Deathgrip – No brakes downhill challenge

Here's part 2 with Brendan Fairclough And Olly Wilkins


What happens when you enter a high-speed downhill corner with no brakes? Sometimes disaster, sometimes magic. There is science to the magic though as often, bike handling can take the place of two handfuls of brakes. Excessive braking can result in loss of traction, control and flow so its minimal, early use ha merit.

These three characters, explore the limits of this concept with a brakeless downhill competition. And make no mistake, although they constantly clown around, Brendan and Ollie are two of the best bike handlers in the world. The host, Blake is a pro level rider as well. So don’t try this at home!!
