Red Bull decided to cut out all the filler from the Rat Pack Goes South series and hit us with what someone in their marketing department decided to call “One super sick BMX action clip.” In other words it’s a minute and a half of just the riding that went down.
Red Bull’s Rat Pack wraps up with the Corey, Kris, Hucker and Jason hitting up Farm Jam and the Gorge Road Jam. Not a bad way to end a trip eh?
Red Bull sent Hadrien Picard off to California to document Hucker living the dream at home in Huntington Beach. I find myself becoming even more of a fan of Hucker every time one of these pieces on him comes out. There’s lots of riding from Sheep, Wetlands and the Stay Strong Compound in this one, so hit play and enjoy the show that only Hucker can put on. Kris Fox even has a few guest clips! After your done watching you can check out some photos that Hadrien shot to go along with it HERE.
Rat Pack is Red Bull’s new three part series that follows Corey Bohan, Hucker, Kris Fox and Jason Watts as they adventure through New Zealand. This first episode gets rolling with the crew all meeting up and sessioning some concrete before making the drive down to the jam at Paul Langlands’ trails. 02:34 is where you’ll want to jump to if you want to get straight into the jam!
Quick edit from the action packed annual jam that Paul Langlands had in his backyard. New Zealand sure has been a hot bed of dirt action these past couple of weeks!
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!
