Well since I don’t understand Portuguese, I can only take an educated guess at what’s being said in here. Since it’s titled as a “mini doc” and has both new and old footage of Brazil’s Cosmo Trails, I’m going to say that they discuss the trails origins and who keeps them alive and running today. I invite a Portuguese speaker to correct me if I’m wrong!
It seems like with each new edit from the Cosmo Trails there’s a little less carpet covering the jumps. With this one from their recent jam, we’ve finally reached the point where all but two pieces are gone. I never understood why you would put carpet over that fine looking dirt anyway.
I’m not going to lie, it’s kind of hard for me to take an edit with the Fu Fighters in it seriously. I’m going to go ahead and suggest hitting mute and throwing on a soundtrack of your own before you crack into this Cosmo Trails edit!
Now, I’m not usually too down with the slo-mo edits, but this one from the Cosmo Trails Jam is pretty decent. It’s short (no one wants to watch five minutes of slo-mo), for the most part they chose good clips to slow down, and the footage actually looks good (no one wants to watch slo-mo from a damn flip cam). I approve!
The turnout and level of riding at these contest/jams down in South America never ceases to amaze me, and this one at the Cosmo Trails is no exception. One thing I did notice at this contest though is that amongst all the wild tricks and entertaining crashes, there are some dudes seriously making shit look really good. Douglas Silva’s camera work definitely contributes to that as well.
It’s been a bit since we’ve seen anything new from the Cosmo Trails. Judging by this video from Rodrigo Gustavo Bueno, I’d say they’re doing pretty well down there in Brazil.
Speaking of blue grooves, look at the ones they had going on at the Cosmo Jam!
The crew from the Continental Trails loaded up a van and took a little trip to visit the Cosmo Trails and the Horto Trails. Shot out to the dude rocking the CYDI shirt and the two guys representing for the Redskins!
It’s becoming very apparent that if I’m going to keep doing CYDI that I may need to learn Portuguese. Shit is always going on down in Brazil and I’m always seeing new trails. This is the first that I’ve seen or heard of the Cosmo Trails, but they look to be another good spot and there’s a jam there on June 22nd. You know if you just so happen to be in Brazil this weekend!
