02:02 for the first trails part at Pat Casey’s yard, and 04:18 for the second that bleeds right into the FOD part. Would have been better if the D-Man was still on the team and in it, but I guess Demolition ain’t got no love for the East Coast no more.
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!
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!
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty excited to finally get a look at what went down at the first stop of the UK BMX Dirt Series. Looks like it was a complete success if you ask me! You can check out the full results over on the Series’ website. Round 2 is tomorrow (7/16) at Shrews Trails, which I’m sure will be rad!
I had already completely forgotten that Pat Casey had trails in his backyard. I almost didn’t even watch this. I only did because I’m a big fan of Dennis Enarson. I was thinking it was going to be a bunch of wildness on Pat’s mini ramp, but it turns out that a good bit of the riding is on the trails. Sure a lot of it is contest tricks, but there are also some mellow more visually appealing (in my eyes) trains towards the end. The trail stuff is mixed in throughout so you’ll have to bite the bullet and…
Disregard the first thirty seconds of video game ramp tricks and you get two minutes and forty-five seconds of video game dirt tricks. Pat’s new backyard trails sure do look pretty fun. I wonder who built them?
I heard Adam Aloise talking about this event the other week at Dreamline. He was headed straight from NC to Vegas to build the course, and my curiosity was piqued as to what it was going to be all about. I couldn’t really wrap my brain around how a contest based on speed and style (aka tricks) would work. Well after watching this I don’t think I was the only one who didn’t know what the fuck was going on. Given I don’t know what the exact rules/judging criteria were, it basically looks like it was a dirt jumping contest…
The anticipation for Red Bull’s Dreamline has been steadily building as we’ve been getting closer to showtime. Riders are starting to trickle into Asheville as we speak and soon they’ll get to see what Adam Aloise and his crew have waiting for them. Red Bull just dropped this video with some of the invited riders talking about what they’ve been doing to get ready for the biggest dirt jumping event and jumps of the year.
I was hoping there would be an edit from this year’s Bangers & Mash since I missed the livecast. Not only is there an edit, but there’s a Dylan Pfohl edit! It looks like this years jam was a damn good time for everyone who made it out. How could it not be with Rick Thorne’s band playing? I do have a question though. Pat Casey knows that Fox shirt that he wears all the time is a dress, right?
Shit, I totally forgot that a new “Cory’s Corner” dropped while I was out of town. I love these things, but I really want him to hit up some real trails instead of these dirt jumping spots. I saw Cory ride Nam back in the day and it was fucking awesome! I wish I remembered the name of the line that had the tiny long and low that went into it. Somehow he managed to flip that thing! I want to see what he would do on some of the wild setups that are around now.
