bigquotesMore airtime equals more trees! Gee and Dan take on Dyfi Bike Park's 50 hits for Endura.

Endura will plant 100 trees for every second off the ground that the boys notch up - find out how they get on.

 Another way to look at it, the more trees the more airtime

 If you filmed the whole thing in slow-mo you'd get even more Beer

 They’d have gotten way more trees planted if they ride the entire track in slow-mo.

 @tbmaddux: When you post some more comments I can give you some more downvotes. Interested? I'd love to see that sweet swedish forest growing all crooked and pale.

 Just saw Rachel announce she's pregnant on Instagram as well. The Atherton's have been busy!

 @murfio: Actually, you're the one who just insinuated it. Maybe you need to reflect on your own views before projecting negative connotations onto other's comments.

 @murfio: is whacked out as that is, no I just submit in general the entire family has been busy. Rachel & Ben, Gee & Dan with the bike part, etc etc. Shred on folks and the best of luck to Rachel with her upcoming mini me

 @conoat: @conoat: South wales has a pretty shallow gene pool, generally where there's mining, there's inbreeding. Yorkshire's not so bad, you have to go a fair way north before you find the webbed toes and banjos.

 @pbuser2299: Webbed feet is a sought after human trait especially for swimmers and free divers. Foot models not so much.

 I had no doubts they’d leaf the ground

 Hopefully this becomes rooted and doesn't go unnoticed. Seems like something worth barking about

 @Bermie-Sanders: It's really good that the Athertons have used their insane talent and branched out to endura for a project like this.

 Endura also make affordable gear that lasts years, unlike all that Troy Lee crap.

 Ive rediscovered Endura kit this winter. It is a great price for really well designed and durable gear and with a good attitude to the environment. For winter riding in the UK there is little better IMO

 The Athertons sure have been planting their seeds. Gagitty

 I don't think the Atherton's spent more than about tree fiddy on dirt. lmao. that place is nothing but shale rock!
  • 2 0
 Yeah I'm sure they talked about the shale in one of their vids. Seems they've figured out a way to make it work though; looks grippy and weather-resistant. :-)
