Finally! After such an amazing event held in Canberra a few weeks back by the Backbone BMX guys, it’s great to see their footage of the event come to light. It’s 9 minutes long but they’ve captured some of the best riding done at each stop of the jam and it’s simply amazing! Click play and when your done check out the two photo features by Cooper Brownlee & Scott Greentreehere and here!
It’s been a little while since United have had a trails frame (2010 apparently), so the Trails Riders United has obviously been in the works for some time. Canberran trails lord Tyson Jones-Peni had a lot of input in regards to a number of features on the TRU, so it’s only fitting that he should be the one to introduce it. In this piece, put together by Jack Birtles, Tyson roasts his spot; Hillfire, and touches on his love for trails, and where the motivation to spend weeks on the shovel rather than on the bike. Check out a full rundown of Tyson’s rig here, too.
Personally I’ve been patiently waiting for this one to drop from Diamond Creek local and complete park killer -Taylor Ramsdale. For his latest video for Fox, Taylor throws down crazy Alex Hiam inspired whip lash combinations, double and triple whips and even goes upside down a few times for good measure all across Melbourne. You’ll definitely be seeing a lot more from Taylor in the years to come, guaranteed!
I know the locals have been trying to get a new park in Portland for years now and it seems in a few months that dream will finally come true. Design looks pretty good so keep an eye out for this later in the year…
