​Watch: The 50to01 Boys Build the Ultimate Dirt Playground

When it comes to creativity and passion for the sport, 50to01 knows no bounds. But that’s already been made amply clear in any number of their existing creations. What sets their latest video apart however is the impeccable trail building work (can you even call this a trail?) that went into shaping their latest playground. Thanks to Revolution Bike Park, the crew molded this beautiful skatepark-style bowl out of the dirt – and naturally proceed to session the living daylights out of it. The usual suspects – Ratboy and Loosedog Lewis – are there, but the whole crew throws down.

Of course, they had something to say about their new playground. Check it out:

We slapped and shaped it until it was ripe. Friends once from different areas and different backgrounds - on a path now brotherly, enjoying sinking their teeth into this fruit of their labour together… lost in the rhythm of repetition, the fruit will drive you crazy - heavily invested in this space physically and mentally, the feeling of disconnection in this fruit bowl is a special thing: you, your bike, your friends… swimming in fruit.

The bowl contains flavours that won’t let you go, succulent and the sweetest - if it was any sweeter, we’d have no teeth. A heartfelt thank you to the whole Revolution bike park crew for being with us since day 1 - let’s continue growing fruit together, its so fun to share. James, Baz, Danny and Dave - what you’ve created has had a sublime effect on us all. Anyone who lays eyes on the line is left speechless, the way it ribbons it’s way through the quarry is a thing of beauty and an honour to have being involved. It’s people like this that our sport has to thank for it’s growth and expansion behind the scenes in the right places. Thanks to Alex for his passion throughout the shoot, shooting with the guru will always be a pleasure. Thanks to Sven for making it out to Wales to shoot with us, was awesome to see you away from the tape. Thanks finally to RockShox for entrusting our crew with this shoot, it means a lot. We hope you enjoy the video, remember to eat your fruit.

While Richie Rude has been involved in his fair share of scandal lately, one thing is still certain – the kid knows how to ride a bike. It comes in many forms: winning EWS races, shredding his home bike trails, or blowing up freeride spots in his latest video for Yeti Cycles aboard their new SB165 bike.

Rotoruans are obsessed with their dirt, so much so that they’ll proudly tell you it’s the best in the world. Nicknamed “New Zealand’s Dirt Gold”, the brown pow out here is comprised of leftovers from the geological activity that formed the land. The ash, clay, and pumice combination makes for trails that can be ridden year-round—no matter how rainy it gets.
