It’s always a good day when some fresh footy from Eastside surfaces! This raw edit comes from the clips John Donald filmed with his phone while he and the NW crew were down there this past February.
Congrats to both Clint and Empire on this one! I’m honestly pretty surprised it didn’t happen sooner! I’ll let the street clip for the Instagram announcement slide in hopes that they’ll correct course and give us a proper trails filled welcome edit soon.
This edit that Brian Barnhart put together of Clint and Matty ripping Speedball randomly popped into my head when I was digging today. I’m not sure what exactly it was that sparked the memory, but I’m glad it did so that I’d be forced to rewatch it when I got home. Coincidentally it’s Friday and I hadn’t yet picked out a video for a flashback post. Funny how that worked out!
Though I haven’t had time to give it another watch since I posted it last Friday, this Relic edit has been on my mind all week. I love what Relic has done so far and this edit just reconfirmed that there are a lot more good things to come from Ash’s take on what a BMX brand should be.
Relic just got the weekend fired up right and proper with this shit! Stoked on that little tribute to the OG Crawfish Master, Satoski Enda that Clint fires off at 02:18!
While it may not be trails that are getting built, I think every single last one of us can appreciate what Clint and a handful of people were able to pull off here!
Our friend Brian Barnhart has a rad collection of photos that he shot while back home on the East Coast that you can check out over on DIG. Don’t really need any more of a description than that! Get on over to the DIG site and peep them!
A fitting flashback seeing as I’m about to hit the road for a quick day trip to Posh!
Call me jaded, but having lived through the mid to late 2000s era of every schmo who had ever swung a leg over a twenty inch starting a BMX company, I generally don’t get too excited when I hear about a new brand being launched. There have been a few exceptions though, and hearing that UK legend Ashley Charles was starting his own brand was one of them. It’s been a little over a year and a half since Ash launched Relic BMX, and in that time their line has slowly and thoughtfully grown to include two stems, a sprocket,…
Looks like we’re going to need to remind Ride that us lowly trails riders still exist. Seeing as the last print issue was completely devoid of any trails or dirt content, I’m not really surprised that they didn’t feel the need to put one of our kind on the list of suggested riders for the readers choice award. Tisk, tisk, tisk… Clint has got my vote, you can write in yours HERE.
