We headed out to a few spots in town during the morning to film a few things we had planned out on the first day, most of which went to plan. We then headed to a park called Poco (Railside) which was a big park packed full of good transition and plaza style jibs so everyone was happy. Brandon was really letting loose in the bowl (The table photo below is a transfer from the very far left vert wall into the right side of the bowl) along with Nathan and Victor coming through with some good clips as well. Victor really went in on one of his lines.
With about an hour of daylight left we then hit up a backyard set-up which was a really cool spot and good use of the area. All the guys were enjoying the session which went on until it was dark. Backyard ramps are always a treat so thanks to the locals for letting us have a roll.
Demolition Parts has been updating from the road with some rad photos of the dudes camping and hitting some concrete in Colorado…
Our bmx road trip to CO has been one for the books already and we’re only midway through. The guys have been stacking clips for the video and have been getting a ton of solid photos in the process too. We’ve also been bonding quite a bit while sitting around the campfire and have been learning that much more about one another. Tyler being the youngest one of the group is always “trying” to get in trouble, Dennis is a f-n machine on his bike and helps our young Tyler get into trouble by egging him on for anything that comes to Tyler’s head, Connor is now known as K-Rob due to his vigorous workouts and his Muscle Milk intake, Kris is just as smooth off his bike as he is on it, Cordova has been going so high on everything he hits at the parks, one has to wonder how the hell he does it, Doyle is the older seasoned vet that Tyler says his Mom is about the same age as him, and Rob is the mountaineer of the group that can whittle a knife out of a twig to kill his own food. The guys also rode their asses off yesterday and got some amazing new action shots. Hit it to see em all.
The sun was out today so we headed to Parkgate park which turned into a pretty long session with the guys as the bowl had some lines that needed to be attempted. Not all went to plan but we got some good clips and headed onto the next park.
I have no idea what the park was called but it was an old school snake run that was pretty crazy and Nathan was hyped on it from the get go. We got in a few runs there before finishing up the day at an amazing watering hole that Brandon took us to, it was a nice way to end the day.
First riding spots of our camping trip and the guys went all in at Boulder and Sandstone parks. Weather here has been amazing and everyone is stoked to always have a pond/creek/ river nearby all the parks to jump into to always stay cool. With such a stacked crew on this trip, it’s hard to find just a few riding shots for the blog update but we’ll save the better ones for wallpapers later on too. Hit that more button to see all the riding shots and then some…
VitalBMX just recently sat down with Dennis to talk all about Markit, the beginnings, the struggles, and the future of Markit. As you know, we’ve done a lot with and continue to work with Dennis and Markit, so we’re stoked to see this. Give it a watch to answer all the questions you’ve ever had about Markit.
Yesterday was the 10th year of the Canadian Concrete contest so we spent the day at that and although the weather wasn’t on our side in the morning it did clear up to perfect riding conditions which in turn created an awesome event! A good amount of people came out to ride and watch the sessions which really did heat up when we got to the PRO class along with the high air contest and best trick. Both Victor and Nathan made it to the finals and Victor ended up coming out on top but it couldn’t have been any closer between placings.
Massive thanks to Blaise and everyone that made the day a success.
We ended up hitting Horse Shoe Bay park again that evening which was a good time where Brandon even got back on the bike with his finger still pretty average but you wouldn’t know it from his riding.
Build your own fun, build your own reality, build your own dreams…
What you stop asking “what can I get from BMX?”, and start asking, “What can I do to make it better?” thats when it gets real!
When you build something yourself, or with your friends, you get to enjoy it, share it, and really find value in the time spent, the effort, and the shared experience. It helps make it awesome!
