50to01: This Must be the Place - Video

Feb 3, 2017 at 7:02
by Josh Lewis  


After some much-appreciated feedback on our videos, we came to the conclusion that a less frequent, longer round up dropped on a monthly basis would be where we wanted to take the 50to01 content. Thanks to everyone for the honest opinions, we listen to every bit and our main focus above everything is to simply inspire others to ride... hopefully we achieved that here!

jan 2017

It was a cold and wet session to kick the video off, squelching our way up to Sambo's favourite local spot we discovered that the beautiful early winter sunlight had been swallowed up by a load of fog... so we turned back round and bombed down the paved climb. Dave picked up an early rear puncture (a 700c road tube) sending a wicked grass brow to a hidden rock. With that fixed, we headed into the dark and gloomy woods where we enjoyed the melody of Sambo's tires screaming underneath him, hopped a few trail block chains and finished in the pub.

jan 2017

Next up witness Craig Evans and his ludicrous ability to make that jackal do whatever the F he wants it to. Bolehills BMX track was frozen providing prime fast rolling conditions but the fingertips were ready to drop off... Fuelling that desire for a bit of Vit D which was coming up next.

jan 2017

The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plane... indeed. Loose and rat have made the express winter trip to Malaga a regular thing, it's no wonder why when you have such peaceful wicked surroundings with rolling flowy trails to go at... not to forget that big yellow thing in the sky too. El Chorro was where we discovered the big rocky Moab style terrain, this was so much fun picking lines down the sandpaper like surface. Then Salva informed us of the jumps in San Pedro which we've only every recognised through BMX edits before, armed with our 5010s we showed up and had a little play. Hope you enjoy!

 Much prefer this kind of video compared the the training techniques kind. If we want that stuff, we'll tune in to watch the GMBN boys, we want you boys to shred like a bunch of highly skilled lunatics and inspire us to get out on our rides and have some serious laughs. Love tuning into to this stuff. Keep up the great work lads!

 ..so the carbon footprint...doesn't matter for short term flights? ;-) ...still think ratboy's decision was only driven by the fact that he was fed up with dh racing...

 Im not sure he has the mentality for the training required
  • + 15
 @chrismac70: how can you say that he's a world champion?
  • + 20
 @chrismac70: he won the overall and pretty much won the worlds in the same season. He's got nothing to prove.
  • + 6
 He's probably getting decent money making videos and selling 50/1 merch. Why bother with WC's when it takes so much time and effort to compete with Gwin, Minnaar ect. Endless hours in the gym or out testing equipment to try and gain a second. And all this for only 8 races! 30 minutes on the track a year. An unlucky mechanical/injury and 25% of your season is wasted. Plus if you don't enjoy some of the WC tracks it would be pretty dumb dedicating a full year to go race 8 times.
  • + 4
 @freeskifreak, did you even watch his video? He never said it was about carbon footprint, that was just what everyone else has been saying!
  • + 6
 I've never once heard Ratty state that's this is the main reason why he's not racing WC DH this season, if there is a link then please post it.

You'd have to be blind to not see Ratty is hippy deep down and does post about environmental & other issues occasionally, but I'm also 100% confident most of the worlds top climate scientists use planes and fossil fuels, but that doesn't make them a hypocrite too apart from maybe to others that have no other argument or anything nice to say.
