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!
I saw Fudger creeping around in the first edit that came out from Blaine’s Jam, so I figured that Ride would be putting out one of their own sooner or later.This one is definitely a lot more official than the other one! Lots of big names in here, and as an added bonus they hit up Shawn’s yard for a little evening session.
I mean I know Red Bull’s Urban Rhythm was in Houston and all and that they like the Sizzurp down there, but a completely slowmo edit may be a little much.
Demolition switched things up this year and headed to the Northwest for their trails trip. I was actually expecting this to be mostly skatepark footage with how much rain they encountered on the road. I’m happy to say that that’s not the case, and other than a few clips from a concrete park this is all Northwest trails goodness!
Well it’s about damn time! The official video from Red Bull’s Urban Rhythm is finally here and it not only shows you the event but also what went into making it happen. I was down there for it and when I woke up in the morning and saw how hard it was raining I all but wrote it off. They managed to get stuff dried out in time and even though it was cold (thank god I took my hand warmer) and a bit misty the event went off without a hitch.
It seems like a full edit from Red Bull’s Urban Rhythm would have popped up by now. I’m not sure what’s taking so long, but here’s a POV from Hucker to tide you over until one does.
Go behind the scenes with Hucker, Dave King, and the rest of the DirtSculpt crew as they figure out how to make the Trail Loop a reality.
