The article ‘Live Free or Die, Clint Reynolds: American Independent’ was featured in the The Albion Issue 9. It is now available online, along with this video that was put together by the guys at Albion.
I don’t think we have to explain ourselves why this is posted on CYDI.
Little video I did 4 years ago for ESPN, not going to lie the song sucks pretty bad. But you know how it goes when you are restricted to only using licensed music. The riders in this video are classic, Chris Doyle, Kris Bennett, Brian Yeagle, Brian Foster, and more.
If you saw our video from last weekend's Take It Back Jam then you definitely know that checking out this gallery is a must. Brian Yeagle was kind enough to shoot the photos for it and also did a little write up on the jam. Check out both of them as well as our brand new gallery layout after the jump. (more...)
We were on had to document The Take It Back Event in the Western Pennsylvania area. The event was a in a Jam format where the riders rode the trails for 3 hours and the riders were judged by their peers in the jam. 1st Place went to Mark Potoczny. 2nd Place Adam Aloise. 3rd Place Tyler Valentik, he also took home some cash for (Best Whip). After the event Guests Of Guests played a nice little set for the crowd. The night before the Jam, big thunderstorms rolled through. The overnight showers made the jumps that much better in the hot blazing sun. I’m sure everyone had red backs by 2PM. A big thank you goes out to Bo Schatschneider for hosting the festivities.

Don’t go thinking I forgot about throwback thursday again! I’m not throwing it back as far as I usually do but this one is still a doozy. I’ve admired Brian Yeagle since the first time I ever saw him ride in person. It was at the La Revolution contest at East Coast Terminal, and after watching him take a few runs I immediately walked over to Robo and asked why he wasn’t on Fit’s pro team. Brian is a legend and one of those guys who makes you want to stop whatever you’re doing to watch ride. I had kind of forgotten about this bio that Tom Arkus produced for ESPN back in 2010. It popped up on Facebook the other day and I immediately knew what my throwback thursday post was going to be!
Due to some major ball ups with my financial institution I wasn't able to make it out to the Vinyl premiere. I was already pretty salty about it, but after seeing the photos of the premiere my salinity level is comparable to that of the Dead Sea. Oh well, at least I was able to get a lot done at the trails. Head over to Vinyl and check out a ton of photos from the premiere and the hangover session the day after.
There's no doubt that you've been admiring that Vinyl ad we have over in the sidebar. Well now you can download a wallpaper of that very same photo of Mark Potoczny shot by Brian Yeagle. Vinyl has a couple of different size options for you to choose from, so head over there and grab one now.
It kind of funny a video with a bunch of “Who Brought the Dicks” era Brian Yeagle footage gets uploaded on the same day that his part in that very video suffered an epic song jack. Coincidences I guess! Anyway, this was real treat since I had only seen East Infection once and it was many years ago. Yeagle and Derrick Girard both have full sections, and the video is loaded with footage from the Suffield Trails.
It's rough being a trails rider on the East Coast when winter rolls in. A lot of digging gets done when the ground isn't frozen solid, but riding definitely takes a hit. The Wheel Mill is the latest park to undertake the challenge of giving trails riders a place to ride during the winter, and they brought in a handful of Pittsburgh's best riders to get it done. I've been getting more and more excited as I've watched the building progress. The park isn't open quite yet but the builders have been able to sample the fruits of their labor. Tom Arkus put together a time lapse video of the building of what has been dubbed "The Woods Jump Room" and Brian Yeagle shot some great pictures of it being "tested".
