Thinking back to that vlog from the Wetlands that I posted a couple weeks ago, I remember that there were a shit ton of people creeping around in the background with cameras. Looks like this Dallin Brooks guy was one of them and was doing some vlogging of his own. I’m not into the whole vlog thing, but seeing as the first four minutes of this is decent Wetlands footage, I won’t hate on it too much.
Here’s the section from the Vans Illustrated video that I’ve been waiting for to be online; Hucker, Nasty, TJ Ellis and Pat Casey taking it old school and throwing down on one single big jump! Seeing as Fuzzy set the whole thing up, it’s only fitting that he got to sneak one of his signature moves into the session!
Heavy very well may be an understatement! Dylan Stark vlogs his way through a Wetlands session that consist of pretty much a who’s who of BMX and MTB pros. If there was ever a day to be down there to watch a show, this was it!
I’m a Harry’s man personally. Mainly because I’m cheap and hate paying a ton for razors, but after seeing this I may have to make the switch to Gillette if they’re going to start showing love to BMX and building dirt jumps!
I knew I spotted little Tioga FS100 influence in Hucker’s new signature Demolition Hammerhead tires! Hucker confirms that and breaks down just how these new rubbers came to be in a little interview over on Demolition’s site. Give it a read HERE!
We’ll just go ahead and knock out all out Hucker related news now! He also has some new signature tires from Demolition that just dropped. The Hammerhead tires have a micro-knurled wraparound rectangular tread pattern and are available in street and trails versions (same tread pattern, just raised up a bit on the trails version). Both can be pumped up to 110 psi, feature a long lasting rubber compound and are available in 2.25″ and 2.4″ sizes. How long is long lasting you may ask. Well, according to Demolition, Hucker rode the same pair of sample tires for almost and…
Well new for the Hucker frames at least! Those of you who have been around for a while may recognize those colors and style of graphics from the early Holmes frames. It’s cool when brands pay homage to their history by doing stuff like this. Better start hitting up your favorite S&M Dealer now if you want to get your hands on one!
Thanks to the awesome dudes at Back Bone and this jam that they put on every year, Dane’s legacy and influence continues to live on!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since Dane Searls passed. It somehow doesn’t seem like it was all that long ago that we were all first blown away with his Giants of Dirt project. In reality it’s been half a decade, and even though that much time has passed by nobody still has yet to accomplish what he did back then. Every year the crew at Back Bone throw a jam to honor Dane’s memory, and every year more and more people show up to pay their respects to a man who inspired so many. The wind…
So we are skipping part one of this Red Bull series and jumping straight into the second (for the time being at least). The reason being is that the two minutes of Farm Jam footage that you’ll find in here at 02:43 is worth going ahead and bypassing the whole first episode and the first half of this one. Sure, there were already plenty of Farm Jam edits earlier this year, but the footage in this has a film-like quality that looks extra rad.
