Say hello to the next biggest mountain bike video series; How We Roll. Bringing a new perspective to the world of the FMD race team for all the behind-the-scenes and drama. The series has been created to be enjoyed by those both in and outside of the sport, so take a seat and watch what downhill is all about with some of the wildest stories from the 2022 season.

The first episode is out today, with subsequent episodes launched weekly.

To accompany the video launch, we've put together a little photo story with some behind-the-scenes snaps from the creation of the series. In episode 1 the team get together for their first big gathering of the year for the pre-season testing in Lousa, Portugal. Not only essential for dialling in bike setups ahead of the race season, team camps are an integral part of team bonding before they spend the entire summer travelling around together. The first stop on the World Cup circuit this year was Lourdes, France. Known to the rest of the population for being the destination for holy pilgrimages, it’s renowned for its high speeds, slick mud and painful whoop sections to us mountain bikers.

 out of tens of thousands of people who race downhill around the world, to even get into the top 100 is an amazing extraordinarily hard achievement. i would urge anyone who thinks its all about money ,to go and do a national in their own country and see where you stack up against the non- full time experts let alone the elites . also having met kaos on an uplift i can say that my experience was that he was a very humble, gentle guy with amazing bike skill

 I'll never understand the negativity of so many on Pinkbike. How much nastier would you folks be without days out in the woods?

Loved the first episode. The Seagraves have contributed a lot to the sport. And I'm looking forward to the coverage of Phoebe's season. The juniors were on fire this year.

 Some of the production value is pretty top notch in this - I will say though, this did make me really appreciate how Sleeper Co pulled out some pretty captivating storylines in the Pinkbike Racing series. I'm sure everyone on the Canyon team has their story to tell, but the editing and focus points seem a bit disjointed - lots to cover in episode 1 I'm sure. Either way, looking forward to seeing how things develop Smile .

 I prefer everyone at each round, don’t like how pinkbike jumps about for each rider, just saying

 They salvaged the series when they switched to "tahnee gonna win the overall" to "mental health is important". I bet tahnee will carry this show, like she carries the whole team in the races.

 Came here to look at the comments of a pretty nice video/series and end up seeing the team members getting verbally abused, Yikes, typical pinkbike comments.

 I was surprised about the negativity on here, too. People should just ride their bike a little more to uplift their mood.

 @Xaelber93: It's funny because the people they make fun of for consistently coming 50th or 60th at a world cup would trash all of us any day, they aren't coming in 50th or 60th at a local race, it's a world cup, that means they're literally the top 50-60 in the world. Agreed, people need to go out and ride or something, didn't expect the negativity either, but typical pinkbike as usual.

 @averagerug: clearly referring to my comment, can't remember verbally abusing any of the riders in question personally but okay.

 @markcorrigan: Lmao, insults count as verbal abuse, we know the meaning of your comment don't try to hide that you were trying to insult somebody

 @averagerug: Lmao. Wasn't even an insult. Literally just basic observations, stating the facts.

 @averagerug: I disagree with @markcorrigan, but he hasn't directly insulted anyone and in no way can his comments be described as verbal abuse. People like you claiming such things divert attention from real abuse.

 That was fun to watch. Turns out I like this 'review' style. I used to think it was better to watch as the season progressed, but I'm enjoying the memories it pulls up.

 Calls a spade a spade. I should imagine today's sensitive types would get offended by that.

 @owl-X it’s ok to admit you like him, you don’t have to hide your true feelings behind animosity.

 A great video, got a bit of an old school Syndicate vibe about it. Just hope we see Tahnee back racing at the top soon.
