 this this this. seriously leaving DH racing to come do this, I can tell he's been working on his whip! Nico you da bess for extending the invite to the Rat!
  • + 2
 he looks much happier now not having to ride those bike parky type trails.

 I love the Rat as much as anyone but let's give Craig Evans a shout too for being there and hitting all that stuff too. Both top lads!

 @murfio: True, shout out to Bas Van too for that matter!

 @imho4ep: You probably need to point out that you're being sarcastic. You know what people are like...

 I live in the same place as Craig Evans, I often bump into the 50:01 lads. I remember seeing Craig in Aldi at the end of last season when he f*cked his leg at Hardline, he said him and ratty were hoping to move away from races and hit up loosefest. So stoked for them that they've achieved it! Yoooiiiiii!!!

 "Just to keep it safe for everyone..." uh huh.

 I like how you're two 23-24 meter gaps into the track before things get serious.
  • + 8
 28 m. 88 ft drop. My god...
  • + 3
 @rockyflowtbay: bigger than rampage canyon gap:::: mind = blown Eek

 I like it when a person measures in metric system.
  • + 13
 that's probably because of the fact, that he doesn't have to make it sound bigger by multiplying everything by 3...
  • + 13
 That flat take off is insane. How do you fly 27 metres off that?!
  • + 11
 SPEED! and lots of it.
  • + 10
 It's cool seeing Josh Bryceland give such an honest opinion of these jumps.
  • + 4
 that's hilarious ... "23 or 24 meters, after this, it gets serious".

respect!

 Yeah thank you boys !!!! Because of you I say fuck of to my boss and I'm going to Chatel riding some jumps.
  • + 6
 This track is in Belgium ;-)
  • + 1
 @goessens: Vink line is Chatel though, proper scary, lots of wobblers on it, i think that only less than 1% can ride it to a decent level

 Tom Isted on fire!!! Backflipped one of the monster doubles as well. Awesome to have a local lad (Cornwall UK) absolutely smashing it
  • + 2
 I like the Fox chest/back protector Ratty and Andreu wear, anyone know if they're any good and how much they are?
  • + 1
 I have one it's called the rampage I think. It's beastly noticeable except on lifts when your sitting. It has side protection also. Pretty light for what it is. I think I paid $70 US for it.
  • + 1
 @trueeast: Thanks man, I take it they're pretty light then?
  • + 1
 Yes very light, but durable @McArdle:
  • + 1
 "Here we're at the first, slightly bigger jump..." riiiiiiiight, looks only "slightly" big to me (I slink backwards and disappear into bushes like Sean Spicer...)
  • + 2
 Stoked about the footage! Just hope all riders gonna stay survive the week without any serious injuries!
  • + 3
 at 2:06 he says "its honestly kind of chill." NOPE.
  • + 1
 Vink may be the worlds best builder these days! One hell of a stylish rider too!
  • + 1
 This is awesome. They should do something like this for every fest event. Gives you much better perspective.

 Niko, Build it and they will come! Go Rat!
