The Top 10 Trails Web Edits Of 2016

My apologies for the delay! Maybe one day I’ll finally realize that I need to start the whole process of picking these out well before the end of the year rolls around. I thought I’d be able to hammer it out right at the beginning of January, but between traveling and being busy with a bunch of other stuff, I never had the time to fully devote to sitting down and giving this the attention it deserves. So, here we are, damn near the end of February and we’re just now taking a look back on what I thought were…

Is There A New Back Bone Video In The Works?!

It’s a definite possibility according to the email that I got from them! They also have a little deal going for those of you who don’t already own a copy of their first video. Order something from Back Bone’s online store and they’ll throw a copy in with your order for free! Even if you already have one, take the free one and pass it off to someone who doesn’t. I guarantee they’ll be stoked!

New Back Bone Website

Back Bone has gone and dialed themselves in a slick new website for 2017 (hopefully we won’t be too far behind them). The whole site looks really good but my favorite feature is that they’ve put together curated groups of products that they like by category, e.g., trails, race, street, etc. Take a minute or two and have a look around HERE!

D.A.N.E Jam 2016

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since Dane Searls passed. It somehow doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that we were all first blown away with his Giants of Dirt project. In reality it’s been half a decade, and even though that much time has passed by nobody still has yet to accomplish what he did back then. Every year the crew at Back Bone throw a jam to honor Dane’s memory, and every year more and more people show up to pay their respects to a man who inspired so many. The wind…

Focalpoint – In Production: The Back Bone DVD

It’s been over a year since the Back Bone video dropped but I think it’s still in constant rotation in every trail rider’s DVD player. It sure as hell is in mine! Focalpoint recently caught up with the main man behind the video, Brendan Boeck to find out what all went into bringing it to life. Accompanying the interview are some incredible photos from both him and Nicholas Gascoine that were shot during the filming of the video. Do yourself a favor and give it a read and a look HERE!

Ask Back Bone – Can I Ride Your Trails?

Ask Back Bone Wednesday is back and the submitted question they picked to answer this week is, “Can I ride your trails?”. The trails in question are the Hillfire Trails that we’ve become quite familiar with from many a Back Bone edit and from their video. Those trails are pretty gnarly and I’m surprised that any kid wanting to ride them wouldn’t already be well aware of the rules and contributions required to do so. I do have a tendency to give kids too much credit though. Anyway, what Rhysty breaks down in this for anyone wanting to ride Hillfire…
