I’m psyched to see that the Ride boys switched things up and headed out to Wetlands to film this edit. Lots of heavy hitters in here, but I think the star is the epic (and I try not to use that word) dirt spine they have going on out there. Christ man! I’ve seen a few attempts at dirt spines over the years but never one that actually worked as well as the one in here.
I kind of figured we’d be seeing multiple edits from Kye Forte’s Green Acres Jam, and alreday here’s the second one to pop up. This time it’s Max Newberry behind the lens and edit.
I was saying just yesterday that I couldn’t wait to see a video from Kye Forte’s Green Acres Trail Jam. Ask and you shall receive because waiting for me in my inbox this morning was this edit from David Guest. The jam looked like an absolute blast! I mean how can you go wrong with beer, bands, and oh yeah… trails. How sick does that concrete berm look!?
Exotic cars and dirt jumping aren’t two things that I would think go together, but the Goodwood Festival of Speed somehow manages to successfully combine the two into one weekend of awesomeness. Ride UK put together this quick edit of some of the action going down on the dirt course; which I have to say looks pretty damn fun.
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.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge Hucker fan. Of course for his riding, but even more so for his attitude. I’ve seen the guy take the most brutal crashes and somehow be smiling as he’s bouncing around the ground. We need more dudes like Hucker because he just makes BMX look like the most fun thing you can possibly do. Dig just put up this piece on him that originally ran in Issue 98, and it gives you some insight into the mind the Hucker. GIVE IT A READ if you haven’t already done so; I think you’ll agree…
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…
Anthony Napolitan announced via Instagram that he won’t be riding for Red Bull in 2015. BFD right!? Well, maybe it is kind of a big deal when you think about it in regards to Dreamline being Anthony’s brainchild. His departure puts a serious question mark on whether or not Dreamline will live on. Who knows, maybe they’ll make Hucker the new face of it.
Here’s some classic footage the good folks at PA Woods dug up while sorting through their stockpile of media for an upcoming project. More on that later, but for now enjoy this look back to 2009. Make sure you watch it the whole way through for the crazy 540 curve wallride!
