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.
I’m so glad that someone suggested this for the flashback post this week because I had totally forgotten how good it was. The MX Trails crew logged some serious miles back in 2014 chasing grooves all over the world. They definitely left their mark on every spot they visited, especially Foerske spinning the shark fin at Catty. That’s still talked about to this day and probably will continue to be for years to come. MADNESS!
Here is something to look forward to this coming summer! The Emieks Crew will be releasing an all trails DVD called “Trekt op nieks.” The first three and a half minutes of this teaser for it doesn’t give away much other than the fact that these guys put in plenty of time behind the shovel. The last two minutes though… Those do shed some light onto what we can expect from the DVD, and let’s just say that I’m very anxious to get my hands on a copy when it comes out!
This edit from Belgium’s MX Trails Crew definitely deserves a bump back up to the top!
Well this is fucking awesome! The MX Trails crew were once again on the move hitting up trails from Europe to America and back again. I’m bummed I didn’t get to ride with them this year, but at least they broke out the camera enough to get some rad footage to look at. That crash around the five minute mark is so gnarly!
FOERSKE! Holy shit man! I heard about some of the sets he spun on this trip but seeing is believing. Absolutely fucking mad! Pretty sure he was on a mission to spin the biggest jump at every set of trails he went to!
Seriously, this section is so good! Clint riding in an adult onesie is just icing on the cake!
I love this section from Vinyl‘s “LP” DVD! It does such a good job of capturing the good times of the trails and roasting them with friends. Now if only this winter will hurry up and be over with so we can get back to those good times!
The Belgium’s, lets just say these guys covered as much ground as possible while visiting the United States. It was such a treat watching Jeroen, Foerske, Peeters en ik, and De toeristen van den amerik (AKA: Ginger Belg). Foerske destroyed every set of trails he went to, handful of us watched him spin the biggest sets on the East Coast.

For the past two months a crew of dudes from Belgium have been cruising around the US riding spots and making friends wherever they went. They had quite the adventure, and you can see what I mean by checking out the photo gallery they just put up. I’m really glad I got to meet up with them for a bit at the Catty Jam before they headed off!
