It’s been WAY too long since we’ve had some fresh Boyd footage on the site! Just when I was thinking that he may have gone and thrown in the towel, Crucial BMX comes through with this edit proving otherwise. Stoked to see that my fellow swim trunks aficionado has still got it!
Here’s Crucial’s edit from Bob Manchester’s Yard Jam. For some reason I can’t help but be reminded of the old DK Dirt Circuits when I watch this.
It’s been a couple of years since Deluxe and Crucial’s Alex Boyd packed up and made the move to Canada. I always figured that it must have been pretty tough for him to walk away from Vinewood and move halfway across the world. Real life doesn’t wait though, so that’s just what he did. During some of his recent downtime he pieced together this very reflective look at the trails he used to call home. Lots of good times right here!
It seems like everyone is starting off the New Year by clearing out old footage. Crucial BMX has been sitting on this footage from the Pumpy Jam for a good two years. Glad to see that it’s finally being freed from it’s hard drive tomb. I should mention that things start off with a street mix. Jump on ahead to 02:47 for the Pumpy part!
I knew ol’ Bobby Manchester wouldn’t let me down with the trails footage in his new CrucialBMX edit. This is also more than likely the first and last time you will ever hear me say anything about a frontflip. I’m pretty sure that’s what he does at the end of this, and it’s nuts! 00:43 and 01:38 are the trail parts in this bad boy, but you’ll probably want to watch the whole thing.
Did you really think that this week’s re-up would be anything other than this? High fives to the dudes at Crucial for making this happen!
Name: Alexander William Boyd Age: 22 Local Trails: Vinewood Hook Ups: Deluxe, Crucial BMX Shop, Duo, DIG FOUR VICTORY 1. What were the first trails you ever went to? I guess the first legit trails I went to were Shipham, but before that it was this wild place called Kingswood. It was essentially a big ass hill into this 15ft lip, 3ft long table top. You HAULED ASS down this hill and somehow got about 2ft tops out of the mega booter hahah.
