Faster, heavier and way more slayer. The best of Dylan Warren’s Summer Clip compressed in 4 minutes of flipping, sliding and slashing. GET READY FOR IT!
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!
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.
The European Cup is a 5 event mountainboard series, taking place in France, Russia, Belgium and Germany. Last weekend the European Cup stopped in Moscow for second freestyle event of the season. Alexey Tunetz was kind enough to share some details and a few of his photos from this stop.
