Pick-Up Truck Vs Mountain Bike | Ex-World Cup Downhiller Races A 4×4


(crunching sound) – Blake can you give me a
hand with these bikes please? – Yeah, for sure, hang on. – Just check ’em over. – Oh yeah, real good. That’s perfect. Ready Neil? Can’t wait. Oh oh oh, can’t wait. Buckle up Neil. Ready? Let’s go. – Blake we’re doing some downhill runs and we’ve got the perfect uplift vehicle, a Mercedes Benz X Class so thanks to them. What do you reckon, we’re
going to do loads in Portugal. – Oh Neil, it’s the first time right here. But we couldn’t look
any more mountain bike than we are right now in this pick up with bikes on the back. – You know what, the
first round of next years World Cup Downhill’s
going to be here as well, so we get a little sneak peak. – Oh we’ve been, well… Unofficially officially been
told we can test the track. – [Neil] Really?
– [Blake] No. That’s a lie. – Do you reckon this is the top? – Cause we’ve been going for a long time. – Yeah. Look, there’s the tracks, just over there. – Oh there’s the tracks, yeah! It’s a big hill. – Oh it’s rough. Neil, rough, Neil. – Oh it’s so majestic
looking with this fog. I love riding in the fog. – Nice. – Just makes it more mountain bike. – Ready to rock and flipping roll. Neil, this is going to be the best. You ready?
– I’m ready. – Oh dude, it’s started
chucking it down Neil, so good. Have you got your, you’ve got your helmet. Where’s my helmet? (dramatic music) Where is my helmet Neil? – Where’s your helmet? I haven’t seen your helmet. (dramatic music) (blows a raspberry) You’ve forgotten it?
– Yep. I haven’t got my helmet. – All right. – I haven’t got my helmet. – Tell you what, I’ll
race ya to the bottom. – Race?
– Yeah. – Neat. – Slowest one has to drive
the next uplift as well. – Oh no, that could be me again Neil. – Could be. Watch this. – Watch this Neil, you ready? – You ready? – Three…
Go. – Ah, ya cheat. – Can’t let Neil beat me. (dramatic music) Ohhh, where is he? Oh man. Can’t believe I’ve forgotten my helmet. (dramatic music) Oh man, I love off roading. (dramatic music) Ah there’s Neil. Yeah! Oh he’s so close. He was bombing! It is wet out there. (dramatic music) Whoa you don’t want to go down there. Do not want to roll down there. (dramatic music) Whoa dude. (dramatic music) Oh, muddy muddy bottom. (dramatic music) Oh, we’ve got an obstacle coming up. Somewhat of a fallen down tree. This is definitely going to slow me down, while Neil’s flying down the mountain. Whoa, close to that branch. He’s back on it. (dramatic music) – Whoa. (dramatic music) – I feel like Neil’s going
to be quite quick down here. (dramatic music) Ohhh, a bit rocky here. (dramatic music) Oh we’re coming to the end. (dramatic music) (bird song)
(gentle music) Oh, we’ve come to the end. This is the end, this is
the end, this is the end. I’m on the tarmac now,
I feel a lot quicker. Look at that. Has he made it? Has he made it? What the hell, no way! How the hell! Did you get down here Neil? You should still be racing World Cups. (mumbles) Neil? How did you get down here
quicker than a pick up? – Yeah. – All right, fair. Look at the state of you. – Look at the state of that pick up. – Well you know, I just, I
didn’t have that much fun. I did (clears throat) – Enjoy the drive? – I enjoyed the drive Neil, but I think riding down
is more fun than driving. – Tell you what, there’s
some amazing tracks up there. Seen some of the World Cup Downhill track. – You did?
– Yeah. – I don’t want to touch
that Neil, sounds gnarly. World Cup sounds gnarly. – Right, back on, another run? – Yes please Neil. Can I have a go? – Not yet. I’ll let you have one run
at the end of the day. If you want to see another video, featuring Mercedes, the ultimate vehicle for a mountain biker. Click down there for that one. – Yep, don’t forget to hit the (stammers) subscribe. Because you’re missing
out on some rad stuff. – Is that a cool new song? – That is a new song Neil. Give us a thumbs up like if
you love pick ups and bikes. (shouts indistinctly)

  1. This could have been a decent imitation of Sam Hil v ATV/ Alister McRae, but GMBN always seem strangely adverse to showing Neil shredding. Apparently tightly cropped slo mo puddle splashing is what the audience wants?

  2. Riding with flats instead of cleats. Interesting .I am riding with cleats but I think in some conditions I would maybe prefer to ride with flats. Both have their purpose.

  3. Watch mountainbikers drive cars. that's the content I'm here for. Burning fuel is so last century.

  4. Dear GMBN, guys, this is just all kinds of wrong! Not only do you as nature and health loving mountainbikers sell out for a fossil car company. It's also a car company that still tries to sell highly inefficient, poisonous, old tech diesel cars at any cost to sportive people like us. And they even offer a battery electric car, the EQC, but are apparently still required to sell their old cars to ignorant people to make any profit.
    This is really disappointing, and frankly really disgusting as well. I hope you can one day repeat this test with a clean air truck like the Cybertruck or a Rivian.

  5. If you have the comments on at the beginning of the video Neil is asking Blake for help with the "bodies" while looking in the bed of the truck!

  6. come on blake, you're the best of GBMN and that's just a cheap copy of "Sam Hill beat an ATV" only with the worst driver,

  7. Until Mercedes starts to build bikes, I won't buy a Mercedes!
    Most people live in cities, and in future even more people going to move to cities. And there is not enough space for everyone driving around big 4×4. So Mercedes, waiting for a bike with a star.

  8. I believe that this was the trail gods saying you didn't pay for the decent therefore I make you lose your helmet

  9. A Nissan Navara with with Mercedes badges and ugly heater vents slapped on. Do the chassis' still have a habit of snapping in half?

  10. 4WD? Lol. Love vids guys but you needed a Troopy and off road not a wanna be 4WD with no lift or ATs/muddies on a graded fire trail

  11. i think I'm a natural with mtb bikes cause after my dad taught me how to ride i instantly learned skills like connering, drifting ,control ,pumping and i even made my very own trick which envolves me dangling my legs it helps me block my friends whenever we do races and also help me turn faster on corners

  12. 9/10 cinematography. Beautiful colour and tones (might be the weather), sharp as heeell, but some shots are a bit too short for action sequences.
    Overall good job mates, makes me wanna race someone on my hardtail XC. Would L O V E to see more like this

  13. Loved it! Maybe blake was scared of racing you on the bike, and left the helmet purposely! Hahah. Amazing video!

  14. #askGMBN: Just a Suggestion: What about a feature about trail dogs – wheels & paws? Which dog breed can endure long rides? Are there points to look at picking your trails, planning your tour? How does it affect your riding, planning brakes, baggage: carrying along dog nutrition, …? need the dog be specially trained, does the dog have to learn to pay attention to special commands? Perhaps also a chance to break up the masculine domain?

  15. The level of professionalism in the videography lately is off the charts. Hats off to the guys behind the cameras (and computers). Even in a frivolous video like this one, the visuals are superb and make it worth watching. The race with Sam Hill was another recent standout as well. Extremely well done!

  16. #askgmbn Hey Gmbn crew, when is the Gmbn water proof winter jacket going to be back in stock? Loving all the awesome content, keep up the good work.
