Vital’s Boozer Jam Edit

Let Vital get you into the festive Irish spirit with their take on the Boozer Jam. While I may not have a clue as to the musical choice, I do know that this edit has one of the best over shoots I have seen in my four years of doing CYDI.

Flashback: Sekt – Mix Edit

I’ve always been a huge fan of Doug Foulke’s edits. There’s just something about them that truly captures the pure essence of riding trails. I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted to post for a flashback edit this week, that was until I randomly stumbled back across this Sekt Mix from half a decade ago!

Attention Richmond, VA Friends!

Listen up if you are or are going to be anywhere near Richmond, VA this afternoon! There’s a “visioning session” with the city from 5-6pm at Gillies Trails that is an opportunity for the public to discuss the future of the trails and what they would like to see out of them. With the trails recently becoming recognized and legal with the city of Richmond, the local chapter of MORE (The Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts) has become involved with them. There have been some rumblings that MORE’s vision for Gillies is different than the vision of the crew currently building and…

New Fit Brian Foster Frames

Brian Foster’s signature frame has been noticeably absent from Fit’s lineup for the past couple of years. I was actually beginning to wonder which frame BF would pick if he decided to build up a new bike. Well it looks like maybe it is time for him to build up a new ride because Moeller just announced via his Instagram that Fit is about to start on a small batch of BF frames. I’m not sure exactly just how many a “small batch” is, but you may want to hit up your favorite Fit dealer now if you want to…

Flashback: 1991 UGP Flying Circus Dirt Jumping Contest

Go ahead and stop what you’re doing and tell who ever is around you that you can’t be disturbed for the next 40 minutes. Apparently this incredible footage from the 1991 UGP Flying Circus Dirt Contest has been floating around Indiana on a VHS tape for the last 24 years. Someone please buy Rich Hoppe a beer for getting this online so that the rest of the world can see it! This is pure gold, and if you look closely you’ll spot Brian Foster, Taj, Chris Moeller, Jimmy Levan, and a few more guys who went on to become legends….

Brian Foster – Holy Fit

A few days ago Fit started putting the sections from their Holy Fit DVD online. I was excited because that meant that I would finally get to see Brian Foster’s part. I know I should have probably picked up a copy of the DVD back when it came out but I slacked on it. Since I never actually saw Holy Fit I had no idea where BF’s section was in the video to know how long I was going to have to wait for it to be online. I’m delighted that I didn’t have to wait long! As expected there’s…
