The film will feature Josh “Ratboy” Bryceland, Josh “Loosedog” Lewis, Kirt Voreis, Chris Kovarik, Claire Buchar, Connor Fearon, the McCaul’s, to name a few.
It was shot over three weeks on the road with a wild crew up that was up for anything.
Filming kicked off at Fox Headquarters in Irvine, California and continued north through Oregon and Washington before crossing the Canadian border and reaching Vancouver Island. As the name suggests, the movie is all about good times on your bike with friends.
“Filming the movie was a great experience intended to strip back the sport and get down to the core of riding bikes. It’s all in the title, ‘Ride Your F#%king Bike’ and the hope is that this will inspire people to just have a good time riding.” – Mike Redding, MTB Sports Marketing
The movie is dedicated to Stevie Smith, A.K.A. Chainsaw, a World Cup champion gravity athlete who unexpectedly passed away in May 2016.
Undoubtedly one of the most naturally gifted riders on the downhill circuit, 2014 was the year where Ratboy finally delivered on his talent to produce a consistent set of results.
A rich vein of form saw him record his first ever World Cup win at Leogang, quickly followed by another victory at Windham, while he also became the British National Champion for the first time.
With the 2015 World Cup on the horizon, we met up with fun-loving Josh on his narrow boat home in Manchester, England, to reflect on his incredible season last year and to see how he’s recovered from the busted foot he sustained at the World Championships in Norway.
The UCI Downhill World Cup treated us to one of its classic seasons this year and following it every step along the way for us, bringing you all the best action from trackside were the Parkin Brothers of Orpheus Productions.
They were baked, drowned, scorched and soaked intermittently all year hauling cameras all over the world’s fastest DH tracks. When it came to an end of season package then we decided to ask for the ultimate; no filler, all thriller!

There are always one or two shots that come out of a race weekend that get everyone excited to go out and ride. Shots that demonstrate the kind of sublime skill needed to make a big bike dance on the very edge of adhesion. Whips, scrubs, gaps… It had to be the very best.
The above video clip doesn’t tell the story of a timed session or feature blow-by-blow tracking of one of 2014’s epic battles, it’s simply about all those best shots being tied together in just one place. The best of the best, the best of the Wildmen. Enjoy!
In what has been an incredible year for downhill racing there’s no doubt we witnessed one of the best ever World Championships in Hafjell.
A chainless run from Neko Mulally astounded everyone by topping the men’s standings for a short time while Josh Bryceland seemingly snatched defeat from the jaws of the victory by overcooking the last bridge jump as he threatened to beat the leading time of Gee Atherton. In the end, Gee Atherton and Manon Carpenter took the World titles with the British team enjoying a 1-2 in elite men and a 1-2-3 in the elite women.
The boys from Orpheus Productions bring you the best of the action from an exciting finale to the 2014 season.
Wow, what a track for the final round of the UCI World Cup Downhill series!
From the looks of Claudio’s preview, it’s a very natural track, with plenty of un-ridden surfaces and it looks to be widely taped off. This all translates to exciting racing, with the riders able to make line choices and crafty decisions to get the most out of each run.
Tune in to RedBull.com for the finals, 1.50am, Saturday night Sydney time. Woo!
The Santa Cruz Syndicate are constantly testing new products as they maraude around the globe on their UCI World Cup campaign. Sometimes these products have subtle adapations that demand a trained eye to pick up on. Other times it’s a little more obvious.
The rat was out of the bag when Josh Bryceland won the UK National Championships on an unmarked vehicle in Innerleithen on July 20th.
So, while we’re unable to confirm ANY details about the bikes the guys are racing on in Mont Sainte Anne, we’re not going to deny that what you see here isn’t happening…
