Racing Dudes, Nate Hills Yeti Build, Raw BMX & Throwbacks
YT Introduce Team Racing Dudes
Team who? Does the name David Trummer ring any bells? Trummer has been on fire at this season's World Cup and qualified fifth on the brutal Vallnord track just last weekend (he went on to finish seventh). He's part of this new team alongside Erik Irmisch and Johann Potgieter, who have been racing as Team Racing Dudes for the last five years. This year they extended their team to incorporate Trummer and it looks to be paying off for all involved.
Kick back and watch the guys ripping a variety of terrain on their YT Tues 29 bikes.
Nate Hills' Laugh Out Loud Yeti SB100 Bike Build
Heaps of people know of Nate Hills thanks to his #followcamfriday videos. They're not as prominent as they once were, probably because this whole "YouTuber" thing blew up since he first started. But Nate's still doing them as well as other entertaining pieces like this build video. Normally I get bored of the bike build videos with exception to a few—like Gee Milner's quality pieces—but when you throw in Nate's humour and approach, things get interesting.
I didn't think I would make it through all of this but Nate kept doing shit that made me laugh. It left me wanting to see what he was going to do next—17 minutes later…
Corey Walsh RAW 100 BMX
With so much focus on mountain biking around Vancouver, it's pretty easy to forget the quality concrete skateparks that litter the area. BMX remains strong on the west coast and Corey Walsh demonstrates by handing it to a number of the staple parks in the area. Watch for is pocket air nac in the vert Squamish bowl—it's insane. Throw Rupert Walker in with his RAW 100 skills and you're in for a treat.
Throwing it Back With Sam Hill in Quebec (Earthed 5)
Rumours are circling around the topic of Sam Hill and Mont Sainte Anne. He's won on the track before, has been seen on the new Nukeproof DH bike and has clarified before that he never said he would not race DH again. Recently, this old section from Earthed 5 randomly showed up in my feed and it seemed like another sign? I used to watch this section on repeat before going for a ride so I really enjoyed the walk down memory lane.
But the question remains, will Sam return to Quebec for the end of August?
While Throwing It Back, Bas Keep's Walls Project
For those who don't know Sebastian (Bas) Keep, he's a U.K. BMXer who isn't afraid of going large. I stumbled upon his YouTube channel this week and it reminded me of his "Red Bull Walls" project from a few years ago. Apparently Bas is working on something new that is going to be just as gnarly but it made for a perfect revisit of this insane video. If you haven't seen it already, this is a must watch. If you have, you'll enjoy watching it again, promise.
We set out to put tyre prints where no one would dream of riding a bike – Bas Keep
