What a pleasure it was to wake up this morning and the first thing that I see is that the crown jewel of The Backbone Video is finally online. Watch it, get stoked, tell your boss you can’t make it in today, and then go lay some tracks down somewhere!
Trail rider owned and operated, this right here is why Back Bone is fucking awesome!
All you people who didn’t get a copy of the Back Bone Video, rejoice because they’ve started putting sections from it online. The first two up are the intro (which you can check out below) and Russell Brindley’s section up above. They need to get working on another video ASAP so we can get some more Rusty footage!
5050bmx’s Kurt Perkins and Jonesy Fedderson said sayonara to Utah’s cold weather and hopped on a plane bound for warm and sunny Australia. They mixed it up between parks and trails but if trails is all you want to see, you’ll find them ripping those at 01:27 and 03:23!
Thanks to the awesome dudes at Back Bone and this jam that they put on every year, Dane’s legacy and influence continues to live on!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since Dane Searls passed. It somehow doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that we were all first blown away with his Giants of Dirt project. In reality it’s been half a decade, and even though that much time has passed by nobody still has yet to accomplish what he did back then. Every year the crew at Back Bone throw a jam to honor Dane’s memory, and every year more and more people show up to pay their respects to a man who inspired so many. The wind…

Back Bone has done an amazing job of keeping his memory alive by bringing people together with an annual jam to celebrate his life. Once again it will be at Hillfire Trails, and you should know by now that it will be an epic time!
Ask Back Bone Wednesday is back and the submitted question they picked to answer this week is, “Can I ride your trails?”. The trails in question are the Hillfire Trails that we’ve become quite familiar with from many a Back Bone edit and from their video. Those trails are pretty gnarly and I’m surprised that any kid wanting to ride them wouldn’t already be well aware of the rules and contributions required to do so. I do have a tendency to give kids too much credit though. Anyway, what Rhysty breaks down in this for anyone wanting to ride Hillfire…
This piece that Brendan Boeck put together on Back Bone and Terrible One’s Russell Brindley has kept me stoked all week!
I’m not exactly sure when it was that I first saw Russell Brindley ride. If I had to guess, I would say it was at one of those crazy contest that Red Bull did in Australia where they carved out a ravine into a course that was part trails and part park. I don’t remember the exact details of it, but what I do remember is that Russ absolutely killed the thing. Hell, he may have even won it! I’ve been a big fan of his ever since, and that said, I was beyond excited when I opened up an…
