Dec 5, 2018
by Red Bull Bike  


Former DH MTB World Cup racer, Bryn Atkinson swapped the trails of Australia for the Pacific Northwest trading race kicks for camera clicks. Listen to the pure, unadulterated sound of speed as he shreds through the woods of Washington.

 He should wear a full face helmet for such riding, showing the example to the youth community out there...

 @RedBurn: The youth community will heal on the next day. And we, the old farts, already know better. No worriesWink

 Better watch now. It's going to be removed after 17th December 2018

 At last riding at a level I can relate to... he's wearing an half shell and rides a trail bike...that's about it

 @chyu: I have no idea what you're talking about...

 Opinion, Bryn Atkinson is one of the best shralpers of all time? On clips too!
  • + 14
 not sure what shralp really means, but yes you are correct
  • + 9
 @cmitchell: 'Shralp' shredding and ripping at the same time, commonly associated with skateboarding, surfing and I think snowboarding, but hey..
  • + 13
 Definitely a top 5 schralp dogg. Some of the best style on two wheels.
  • + 2
 @ytei: You are close. Shralp is derived from the words Shred and Scalp. Take the first three letters and the last three letters and you get "Shralp". Probably not politically correct these days, but hey...
  • + 7
 @skidmarkbro: f*ck political correctness

 Connor Fearon #1, Bryn is up there though.

 Bryn is the King of Cutties for sure!

 Awesome, the way he left the garage looks like a father of three kids sneaking out for a ride
  • + 17
 Let's just hope he doesn't store all his 12 bikes in his garage...

 not only you. your gf too.

 Exactly my thoughts

 That's one of my favorite parts of this video.
  • + 15
 Someone get Bryn on the PB hot lap! Stat!
  • + 14
 Bryn's edits have always the best soundtrack!
  • + 11
 Someone pedaling the entire fire road up would be a great video. The climb up is no joke!!!
  • + 10
 Rad, that corner at the minute mark was brilliant, drifting on the gas, right on.
  • + 3
 I’m just happy to have the momentum to coast to the top of that turn. Haven’t thought much of pedaling out of it! Haha
  • + 5
 He needs a bloody Pilots license for the amount of time he spent airborne and a rally drivers license for the amount of time he was going sideways and a bloody pinball license for the amount of time he was bouncing off things and last but not least Demigod status for pedalling in the air mid jump!

 This gives me anxiety just thinking of going this fast on that trail hahahahaha

 So true!

 i love bryn. his riding makes me Smile

 I just realized I have a mountain bike skill in common with Bryn … I also make funny noises when I ride.
  • + 6
 Haha my god... this is the best mtb video I've seen in years. Bryn is ridiculous on 2 wheels!!
  • + 3
 The guy is the epitome of the term “shred”. His cornering technique is the best of anybody’s, but the way he puts it all together to maintain that much speed and flow is truly a joy to watch. The pumping, jumping and cornering all strung together perfectly. He and Jill must just fly through the woods together. What fun.
  • + 5
 I can feel my shoulder separating as I thud and slump into a tree after flying out of control on every turn he railed...
  • + 5
 At 1:19 to 1:24, this is barely in control.
  • + 5
 Nah, he was always in control

 What a sick edit! Loving the Magpie noises !! What a Shredder!!!!

 Classic case of the mach speed giggles and squees!
  • + 0
 did luke strobel's all time tmc raw edit just get beat? was it because the raw audio is compressed better or was bryn's shralping better? maybe a little bit of both, hehehheee

 If Brendog's and Connor's riding style made a baby, it would be Bryn's riding style, also, this video is definitely photoshoped,

 Except that would be like the kids giving birth to their pops

 @beast-from-the-east: that's ageism, I'm offended, ban this person immediately!

 I really love the winter here. If it was summer, like on this vid, I would be sweating my ass. And I'm pretty cool right now...
  • + 2
 Still love the one with Olly Wilkins. Well worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

 I get it now. Chase the World Cup circuit as cover to receive funding to shred favorite trails. Done.

 Yup. Want to see Bryn hit the PB hot-lap...in the dry!

 @1:00 mark the power slide is just something else after having just drifted into a corner.
I thing the video is slightly speed up, though.
  • + 1
 I don’t think you know Bryn. This is 1:1
  • + 1
 @sngltrkmnd: yeah the corner around 1:05 is crazy. I don't know how he rides that fast!
  • + 0
 I believe it is sped up as well. If you focus away from the rider on the leaves and ferns they just move a bit too quickly. Still a great rider on a great piece of trail.

 @Snowytrail: True. That's what I meant in the first place.

 One of the best riding styles. Love it!
