Ok, this was actually pretty damn cool! Hucker and Ryan Fudger teamed up to shoot this edit for Ride that shows you some of Hucker’s signature moves from some completely new filming perspectives. How they were able to actually get the GoPro to stay on during some of these shots, I have no clue!
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!
Well friends, I couldn’t be any happier to tell you that Ride BMX has decided to add “Trail Rider of the Year” to the list of awards they give out at this year’s NORA Cup! Gone is the previous award for “Dirt Jumper of the Year” that for the most part catered to contest dudes, except for when Clint Reynolds won it in 2015. This new award takes into account a rider’s contribution to the trails scene just as much as it does their riding. In other words, the person who wins this will be someone who puts as much, if not more time in with a shovel as they do actually riding their bike. I’m absolutely thrilled that Ride stepped up and created this new award that will acknowledge someone kicking ass in the trails community. It’s about damn time!
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
Ride BMX posted a bike check on Matty Aquizap’s whip, which of course features the final prototype of his upcoming signature Credence “Black Magic” frame. I know a lot of you are excited about that one, so head over there and check it out up close, along with the run down of what parts he has it built up with. Peep it HERE
Ride’s witty “Feeble Talk” title for these extended video interviews doesn’t quite work when you have a dirt guy like Nasty Dawg as a guest, but oh well. Being completely honest with you, I haven’t even watched this yet. Seeing as an hour interview would take a huge chunk out of an already busy day, I’m going to save it for tonight when things settle down a bit. It’s Nastazio though, so I can 100% guarantee this is going to be the most entertaining one these that Ride has done or will do!
Sorry about the lack of post yesterday! I’ve been slowly redoing by backyard for the last few weeks and yesterday was the last day to get things all wrapped up. Hopefully by now you’ve already seen Ride’s “Life After Pro” piece on Taj that they released yesterday. Chris Rye (of Props fame) produced it, and that combined with a subject who is the definition of a legend in our sport makes it something not to be missed. Watching this and seeing some of that old footage makes me really appreciate growing up riding in the era where Taj was an absolute bicycle god!
Ride caught up with everyone’s favorite bicycle ninja, Mark Mulville at Woodward Tahoe for lesson on how to do pendulums. If some aerial ninjutsu is what tickles your fancy, then you’ll want to pay close attention to this!
