 This place (and Laurie's bike) looks unbelievable, I can't even imagine having a place like this close to home, out of all the places on earth, it seems I've ended up in the flattest place possible, good ole Florida, at least I can ride all year round and there's plenty equipment rentals nearby. IMO LG has two of the best mentors you could ask for w/ Peaty and Minnaar I don't follow EWS or downhill as much as some, but I've always seemed to favor Minnaar, he always seems so calm and professional about everything. Syndicate's going to be on fire this year.

 You can ride all year round in Wales too. Can't guarantee it'll be as sunny as it is in the video though.

 merthyr vale and pontypool, both within 30 mins of me just like countless other great natural trails, south wales is a goldmine of steep techy trails.

 I like those two guys, always worth watching Bernard Kerr. Greenland will be awesome at Santa Cruz, he's always been an incredible rider, I reckon in this new environment he could set the mountain on fire.

 Greenland carrying some serious pace. Good luck for this season.

 Only ever seen tall riders on the Syndicate, it's gonna be interesting seeing Jackson and Laurie bringing completely styles to the bike that's proven results for the tall guys.

 Vergier isn't particularly tall is he?

 @melonhead1145: no... def under 6".. he did leave the program too though... Interesting point made on the bikes intentions per: rider size

 Yes!!! Incredible speed down those trails. I was also really happy to see Laurie, sponsored by fox managed to mulch their gloves really quickly. Fox gloves fall apart

 @markcorrigan: he has also likely been testing a Santa Cruz for a while now. I doubt these guys just blindly sign with a company without ever testing the bikes they will be riding.

 @sino428: honestly, for the most part I don't thing that's really the main motivator for these guys.
Adding in the success of the V10, and the fact it's proven to be one of the most refined DH bikes currently today, I'd say if I was a potential signer to race for the syndicate, it's kinda a no brainer.
  • 1 0
 @jomacba: I agree with you. While it’s probably a formality with a bike like the V10, I still think there is a very good chance he’s been testing the bike out since the end of last season.
  • 1 0
 @sino428: He has - posted some clips of him riding one on Instagram, and in some clips he's not got the Red Bull helmet on. Made a point of saying it was just because the news wasn't public when they filmed them so he was being low profile on it.

 @CleanZine: for sure. while these riders contracts formally run through the end of the calendar year, it seems like they are effectively over at the end of the race season.

 And let's be honest. Riders on this level will rip on everything that has two wheels.

 @pioterski: Also true
