And here we have the Urkatu section from Compression’s Septembre DVD. Coming across this today is what tipped me off that I had missed the previous section. Anyway, it always tripped me out that they had a full on legitimate resi landing at Urkatu! Don’t think I’m hatin’, I would stunt the hell out of that thing!
The guys from Went BMX must have been feeling nostalgic about the summer they had riding some of the most iconic trails around Europe back in 2014, because they decided to have a look back at footage and mash it up into this new edit!
We’re flashing back to the beginning of this decade and to the legendary French trails that are Urkatu. It’s crazy how far the quality of footage has come in just five years or so!
More POV goodness from Dimitris Araouzos! This time featuring runs from this year and last year through some amazing lines at MX, La Source, Ermite, Banos, Urkatu, and more. Keep em coming Dimitris!
Keeping the French trails theme going, here’s an edit from the Corrosion Tour that has a decent bit of Urkatu footage. You’ll have to sit through a decent bit of bowl footy though cause it’s all mixed together.
Here’s the third section from the TwoThousand2013Thirteen DVD featuring three legendary spots, Urkatu, Burck, and Bush. Things are starting to get rolling now!
Here’s another one from our friends over at GetaBMX. They took a trails road trip from Barcelona through France and came back with enough footage for a 17 minute EP length video! There are so many rad spots in here, including Urkatu, Abbaretz, that wild dirt bowl from THIS edit, and a few that I haven’t even seen before. Oh yeah, the sport of wheelbarrow freestyle is also born!
Urkatu footage is something that I always appreciate seeing!
This is one hell of a road trip around France! It’s a bit long but it’s worth watching the whole way through. Spots are hit, dubs are roasted, bowls are carved, and lots of good times are had. If you do happen to want to skip through the park stuff then you’ll find the trail parts at the beginning, 04:24, 07:12, and 10:15.
Salvador Fonollá recently made a trip France’s Urkatu Trails with a crew of other Spanish riders and shot a ton of photos from the trip. It’s definitely worth taking a few minutes to check out the gallery over on his flickr!
