Tom Van Den Bogaard Goes To California

This one requires a ol’ big skip to 04:12 to get to the point in Tom Van Den Bogaard’s trip where he rides the trails at Woodward West. This must have taken place while Danimal was away, because there’s no way in hell he would have let him ride the jumps that dry and with dirt falling out of the lips. Nac to turndown was cool tho!

Tom Justice Cruisin’ Cali

I love Tom Justice’s riding, but man do I sure wish that he rode for a more reputable company. I can’t hate though; you got to take what you can get if you want to try to pay the bills with BMX money.

Trails Tales – Evening Sessions at Woodward West

Every night at 7:30pm Danimal opens up the Woodward West trails and lets the campers, staff and visiting pros have at ’em till dark. It’s pretty cool that anyone from the smallest grom to the craziest pro can get in on and catch the vibes of this highly anticipated daily evening session!

Woodward West – Danimal’s Digging College

Once again, Woodward West is doing things right with their dirt program. On top of having a killer set of trails, they also have Danimal out there teaching the campers what goes into building and keeping those trails going, and how to build trails of their own.

Woodward West – Trails Tales with Mike Saavedra

I’m sure by now you all know that I’m a huge fan of the dirt program they have going on out at Woodward West. Mike Saavedra is one of the main driving forces keeping the trails dialed in and evolving out there. In this video that Woodward West dropped, he talks about some of the new stuff that got added this year and then you get to see some campers putting it to good use. That transfer looks like so much fun!

Brandon Semenuk – Red Bull Raw 100

Man, there are so many good things going on here! First, the resurrection of the old X Games downhill track at Woodward West. Seeing that thing not only dialed back into ridable condition, but with the addition of a few improvements makes me long for that era of racing to come back. Imagine watching eight dudes battle down that thing! That’s something that I would actually tune in to watch. Hell, I’d probably even try to be there for the event! Second, Red Bull’s Raw 100 is a rad conceptual series that puts both the rider and filmmaker in the…

Sebastian Smith – Metamorphosis

I bookmarked Sebastian Smith’s “Metamorphosis” edit a few months ago but it somehow slipped through the cracks of being posted. Don’t let the beginning of the edit fool you, Sebastian gets to shredding those pretty unique trails with the motorhome on & off mid-line!

Santa Cruz Crew at Woodward West

The some of the Santa Cruz crew made their way down to Woodward West for a week of riding those damn fine dirt obstacles they’ve constructed out there. Once again, I’m not sure as to why the dirt game at Woodward West is so much more on point than what they have going on at East. Attn: Woodward East, step your dirt game up!
