The Night Harvest has really become one of the premier dirt jumping events of the year. With both BMX and MTB classes, more and more pros from both worlds are making the pilgrimage to Cape Town, South Africa every year for it. Weather issues have kept the contest from being the best it could be in the past, but not this year. The weather gods were happy and the riding that went down hit a whole new high as a result!
TJ better slow down on these! At this rate sometime within the next month he will have interviewed every single last person on earth who’s ever touched a BMX bike! Here he has the one and only Mike Clark sit down on the couch to talk about helmets, girls, mullets, riding and everything else that makes Hucker the absolute savage that he is.
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!
