Holy hell, I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I did a flashback post. I knew it had been a bit, but damn! Hopefully this video that Joe Rich cooked up eight years ago for Fox will make up for me dropping the ball for so long. I mean, if six minutes of Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara doing Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara things at various Spanish trails doesn’t make up for it, I don’t know what will.
I figured I better come up with something exceptional for a flashback post since I’ve missed getting one up for the last couple of weeks. Pretty much everything T-1 does is exceptional, so I feel this video from their 2011 Australia tour should more than make up for my slacker ways. Man, I totally forgot Tom Dugan used to be on T-1!
I’ve been waiting for some video to surface from Ruben’s dirt creations at the Malaga Skatepark. This video isn’t crazy or anything but it gives you a pretty good overview of what they have going on there.
If you follow Ruben’s Instagram then you may have already have seen a few pics of the trails he’s constructing next to skatepark that bears his name in Malaga. I came across the picture above and quite a few more from Yoni Cadenas in a post on Fisure BMX and I’m completely blown away by the scale of the project. The trails occupy just as much, if not more space than the actual skatepark does. Not to mention they look amazing! Head over to Fisure BMX to check out some more pics.
I was putting my money on Morgan taking the win at Red Bull’s Quarter Master but in the end it was Hucker who went the highest. Kurt and I were joking around the other day about how much money it would take for one of us to hit that thing at full speed (brakes removed so you can’t bitch out). I think I settled on 10k plus medical expenses.
Not only is Red Bull’s Quarter Master back, it’s back even bigger than it was before. Oh and did I mention that Bas will be joined by Morgan Wade, Corey Bohan, Tom Dugan, Hucker, Ruben, Roey, and more this time around. This shit is going to be nuts! I can’t wait to see what Morgan does on this thing!
I got a pretty long work day ahead of me and won’t be around until later this evening. Figured I’d re-up this good good from Fit to hold you over until I’m back on my interweb game.
Tom Dugan may get top billing on other sites, but not around here! Fit sent BRIAN, Tom, and Stew Johnson off to Malaga to meet up with Ruben and check out the abundant spots around the city he calls home. There’s a whole lot of park footage but luckily for us they hit up at trail jam and that crazy dirt quarter that Ruben built. I was totally down to watch those dudes flow around some parks, but you can jump ahead to 03:56 if you want to get straight to the jam and quarter.
Remember Fuel TV? It was that network that once played cool shit like this before it went all UFC and then all belly up. I remember when this came out being so psyched that Posh (oops I mean “Secret Trails”) was on TV. Now the question I pose to you is this. Would you call out Ruben for skidding up a lip?
It’s about time that this dropped! Pics and the teaser vid have been floating around for weeks now. I was starting to think that I had somehow missed the actual video. Seeing Baz hit this thing would have been incredible by itself but they spiced things up with a clip of Ruben taking it on!
