Tasting The Dirt – Burke Bike Park, Burke, VT

Mason Moore and Evan Carlson at Burke Bike Park

There are few places on this earth that I would rather ride than the rolling grass hills of northeastern Vermont. I’m going to come right out and say I’m biased because this is where I’m from, but even still, most people who have visited can instantly appreciate it’s allure. Something about the lush green the landscape, the cool summer breeze, the twisting dusty dirt roads through the shallow valleys, all make it a very cozy & comfortable destination.

Back in August Mason Moore made a trip out to the east coast to help put on a learn to ride at the annual Bike & Brew Festival at Burke Mountain. After a savage night in NYC, we took the 6 hour drive to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and immediately got to riding. Staying par for the course with the Tasting The Dirt series, here is some raw footage from the always epic Burke Bike Park & a few other spots around the Kingdom.


Tour Lyfe – Episode 7, Part 1 – Colorado, USA

Brandon-Johanns-Jason-lee

So after a few months in Europe, Radface made his way to the United States. While staying with me in Denver, Colorado, Dylan ate all my food, drank all my beer and broke my couch and we occasionally rode. On one of those occasions we went down to Rampart Range where we met up with the rest of the crew, havoc ensued.


Tasting The Dirt – Cedar Ledge, PA

Carnage-Cedar-Ledge-PA-mountainboarding

Deep in central Pennsylvania, in a land where fracking is the big industry and cell phone service doesn’t exist, lies the best mountainboard course in the United States. Nestled on the hill behind his thriving apple orchard is Curtis Kelly’s escape, the endless terrain that he and a few other locals have been sculpting for over a decade. Every where you look there is a line, and with a few friends & the will you can ride anything. One of the first lines conceived at Cedar Ledge was by the late Jon Sever who was a local to the park for many years.

This past weekend we returned to the orchard for a few days of earned turns, cliff jumping & another segment of Tasting The Dirt!

Tasting The Dirt – Frisco Bike Park

Benton-Jackson-Frisco-Colorado

A few years back the town of Frisco, nestled high in the Rocky Mountains a mountainbike park was constructed for the public. At the time it was far from perfect, the jumps were just big rollers, the berms weren’t steep enough and speed was impossible to carry. They’ve since vastly improved upon the park and Benton Jackson and I had the pleasure of sharing a few runs together through it. This is the first episode of a new series(it might be a one episode series) i’m calling Tasting The Dirt, raw footage from the parks.


Dylan Warren Summer Clip

The long awaited and highly anticipated part by Dylan Warren is finally here. There is way to much to say about this video, but first and foremost DYLAN is gnarly. Rails, rooftop and cliff drops this clip shows how a mountainboard needs to be ridden.

Thanks for all the hard work Dylan, your efforts for our entertainment and I’m thoroughly entertained!


Tour Lyfe – Episode 6 – Winterburg, Germany

tour lyfe winterberg germany

This episode is for all the beautiful ladies out there(queue the crickets) who like pretty boys who mountainboard. In this episode more than half of the guys ride without shirts and rocking short shorts and it’s fucking gnarly. Winterberg is consistently building jumps and drops that are pushing the limits of mountainboarding, check out the old Winterberg gap footage here if you don’t believe me. So i’m not surprised that fellas went there and absolutely destroyed the place.

Adieu.

Interview with Dylan “Radface” Warren

Summer Clip Pentagram - Dylan Warren

I just want to start out by saying this took 2 months to put together, and it should have taken 45 minutes. The first attempt to do this interview with Dylan was foiled by my laptop battery running out of juice halfway through the interview. The second attempt had some viscous background noise that I didn’t hear until I started editing it. Then this version the audio was super quiet, so note for anyone planning to record a Google Hangout, make sure to test the audio or get microphones.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, here is a little interview with the Aussie Dylan Warren. Over the past 3 years he has sought out the endless summer, travelling between hemispheres with his mountainboard in tow to ride what ever the world puts in front of him. He’s got great style on and off his board and doesn’t give two fucks what you think. In the next 2 weeks he will be dropping his new video part “Summer Clip” and it will not disappoint. Dylan is the man, I’m jealous of the lifestyle he has been living, you should be too!
