So a lot of you might be anti MTB and that fair enough, but before you skip past this edit you need to check out my friend Jimmy Pratt riding at his local trails. There aren’t many tricks in this but there doesn’t need to be. Hes one of the smoothest riders i know. Props do Ben for making it, its been a long time coming!
A cool POV angle of Wisley trails. Footage shows both lines from the Top of the Main Line into the Jam Line, and then through the whole Main Line.
Here is a video of the different lines at the Wisley trails, one of UK’s finest. This session was back in August one week before their annual jam, so the jumps were in prestine condition. Thanks go out to Digs and the rest of the locals for showing us a great time. The last clip is of Jeremy Ball and Jimmy Pratt rippin!!
Ok, so this isn’t a BMXer but seriously, you cant look at this photo and not be impressed with the amount of work that has gone into this burm. Ben Mark took this photo of Jimmy from Leatherhead cruising round his trails in Surrey. There is a full edit of Jimmy coming out soon filmed by Ben. Click the picture or here to see the picture in all its glory!
I’ve been a bit slack on the photo front this year, time constraints mixed with equipment problems combined with a lack of money means it’s been hard to find the motivation. Also I can’t stand sitting in front of a computer when there’s more interesting things to be done. Anyhow, there’s been some good riding going on down wisley this year, when its been dry at least, so here’s some shots I’ve taken between may and now. Hopefully I’ll be a bit more on it now the gear problems are sorted. We shall see…
Its Sunday so what better then to watch some oldschool bmx. BarEnd are some trails in Winchester, Hampshire. They have been around for along time, a lot of work has gone into these, dug from chalky soil. This is the third barendbmx.co.uk video was released 2006.
Just checking out a couple of websites and came across some pictures of Jimmy’s Trails. Hes built this insane berm at the end that goes over vert, it looks awesome. hit the link below for more snaps.
Digs pointed me in the direction of this, I’m glad he did!
Good sessions still going on down the trails even though it’s getting a little chilly. The leaves are going a real rad colour, I like this time of year…
My updates are like buses, you wait ages for one for one, then two turn up at once, most likely on fire and full of drunk old people. I’ve never been too sure about shooting black and white on digi slrs, feels like a bit of a cheat, but hey, got bored so gave it a go. Also gave the camera to Digs for a bit so there’s the first photos of me in god knows how long.
As you may or may not know we’ve been building a pump track up Wisley while it’s been raining over the last few weeks. It’s pretty rad, and has this sweet hip in it that you can see in the photos below. Also went out for a street sesh with Dave Jake and Roscoe the other day so there’s some photos from that too. I’ve saved a few choice one to stick up on my site as well so check that out.
Don’t forget KOD this Sunday! Salt Club will be in full effect if people dont show!
