If you saw our video from last weekend's Take It Back Jam then you definitely know that checking out this gallery is a must. Brian Yeagle was kind enough to shoot the photos for it and also did a little write up on the jam. Check out both of them as well as our brand new gallery layout after the jump. (more...)
We were on had to document The Take It Back Event in the Western Pennsylvania area. The event was a in a Jam format where the riders rode the trails for 3 hours and the riders were judged by their peers in the jam. 1st Place went to Mark Potoczny. 2nd Place Adam Aloise. 3rd Place Tyler Valentik, he also took home some cash for (Best Whip). After the event Guests Of Guests played a nice little set for the crowd. The night before the Jam, big thunderstorms rolled through. The overnight showers made the jumps that much better in the hot blazing sun. I’m sure everyone had red backs by 2PM. A big thank you goes out to Bo Schatschneider for hosting the festivities.

Mark Noble posted this pic of a freshly printed sticker sheet for Mark Potczny's signature Deluxe "PA Model" frame. No word yet as to when the frame will be out, but I would imagine that we'll be seeing them sometime soon.
Deluxe has really been pumping out the bike checks lately, and up next is Mark Potoczny's prototype PA Model. I've been wondering what was going on with the PA model since it's been in the prototype stages for quite a while now. Word on the street is that Deluxe is working to have it made in the USA.
Speaking of Mark Potoczny, here’s another POV from the man himself. H-Wood is big, fast, scary, and has been known to make grown ass men break down into tears. Take a look at Mark’s runs through Talladega, Minaj, and Big Foot and you’ll understand why. -Via Deluxe
Mark gets it sideways for Teddy Van Orman's camera in this new Deluxe ad that's running in issue 190 of Ride. Spotted on The Union (though I saw the actual print version last week). Imagine that! Seeing something in print before it's online! Check out the full ad after the jump. (more...)
Damn another wild looking box rhythm section with a pump track to boot. Mark Potoczny continues his reign of POV dominance by coming through with these runs through Joy Ride 150 up in Toronto. I’ve heard of the park before but had no idea they had worked in stuff like this.
Mark Potoczny follows and then passes his brother Mike through the Wheel Mill‘s Woods Jump Room. Usually this time a year thoughts of riding trails would be the only thing on my mind, but man I want to go put in some laps on those boxes.
Due to some major ball ups with my financial institution I wasn't able to make it out to the Vinyl premiere. I was already pretty salty about it, but after seeing the photos of the premiere my salinity level is comparable to that of the Dead Sea. Oh well, at least I was able to get a lot done at the trails. Head over to Vinyl and check out a ton of photos from the premiere and the hangover session the day after.
There's no doubt that you've been admiring that Vinyl ad we have over in the sidebar. Well now you can download a wallpaper of that very same photo of Mark Potoczny shot by Brian Yeagle. Vinyl has a couple of different size options for you to choose from, so head over there and grab one now.
