It appears that today is Hucker day here at CYDI. Him and Anthony continue their little adventure around New Zealand with some trails, helicoptering, and a bit of spear fishing.
Hucker does many impressive things, but I think hitting jumps no footed is by far my favorite one.
As if the jumps aren’t crazy enough, Hucker takes it to a whole new level! A foot blowing off on the set before won’t stop him from flipping the next one. This would be impressive under normal circumstances, but it’s particularly insane when you’re dealing with jumps this big. Oh and then there’s the whole playing with and almost getting bit by a deadly tiger snake. Dude is out of his mind.
Just when I was thinking that it had been some time since Gorge Road had showed up in a new edit. Of course Anthony and Hucker’s trip to New Zealand wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Gorge.
A couple of things here. First off, apparently Fuel TV lives on in Australia. Hope it doesn’t go all UFC like it did for us here in the States. Second, this contest gets crazier every year! The jumps don’t look as groomed as they have in the past but that didn’t stop people from going absolutely nuts. I am glad that there were some trail dudes like Chris Harti and Chris Kerr out there representing for the non-foam pit derived side of dirt jumping.
PMP sure has been getting a lot of attention this year!
The thumbnail they used for this let me to believe that it was going to be from the Farm Jam, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it’s instead from the PMP Trails. I love seeing footage of that place, and watching Hucker and Anthony Nap have to work to get through them made it even more entertaining!
This is a little heavy on stunts, but it’s still good nonetheless. Highlights for me include Hucker’s Murica shorts, and the ridiculously slow double flip at the end. I usually could care less about double flips but that thing was wild looking.
I’ve been having some major San Diego withdrawal symptoms as of late. You know, punching snowmen in the face, looking at jackets with extreme disgust, threatening to choke mother nature if I can somehow figure out how to get my hands around her neck, stuff like that. This edit from Blaine and Shawn’s has only made things worse.
I'm sure you picked up on a smidge of sarcasm in the above paragraph. It's kind of hard for me to take BMX Plus! seriously. The thing about it is that I'm 33 years old and BMX Plus! is not even remotely aimed at my demographic. Hey! I'm the same age as the number of products I shouldn't be digging without! Trippy!
Anyway, getting back to the point. Even though BMX Plus! may not appeal to me or even any of you reading this, it does serve its purpose. It's the young kids that buy it, and I'm stoked that they are doing a dirt issue with trails in it. It presents a side of BMX that you and I both love to kids who are highly impressionable and are just discovering BMX. Maybe, just maybe what's inside this issue will inspire some of them to either build some trails of their own or to seek out trails around them. Lord knows we could use some fresh blood in the woods these days!
