Here’s a little stoke to get your weekend started off right! Ryan Lloyd gives you a first hand view of some of the fun stuff to do in Queenstown, New Zealand. Of course that includes Gorge Road, but I was equally excited to see him battling people down that wild gravity cart track. I hate to say it but that might be my first stop if I ever make it to Queenstown!
Here’s one I spotted over on The Union that caught me off guard; a new Ryan Lloyd bike check from Fly. I had absolutely no idea he was doing it for Fly now, but he is through Triple Six Distribution. You can check out his dialed new setup and an interview about what he’s been up to right HERE!
Little Black Bike posted this one up of Ryan Lloyd cruising through a line at Gorge Road. It’s part one of a new eight part series they are doing called “Full Throttle Friday.” Yeah, I know it’s Monday! I’m a bit late on this one. We get lucky with this first video in the series because it’s broken into two parts. You can check out the second one that features Ryan following Dempsey after the jump!
I do love me some Ryan Lloyd! In fact there very well may have been some prepubescent girl-like giggling when I came across this POV edit of him cruising through the Adelaide City Trails.
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…
Here we have yet another United T.RU. (Trail Riders United) frame being tested out in the real world. This one belongs to Tyson Jones-Peni, and it’s a toss up as to whether I like this green or the brown one that Ryan Lloyd is riding better. What are your thoughts?
United’s new trails frame has a name and it’s a clever one. The “Trail Riders United” is made in the USA by FBM and is currently being tested out by a few members of the United Team. Ryan Lloyd owns the one above and you can bet that it will be getting some serious altitude testing with him riding it. United is still making tweaks and getting the frame dialed in, but you can expect it to be available sometime this summer.
I’m not 100% certain but I’m pretty sure this pic that Ryan posted on his Instagram is of one of the prototype trails frames that United is working on. I’m liking how this thing is shaping up! How good does that color look? Reminds me of a color The Take did back in the day.
At the end of last year I put together my list of top 10 edits to hit the web in 2013. Who knows if I’ll do that again this year, but I can pretty much guarantee that Luke Peeters and Ryan Lloyd’s “Aesthetics” edit from United will be on there if I do.
Gorge Road has been getting some love this week. First it was Luke Peeters and Ryan Lloyd’s incredible United edit, and now it’s an equally impressive photo gallery from Vince Perraud (also featuring Luke and Ryan). Check it out over on The Diggest.
