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!
Definitely the first time I’ve ever posted a video from Trek. I saw this video floating around yesterday with Queensland, New Zealand in the title and figured that it had to have some Gorge Road in it. It took skipping to the 02:30 mark to find it, but it is indeed in here. That brings up another first for me; seeing people ride Gorge on big bikes. It’s funny how that extra little bit of contact patch that the bigger tires have makes such a significant difference in how things sound.
Here’s a little stoke to get your weekend started off right! Ryan Lloyd gives you a first hand view of some of the fun stuff to do in Queenstown, New Zealand. Of course that includes Gorge Road, but I was equally excited to see him battling people down that wild gravity cart track. I hate to say it but that might be my first stop if I ever make it to Queenstown!
As much as I ooh and aah over New Zealand’s Gorge Road Jump Park, one thing I never thought of is what it must be like to be a kid living in Queenstown and growing up with that being your local spot. This video gives you a little insight into that. These little guys are definitely going to be some serious trail slayers when they get older. Let’s just hope that they don’t get too spoiled by having an amazing place like Gorge Road already built for them.
Last week was pretty good as far as videos go, but I got to say that “Keen to Get Mean” was my personal favorite!
