Who needs six inches of rear suspension travel when zero will do? Rob dis Willis absolutely RIPS the DH and freeride trails at Hopton Woods and Kinver Freeride park on a hardtail in this fast-paced edit.
This YouTube comment sums it up best: “bro you are absolutely insane most people wouldn’t be riding that fast on brand new modern 5K DH bikes let alone hitting the huge gaps and drops your doing and your doing it on a bike from the early 2000s with no rear sus…. mega props!!!!!!”
Rob’s bike is a 2003 .243 Racing DH hardtail with a 2002 Marzocchi Shiver DC fork. The bike has a 26″ wheel up front and a 24″ in the rear making it a mini-mullet.
W00t! This is how I ride in my dreams haha.
A fantasy for me.
Thanks for not cluttering up the video with a soundtrack! I much prefer to see and hear it raw. The sounds of the tires is better than some canned music!
