43)
I think it looks good with the trek blue - the old gulf colours. Clashes terribly with her shorts though.
(Jul 21, 2016 at 12:23)
: yeah Gulf racing colours could look good on a donkey! Good mix.
(Jul 22, 2016 at 0:16)
You are right guys. From the marketing side it´s great, but it´s not my taste.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 9:17)
Danny Hart's line over the stumps is genius..
(Jul 20, 2016 at 13:31)
Peat earned a place on the worlds team one last time with that result surely!
(Jul 20, 2016 at 5:53)
(Jul 20, 2016 at 5:13)
yeah eric b & rakim
(Jul 22, 2016 at 12:42)
Every time I watch videos like this, I say OK, so that's how you do that. The next day at the trail I end up like, how did that go again?
(Jul 20, 2016 at 6:56)
3:30 so clean jump on such a dirty track.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 13:33)
phil atwill's double is pretty sweet
(Jul 20, 2016 at 4:58)
Would love to hear Josh's thoughts on the flat pedals.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 8:01)
I would as well. Seems that flat pedals and a pair of five ten Karvers have been his set up the last few races.
(Jul 20, 2016 at 11:36)
Wish I never knocked myself out on the Saturday, the track was unreal
(Jul 20, 2016 at 23:47)
Great edit. Got me stoaked.
(Jul 21, 2016 at 14:18)
(Jul 21, 2016 at 18:49)
You UK cats sure make fun videos to watch.
(Jul 21, 2016 at 0:05)
Whats the song?
(Jul 21, 2016 at 10:29)
eric b & rakim - know the ledge
(Jul 21, 2016 at 6:02)
(Jul 20, 2016 at 12:39)
Gee's place ?
