This retrospective look back at Circuit BMX’s trails filled 2015 certainly won the week for me! It also renewed my desire to build a dirt quarter.
Mark Taylor tipped me off to this video that his buddy Mike Calvey made from last year’s shenanigans at Pumpy, the Bitch Trails and a couple of other spots. It put a smile on my face and I think that’s something we could all use today.
Though things over at Trailife have been pretty quite for the past year, I’ve still continued to check the site everyday hoping for some sign of life. After literally hundreds of disappointments, today was the day! Richie posted this short edit featuring footage from a heated session back in 2014 and a winter walk through the trails that he recently took after not being out there for a year. Fingers crossed that this is a sign of new things to come!
Rest in peace Dave
For some reason the Omni Trails popped into my head just the other day. I realized that I hadn’t seen anything from them in quite a long time, and that lead me to wonder whether they were still going. Last night the answer to that showed up in my Instagram feed and it unfortunately it wasn’t the answer I was hoping for. I can’t believe that we are just a little over a month into 2016 and we’ve already lost two sets of trails. Let’s hope this isn’t a trend that continues. Here are some words about Omni from local…
I was stoked to open up my email and find this Beltway Trails edit from Greg Marshall! Though Beltway is only about an hour north of me, I unfortunately don’t get to make it up there all too often. This year things really started to come together for them. They had a solid crew and that translated into a whole lot of dirt being moved. I can only imagine how much the place is going to evolve over the winter! We’ll have to wait until spring to see that, but for now check out how things shaped up last season.
Pics of Ryan Nyquist riding a big bike have been popping up on his Instagram lately and now I know why. He’s planning on competing in both BMX and MTB contest this year. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty interested to see what he brings to the MTB contest world. Mainly how many barspins he can fit in on the bigger jumps! I’m going to go ahead and set a goal of eight for him!
Damn! Over 40 girls showed up to the first ever Fox Women’s BMX Jam that they put on at Austin’s Walnut Creek Pumptrack! It’s super rad to see so many girls shredding, and of course it’s always great to see my old friend Nina Buitrago out there helping them get stoked!
Profile has a bike check up on Anthony Napolitan’s current build that features Colony’s trails friendly “Tradition” frame, a slew of Profile parts, and even some rainbow titanium spokes. What’s not on there is brakes, but according to Anthony they are “coming soon.” Click HERE to have a look at what he’s been roasting The Wetlands on!
Here’s a super short edit that Jiří Zouhar put together of his friend Michal Hajcek riding the Skalka Trails’ winter refuge. Now was it Jiří or Michal making those moaning sounds in here? Remember when Robo’s riding came complete with its own self made sound effects? His noises were a lot less sexual though!
