Just in case this weekend’s weather has got you down, here’s a little pick-me-up courtesy of the fine folks at Back Bone!
What a pleasure it was to wake up this morning and the first thing that I see is that the crown jewel of The Backbone Video is finally online. Watch it, get stoked, tell your boss you can’t make it in today, and then go lay some tracks down somewhere!
There’s quite a few places on my bucket list that I hope to make it to day, and my buddy Will and his brother Chris’ spot in Young, Australia is up towards to top! I can’t even believe this edit from 2020 is already four years old.
Back Bone’s 2011 Trailmix is one of my favorite trails edits of all time and just what I needed to rewatch to help boost the ol’ spirits during this cold snap we currently have going on here in the North East!
I don’t even care that there’s only about a minute of trails footage in this Cosmic Rumble edit! There could have been none and I would have still been stoked to watch Dylan Lewis and Jett Man crushing concrete parks along the way to the A.C.T. Jam! If you do feel compelled to skip through that, 04:44 is where you’ll find the trails session with Chris Harti, Raine Turnbull and Angus Samson.
For the fourth time riders from all over Australia came together to remember the legendary Dane Searls. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been four years. Dane had such a lasting impact on BMX that it seems like just yesterday that we were all still in awe over Giant’s of Dirt. Even with the wind not 100% cooperating at this year’s jam, everyone still had a blast celebrating the life and legacy of one of the baddest dudes to ever pick up a bike.
Taking a quick break from stirring the BMX racing pot to re-up James Fox’s edit from the Snakewoods Last Call Jam. Usually I hate edits that don’t get straight on to it with the riding, but the intro in this one is priceless. It’s exactly what I would expect from the Snakewoods Crew. I just wish I had the backstory on why that poor guy was grazing like a cow! I feel he must have lost some kind of bet.
I’ve been waiting for James Fox’s edit from the Snakewoods Last Call Jam to drop and it definitely didn’t disappoint one bit! As much of a bummer as it is that the end is near for Snakewoods, I’m glad that they were able to send the place off in such a proper fashion! Last clip is seriously one of the craziest things I’ve seen in a long time!
About this time last year I sat down and compiled a list of The Top 10 Trails Web Edits of 2013 (according to me). It wasn’t easy to whittle all of 2013’s edits down to just ten but I was happy with the final list. A few weeks ago I decided that I would keep the tradition alive and put together a list of 2014’s 10 best trails edits. This year was way tougher than last year! It really wasn’t too bad narrowing down a years worth of edits to just ten. A rainy evening, a few good beers and…
I’m telling you right now that this will be on the list of top 10 trails edits this year.
