I’ve got a few things I’ve been meaning to bump back up to the top, so expect to see them resurfacing over the course of the weekend. I’m going to start things off with this edit that our man Jake Dyke put together from the footage he shot with his iPhone at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out a Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor.
Very, very, very rarely do I post things on here that don’t have any trails in them. This is one of those extra special occasions that I do and I highly doubt anyone will question it. I’ve been lucky enough to have been able to call Garrett a friend for the better part of a decade and a half. I’ve also been able to do the same with Ryan Navazio for just about as long. They came together to work on this promo for the new Terrible One and Animal collaboration tire, and the result is pure magic. Classic Garrett…
Our man Jake Dyke whipped up this little iPhone edit from the footage he shot at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out the new Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor. Richie Sakai was kind enough sing a few bars for the intro, and of course we had to throw in a star wipe for good measure because, “why eat hamburger when you can have steak?“
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all aren’t too hungover from all the celebrating that was going on last night. Post are going to be a little slow for the next few days because the internet where I am is pretty spotty. I’ll be back up to speed next week and you can look forward to our annual roundup of the top ten trails web edits from the last year. All that said, here’s our first flashback post of 2016, and it’s a good one if I do say so myself! This coverage of the jams at Baker’s Acres…
Garrett’s bike checks are always interesting, and thanks to T1‘s Freaky Friday we get to see his latest. His sprocket has grown a bit since the last one, but he’s still running those crazy ergo grips!
Bryan Carter put together this edit of one of the final sessions at Dutch. Watching this makes me wish even more that I had made it up there. It’s a real shame that the the township couldn’t see what a unique and positive place they had harmlessly occupying some unused woods.
I seriously regret not making it to Posh this year.
Part 2 of The Black Magic Sessions is my favorite out of the three. Don’t get me wrong, part 1 and 3 were also great, but part 2 just does it for me. I think it’s because a majority of the footage is from the end of the season and the feeling of how precious those sessions are really comes across in it.
GB in Little Devil’s “Criminal Mischief”. This is one of my all time favorites, so fuck it if there is only a 30 second trail clip in here.
Epic is a word that gets tossed around much too often these days, yet there’s no better word to describe this Fox video. Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara riding Spanish dirt all captured in slow motion by Joe Rich. Garrett Byrnes even has a few clips! I’ve watched this video dozens of times, and every time I do it’s just as amazing to me as it was when I first saw it three years ago.
