Catty has head a steady flow of people passing through lately, and on this particular day Doug Foulke caught the Credence guys, a crew from Belgium, and Chris Harti all down there enjoying the roast. I love when stuff like this comes out just before the weekend. It just helps set the tone for the good times ahead.
In case you somehow missed this yesterday!
HEAVY sessions going down in the PA Woods this weekend! Doug Foulke is on it and already whipped together an edit from yesterday’s.
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!
Another Mongoose Jam has come and gone. Ride was on site to capture all of the action, though the only thing we care about around here is the dirt part. I usually don’t get much of a raise for flip tricks but Drew Bezanson’s flip double peg grab was kind of exciting.
I really wasn’t expecting too much with this but it’s actually pretty decent. Having Clint and Dan Foley in it didn’t hurt things. Plus the jumps look pretty decent this year. Kind of bummed I didn’t cruise up.
Well hot damn this is awesome! Clint, Matty and a bunch of pals up in the Pacific Northwest shredding the living shit out of everything they came across. Clint actually edited this bad boy himself. My only complaint is that James P. Nutter is nowhere to be found.
One great thing about Dig going independent is that their exclusive video content has been freed from that abysmal Mpora player. This edit came out a few years ago and went along with the Catty article found in issue 85. Not only was Janis on the cover of that issue but he also filmed and edited this. Take a trip back to a Halloween at Catty in the not so distant past.
So X Games Dirt has made its triumphant return to US Soil. Dave King was in charge of building the course and I think he came up with a pretty good one. If you didn’t land decent on the second to last set you were pretty much ass out for the last one. There was a fair amount of panic pedaling going on and even more power cases. Nyquist cased so hard that he got ejected over his bars and all the way to the bottom of the landing. Even more impressive was Pat Casey’s 10/90 case. It wasn’t a 10/90 with his bike though, it was with his face! I might be being a bit overgenerous saying that 10% of his face made it over the landing because it really was pretty much only a hand and an eyelash. Somehow dude survived. Aside front the last set carnage the other highlight for me was Clint not only being in the X Games but making finals. I just wish they showed more than one of his runs. Oh well, that’s tv. (more…)
