Villa Road’s highly anticipated 2017 wrap-up video is here, and man it’s a doozy! On top of the expected clips from Woodyard, there’s also footage from Leatherhead and the crew’s trip to New Zealand. For a most radical viewing experience, grab yourself a beer, settle in on the couch and watch this on your TV if you can.
S&M ‘s Joe Simpson is one of those dudes who somehow seems to fly under the radar, but then an edit like this drops and reminds you that the dude seriously kills it. I highly doubt there’s anyone else who looks as good flowing through a line not doing any tricks, yet can fire out a mid-line decade on a whim.
I was actually expecting the video from Lima, Inch and Matt Priest’s New Zealand trip to be a Villa Road edit, but it turns out that it’s for Verde. This epic 15 minute piece follows their whole adventure but if you’re short on time or have a short attention span, 02:12 is where you’ll find the PMP Trails part, and 11:40 will put you at the beginning of the fun where they meet up with Martyn Tambling at Gorge Road. What an absolute treat it is to watch these dudes flow through those places!
As we here in the Northern Hemisphere are gearing up for our trails season to begin, our friends way down south in New Zealand are wrapping theirs up. Hop on board with Martin Sedlak as he makes the most of some fall laps with the boys at Gorge Road before the season closes out.
I thought it was a pretty funny coincidence that minutes after reading an article on New Zealand’s infrastructure being overloaded by the surge in tourism, I come across this edit from Toby Parker’s trip down there. Sorry New Zealand, when your country has incredible scenery and sweet things such as the Gorge Road Jump Park, people are going to head there in flocks!
Here we have a rather artsy edit that Flairmotion put together documenting Danny Josa’s time in New Zealand. They’re also the ones who did that Dawid Godziek edit the other day, and much like that one, this one has footage from Farm Jam, Lizzy Woods and Gorge Road.
And here we have part three of Red Bull’s tour of New Zealand. This episode starts off at Gorge Road where we learn a little about the history of the place and that there’s a possibility that their lease won’t be renewed when it’s up in two years. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed on that they do end up getting another five year extension. After that bit of shocking news the episode goes b-roll and park for a bit before picking back up at 04:01 with some footage from Lizzy Woods.
Red Bull decided to cut out all the filler from the Rat Pack Goes South series and hit us with what someone in their marketing department decided to call “One super sick BMX action clip.” In other words it’s a minute and a half of just the riding that went down.
Red Bull’s Rat Pack wraps up with the Corey, Kris, Hucker and Jason hitting up Farm Jam and the Gorge Road Jam. Not a bad way to end a trip eh?
I’m extremely jealous of Sam Bates after watching this eleven minute edit that he put together from his 2015 travels! I’d be ecstatic just to make it to one of the places that he visited. Traveling to and getting to ride Gorge Road, Villij and Spitroast all in the same year has to be pretty incredible!
