Here’s a proper River Roast edit from the man who put it all together, Mike Saavedra. We definitely are going to have to make it a point to be at the next one!
Ride coming through with 10 minutes of raw footage from last weekend’s River Roast at Milestone MX Park. It’s awesome that they not only decided to keep the trails setup from S&M’s 30 Year Jam, but that they are also going to keep letting events like this be hosted there. The night jam is going to be sick!
I really wasn’t expecting to actually watch all 18 minutes of this, but between Tom’s unique brand of commentary and the raw footage of him, Chase Hawk, Mike Saavedra, Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley and Heath Pinter shredding Palm just before it was torn down, I found myself all the way at the end before I even realized. Spotted on Ride BMX
And here we have the Urkatu section from Compression’s Septembre DVD. Coming across this today is what tipped me off that I had missed the previous section. Anyway, it always tripped me out that they had a full on legitimate resi landing at Urkatu! Don’t think I’m hatin’, I would stunt the hell out of that thing!
Oops! I almost let this first section from Compression’s Septembre DVD get past me! This is day one of the trip and the 20+ man crew gets things rolling at Le Domaine Des Culs Terreux. I hate to say it, but I totally forgot how good this was!
Mike Saavedra put this edit together from the last solo session he was able to squeeze in at the Palm Trails the week before they were razed. Spotted on Profile
Fernando Gomarin Olaiz threw together this edit from a session that he caught down at the Palm Trails with Mike and Sal Saavedra, James Hughes, Stevo Sharp and Heath Pinter. That place is quite the SoCal hot spot right now. It’s cool to see that it’s lured some dudes from the streets in to partake in some dirt roastage!
While it’s not new footage from Blue Bench, it’s footage from Blue Bench and that’s always something to get excited about. Aerial TV headed out to Riverside, CA to interview the Saavedras about the little trails oasis they created in the desert. Giving it my best guess, I’d say this was filmed around 2013? Another thing I’m not sure of is what’s going on with Blue Bench these days. Maybe 2017 will be the year that the place makes a comeback!?
I’m sure by now you all know that I’m a huge fan of the dirt program they have going on out at Woodward West. Mike Saavedra is one of the main driving forces keeping the trails dialed in and evolving out there. In this video that Woodward West dropped, he talks about some of the new stuff that got added this year and then you get to see some campers putting it to good use. That transfer looks like so much fun!
I was really thinking that Red Bull’s Raditudes had completely ditched having trails footage in it this season until this Blue Bench episode dropped. Best thing about the episode is that Red Bull’s athletes aren’t even the focus of it. It’s pretty cool that they let Mike Saavedra and Blue Bench have the shine!
