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.
Red Bull’s new short film “Bicycle Motocross” starring Corey Bohan, Hucker and Leanna Curtis is out and arguably better than the original film that it pays tribute to! Really psyched to see that Snakewoods made it in here!
BMX Bandits was Australia’s much kookier version of Rad that starred a then unknown Nicole Kidman. I always thought that it came out after Rad but it was actually released almost three years earlier according to IMDb. I remember that HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, or whatever cable channel my parents had back then would show it all the time. Even as a kid I thought it was kind of corny, but I damn well for sure watched it every single time that it came on. The sound effects they had going on in that movie still make he crack up when…
I kind of figured we’d be seeing multiple edits from Kye Forte’s Green Acres Jam, and alreday here’s the second one to pop up. This time it’s Max Newberry behind the lens and edit.
I was saying just yesterday that I couldn’t wait to see a video from Kye Forte’s Green Acres Trail Jam. Ask and you shall receive because waiting for me in my inbox this morning was this edit from David Guest. The jam looked like an absolute blast! I mean how can you go wrong with beer, bands, and oh yeah… trails. How sick does that concrete berm look!?
Exotic cars and dirt jumping aren’t two things that I would think go together, but the Goodwood Festival of Speed somehow manages to successfully combine the two into one weekend of awesomeness. Ride UK put together this quick edit of some of the action going down on the dirt course; which I have to say looks pretty damn fun.
The fourth and final episode of Red Bull’s Tip to Tail sticks to the same formula of the crew riding a few parks and then finishing up at some trails that the previous episodes did. It would be an injustice to refer to these as just “some trails” since they happen to be Gorge Road! I do have to say that I’m pretty bummed that there’s less than a minute of footage from the session. Oh well, what can you do? 06:32 is where it gets rollin’.
I skipped posting episode two of Red Bull’s Tip to Tail because there weren’t any trails in it. Episode three doesn’t suffer from that same problem since the crew makes their way to the Moon Creek Trails. Once again I did a whole bunch of skipping through. Run it from the start if seeing a bit a park strikes your fancy this morning, otherwise jump to 03:21.
