Video: Phil Atwill Slays his Backyard Trails on his eMTB

Nov 6, 2020
by Juice Lubes  

Juice Lubes Home to Roost is back for 2020... and for just one single banger of an episode!

With lockdown, restrictions on travel and the Rona in full effect we knew we only had one chance to get a Home to Roost filmed this year. We knew we had to make it something special and, obviously, Phil Atwill was the man for the job!

Fresh off the back of his 5th place at Lousã Downhill World Cup, Phil's Home to Roost was filmed on his backyard tracks near Athens in Greece.

Phil and friends dug the trails through the summer of 2020. They knew travel would be limited so wanted to make sure they had plenty of fun, techy and shreddy trails that they could ride without going too far. Judging by Phil's result in Lousã, they did a pretty good job!

Juice Lubes will be back with even more Home to Roost in 2021 - stay tuned! You can check out the complete collection of Home to Roost here on Pinkbike.

 F*CK yeah Phil Atwil! One of my top 5 favourite riders for sure. Knows how to ride, doesn't take it too seriously and just lives for fun. That's a decent recipe for life!
Get him a ride! I'll donate a fiver! :-D #Philbrapwill

P.S. He's probably just grabbed (or been given) an off-the-shelf ebike with whatever spec it comes with.

 Oh man. Too bad the big name teams probably wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole. Dudes on fire....

 When he manages to put the things together he has a good runs but too often he crashes or makes mistakes that screw his runs. the riders of the big name teams are usually more consistent with their good runs.

 @solidautomech: Cube team didn't go to the Lousa world cup due to Covid, so Phil went on his own and used Ben Cathro's walk the talk pits.

 On one hand it's an electric bike so I don't really like it.
On the other hand it's Phil Atwill so I love it!!! He hides the motor effect quite well btw :-)
