I can’t even believe that this edit is six years old already! Time sure does fly, luckily Mark’s riding is timeless. Shot and cut by Tom Arkus for Deluxe.
Just in case this weekend’s weather has got you down, here’s a little pick-me-up courtesy of the fine folks at Back Bone!
What a pleasure it was to wake up this morning and the first thing that I see is that the crown jewel of The Backbone Video is finally online. Watch it, get stoked, tell your boss you can’t make it in today, and then go lay some tracks down somewhere!
This Skapegoat 10 mixtape from Animal is the last place in the world I would have thought of to look for a bunch of trail footage, but lo and behold there’s a real SOLID Eastside section at the end. 13:30 is the magic number to skip to!
Here’s some fly over shots of the 5 Crew Trails in Hungary. I can’t watch this and not think about that Drone Boning video that was making the internet rounds yesterday. You know god damn well that if Popple had a drone that is exactly what he’d be using it for!
Back in August Troy Zeigler came through with a rocking edit from the Heathens Jam. Here’s a bunch of raw footage that made it into that edit and some that didn’t. No music here, just cassettes, the crowd, and Tommy T on the mic.
Whoa, a DIY resi made of mattresses. Word has it that Popple is already working on building one.
Troy Zeigler of Elevated Visuals came through with this rocking edit from the Heathens Mountain Jam. I can’t get over the insanity of what when down there. The mix of trails style and X-Games maneuvers is not what you usually see at most jams these days. That’s what you get when you have a set of amazing trails within a stones throw of Woodward! Spotted on The Union
I said I hoped for more footage from the Heathens Jam in the last post, and oh boy did I receive. ESPN dropped this doozy of an edit from none other than Stew Johnson himself. Stew, you did an excellent job making me really regret not being at this one!
Ah, the roller coaster that is Hazelwood! Protoz shot these POV runs last summer, so you know that things are even nutty now. Hold on as he follows Popple, Tom, and Yeagle through three of the runs.
