So apparently all post today will be coming from France. Here’s a POV look at La Source’s Frelon Line that’s been fixed up in preparation for their jam this weekend. They may still need to do a bit of tree trimming. Spotted on Compression
Unfortunately Joey wasn’t able to ride in Kill the Line due to the airline delaying her bike (been there), but luckily it showed up in time for her to get some laps in before she headed home.
Deluxe went and gave us a little Labor Day gift by putting all the Woodlanders edits together into one eleven and a half minute super edit. The wild ass flip that Mike Saavedra does in here still gets brought up by at least once a week by someone during conversations.

In case you somehow missed this yesterday!
Now this is a proper birthday party, though it is kind of weird that only one person is riding. I guess everyone else was saving themselves for the after dark festivities.
"31st of August 2014 – Peynier, France. Dawid Godziek from Poland is the winner of VANS Kill the Line 2014. He convinced the judges with an amazing variety of hard tricks like a double barspin backflip, a triple truckdriver or a corked 720 combined with a super smooth style and perfect landings. The Brazilian Leandro Moreira placed second with a triple whip, superman nothing variations and his unique powerful style. Gentlemen rider and BMX legend Chris Doyle became third with his unbeatable 360 variations. The format was three runs with the best one counting. The "Riders Choice Award" went to wizard of AUS Corey Bohan. Winner of the "Best Train Competition" was again „Team Ridazz“ with T.J. Ellis (US), Leandro Moreira (BRA), Mike Saavedra (US), Daniel Juchatz (GER), Paul Langlands (NZ), Alex Landeros (US) and Jon Riddle (NZ). The German Daniel Juchatz was the lucky winner of the wildcard and made it to the finals.
More than 8.000 spectators witnessed 16 finalists out of 60 riders competing on the „Les Kills“ line in the pine woods with nine jumps. Some of the worlds best dirt riders came to the legendary Peynier Trails in the South of France and went for an overall prize money of 7.000 Euros. Definitely a highlight of the weekend was Ryan Nyquist (US) trying to pull a tree -sixty nose bump to bars (literally) and eventually pulling it.
The most relaxed trail contest of the season with perfect weather conditions, is organised by the BMX Peynier association – namely the BMX legendsAlex Dropsy, Berenger Guilb Cordier, Bibi, Nicolas Beou Bertier and Cedric Pouky Carrez – and an entire village of volunteers. It was judged by head judge Dave "Hank“ Cleworth (UK), Axel Jurgens (ARG) and Patrick Haebig (AUT).
