Another year of X Games, another year of shitty TV dirt coverage. Luckily Ride was in the stands filming the whole thing, so we can kind of fill in the blanks that the TV broadcast left out.
I’ll just leave this video from the good folks at X Games here in case you need a scientific explanation of how riding dirt works. The X Games player is funky so you’ll need to click into the post to see the video.
With X Games just a couple of weeks away, we can expect a barrage of X Games related content to drop leading up to it. The first to have any relevance to us a around here is this piece that Stew Johnson put together on the D-Man, Chris Doyle. Chris recounts his memories of the… Continue reading Remembering X with Chris Doyle
We all knew that Clint Reynolds was number one, but he’s finally getting that recognition from people outside of the trails scene; first with a NORA award, and now with an official decree from xgames.com.

With X Games coming up in just a few days you best believe that they’re going to start cranking out a bunch of media leading up to it. This piece with Anthony Napolitan caught my interest because it’s basically a bunch of footage from Wetlands and FOD with him talking about some memorable X Games… Continue reading X Games Preview with Anthony Napolitan
So X Games Dirt has made its triumphant return to US Soil. Dave King was in charge of building the course and I think he came up with a pretty good one. If you didn’t land decent on the second to last set you were pretty much ass out for the last one. There was… Continue reading X Games Dirt Highlights
I had the pleasure of meeting and riding with Chase way back in 2001 while he was on the Props road trip that they talk about in here. It was pretty damn obvious back then that once he grew into his bike he was going to be one of the best riders to ever touch… Continue reading Through the Years with Chase Hawk
Chris Childs posted on his Instagram that he got an invitation to X Games dirt in Austin. This was exciting enough but then I noticed that Doyle and Corey Bohan were also on the list. Looks like I’ll actually watch the X Games this year. I need to somehow get up on that judging panel!
