The Trail Rider of the Year category for NORA Cup will always be near and dear to my heart, and something that puts a smile on my face. A smile not only because I’m stoked that the category now exist, but also because it makes me laugh thinking back to the conference call I was on in order to make it happen. I’ll just say this, we were dangerously close to being lumped into the Transition Rider of the Year category! Having to explain how someone like these fine gentlemen nominated for the award this year differ from let’s say…
Now, who didn’t see this coming? Matty is now officially flying the flag for Relic, and we get the benefit of a rippin’ two minute edit to celebrate the occasion. Safe to say that this is a win-win for everybody! Spotted on DIG
Leftover Clint, Matty and Hucker footage from S&M’s “Hot Dogs Who Can’t Read” DVD! Fuck yeah!
Our pal Brian Barnhart is running a sale over on his site and you can pick up one of his amazing photo prints for up to $100 off if you order before Thursday night. Any one of them would make for a perfect Christmas gift, and with a mix of BMX, outdoor and travel photos to choose from, there’s something to suit anyone’s taste. Check them out HERE!
If you still make a Christmas list here’s something to add to it. Stew Johnson has been filming off and on with the Clint, Matty and Nutter for a couple years now and it’s finally coming all together into a new Credence video called “Live Free or Die.” GET STOKED!
You know it’s going to be a good day when you wake up to find that S&M has put the full length Credence “Feel My Chest Muscles I’m A Trail Builder” DVD online! Now you just need to find yourself somewhere at work where you can hideout for 30 minutes so you can watch it.
Just in case this weekend’s weather has got you down, here’s a little pick-me-up courtesy of the fine folks at Back Bone!
What a pleasure it was to wake up this morning and the first thing that I see is that the crown jewel of The Backbone Video is finally online. Watch it, get stoked, tell your boss you can’t make it in today, and then go lay some tracks down somewhere!
I know for a fact that a lot of you have been waiting for this announcement! The wait is over for Matty Aquizap’s signature S&M Credence “Black Magic” frame. It doesn’t look like any of the mail orders have them in quite yet, but you can damn sure snatch one up right now straight from the S&M Store for $354.95. Now will it make you go as high as Matty? Probably not, but it’s built tough as fuck in case you hang up trying to do so. One touch that I’m particularly fond of is the 5″ tall headset so…
Ride BMX posted a bike check on Matty Aquizap’s whip, which of course features the final prototype of his upcoming signature Credence “Black Magic” frame. I know a lot of you are excited about that one, so head over there and check it out up close, along with the run down of what parts he has it built up with. Peep it HERE
