There was a time not all that long ago where it seemed like a new BMX “brand” was popping up almost every week. Things have definitely slowed down quite a bit since then, and now a new brand being started is once again something that is newsworthy, especially when Sebastian “Bas” Keep is on the one behind it. Tall Order BMX is what he’s calling it, and the direction of the company is going to be aimed towards riding transitions. Of course that includes trails, and Bas has added Kaz Campbell, David Gilchrist and none other than Corey Bohan to…
Red Bull decided to cut out all the filler from the Rat Pack Goes South series and hit us with what someone in their marketing department decided to call “One super sick BMX action clip.” In other words it’s a minute and a half of just the riding that went down.
Red Bull’s Rat Pack wraps up with the Corey, Kris, Hucker and Jason hitting up Farm Jam and the Gorge Road Jam. Not a bad way to end a trip eh?
Rat Pack is Red Bull’s new three part series that follows Corey Bohan, Hucker, Kris Fox and Jason Watts as they adventure through New Zealand. This first episode gets rolling with the crew all meeting up and sessioning some concrete before making the drive down to the jam at Paul Langlands’ trails. 02:34 is where you’ll want to jump to if you want to get straight into the jam!
Quick edit from the action packed annual jam that Paul Langlands had in his backyard. New Zealand sure has been a hot bed of dirt action these past couple of weeks!
I seriously can’t believe that it’s been almost eight years since this came out! Back then I remember being completely blown away by the quality of the footage. Crazy to think that not even a decade later most of us have a phone in our pocket that will shoot the same quality of video.
I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for edits from the 2016 Farm Jam, and though I’ve come across a few, for the most part they’ve been pretty bad. They’ve either looked like they were filmed and edited with a mid-2000s flip phone, or they look like the cast from the Jersey Shore were given a drone and the responsibility of picking the music. Here’s the first edit that I’ve come across that is somewhat tolerable.
I was really thinking that Red Bull’s Raditudes had completely ditched having trails footage in it this season until this Blue Bench episode dropped. Best thing about the episode is that Red Bull’s athletes aren’t even the focus of it. It’s pretty cool that they let Mike Saavedra and Blue Bench have the shine!
This season of Red Bull’s Raditudes hasn’t had any trails in it up until now. I’m just going to say that they more than made up for it with this episode. Any Blue Bench footage is guaranteed to be good, but Blue Bench footage with Sergio Layos, Corey Bohan and Hucker riding the place is just amazing. I think it’s really cool that they aren’t what the episode even focuses on. The whole thing revolves around what the place means to Mike Saavedra and how being down there digging has helped him get through the injury he suffered last year….
Get the behind the scenes scoop on what went into the making of Red Bull’s “Bicycle Motocross.” It’s nice to see that the majority of the people involved with the project had some kind of connection to BMX! Have a look and then give the final product another watch after the jump.
