Dave King (the UK version) has been strangely absent from the trails video making scene for the past couple of years. He’s definitely one of my favorite dudes behind the lens, so let’s hope that he resurfaces this season with some more magic like this “August in 50 Frames Per Second” edit from 2008!
I’m going with a Dave King classic for this week’s flashback! Seeing as it’s a gloomy rainy day here on the East Coast, this twelve minute long Derelict edit from the summer of 2008 is just what I needed to rediscover to brighten the spirits.
Check out this behind the scenes look at what went into bringing the dirt contest in the Heroes of Dirt movie to life. I never really though about it until I watched this, but it’s pretty cool that they built and organized an authentic contest just for the movie. There’s also some Catty footage from the movie, complete with a couple of HIGHLY quotable lines from the Catty Crew mixed in here as well!
Not the Crow Trails that we’ve been seeing a lot of lately, but the old UK spot by the same name. I’m pretty sure this was the first I had ever seen of Damo Wilkinson, and boy did it make an impression. That said, it sure would be nice to see more of Damo. For some reason he’s always tended to fly under the radar. This edit is six years old and still pretty amazing. Maybe if we get lucky Damo will team up with Dave King again to pump out another one of these gems.
The Powers Bike Shop crew got the chance to check out the new Louisville Mega Cavern jumps a few weeks back and they did a little filming while they were down there. This place has a lot of people talking and I foresee some trips to Louisville getting added to more than a few agendas this winter. Not to take away from the place or anything but I can’t help but wonder what the result would have been had they brought in some trail builders like Dave King or Adam Aloise.
Edits have been flowing like creek water out of Woodyard this year, and here’s one from the man who introduced me to Woodyard in the first place. Dave King (the UK version), I will forever be grateful to you for that!
We’re just five days away from one of the most exciting events that will be going down this year. Mike Gentilcore and Dave King have been hard at work getting everything in place to make the TRA Double Cross & Dirt Jump Comp a unique event that you’re not going to want to miss. If you’re within driving distance of Bethlehem, PA then I highly suggest you plan on being there this Saturday (October 4th) to check it out. Just hit the jump button and get a look at some pics of the course being build and the insane list…
Dave King recently finished up creating a new masterpiece at Cranx Bike Park in Syracuse, NY. So now not only can you cruise an awesome indoor rhythm section, but you can venture outside and roast some actual dirt. Currently the outdoor section is open Thursday through Sunday. Better get up there and get some laps in before the weather shuts it down! You can check out some more pics of the new dirt park over on the Dirtsculpt site.
So X Games Dirt has made its triumphant return to US Soil. Dave King was in charge of building the course and I think he came up with a pretty good one. If you didn’t land decent on the second to last set you were pretty much ass out for the last one. There was a fair amount of panic pedaling going on and even more power cases. Nyquist cased so hard that he got ejected over his bars and all the way to the bottom of the landing. Even more impressive was Pat Casey’s 10/90 case. It wasn’t a…
Victor Behm should consider himself lucky that dialing in the trails won out over me heading down to Richmond for this!
