Josh Bryceland
THE RAT BOY
Before riding mountain bikes, Josh had a love for motorcycles and a dream of racing motorcross like his Dad. Motivated by the MBUK video, "Dirt" and the riding styles of the likes of Steve Peat, Rober Warner, James McRoy and Will Longden, he quickly found his passion. Mentored by Steve Peat himself, Josh "Ratboy" Bryceland emerged as one of the most talented riders in DH. After multiple UCI Junior DH World Cup Championships, he ran through the competition to receive the honor of UCI DH World Cup Champion in 2014. Fox presented Josh with an epic boom box painted to represent the flag of the United Kingdom with the words, "God Save The Rat" for his championship. Josh's outgoing personality and wild antics have not only made him a fan favorite, but a favorite to win the UCI Downhill World Cup year after year.

Loïc Bruni is the new MTB World Champion! | 9/11/17

Welcome to Cairns! This Australian track is unlike any other so far this year year: very, very fast, super loose, and due to the dry weather, more dusty than ever with some tough pedaling sections which made it extremely physical too!

 

Super Bruni

 

Loïc Bruni, 1st Place!

Just over a year ago, Loïc Bruni won his first ever World Cup on this track, so he was well aware of what could be possible here. The local crowd were cheering for hometown hero Mick Hannah, who stayed on the hot seat for much of the day, and looked as if he had possibly done enough to take the title. Unfortunately for the Aussies, Loïc became 'Super Bruni' again and laid down a superlative run to take the lead by only .039 of a second. Nobody was able to go faster, and the time stood, making Loic World Champion for his second time in his short career!

 

Finish Line

 

He said: “It's unbelievable, I worked so hard all year and the luck was on my side today! My team-mate Miranda did it in the women's category just before, so I just followed her lead. It's incredible, the run was crazy, it was super loose so I didn't know what to expect because I knew Mick was super fast. So when I saw I was in front of him I was super happy but still super stressed out about the other guys so to hold on until the end was insane!”

 

 

Final Run

 

Loris Vergier, 7th

Close friend Loris Vergier was the first to congratulate Loic, and was pretty stoked with his 7th place as well: “I felt really bad on the top sections the whole week and I was just hoping for a top 10. 7th is great for me! I though Mick had the title already, but when I saw Loïc beat him, it was unreal. It's always good to see him winning!”

 

 

 

Connor Fearon

 

Connor Fearon, 24th

After missing the two last World Cups because of injury, the Aussie hoped to be back to 100% in time for World Champs. He gave his best even if he wasn't completely recovered: “It was too soon to ride 100% but I'm still happy with how I rode. I've had surgery on my hand only 6 weeks ago so I couldn't expect too much. I can't wait to be back healthy to ride my bike and start preparing for next season!”

 

Seagrave

 

Tahnee Seagrave, 11th

Two days before finals, she was the fastest during timed training. Deciding to risk it all in pursuit of the title she pushed too hard in the unpredictable dusty conditions and crashed: “I pushed a bit too much today and crashed... This race was mental! I'm glad the other girls pushed so hard as well, we all wanted the title so much. I don't mean it's nice to see everybody going down, but the fact we were all so competitive was awesome!”.

 

Finn Iles

 

 

Finn Iles, 10th Junior Mens

After winning six World Cups this year and wearing the rainbow stripes from last years World Champs win, Finn Iles was feeling the pressure on his shoulders to prove once again he can be the fastest rider of his generation. Unfortunately, a few things went wrong on race day: “I felt really good during my last practice run, but just before my race run, I realised I had forgotten my goggles and I had to borrow one of the commissaire's sunglasses. I still knew I could do a good time even under these conditions, and I knew that Matt Walker had done a very good time before my run, but I made two big mistakes and lost way too much time. I tried to go too fast and paid the price!”

It was a great year for the Fox 2017 Gravity team. The 2017 DH season is now over and 2018 will start on the 21st - 22nd of April in Lošinj, Croatia for another intense year!

*All of the Fox DH team riders wear the proven Rampage Pro Carbon helmet and Flexair gear.
