Phil Atwill has had a rough couple of years with some pretty nasty injuries that have made repeating that Lenzerheide 2017 podium a big challenge. However, at the final round in Lousa last year he stuck it into 5th place. We sat down to find out about that journey back to the podium. We chat about his move to Greece, filming for Gamble, injury, the move back to Propain and plenty more. So hit play above and listen to this episode with Phil Atwill. You can find Phil on Instagram @phil_atwill and his YouTube channel is here. Here are some of the videos we mentioned. Life in Greece - The Bowls, Route 43, Flow State. You can check out the two young riders who Phil has bought onboard over on Instagram @soctaris.zocos and @girogos.pan. You can also find Gamble over on RedBullTV here.

Canyon has just updated their eBike range, and they now all feature the amazing Shimano EP8 motor, providing 85Nm of torque. They've also launched a brand new model, the Torque:ON with 180mm travel, 63.5 head angle and a playful ride for all your gravity needs, without a chairlift or a shuttle. If that's a bit much then there's the 150mm Spectral:ON that will enable you to cover much more ground on your trail rides, and the 130mm Neuron:ON and hardtail Grand Canyon:ON too. What's even better is that they are currently in stock in most countries. If they aren't in stock with you, then they will be soon and you can sign up for a notification on the Canyon site.
