Video: The Syndicate, Episode 4 - Role Swap at Crankworx Les Gets

Jul 18, 2018 at 14:32
by Steel City Media  

As the sun rises over the Alps in Les Gets, France, two warriors emerge from the mist. Backed by former and future World Champions, these two heroes will battle for supremacy on the beloved DH track at Crankworx Les Gets. To the West is Jason Marsh, a wily dog past his prime, but capable of vigorous displays of Old Man Strength. To the East is PA Roche, the young gun behind the young gun, predisposed by birth to excited outbursts and sketchy lines.

Unusually, the combatants share a corner-man, and the die-hard devotee of pancakes and bacon will have to navigate European supply lines in order to keep the warriors at the top of their game. Animating the battle is the Old Dog, the Kashima King, the Duvel Devil, the one and only Steve Peat.

Who will emerge victorious? Who will fight another day? Who will eat Luca's cooking? Touch gloves and come out fighting!

 Not his fault, in France due to another stupid EU law banning plastic bags, the supermarkets make you pay for a bag -and most of the time the bag they sell is made of ... plastic-. And the bags to buy are hidden under the register. Just to give you the finger in case you really need it I guess. So I won't blame the american on this one

 @Euskafreez: It's a good law, just bring a reusable shopping bag and you will be just fine. Saving the environment starts with small actions like these.

 making people think about buying a plastic bag is a good step. People tend to re used more durable bags now. Some people even plan ahead and carry a rucksack!!! Simple step to reduce plastic usage

 @chri92: I agree that reusable bags are the way to go. Even more important is what you put in them.

 Come on guys, you could do better down voting my post!

It doesn't make anything I said less true. You think less plastic bags in Europe will make a change? Lmao ... Europe is not the problem when it comes to plastic bags, third world countries are. Where do you think the plastic bags ending in the Ocean come from? Not Europe ...

And for all the green warriors, I bet your bikes are made out of steel. Because aluminium frames are not recycled -since they are not pure aluminium it costs too much to do-. And no carbon fiber as well ha ha ha.

I bet it's time for me to do some rolling coal.

 @Euskafreez:
Of course a whole continent using less plastic bags will make a difference you silly sausage. It’s a lot of the world right there.
Lead by example

If people don't buy them, no one will make them. We gotta start somewhere - vote with your wallet - it's ALL THEY HEAR!

If you choose which team to be on, it would have to be the Syndicate.
