You’ll have to know Portuguese to understand the interview portion of this, but as far as Murilo’s riding goes, that transcends all languages. Sure there are some flips and spins, but there’s also some glimpses of steez. I also can’t not mention the pretty amazing backdrop around the Pá Soca Trails.
I always hate posting stuff like this, but unfortunately after being in existence for over twenty years and being one of Brazil’s oldest sets of trails, the D’Rossi Trails have been leveled to make way for an industrial complex. Let’s take a second to pour one out for all the trail homies down there who have called the place home over the last two decades. You can check out a couple of older D’Rossi edits after the jump.
We get minute or so of Colony’s Anthony Napolitan, Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar riding Sanctuary’s interesting trails setup before they move on to the park stuff of their trip. It’s right after the intro and digging b-roll, so just click play to get into it.
That last video I posted of Danimal testing out his new lines reminded me of this old gem from the Gully Trails. I damn sure hope everybody’s new line testing goes a lot better than it did this day for Binny and Andrew!
A couple of clips of Danimal, aka Danny Eisele doing some line testing a while back at his old spot. That on and off is quick! The thing is barely two bike lengths long!
Jon Lynn sent through this quick slowmo video that he put together of Pauly Cvikevich styling through Keyko. I can honestly say that I actually don’t mind this slowmo vid; I’d even go as far as to say I like it!
Keith Terra has a piece up on DIG discussing whether or not a broken planet (pertaining to the seasons) makes for better trails. Without jacking their piece and going off on my own tangent about it, I’ll register my two cents with a simple “No.” Head on over to DIG for Terra’s take on the subject, as well as some damn fine pictures from a mid-December session at Keyko.
I’m calling on all of you all out there to take a minute to help out some of your fellow riders by signing THIS PETITION to try and save their spot. You can read more about it after the jump, or you can just hit the link and get the details there. Either way, please do them and the trails community a solid by throwing down a signature!
Holy hell, this Joe Symonds character is a fucking animal! Stronghold describes him as “The greatest trail rider you’ve never heard of”, and as strong of a statement as that is, I don’t think I can disagree!
Celebrate twenty years of the Burck Trails with this edit, and then click on through for the flyer for this year’s celebratory jam!
