Josh ‘Ratboy’ Bryceland’s Santa Cruz V10 CC

2016 World Cup ride of the Syndicate team

Josh Bryceland is a rider perhaps best known by his nickname – Ratboy. A former junior world champion and 2014 overall World Cup champion, Bryceland nearly won the 2014 World Championships but was scuppered by going too big off a final jump, where he had to settle for a silver medal and shattered foot instead.

With wild child antics on and off the bike, long flowing hair and speed as raw as it comes, Bryceland always draws a roar from the crowd. As a third of the Santa Cruz Syndicate team, alongside Steve Peat and Greg Minnaar, Bryceland’s race rig is what many would call a dream bike.
