What Does it Take to Ride for the Santa Cruz Syndicate?

Well, this may as well be the greatest mountain biking video ever made. The Santa Cruz Syndicate just signed two fresh young riders, Luca Shaw and Loris Vergier, to their World Cup DH squad and sent them to a secret training camp for initiation. The team is already full of DH legends like Steve Peat and Greg Minnaar, as well as more…um…well-rounded riders like Josh Bryceland (aka Ratboy) and Danny MacAskill.

The young guns Shaw and Vergier were in for quite the shock during their first session of boot camp in Santa Cruz.

Check out that Candide-style lift station line at the end.

Watch them rip down the old race line in Schladming, Austria, pushing each other to the limit while making it look oh so easy.
