Feb 25, 2021
by Pinkbike Originals  


Ben Cathro has been working hard behind the scenes on the next season of The Privateer but outside forces (like a global pandemic) haven't made things easy. Join Ben on a wee trail walk as he goes through the plan for 2021.

 Pinkbike, really stepping up their content delivery in the last few years. Taking Ben on as an employee though is top choice.

 "2021 is going to be so full of content"

To be honest, I would happily watch a series of just Ben sweeping snowy trails.

 Hey Ben, if you see this it would be really cool if you did a bike check for your Enduro rig. As a tall guy like yourself I'd be interested to see your set-up, especially as I've just moved onto 29" wheels and am really struggling with set-up and comfort.

Awesome news @ben-cathro, I'm stoked for more content and the future Privateer team. Adding some TM experience to your CV is definitely a logical progression.

 No new bikes or parts until 2022 so not surprised the privateer is due in 2022 as well. Now we know what the winners of the PB 2021 dh academy will get.

 I like Ben, and everything he does. But that helmet is so ugly, that this video may count as anti-marketing for the product.
