bigquotesJosh Bryceland is one-half talent, one-half insane. Taking his Moterra Neo LT to the biggest jumps he could find, he discovered how hard an LT can go.

 Wasn't he all about the environment and stopped flying to DH races a couple of years ago ?

 Stay in school, kids.

 C'mon now. Traveling to a jump session is a far cry from jet setting multiple continents on the World Cup circuit with spare bikes, team staff, etc.

 @trillwill: wonder if he knows about the lithium mining process for the battery on that bike?

 If i remember correctly via an interview that he later gave, his retirement from racing to limit emissions was a misattribution of something he said and wasn't the reason.

 @yakimonti: yeah stop digging in a specific place with a conservation effort. Not stop digging period l, cmon now

 @yakimonti: disingenuous as he was talking about a specific spot, the UK is small and mostly privately owned. Working with land management is the smart play

 @aaronjb: Apparently you haven't been informed what schools and Universities teach today Frown

With that, Kids are better off outside of classrooms (IM NOT KIDDING, Pun intended!)

 @ecd2004: Correct. I believe he was simply, and understandably, burnt out. Another UK racer retired around the same time (can't remember their name) for environmental based reasons so all those rumors just stuck onto Ratty because he looks like he fits the description.

 I thought the reason he quit was because he missed ganja. Also, he'd already won the overall title so nothing else to prove.

 @yakimonti: he asked people to stop digging there because he has taken the land on as a long-term re-wilding project. He has actually built some incredible trails there, only they are in logical locations, away from footpaths. He has done an incredible job, not that you understand or probably care.

 The single biggest impact a person can have to reduce their carbon footprint is to go vegetarian or vegan.

 Uh-oh. Ultimate Pinkbike Bro icon Rat Boy on an eBike? Massive cognitive dissonance in 3, 2, 1…

 It’s like the immovable object vs the unstoppable force!!

 Used to be a fan of the guy. When he raced.

 If an ebike is what it takes to keep this legend riding, then i guess i am all for it.

 It’s not, it’s just what he’s getting paid for

 That is such a cynical take. I know he used to shred back in the day, but don't forget he is getting older.

 @IntoTheEverflow: wth?? hes 32 years old you dipshit. not 72. I started riding at 39. now 49 & I will smash a lot of riders half my age. no shi#. also Josh is cruising for fun these days - so lazy rides in my opinion.

 I wish he put out more content. Him and Mitch Ropelato. Two riders that are so skilled, but never put any content out.

 E-Bike but loading the shuttle?

no fault to him, everyone needs to do what needs to be done to get paid sometimes.

 A tractor for a shuttle, that has to be the slowest shuttle EVAR! On an E-Bike, he could pumped out 5 or 6 laps before it made it to the top.

 Pink Bike comments section last few years, you can't ride e-bike downhill, shredd, get air, do anything....Josh in one fell swoop makes all of the keyboard warriors look like losers. Ha Ha

 today was the day I had to turn on closed captions for a fella speaking English. I swear he's getting harder to understand lol.
  • 1 1
 Interesting. I was able to understand him just fine.
  • 2 2
 I guess he doesn't care about the imminent global Lithium rape of the earth for batteries (especially in the Lithium Triangle in South America).

Nevertheless, God Save The Rat.

 Until you ride one and ride further and longer than ever before. In the same amount of time. Like it or not, E-bikes are going to keep the industry alive and thriving well into the future. Resistance is futile. Lol

 Did you notice he was on a petrol bike too? And on an unassisted bike? And on a trailer of a tractor? And on his feet? Please be very specific with your disapproval. Hate this, that's ok, that too, that's wrong though, that's not...

Please go ahead, if that's what you came here for.
