Gee Atherton @ revolution Bike Park
Its a lot different, I enjoyed Antur but it felt a lot like a steep trail centre and quite easy and i’m far from being amazing at DH, whereas Revolution felt more natural, maybe it was the trees, a lot muddier and more testing.
I cant compare it with Cwmcarn, i’ve never been
EDIT We must of enjoyed it, the group I went with are booking Revolution again in June 😆Posted 4 years agogrumMember
Looks pretty straightforward tbh
Can’t wait to see the video of you riding it. I know stuff never looks as steep on video but this place is the most extreme example of that IMO.
It’s a great place but I need to work on my balls and fitness before I go back there.
Edit: hmmm ‘work on my balls’ is perhaps an unfortunate turn of phrase… 😳Posted 4 years agomegaMember
wow – thanks for sharing that
the quarry video further down the page is imo even more impressive
I’ve done a chest cam vid of me mincing down a 1m drop and it looks like a kerb in the vid, so the jumps those guys are hitting must be rather large indeed given the camera flattens it all out and they look flipping massive in the vid

nigew, I kind of see what you mean about Antur, but how would you fancy racing the Black run? I can ride down it, but the idea of racing it is pretty scary to me.Black powder on the other hand would be great to race.
Revolution is a great venue and has a good mix of tech and flow, with some nice jumps to finish. That video bares no resemblence to when I was riding it, Gee’s speed is frankly ridiculous, but holy flattening effect Batman!Posted 4 years agozangolinMember
Revolution defo worth a visit. Been 3 times in the last 18 months. Not ridden the top half of the new track in the video but all looks nice and ‘rollable’. Other tracks are steep in places but all ridable . Can get pretty muddy on the other tracks but a pair of spikes soon sorts that out. Really does bring your skill levels up after a day of riding there. Good uplift and bike friendly trailers.Posted 4 years agojamiedMember
Some of you asked for it, so here it is… Gee’s super fast run head to head with a mortal being.Posted 4 years ago
