Totally missed this one when it came out back in June, but here it is now! Outside Magazine had Cam McCaul catch up with Chase Hawk for a session at Austin’s legendary 9th Street Trails. It made me laugh a bit that Cam was caught off guard by just how many BMX pros live in Austin.
Just the other day someone was asking me if I had ever seen NotBad, and now I know why. Pretty much any and all Gorge Road footage is spectacular, but this is on another level as far as the production value goes. The riding is NotBad either! Ba dum tsh…
Definitely the first time I’ve ever posted a video from Trek. I saw this video floating around yesterday with Queensland, New Zealand in the title and figured that it had to have some Gorge Road in it. It took skipping to the 02:30 mark to find it, but it is indeed in here. That brings up another first for me; seeing people ride Gorge on big bikes. It’s funny how that extra little bit of contact patch that the bigger tires have makes such a significant difference in how things sound.
This week we said goodbye to the legendary Aptos Post Office Jumps. Though one chapter has closed, you can help the locals begin a new one by taking a second to sign the PETITION they have set up to get a new spot going. This edit from GetaBMX was a perfect send off to a spot that will be missed by riders all over the world.
On Tuesday the hammer fell on the Aptos Post Office Jumps. Riders from all over the world have been making pilgrimages there over the last few weeks to pay their respects and get in a final session at the legendary spot. Milan Recknagel from GetaBMX was one of those riders, and he put together the most perfect farewell edit possible. I mean seriously, could you have picked a better song than Free Bird? He also shot some photos that you can check out HERE. I just hope he put his cameras down long enough to actually ride!
