The Albion has a gallery of photos that didn’t quite make the cut for Doyle’s interview. My favorite is the one above of Mason giving him some tips on proper brooming technique.
This new edit of Mulville and some friends just popped up on his youtube page. Highlights include Mulville shredding of course, as well as an alternate angle of that epic train through Monroeville that Protoz filmed with his helmet cam awhile back. There’s even a few Doyle clips mixed in there.
Deluxe just put up some photos showing off their man Frog’s new custom painted whip. They should really consider adding that color to their line up.
Spotted this over on prettyshady. It’s a little long and has a 1970’s BBC documentary vibe to it, but I think they did a pretty good job of capturing the essence of the woods.
It seems like the weather has been kicking everyones ass this year. If it’s not a lack of rain then it’s too much with no happy medium in sight. I think I’ll stop complaining after seeing this picture that Mutiny posted of Robbo’s trails as my weather problems seem pale in comparison.
I spotted this on Groove Merchants awhile ago and it really took me back. I can’t think of a more fitting first post then one about the place that really started it all for me. I can still vividly remember the feeling I got the first time I walked up the hill from the parking lot and laid eyes on this place. Sure I’d been riding for quite awhile before then and had even built what I thought were trails behind my grandparents house. This was something so different though it may as well have been another planet. A giant field situated next to an equally giant water tower with countless jumps laid out one right after the next. Apparently I had been grossly misinformed as to what trails were because the disorderly assortment of jumps I had been calling trails looked nothing like what I was seeing. Still in a state of shock as to what laid before me I looked to my right and saw what seemed like as many kids sitting on top of the starting hill as there were jumps at the place. I probably stood there for a good 10 minutes just taking everything in. The amount of jumps, the number of locals, and the effortless style they possessed was almost too much for to my 15 year old brain to process. The place even had its own local pro! That’s Robbie Miranda spinning that dub in the picture above. He may have still been racing in the expert class at the time the pic was taken, but to myself and anyone else that got to witness him ride that place he may as well have been Mat Hoffman. Over the next few years this place that would come to be known as Capital Trails would become my home away from home and establish the love for trails I still have to this day.
