This video I stumbled across from the Graveyard Trails Summer Jam was nothing like I expected. For some reason I had in my head that the Graveyard Trails had long since fallen into disrepair, and these days there were just a few groms left riding the remnants. WRONG! The trails and level of shredding going on there looks as good as it ever has!
KILLSHIT edits NEVER disappoint!
2016 was a pretty quiet year at the Graveyard Trails. With some guys traveling, some moving onto other things and some moving away altogether, the place has pretty much been a ghost town ever since the jam back in April. Recently though, some younger kids have discovered the trails and started to get them rolling again. I think we can all agree that fresh blood is definitely something we need in the trails scene. I really hope that these guys stick with it and continue to pick up where the generation before them at Graveyard left off.
Our bud Tyler Trueman brings us this first look at last weekend’s Graveyard Trails Jam. With the jam ripping as hard as it was, I honestly can’t believe he put his bike(s) down long enough to pick up the camera!
Schertz, Texas is the place to be on April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd because the 6th annual Graveyard Trails Jam will be going down! They’re also throwing a pro/am dirt jumping contest during the jam, so bring your bag of tricks and a $20 bill if you want to get down on that! Hit up their FB events page for more info!
My heart goes out to all the trail builders down in Texas that have been dealing with crazy rains and flooding. The pictures that have been popping up on social media are hard to even look at. The ones above are from Graveyard and 9th Street, but I can tell you that Eastside and Tejano aren’t looking much better. I imagine that Red Box, Hush, and Ant Hills also look about the same. As bad as things are, I know the crews down there will get things sorted out and have the trails running better than ever. That’s the thing about trail builders, for the most part we are able to take the bad things that Mother Nature dishes out and turn them into positives. Sure it may entail more work than even we knew we could possibly do, but we get it done. Best of luck to everyone down there. If you happen to be in Texas sometime in the next few weeks, get in touch with someone at the trails down there and lend a hand. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it!
It’s about time we get a video from the Graveyard Trail Jam! It looks like they were running amazing, especially considering how much they were battling the rain leading up to the jam. Give this edit that Sean Martinez made a watch and then start planning on being there next year!
It was a bummer last week when heavy rains forced the Graveyard Jam to be rescheduled, but that’s behind us and there isn’t a drop of rain in sight for tomorrow’s jam. Just as I expected, Tyler and the crew used the extra week to keep digging, and the trails are running even better now than they would have been last week. If you’re anywhere within driving distance of San Antonio, then you should really do yourself a favor and make sure you’re at the jam tomorrow!
Expected heavy rains have forced the Graveyard Trails Crew to postpone the jam a week to March 28th. It’s definitely a bummer for everyone who’s already made arrangements to be there this weekend, but I can guarantee that with the way they’ve been digging down there, you’ll be rewarded with even more stuff to ride with the week delay.
The trees at the Graveyard Trails are out for blood!
