J Bone hit me up a while back about an idea he had for a interview series revolving around trail builders who have heavily impacted the scene around them. It should go without saying that I was immediately onboard with the idea, especially when he told me that the first person he had in mind to interview was the Beltway Trails’ Denny Ward. Denny may not have started Beltway, but since he took over the reins a few years ago, he’s built both the trails and the scene around them up to a level that I don’t think anyone could…
My internet connection seems to be holding strong for the time being so I’m going to get this flashback post up before it shits out again! This is the B-Town Trails Warriors section from the Dying Breed DVD that Satoski put together way back when. Can’t go wrong with some Posh footage, no matter what the year! Maybe we’ll see another video from him sometime in the future. I hear he may just have something new in the works!
None other than Jimmy Levan himself showed up at Posh the last time I was time I rode there. He wasn’t riding but he was full of stories, including a few about his visit to the original Posh Trails for a legendary underground contest they held there back in 1992. Coincidentally this hour of footage from that very contest popped up online just a couple weeks later. It’s pretty crazy to see some of the stuff dudes were going for back then. The 720 attempt at 38:33 is one of my favorites in here by far! There’s also a ton…
A fitting flashback seeing as I’m about to hit the road for a quick day trip to Posh!
I’ve always been a huge fan of Doug Foulke’s edits. There’s just something about them that truly captures the pure essence of riding trails. I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted to post for a flashback edit this week, that was until I randomly stumbled back across this Sekt Mix from half a decade ago!
Here’s something I never imagined I would see in my lifetime; Legend, Trail Shaman, and inverted stem aficionado, Jay Bone is now running a top load stem top side up. Be prepared because I’m certain that this means that the apocalypse is rapidly bearing down upon us!
I know I’ve said it before, but there have been so many good videos these last few weeks. This one from PA Woods is up there amongst my favorites!
Janis has made quite a return to video making with these last few PA Woods edits. This third and final one of the year is my personal favorite because it really conveys the sense of not just how much fun riding trails is, but also how much fun it is just being in the woods with friends. Poor Schwartz at the end though!
I was excited to watch this to get a good look at all the work that Evan Eisenhard has been putting in at his spot. All the other footage from Posh and Catty is just an added bonus!
Dig just posted the “Over 30 and Still in the Woods” piece they did on Jay Longeran that ran in issue 98. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone more respected and revered in the trail world than Jay Bone. It’s a must read if you haven’t done so already, and a damn fine re-read if you have.
