Who would have ever thought back when Anthem II came out that Clint would be in the X Games? He’s an alternate this year so there’s a chance we may get to see him bringing a little of that signature trails style to the big show.
A very Blair Witch-esque video from Jon Lynn, AKA City Boy revealing the possible explanation/origin of the woods known as Catty.
Give Giovanni Panzani’s latest Down For Life edit another watch and then start planning some summer travels of your own!
The good folks over at Empire BMX are doing their part to support the trail scene by offering the items above for sale in-store and online. First is the new 9th Street Trails X Big Rob shirt. It’s a steal at $14.95 considering it’s printed on an American Apparel blank! Empire is donating all of the profits from it to the crew at 9th Street for tools and supplies. Tecate can be considered a supply, right? Next up is that limited edition 18″ x 12″ Groundchuck poster that had everyone talking last week. You can pre-order it now through Empire…
Holy hell there are a lot of spots in this new Down For Life edit! Catty, Posh, HVT, and the Grotrails just to name a few! Though I’m extremely jealous of Giovanni Panzani’s travels, this is exactly what I needed to get me through this somehow snowy first day of spring.
In my humble opinion that photo above is one of the most iconic trails photos of all time. It’s been nearly 20 years since Ed Docherty captured Groundchuck laying over this perfect one-handed table at Posh. The photo went on to become the two page Standard Bykes “Come to Standard Country.” ad that hung on damn near every trail rider’s wall back in the day. I still have the one that once hung on mine, and even as tattered as it is, I’ve still considered getting it framed and hung up again. Well now it looks like I’ll be going…
GetaBMX’s Milan Recknagel sure did do his fair share of getting around last year, as this 2015 highlights edit more than proves! Definitely not a bad way to get the week started, and it’s also a pretty good source of inspiration for laying out some solid traveling plans for 2016.
I had no idea how much you guys liked this top 10 trails web edits thing until emails started pouring in over the last couple weeks asking if I was going to be doing it this year! Truth be told, I’ve been nibbling away at it since the beginning of the month but all the traveling that I’ve also been doing slowed things down a bit. It’s always a pretty tough job putting this list together, but this year was the toughest yet. After going back through 2015’s videos I ended up with a “short list” of a few dozen…
Last summer a heavy crew from the Northwest descended upon Posh and Catty and joined in with some other out-of-towners already there enjoying the well-grooved PA clay. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse very shortly after this, but at least they were able to get a couple solid days in before it did.
Happy fucking hump day! Here’s seven minutes of Northeast trails shreddage to help get you through!
