Jeremy Muller’s section from the Vinyl “LP” DVD. Majority of Jem’s section is filmed in South of France, along with a few runs on the East Coast of PA. Jem’s put in a lot of work in a very short amount of time to get his section together, I wish we had endless summers to film. But i think Jem’s picked the appropriate song for his DVD part to make it that much better.
This section of the DVD has a unique mix of riders ripping trails and concrete. Featuring: Denis Mowgly, Mark Mulville, Brandan “Punjab” Pundai, Chris Doyle, Ryan Melia, Isaac Hoefling, Gary Young, Alex Magallan, Kevin Porter, and Chase Zink.
The Vinyl “LP” DVD is going to be parted out week by week, first up we have the Intro and Vince Primel’s part. A few trips to Europe, and one to America we were able to gather enough footage in one year for Vince to have a section.
The “LP” DVD will have a designated page, you can keep checking that link to view all the video parts from the dvd.
I’ve seen, been to, and even entered a pretty good number of dirt contest in my day, but I have to say that this year’s contest at Texas Toast was by far the best! You could feel the energy in the air, and almost every rider had a huge smile on their face during their runs. With all the rain that they got beforehand it was an absolute miracle that the contest even happened. Hats off to Clint, Matty, Will, and the rest of the dudes who built the course and managed to salvage it from the deluge of rain. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Toast and I’d highly recommend that you plan on being there. Our buddy Geo Jenkins put together this edit of the highlights from the dirt finals. If it doesn’t motivate you to get down there next year then you should probably go ahead and get yourself a bar of wax and go join the rest of the ledge monkeys.
Will Herman, Ryan Popple, and Doug Richie taking some laps at the trails over the weekend. We decided that it might be a good idea to film episode two of the Quick Hits Series. Watch them train a line known as Big Foot.
The world known Potoczny Welcome Jam had a massive turn out this year. Every year the jam’s get bigger and bigger, my imagination can only wonder what next year will be like. Meaning we have to one up the video we just made. Results: Best Trick | Jeremy Ball, High Air | Tyler Valentik, High Air Quarter | Lil Jon, Best Pancake | Teddy Van Orman. The video features two local bands from Pittsburgh, Guests of Guests and Locks and Dams. There will be an outtakes video coming out soon, it will cover the quarter pipe high air and bloopers from the eventful day.
Heathens Jam 2013 was a blast, already can’t wait till the next one. We had a pretty strong Pittsburgh based crew that rolled in to claim the jumps. Will Herman was announced the Patch Pimp for shredding so hard. The Queen of England better approve of this. Tyler Valentik AKA “Baby T” won the boost portion of the jam. Featuring: Ryan Popple, Mike Cottle, Rob Darden, Mike Potoczny, Noshirt, Mike Hucker, Glen Johnson, and more. Enough reading click the play button!
Joe Nazarak follows Mike Hucker at this past weekends Heathens Jam. Full coverage video will be coming soon. For now watch Hucker flip some nice size jumps.
Last minute ball ups kept me from making it to the TRA Grindlab Jam. Luckily Mike Farnham made it up and came back with footage. The jumps looked pretty dialed and it looks like it was good time for everyone there. Grindlab local Evan Smedley took the win in expert dirt, followed by Dan Depre and Andrew Fable. There was also a park contest, but you’ll have to look somewhere else for footage of that.
Here is a short video of some runs at Willow St Trails. This was filmed about a year ago on a trip I did with Vince Primel, while filming for the Vinyl “LP” DVD. You can see more of these trails in the DVD. Shout out to Jonathon Hoagland for keeping it real.
