Ask and you shall receive! Just yesterday I was thinking to myself, “I wonder what’s going on with Deluxe?”, and then what do I come across this morning during my daily perusing of the internet? This rad promo that Ty Stuy produced for them is what! It’s taken a little bit for them to get things dialed in and running, but I’m glad they’ve taken that time to do it they way that they have. Having Deluxe frames being made in the US is awesome, but having their frames being made by THEM in the motherland of trails that is…
Here’s one that’s been on my mind for a while to post up for a flashback. Jeremy may not have made the finals in The Hunt’s video contest, but this was by far the best submission in my opinion!
Profile and Geo Jenkins bringing us a quick one of Jeremy Ball throwing down some of his signature maneuvers at The Welcome Jam.
Jeremy Ball put me onto this video profiling his friend and fellow Michiganian Dakotah Norton. Dak is a sponsored downhill racer from Michigan who comes from a BMX and motocross background. Seeing as Michigan is pretty flat, he has to find alternative ways to train for DH, one of them being roasting some laps at Jermey’s trails!
Benny Polaschek gave the start of his back/side yard line a bit of a reworking last year with a fresh new roll-in (one that presumably can’t be pushed over by hand). Check out this little video of the demo and build, as well as some footage of Ben, Glenn Dussl and Jeremy Ball throwing some laps down on the newly revised setup.
I had no idea how much you guys liked this top 10 trails web edits thing until emails started pouring in over the last couple weeks asking if I was going to be doing it this year! Truth be told, I’ve been nibbling away at it since the beginning of the month but all the traveling that I’ve also been doing slowed things down a bit. It’s always a pretty tough job putting this list together, but this year was the toughest yet. After going back through 2015’s videos I ended up with a “short list” of a few dozen…
December 13th and most of the spots Deluxe visited on their Northeast trip back in the summer are still running. Maybe Al Gore was onto something!
This was essentially just a big teaser for the full edit from Deluxe’s Northeast Trip. If only all teasers were this good!
To be perfectly honest with you, I didn’t have any plans of watching any of the Ray’s “Odd Couple” videos. Nothing against it or anything, I’m just usually not in the mood to watch any park stuff. Jeremy Ball sent me the link to the winning entry that he and Andrew Taylor submitted, so I felt kind of obligated to go ahead and watch it. All I can say is that as both a fan of Jeremy, and the movie Step Brothers, I’m SOOOOO glad that I took a look. Seriously, this pure gold!
There’s one more thing to be thankful for on this fine day of giving thanks and eating turkey! Deluxe just released Ty Stuyvesant’s twelve minute documentary on their Northeast trails trip! Grab yourself a beer, some spiked eggnog, or whatever you fancy and go find yourself a quiet place away from the family to watch this. That is unless your family is the Halahans or Delfinos, then you all just gather around and watch together!
