Video: 'Slimy Like That Feta' is Phil Atwill's Last Rip on a Propain

Dec 30, 2018 at 7:35
by Propain Factory Racing  

Phil Atwill dealt with some unfinished business out in Greece after he couldn't shoot all the sections he wanted for his Gamble segment due to his huge wipe out while filming last year. This video shows Phil shredding some of these sections on his 2019 Propain Tyee out in Athens!

This marks our last ever video as team 'Propain Dirt Sixpack' and is also Phil's last season as a Propain rider.



Starting with Phil back in 2015 after seeing huge potential in him as more than just a racer it was exciting to use the teams media network to show Phil as a rider on and off the bike and its been mega to help Phil grow in the eyes of the media over the past few years as well as watch him take his first World Cup podium. If you have seen our edits with Phil over the past 4 years you will know they are always something a little special and this one is no exception! The team and all sponsors would like to take this opportunity to thank Phil for his time with the team and we wish him all the best with his new team in 2019!

- Ben Reid Team Manager.

 I rode up gondola with Phil at MSA last year. He’s super chill and answered all my dorky questions about his career in racing. Thanks Phil. Good luck this season and shred hard.

 Super nice guy, always talks to anyone and he can hop a wheelie bin so he's got some skills as well

 Holy cr@p!! I never thought that last section could ever be ridden like that! We call the trail "Sparta". Literally stoked to watch him ride our home trails. Wishing you all the best for your upcoming race season! Yeowww!

 The way he casually cruises down the trail is unbelievable if you are familiar with the spot.

 When you know the trails you find this stuff 10x more amazing to watch. Cameras squash everything. A good example is if you've ridden Revolution Bike Park or Warncliffe Woods and then watch the 50/01 videos... It's like yeah there's more to this than I thought

 Got the skill, got the style and got the attitude to go to the top step, with any luck it'll be a great off season and he'll come into the season fully fit because he's had shithouse luck with injury. Good luck Phil, great edit again

 When I see Phil Atwill, I click. Just love his style. He’s like the 50:1 rider that always forgets to Show up with the crew.

 I love the Atwill riding vids! I'm checking out the Propain website configurator BECAUSE of Phill! Shame he is leaving. I hope it means he got better money somewhere else. He made those Propain bikes shine though!

 One of the most stylish to ever do the damn thing. He's already shown he can fuk with top level DH'ers, and if he ever moves to enduro he'll be another top contender. Freak rips.

 Too true. His suspension setup is as creamy as Egyptian feta. I'm guessing that's a Selva R with an EXT on an XL Tyee with a 50mm stem. Bike check already. Phil makes it look like a much smaller bike, but he's using every mm. Would love to know how many tires and/or frames were destroyed in the making of this.

 -1 is improbable. 2//0 would have been more credible/desireable. German mice have spoken.

Update: disses feta; moves to Greece

 Phil can do better than Vee Tire Co, right?

 They were showing off some pretty decent meats at InterBike. Very much minion knockoffs. I’m sure they’re developing them at the request of the team rides no?
  • + 1
 @Trudeez: Most recent Pinkbike review pooped on em... Only person I know that ran them hated them as well.

Maybe they're improving..?

 Vee know what they're doing and their Tyres are good we've put a load of work in with them boys this year
  • + 1
 @PhilipAtwill: So you don't race blacked out Maxxis like so many others? lol
  • + 10
 @Trouterspace: No mate, Vee made a good 5 or so prototype tyres to get to the tyre we currently race on
  • + 1
 @Trouterspace: when was that? They certainly looked the business at IB, but then again I didn’t get to ride them.
  • + 5
 @PhilipAtwill: however... sad to see you leave Propain. I gues you, David and Robert had no real issues with each other. So there are some other reasons. Whatever and wherever - GOOD LUCK, man!
  • + 2
 @PhilipAtwill: thanks for the replies man. Maybe I'll give them a shot if they're the real deal.
