Video: Slippery Head Cam Runs in Lousa with the Syndicate

Feb 21, 2020

bigquotesWe're back! Sun, sick trails and a grumpy Jordi. What more could a team want?

Take a spin down the test track in Lousa with the crew, as they dodge the labyrinth of roots and grease after a night of rain! Some new toys hooked up to the bike this week, just in time to get them set up and dialled in for the first round in 3 weeks time. We can't wait.

 In lousa is it all self shuttling or is that an established park with shuttles? It seems to have blown up in the past few years. Only a couple years ago was when you heard of the first couple pros going there for early season it seems like?

 self shuttling, or some private guys that make that service: Montanha-Clube, We Ride, wheelersmountainbikeholidays, others...

 @luis-beri: yes we have a few guys who shuttle. We are a mountain bike holiday company that have been here for 6 years. Stoked how big lousa is becoming

 I would not call it an "established park", but there's several companies shuttling there. Still, the trails are generally well maintained and proper steep.

 Me and a few guys rode there in 2009 with Flying pigs mtb.
Was mostly single track and the DH track which picked up halfway down the maxi avalanche track . There were some big local road gap jumps back then .stayed in the abandoned village high up . Good times .@Wheelersmtbholidays:

 From their instagram videos it seems like they're running 40s with white lowers now. Not sure if I'm a big fan, black fits so well with everything.

 Think they are testing new lowers with a different offset ....

 I was sad when Fox stopped doing white lowers a while back. Kashima Stanchions and white crown and lowers looks so bling

 @johnyjn: possible bigger stanchions too. Saw some 49 decals showing up on instagram and PB.

 @jesseshred4: 49 is just the 29er version of the 40

 YeAh. Pretty sure I would have crashed 10x trying to get down that in the slick.

 Yesssss! More please. Where was angry Jordi? And was that Rob Roskopp doing all the follow cam work? ;-)

 I thought Peaty posted this video as him on follow but the visor does seem to say Roskopp - cant help thinking if they are doing proper testing they should be faster than either Peaty or the boss....

 Last week they had offset crowns and now standard crowns with different lowers....

Could be a prototype offset lowers ?

 White or silver FOX lowers!!! Also think they are testing a 49 stanchion!!

 Bro, 49 is the fox 40 compatible with 29er wheels. They’ve been out for the last couple years as the standard big wheel DH offering.
