I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for edits from the 2016 Farm Jam, and though I’ve come across a few, for the most part they’ve been pretty bad. They’ve either looked like they were filmed and edited with a mid-2000s flip phone, or they look like the cast from the Jersey Shore were given a drone and the responsibility of picking the music. Here’s the first edit that I’ve come across that is somewhat tolerable.
Just spotted this Brian Castillo shot FOD gallery over on the Demolition site and had to post up my favorite picture from it. The D-Man has some of the finest no-footed cans in the game, and damn did this hip at FOD let him stretch out the ol’ legs! Bust on over to the Demolition site and check out a couple more Doyle pics, as well as some from Kris Fox and Matt Cordova.
The fourth and final episode of Red Bull’s Tip to Tail sticks to the same formula of the crew riding a few parks and then finishing up at some trails that the previous episodes did. It would be an injustice to refer to these as just “some trails” since they happen to be Gorge Road! I do have to say that I’m pretty bummed that there’s less than a minute of footage from the session. Oh well, what can you do? 06:32 is where it gets rollin’.
I skipped posting episode two of Red Bull’s Tip to Tail because there weren’t any trails in it. Episode three doesn’t suffer from that same problem since the crew makes their way to the Moon Creek Trails. Once again I did a whole bunch of skipping through. Run it from the start if seeing a bit a park strikes your fancy this morning, otherwise jump to 03:21.
Japanese distro Motocross International celebrated their 35th birthday with an event that brought racers, dirt jumpers, bmx icons, and locals together for two days of fun. Kris Fox, Justin Inman and others boosted the jumps while racers kept it low on the race course right beside them. Steve Crandall was even creeping around shooting photos. Looks like it was one hell of good time if you ask me!
With a crew consisting of Corey Bohan, Kris Fox, and Hucker, I’ve been looking forward to seeing what they got into on Red Bull’s Tip to Tail New Zealand trip. I’m not going to lie, I did a fair amount of skipping through this first episode until I got to the part where they ride Paul Langlands yard. In my skipping I did happen to land on some hilarity of Corey talking shit on Chris Doyle’s seat height. No clue where it was though, so you’ll have to watch the whole thing to find it. That’s not necerarrily a bad…
I hadn’t even heard of Red Bull’s “Makin It” until this popped up on my feed. I don’t know the backstory behind the series but this episode has Kris Fox and a few dudes cruising the Stay Strong Compound.
I heard Adam Aloise talking about this event the other week at Dreamline. He was headed straight from NC to Vegas to build the course, and my curiosity was piqued as to what it was going to be all about. I couldn’t really wrap my brain around how a contest based on speed and style (aka tricks) would work. Well after watching this I don’t think I was the only one who didn’t know what the fuck was going on. Given I don’t know what the exact rules/judging criteria were, it basically looks like it was a dirt jumping contest…
Never in a million years did I ever think that I’d be watching a trails edit with a Salt-N-Pepa soundtrack! I’m not going to bullshit you, I got instantly hyped up as soon as I heard that first “heeeeyyyyyy, yeah.” To tell you the truth, the song worked perfectly with the vibe of this year’s Decoy Jam. Nothing but good times and smiles out there!
Demolition has a really good interview up with Hucker and Kris Fox where they talk about the influence Sheep Hills has had on them. I usually tend to think negatively when I think about Sheep. It’s kind of hard not to when you’ve grown up on the East Coast with the best trails in the world. This gives a cool perspective on what it was like being a kid when Sheep was in its heyday. Putting the chrome pitting moon dust, homeless tweakers, RC car photo shoots, and god knows what other ridiculousness that has occurred out there aside, it must…
