    12:21 guy taking a cool off in what appears to be drinking water. Not cool. Take a bottle, fill it up an pour water on your head.

  4. Epic video, that scenery is stunning, even better than South Wales! What an experience.

  5. How many blown Levo motors? LOL

    Something insane! Unfortunately such a thing costs a lot of money, not only equipment, but tickets, hostel, food, registration fee. Ordinary people from Eastern Europe can not afford it. They usually live for 300-500$ per month.
    Hope, one day we all live in communism. And every man on the planet could afford such event!

  7. No one at all to say that the industry of bike see all of us as stupid… If a bike price is about 10.000 $ so there are no motor bike to buy under 100.000 $ hahaha

  8. Nothing short of amazing.

  9. Great vid.
    Can’t believe a Levo failed lol.

  10. 9:47 …dang that is pretty extreme!

  11. SO jealous!

  12. nice video!! would be wonderful in 4k

  13. Nice Video, thumb-up! 1080 sucks! where is the 4k?

  14. Awesome, hats off to the whole team

  15. Hope Chris didn’t have Covid!

    Just watched again, on the last day of 2020, a year with no annual pilgrimage to the Alps.

    What a cracking video. Super scenery and a great race. Issues concerning weight differences I guess but.. just so entertaining to watch.

    Thanks for this. Totally enjoyed it and could almost feel being there.

  18. These are the MTB vids I love to Watch. It looked like an epic ride!! Congrats!!!

  19. EVOC do a nice ‘e-pack’ that’ll hold a battery securely.

  20. awesome, but 4 batteries a day at £750-800 a pop…plus the Bike itself – unfortunately not

  21. Wow!!!

  22. Another blown Brose. Good work, Steve!

  23. Is there a power level limit your ebike has to meet for those races?

  24. Greeeeeeeat video 👍👍👍 …….not the best advertising for Levo engines thou ….

  25. I rode for 20 miles the other day in Bentonville, Arkansas and my butt bones hurt so bad after I couldn’t ride for the next two days. I hadn’t ridden in year before that though.

  26. Богдан Левицький April 9, 2021 @ 11:45 pm

    Chris from Ukraine?

  27. What an amazing video. Congrats to all at EMBN. Spectacular to watch.. Steve Jones is a class act in so many ways..!

  28. pizzagorgonzola April 9, 2021 @ 11:47 pm

  29. For me this race would be ok but i would rather do it as a fun ride without the hurry factor.

  30. Respect.

  31. Omg I’m so jealous

  32. damn euro is so beautiful

  33. new motor for brose levo? how shocking is that…lol

  34. My butt hurts just watching this for three days seriously demanding!

  35. Electric Mountain Bike Network April 9, 2021 @ 11:53 pm

    Would you race this event? Let us know!

  36. thks

  37. Tom Rosencrantz April 9, 2021 @ 11:58 pm

    I’d love to see you do a video just on some of the aspects that you can share regarding what you learned about your use of battery efficiency, when you’d use certain power modes and perhaps what you know about this information, regarding some of the podium racers? How did they use their power settings? The strategies around power consumption would be a great video, for events like this. There certainly will be more events popping up in the future, once Covid subsides. Great video!

  38. Top , top and top video. I love it, well done.

  39. Crazy ride! Fabrice is in great shape for 51! 💪🏽

  40. Was Chris one of the first to get Covid?

  41. That was absolutely awesome . I know all of those areas from snowboarding on them so can really appreciate how hard that must be on emtb. Well done 👍

  42. Incredible footage … and race!

  43. That looked like an epic adventure i have been looking at walking that route

  44. gyönyörű egyzer
    el tudnam kepzelni magam ott

  45. Id have a go at that in a heartbeat!

  46. My Basements on Fire April 10, 2021 @ 12:11 am

    You seem worried

  47. bon appetit

  48. The amount of bloody adverts in this ,its disgraceful,wonderhow many people turned off because of it,spoils it

  49. you can literally ride on a regular mtb where you take the e bikes.

  50. Great work guys. Very inspirational.
