I’d be lying if I said that I had any inclination that I’d be reviewing a trails DVD this year. With how easy it is these days to slap some footage together and throw it up on YouTube or Vimeo, I thought the days of DVDs were unfortunately behind us. Luckily our Belgium friends from the MX Trails decided not to go the easy route, and instead took the footage they’ve been gathering up for the past few years from their travels around the world and turned it into a proper full length trails DVD.
Of fucking course Joe Symonds’ Stronghold section is getting a bump back up to the top!
Holy hell, this Joe Symonds character is a fucking animal! Stronghold describes him as “The greatest trail rider you’ve never heard of”, and as strong of a statement as that is, I don’t think I can disagree!
Another ass kicking section from Stronghold! This time it’s Tom O’Boyle globetrotting his way around the world destroying every set of trails, concrete transition and bowl corner that gets in his way!
What a fine Monday for edits this is turning out to be! I was honestly pretty skeptical as to whether or not Trailfever would have enough footage to make a second and third edit from the trip that they took last year that would be on par with the first one they dropped. This Motörhead fueled second edit certainly puts all my doubts aside! I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the third!
You’re in for a real treat when you hit play on Scott Buchanan’s section that was supposed to be in the Stronghold DVD. This is only the second section that has been released but I’m already to see a common theme among them; these dudes kick some serious ass! Though I do wish that the Stronghold DVD had materialized, I am glad that the sections that were filmed for it are seeing the light of day via the web. You can check out Titch’s section HERE if you missed it the other week.
It was right around a year and a half ago that I posted THIS trailer for the Stronghold DVD. I was pretty damn excited about getting my hands on a copy of the DVD when it came out, but unfortunately that wasn’t meant to be. Though there won’t be a physical DVD, the sections for it were completed and Stronghold will be releasing them biweekly. First up is Richard “Titch” Thomas’ section which Stronghold describes as “Titch smashing the pussy out of Grandma’s Trails and various other places.” I’d have to say that’s a very accurate description of exactly what…
This isn’t an edit, it’s a full on thirty minute trails movie! PSA, Vauxhall, Blackwoods, Grandmas, they’re all in here! To quote Dig (not Dig the magazine, Dig aka Adam who made it), “Go grab a fucking beer or a brew and settle down and watch the summer again!!” I’m just bummed my Apple TV shit the bed so I can’t watch this on the big screen!
