Head on over to Ride and peep Jeff Z's photo gallery
from last weekend's Bangers and Mash Jam at the Stay Strong Compound. You can also check out the edit from the jam HERE
if you missed it.
So X Games Dirt has made its triumphant return to US Soil. Dave King was in charge of building the course and I think he came up with a pretty good one. If you didn’t land decent on the second to last set you were pretty much ass out for the last one. There was a fair amount of panic pedaling going on and even more power cases. Nyquist cased so hard that he got ejected over his bars and all the way to the bottom of the landing. Even more impressive was Pat Casey’s 10/90 case. It wasn’t a 10/90 with his bike though, it was with his face! I might be being a bit overgenerous saying that 10% of his face made it over the landing because it really was pretty much only a hand and an eyelash. Somehow dude survived. Aside front the last set carnage the other highlight for me was Clint not only being in the X Games but making finals. I just wish they showed more than one of his runs. Oh well, that’s tv. (more…)
Finally some good footage of the Burlington Bike Park! I had no idea that Toledo Joe was behind it. Interesting!
Say what! Trails gracing the cover of another magazine! This time it's the latest issue of Ride
, and Clint Reynolds is on the front of it cranking a 360 lookback (bars facing the correct way this time) at Catty. The photo is from Tree's East Coast trip which you can read all about inside the mag. Congrats Clint!
I’ve been to a shit ton of dirt contest in my day but this one at Texas Toast has been the absolute best. You could actually feel the excitement and energy in the air as it was going down. Chris Childs came away with the well deserved win, and thank god he did because there would have probably been riots if he didn’t! You can check out the full results after the jump. (more…)
Here’s another Interbike Spotlight from Ride, this time with Clint Reynolds giving the lowdown on the Credence Turtleneck stem. Oh which by the way is available now! Keep your eyes and ears open because we have something cool in the works with S&M and the new Turtleneck!
Ride catches up with Mark Noble and he shows off Deluxe’s new USA made Welcome bars and PA USA frame. Having seen both of these first hand, I can attest to how good they really look! You can also check out some detail shots of the PA USA built up HERE.
Who wouldn't want some classic Clint Reynolds steez for their background?! Head over to Ride
to grab the size you need!
Ride's Friday Interview
is with none other than Derek Adams and he lets the cat out of the bag that Little Devil
will indeed be making a return! There are A LOT of stoked people right now!
I spotted this picture over on Ride and all I can say is WOW. I think Fudger hit the nail right on the head with his description. "When you catch yourself complaining that your frame is too short or that you don’t like your bars, just think of this kid in Colombia, who’s roasting a no-hander on some beat up bike with one-fucking-leg. Julian is the man." Ride
also has a video of him busting this out so head over there and peep it!
