Texas Toast has once again come and gone and the dirt jumps this year were probably the best yet. Though the jumps were good, the wind situation was less than ideal. Despite the wind people were killing the course all weekend. The guys from Ride were out there the whole time documenting the action, and you can check out the finals above and the qualifiers below.
I realized something after watching this. You have to be VERY proficient at spinning your bike around to be on Redline’s team!
Mike Farnham fired off some shots during the Texas Toast dirt festivities and as promised here they are in a nice gallery form. Hit the jump button to open up the gallery and make sure you put that sucker in fullscreen!
The Credence Ring the Bell Challenge was the first thing to go down on the dirt jumps here at Texas Toast. It’s a miracle people were going as high as they were considering how slow the jumps were running!
Texas Toast is just a little over two months away and the festivities are starting to get locked in. On top of the usual Texas Toast madness there will be an art show put on by Bell Helmets, Markit will be premiering their Zero video, and Ride’s NORA Cup Awards have made the move from Vegas to Austin. All I can say is that it’s going to be one hell of a weekend! Check out this nifty event guide for more info!
Texas Toast has long since come and gone but the guys at QBP had a bunch of clips from qualifying that they decided to piece together an edit with. I can tell you for sure that I won’t be missing the next one!
Well of course this comes out during the off chance that I’m out on a little street cruise and then the “street” site beats me to the punch. Oh well! I don’t know what those dudes did today but I’m sure it wasn’t as kick ass as roasting some dubs in November in a t-shirt and then cruising around the Nations Capital. Anyway, this was a good end to the season of Wizard of Aus. It follows Corey down to Austin for Texas Toast and gives you a more behind the scenes perspective of it than other edits have.
Ride kicked ass with their coverage of Texas Toast. Make your way on over there and check out the gallery of 45 photos Keith shot of the dirt finals. Obviously the one above is my favorite.
I had heard some rumors that a Brian Foster documentary had been shown down at Texas Toast. Fit put up some more info on it including that it was made by Stew Johnson. No word on when those of us not in attendance of the premier will be able to see it, but I’ll let you know as soon as I find out.
