A Slice of British B-Roll
Well, I couldn’t leave all of the leftover footage just sat on a hard drive could I? It’s no good there. I came back from the Lenzerheide World Cup and put together the footage that didn’t quite make the cut for you to enjoy. 16 whole minutes of raw sodding about infact. Mostly from LooseDog screaming his lungs out every time Sambo hits the deck. And also some whaling Ratboy vocals everytime Phil Atwill gets sideways. Anyway, enjoy the (second) show and take a gander at some behind the scenes shots below.
Phil Atwill and his old steed. He might be on a different brand now but his old Orange Five took one hell of a beating during the first segment of the film. All segment one images thanks to Alex Gann.
Josh ‘Ratboy’ Bryceland getting in those all important snapchats. It was bloody freezing atop that hill too (Bosley Cloud near Congleton for anyone who is wondering) and it was only the pumping blood that kept us warm. Oh and the custard creams.
We honestly don’t know how those slide marks got there, officer. We won’t be forgetting this segment in a hurry. Perhaps the most memorable lunchbreak in history. Gazzy B and a Sierra, what a great combination. All segment two shots thanks to Ben Winder.
Some shapes were thrown that day! Joe Smith as pinned as ever trying to stand the steed back up, and Gaz, well being Gaz. There was barely any lip there, he just pulled up and threw the first shape that came into his mind. That’s the effect Ben Winder has on you, he makes you a bit crazy.
Lots of hair, a few transit vans and a dinghy. Oh and fireworks and Poynton canal, what could possibly go wrong? Ps. I’m not sure what Josh Lewis is doing there and I’m pretty sure I never will.
Dave, good old Dave. Just look at the style on the boi. Sideways in John Lennon spec glasses and a lovely grainy image from Winder makes this look like a shot from the 60’s.
Sam Dale post berm log slide attempt number 10 perhaps? As far as days go, this one was a belter.
Well, erm, I mean it could be a good advert for Sombrio gloves?
The North East power houses. Pan shot Friday with Danny Hart, who happens to have just won his first World Cup, yes lad! And the most Geordie man ever, Scotty Mears relaxing in his shop, with a dog that presumably speaks Geordie too. Shots thanks to Dan Hearn.
Now then, Fort William, the one that everyone talks about. Minus bloody five and frozen ruts. Yet we asked Lachlan Blair the Mexican to lie down in frosty grass in only a shirt and have Liam apply factor 50 sun cream to his chest. Took a few go’s to get the sun cream out because that had frozen solid too. Fort William images thanks to Ben Winder.
As you’ve probably seen. These images did set the tone for the whole segment.
Here he is. The BFG. Big Ben Cathro himself understeering ever so gracefully around one of hundreds of dirty ruts that day.
The Brendog, Olly and Jono day. Crikey it was a laugh, and very very greasy. Perfect in my mind.
Jono Jones beaming with happiness, most definitely mid slide around this corner. He jibbed University off for the day to come filming (top lad) and then I had to send his Uni an official excuse that he was going to be in some fancy (not fancy at all) film. Easily one of the best days! Brendan/Olly shots thanks to Szymon Nieborak.
Ratboy sideways in Delamere. #DelamereAintDead
Oh christ. I forgot we took this bunch of nutters to Delamere. Dave, Rat and Phil Atwill all going at for a good bunch of riders there that day. It was such a good vibe. Here’s the man of the moment though, wingnut Phil Atwill. Images from Ben Winder
There we go then, we’re hanging up our coats on A Slice of British Pie. But may there be another one in the oven? Well, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled soon…
