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!
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 I was able to knock that out in just a couple of hours. What kicked my ass was putting those ten into any kind of order. Rather than putting that list out right away, I decided to marinate on it a bit and take a week to think the list over and make revisions as I felt necessary. So here we are today and I’m ready to present you “MY” list of the 10 best trails edits to drop in 2014. Feel free to agree, disagree, tell me I’m retarded, or whatever else in the comments. Hit the jump button for my picks!
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.
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.
