When it’s cold and grey in Europe, New Zealand offers prime conditions to sharpen one's riding skills. No wonder that most top downhill racers have added Crankworx Rotorua to their schedules. Among them: Phil Atwill on his brand new Propain Rage Carbon.

Phil Atwill is on Fire

In the upcoming world cup season, Ben Reid’s boys will pilot Propain’s new Rage Carbon bike. Excessive testing during offseason showed some promising results and we lock forward seeing it pay off in the World Cup this year. Good Luck to Phil Atwill, David Trummer and the Kerr Twins.

Phil Atwill is on Fire

bigquotesHere we have a first look at one of the teams 2017 race bikes. After Propain signed with the Dirt team end of 2015 the first project was designing a bike that would become our race machine for the 2017 season. With the alloy bike already having such great riding characteristics we already had a solid platform to work off and to base any small changes for the first Carbon prototype. The goals for the new Carbon frame were simple, to make it lighter and stiffer maintaining the same balanced riding performance while offering usable sizing adjustments both at the head tube and rear axle and what you see here is one of the first production frames in our team spec and colours. We are very proud, the last 12 months of testing has resulted in such a beauty and we thought you guys might enjoy a closer look as well. For the moment this is just a first look to show off our new team bikes however please keep an eye on the Dirt website after World Cup #1 in Lourdes for a full bike check.Team manager Ben Reid

 That manual to nose wheelie might be the most bitchin maneuver I've ever seen!!!!

 My honest reaction to that last scene was: jaw drop and then "you f*cker!"

 @ezwheels: I don't follow many riders, but this guy is probably my fave to watch.

 100% jump to manual, the crowd woots... then the unexpected smooth transition to nose wheelie, & jaws dropped.

 @CarlMega: And no matter what he does it just looks like a kid goofing around. Meanwhile 8 foot gaps are cause for concern when I ride.

 I put my arms into the air double fisted when he did the manual rear landing to nose manual landing. Victory! Also great edit on the perfect timed nose bonk with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE - best album to date!

 LOL I did have to mute. Excellent video though. COME ON PHIL, you can crack the workdcup this year.

 I'm starting to prefer these styled 'shredits' rather than cinematographic slo-mo edits with 1min intros to them...

 @XCMark: you keep her in the garage?

 @dmn89: Bedroom has too much in it. Would get in the way in the living room as well as get the nice carpet dirty. My little nephews wont climb all over them when they stop by. It's right next to the tools. I happen to spend a lot of time in the connected garage.

When taking a nap on a one night bike trip, I might cuddle with it. You know, to keep it from getting scared.

 Is there a better guy for a marketing department than Phil Atwill? I have never seen or interacted with Propain bikes outside of Pinkbike and yet will watch every one of these videos many, many times because of this freakin' guy.
  • + 3
 I don't know quite what it is but every time I see Phil ride, it just makes me smile. However it's just not quite the same without Tom Caldwell's signature #panandzoomrevolution filming! Love ya Tom.

 I've often thought about using RATM for the soundtrack to an edit, but always decided you need riding skills way beyond mine to justify it. This just proves I was right!

 Rad rider, rad riding, great tune. I forgot how good that Rage album is.
