Berms and rollers. Fun, demanding and hard to master. It is like the difference between skiing and telemarking. If you ski you can be good…but if you telemark…master! Crankworx has some of the best courses and venues to showcase the worlds best. Here is just a couple of pics. Oh and a perfect sunset for the pumptrack finals.
This year was a blast. The list was deep and the riders all dialed. This included a young gun by the name of Finn Iles and extreme sports (hate the term) veteran Travis Pastrana. Not to mention all of the others. Our very own Lucas Chalcraft made a pretty awesome showing with one of the bast whips that I saw through out the show. The American flag was poking out several helmets and waving strong. Here are some of the pics I was able to grab.
Pretty stoked on this guy. He has been learning out at softies and Duthie. Here is a little edit from line Voodoo Child line. The real magic happens at the step up at the 1:07 mark.
Once again G.H.Y. Bikes held a kick ass jump demo. We had Pros and Bros from USA, Canada and even Germany. Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance had a huge event with Plenty of Vendors, music and all around fun. This is the 5th year at the Duthie and this year was definitely the most chill for riders and spectators. Thanks to everyone and go to Evergreen to sign up and become a member.
This was from 2013 BUT….We should and we are going to have a giant fun time. What the hell does that mean…you ask. Spring Bermsled Party / timed runs! So get your lazy butt out and buy a tent. You are going to be so slayed that you are gong to need to sleep all the fun off in the woods. So that’s whats up!
Well this is the guy who put the airwalk in backflip. The man who flipped for the movie “RAD”. He just ended a weekend at woodward west and did a frontflip! It might have been into foam but RAD was made in 1986. You do the math and I bet you are not as crazy or rad at his age. We all only hope.
Old Mountain Dew commercial vs. New Mountain Dew commercial. Both have their merrits but I just really like pounding a mountain dew and hucking myself off some huge cliff. Well maybe not but it goes well with Panda Express and a fortune cookie at Interbike.
Big big big big…Jumps. Video game tricks. Just jumping these behemoth jumps would be enough for me. But then I am sure that with that much time in the air a few tricks would be a must.
When this film hits. Watch out. Might be a game changer coming down the pipes.
Pietermaritzburg – April 12, 2014 – After much anticipation, the 2014 season got underway last week under sunny skies and blazing heat for an exciting race in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Home of the 2013 World Championships, the course saw a few changes for 2014 to add more technicality for the riders. Awkward man made rock gardens, blown out dry soil, big jumps, 60+Km/h speeds, and a huge pedaling effort proved to be a challenging race course for everyone.
There is much more…so click on the entire story.
