Ok not really, it’s just available on walmart.com through one of their retail partners. Still funny nonetheless! Click HERE if you want to cop one, and let’s just hope that Darin’s old Diamondback contract included royalties in perpetuity.
Sorry I’ve been slaking on the flashback post lately. Hopefully this gem from the NW will get me back in your good graces!
While it may not be all trails, there’s more than enough NW soil in this friends section from 2001’s Blueprint video to make it a suitable flashback post for this week. I had to skip back a couple times to rewatch Darin Read’s candy bar to no footed can can! Spotted on Snakebite
The looming destruction of yet another legendary set of trails got me to thinking about others we’ve lost in the last few years. I was always in awe of Lynnwood; the big moss covered jumps, the sweeping berms, the dense forest canopy that covered the place, it was everything that came to mind when I thought of trails in the Pacific NW. Dan Closser’s edit was one of the final bits of footage to come from the place, and I think it did a great job of not only showing what the spot had become, but also showing the kind…
“This is for the few riders out there who live to build & ride trails, especially those whose hard work has been plowed to the ground. It means a lot more to build your own spot than to go ride one that’s already there. May the underground live forever…”
Standard definition or not, this edit is awesome! I mean how could you go wrong with an edit that has W.A.S.P. for the soundtrack and features NW legends GJ, Darin Read, Jake Shuster and a few other guys cruising some long gone trails? Stoked this one made its way online!
Having never seen the Shola video, I must tip my hat to Snakebite for posting Darin Read’s part from it!
It may be a little bit fuzzy but here’s Building The Underground in it’s entirety! A whole lot of people (including myself) have been waiting for this to be online for years now. Enjoy!
You are absolutely blowing it if you haven’t already watched Elliot Van Orman’s new film, “A Washington Summer” by now! Even if you have, it’s definitely worth another watch!
I was off the grid in the Shenandoah Valley yesterday so I’m a bit late to the party with posting this! Elliot Van Orman headed up to Washington last summer to visit his brother and spend some time checking out the scene up there. He documented the entire trip, and the result is this fifteen minute trails filled video. I love Elliot’s work because he does an amazing job of not only capturing the riding, but also the vibe around it.
