Troy Zeigler of Elevated Visuals came through with this rocking edit from the Heathens Mountain Jam. I can’t get over the insanity of what when down there. The mix of trails style and X-Games maneuvers is not what you usually see at most jams these days. That’s what you get when you have a set of amazing trails within a stones throw of Woodward! Spotted on The Union
I said I hoped for more footage from the Heathens Jam in the last post, and oh boy did I receive. ESPN dropped this doozy of an edit from none other than Stew Johnson himself. Stew, you did an excellent job making me really regret not being at this one!
So pretty much each new episode of Raditudes becomes my new favorite. This one certainly has and with good reason. The first half of it is all trails and Hucker getting loose with his drone. By loose I mean flying it directly into Navaz’s face! The second half catches up with Anthony at the Goodwood Festival in the UK. It’s contest footage but it’s super low key and Doyle and Kye Forte are all up in there.
Holy crap, Kill the Line is only a month away! I swear time speeds up as you get older! (more…)
Demolition’s Northwest Trails Trip didn’t go quite as well as this trip to the Northeast that they went on the year prior. I wonder where they’ll head this year?
Chris’ little Rare Air story yesterday reminded me of this documentary that Duo and Defgrip put together a few years back. Funny story about 401. By the time I ever made it down there myself and my friends had already been spoiled by the goodness that was in Bethlehem. I remember one day we randomly decided to head down to NC and check out 401. We showed up, took like five runs and were over it. Despite the four hour drive we decided to pack it up and head back home to our spot. That of course changed when we ran into Doyle on our way down the trail out of the place. I’m glad we did come across him, because it completely changed everyone’s mood and we went back and had a damn fun day.
I don’t ever really think of Chris Doyle as a daredevil. Sure he does some wild stuff but he always comes across as calculated and confident while doing it. I guess being a kid and seeing another kid’s eye get popped out by a stick will make you think about what you’re doing a little bit more.
