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.
Garrett Byrnes is a mac daddy! Flashback Friday with Seek and Destroy. This section is very well rounded with some awesome trail and street riding. You can view the whole video here.
Terrible One‘s Freaky Friday this week is a bike check with the one and only Garrett Byrnes. Pretty much what you’d expect out of Mr. Byrnes setup except for one thing. He’s running clamp-on ergonomic grips! I’ve cruised around on some hybrids with those grips and they are pretty comfy, but I can’t imagine what it would be like running them on the BMX. Check out the flip book of Garrett’s whip HERE.
