I used to really enjoy watching Josh Stead ride at contest. Even though he did all the big flippy and whippy circus tricks, he had the style to balance them out. Not sure what he’s up to these days, but hopefully he’s still riding and maybe we’ll see some new footage of him soon.
Yep, after seeing this I’m definitely putting Oakwoods on the list of spots I want to visit this year!
After a little battle with Youtube and their oppressive rules regarding music rights, Sam Bates was able to finally get this edit from Pumpy and the Spithurst Trails up for the world to see. I’m usually not a fan of the Foo Fighters but it totally works in this, and works really well if I do say so. Anyway, enough about my musical preferences, hit play and have look back on some of the good times and laps put down at two rad UK spots.
I can’t even put into words how unbelievably psyched I am to see the final result of this documentary that DIG and Stew Johnson are putting together on Garrett Byrnes. There’s no doubt about how much of an influence he was on my generation. I just really hope that at least a few BMX kids of today’s current generation see this and have some of that influence rub off on them!
One of the most highly anticipated events of the winter is just under a week and a half away. Next Saturday (January 25th) The Wheel Mill will once again be playing host to The Winter Welcome Jam. With some new sponsors on the table this year (can you say Yuengling!) and some rad new additions The Wheel Mill’s already incredible jump room, this year’s jam is shaping up to be the best one yet! Don’t miss it!
So let me get this straight, you want your fellow riders and trails enthusiast to pay for you and your buddy to take a trails trip around Europe? I’ve had some questionable crowdfunding campaigns come across my desk before, but none have left me fuming as much as this one did. I mean a funding goal of $21,000, come the fuck on! Apparently some of the money raised will be donated to the trails they visit, which is alright I guess, but still this whole thing of essentially begging for other riders to pay for your adventure is pretty ridiculous….
Alright, bear with me here because you’ve got to do a fair bit of skipping around to zero in on the trails footage in this edit from CMPNY’s Alex Tate and Dylan Kakowski’s SoCal Trip. 00:23, 00:48, 02:49, 03:54 and 04:45 are the coordinates that you’re going to need to lock in on it.
Alright 20 Zoll, you’ve successfully teased me and left me yearning to see your new “Berlin Dirt” series. Now hopefully I/we won’t have to wait too long for the first episode to drop!
Join Matias Gormas, Tatan Quiroz and Pablo Ibaceta for an early bird session at Chile’s scenic Golondra Dirt Park. This place looks like it’s scorching by noon, so morning sessions are probably a necessity!
Custom frame building extraordinaire Ted James of TJD Bikes fame has gone and had some pretty rad long sleeves done up. Most of them have been claimed already but there are still a handful of mediums and larges floating around for those of you who have to have one right now. If you can wait a bit or need a different size, there’s another batch in the works that will be ready in a couple weeks. There will also be some kids sizes available with that batch. Shoot Ted an email to email@example.com for more info and to work out…
