What do you do when you’re thrown off of a pirate ship and wash up onto the shores South Africa? If you’re Nick Clarke you grab a bike and head off to every set of trails you can.
South Africa is where Jiří Zouhar chose to seek refuge from the Czech winter this year. This quick video from the legendary Gum Trails is the first of many edits that I’m sure we’ll be seeing from his time there. Looks to me like he picked a pretty good place to spend the winter!
This is actually a whole Greg Illingworth edit filmed on his home turf of South Africa, but the only thing I was looking for was if it happened to have some South African trails in it. I’m happy to report that it indeed does! Jump on ahead to 02:12 to get to the part where Greg cruises the Gum Trails.
You got to be a little heavy handed on the skipping but if you jump ahead to 02:00 there’s a solid 50 seconds of Lima shredding the Gum Trails. I love the use of rollers at that place!
Hop onboard with Justin Novella for a POV run through the fine South African soil of the Gum Trails.
