Janis has made quite a return to video making with these last few PA Woods edits. This third and final one of the year is my personal favorite because it really conveys the sense of not just how much fun riding trails is, but also how much fun it is just being in the woods with friends. Poor Schwartz at the end though!
We all knew that Clint Reynolds was number one, but he’s finally getting that recognition from people outside of the trails scene; first with a NORA award, and now with an official decree from xgames.com. The later comes with the above video compilation of footage, photos, and some very good words about Mr. Reynolds. If you’re on the main page you’ll have to click into the post to get to the video. Sorry, the X Games player is a little wonky!
Clint posted up this picture of some new prototype Credence bars he’s trying out. They retain the same 3° upsweep and 11° backsweep as the current Credence bars, but have been scaled up to 9.25″ tall and 30″ wide. There are definitely a lot of aging backs out there that will appreciate that! No word on when or if these will make it into production but if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on it.
With Clint winning NORA last night, I can’t not post up a Credence flashback! I can’t believe that this promo for the C.C.R. and M.O.D. frames and the Credence bars is already almost two years old.
According to my IG feed Clint Reynolds took home the NORA Cup for dirt last night! I couldn’t be more stoked for him; I’m just bummed that I skipped out on Interbike this year and didn’t get to see it with my own eyes!
I can’t even believe Clint Reynolds got burned by the berm at the Pittsburgh stop of Red Bull’s Berm Burners. Try saying that five times fast! I also got to take a second to call out Mark Potoczny out for trying to jump the gate! That easily could have been another OTB right there! Good to see him back on his bike though! Spotted on PSBMX
Two things that are synonymous with summer, trails and BBQ. S&M took influence from both of those things and did a very small run of their VERY popular C.C.R. frame in a limited edition BBQ black finish. They only did five of each size (21, 21.25, and 21.5) in the finish, so you better get on it if you want to pick one up! Either hit up your favorite S&M dealer or get it direct from their webstore. Check out more pictures of this BBQ black beauty after the jump.
Sadly this POV of Anthony Napolitan tailing Clint Reynolds through the main line at Eastside is the closest I’ve gotten to the feeling of actually riding the place. They haven’t been running either do to extreme flooding or extreme drought the last four times I’ve been to Austin. Hopefully this will be the year that I finally get to put tracks other than footprints down on the place. For now I’ll just rewatch this a few more times.
I’m almost positive that all of the other competitors in X Games Dirt have been off somewhere practicing their best maneuvers these last couple of weeks leading up to the big show. Clint on the other hand has been dealing with the deluge of rain that has had a firm grip on Austin. Putting his best drainage techniques into practice has take precedent over brushing up on his front flip whips. He did manage to sneak in a few laps at the freshly drained House Park before returning to the woods to continue the draining operations there. Two X Games…
I find myself asking the same thing whenever these leftover edits come out. How did this stuff not make it into the original video? I mean yeah, the Credence DVD was packed with plenty of radness, but Clint could have slid this on in there as well!
