So stoked for josh, looks like he's having the time of his life out there. Amazing how massive but well built those jumps are
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:11)
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!
(Jul 19, 2017 at 21:17)
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!
(Jul 19, 2017 at 22:49)
: True, shout out to Bas Van too for that matter!
(Jul 20, 2017 at 14:27)
: 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!!!

I love those intimate moments with the Rat! Fun time, all the time!

"Just to keep it safe for everyone..." uh huh.
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:06)
I like how you're two 23-24 meter gaps into the track before things get serious.
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:25)
28 m. 88 ft drop. My god...
(Jul 20, 2017 at 2:05)
: bigger than rampage canyon gap:::: mind = blown
(Jul 19, 2017 at 21:43)
I like it when a person measures in metric system.
(Jul 20, 2017 at 5:20)
that's probably because of the fact, that he doesn't have to make it sound bigger by multiplying everything by 3...
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:19)
That flat take off is insane. How do you fly 27 metres off that?!
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:51)
SPEED! and lots of it.
(Jul 19, 2017 at 17:31)
It's cool seeing Josh Bryceland give such an honest opinion of these jumps.
(Jul 19, 2017 at 19:54)
that's hilarious ... "23 or 24 meters, after this, it gets serious".
(Jul 20, 2017 at 1:31)
In Belgium, we don't have mountain, but great ideas :-)
Some photos & videos from LooseFest 2016 :
(Jul 19, 2017 at 16:59)
Yeah thank you boys !!!! Because of you I say fuck of to my boss and I'm going to Chatel riding some jumps.
(Jul 20, 2017 at 1:57)
This track is in Belgium ;-)
(Jul 23, 2017 at 8:35)
: 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
(Jul 23, 2017 at 11:09)
Tom Isted on fire!!! Backflipped one of the monster doubles as well. Awesome to have a local lad (Cornwall UK) absolutely smashing it
(Jul 20, 2017 at 14:14)
I like the Fox chest/back protector Ratty and Andreu wear, anyone know if they're any good and how much they are?
(Jul 20, 2017 at 16:06)
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.
(Jul 21, 2017 at 12:35)
: Thanks man, I take it they're pretty light then?
(Jul 25, 2017 at 18:52)
Yes very light, but durable
(Jul 20, 2017 at 10:53)
"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...)
(Jul 20, 2017 at 3:36)
Stoked about the footage! Just hope all riders gonna stay survive the week without any serious injuries!
(Jul 19, 2017 at 20:27)
at 2:06 he says "its honestly kind of chill." NOPE.
(Jul 20, 2017 at 13:14)
Vink may be the worlds best builder these days! One hell of a stylish rider too!
(Jul 21, 2017 at 0:53)
This is awesome. They should do something like this for every fest event. Gives you much better perspective.
(Jul 19, 2017 at 19:26)
Niko, Build it and they will come! Go Rat!
(Jul 22, 2017 at 1:48)
Bud in Married with children? :-)

Content this year is so SWEET! Keep it coming!
(Jul 21, 2017 at 1:59)
I've got sweaty hands just from watching it....
(Jul 19, 2017 at 18:17)
Where is Lacondeguy??
(Jul 19, 2017 at 18:25)
He just got here a few hours ago
(Jul 19, 2017 at 21:37)
: PLEASE, post as much content as you can. This is amazing.
(Jul 20, 2017 at 1:01)
: Will do man! We have a packed release plan, so there'll be tonnes of updates this week!
(Jul 20, 2017 at 2:23)
He doesn't need a warm up!
(Jul 20, 2017 at 8:46)
: Lacondeguy is always warmed up.
(Jul 25, 2017 at 3:41)

(Jul 19, 2017 at 18:52)
I think I just loosed my fest!
(Jul 20, 2017 at 0:07)
How big is the moto gap? 30m?
(Jul 19, 2017 at 19:12)
Yeah Ratty!!! Have it!!!
(Jul 19, 2017 at 20:32)
this is madness
