New additions to the front

Keaton, myself (Noah), and Cody Miller put in more bricks in the front section along the top of the quarter to the left, turning it into more like a bowl. We also started cutting into the launch into the landing of the step up. We will try to get pics posted up soon on the progress but I encourage you to come out and ride next sunny day we got. You know we will be there!

I know this isnt related to the post but I thought it was ridiculous...

Portland premier- Refresh

So I was up in Portland after dropping the spouse and offspring off at the airport and found out from Caleb Rucker that there was a premier of Refresh, the new video from Chase Productions. The video has full parts from the likes of Def Paul,Chris Martindale,Scott Fuller,Shay Scheifelbein,Micheal Chace,Greg Tylosky, and Joseph Pennell.

So, I dropped Amy off at 5:30 at PDX and the video was starting at 6. If you know Portland at all, It was a pretty far drive compared to Corvallis. I made it though, just in time to catch up with a couple heads that I have not seen in a while. It was good to see Dean Dickinson and John Bristol. I also ran into Caleb Quanbeck and Adam Perez. It was really good to see everyone.

As the movie got underway, I was standing outside and a couple other people I had not met before rolled up and I was introduced to a fella named Paul. we talked for a little while and then I come to find out, as we are standing there watching the video, Paul says "this is my part". I had no idea that I was standing there with deaf Paul. I had seen some photo's in magazine's before but didn't recognize him. His section is wild and he is a super nice guy. The video is really good. From Paul murdering double kinked rails and huge gaps to "forgot the guy's name" backwards manuals for days, this is a great perspective of Washington dudes having a great time riding bikes and living the BMX lifestyle. I think you could get the video from Goods. Give Shad a shout and peep it.

Oh, Here is the link to the trailer for the video, and check out some photos from them too.

Trip to Eugene

Alot of riders from corvallis took a trip to eugene to ride with the locals and it was probably one of the most epic days ive had in a long, long time. I dont know if it was the mix of seeing Vetran shredders Josh F, Riley P, and Andy M. AKA boog dawg. ride again all together or what but everyones riding was so good. We filmed the whole trip and are working hard on getting the footage edited so we can post it. The weather was excellent the parks were empty the guys riding threw down. We even rode some street and security was super chill and left us to film Kevin Staninger rippin a wallride to tailwhip off. Keep checking back for the footage! it'll be good. Expect more web edits and road trips over the summer!

Trails update

Keaton and myself [Noah] went to the trails and spent alot of time working on the front section. We got the transfer out of the gopher trail running and its alot of fun to flow through. I was getting sick of waiting for the puddle in front of the quarter to dry up so we dug out the annoying lump that causes water to pool there. So hopefully we wont continue to have that problem. 

we watered and repaired the lips to the hip jump next to the tree and its brother to the right. 
I spent some time making sure the dirt quarter was prime for flairs as soon as the ground drys up. We got hungry and went to taco bell (which was SOOO GOOD!!!) and when we got back some people had shown up to ride. We figured since we were at a good stopping point we would have a quick sesh. Everyone was riding really good and everyone was getting stoked. 

Blake did a ridiculous long nose manual on the walkway which was pretty cool
Keaton and Jimmy = turndowns for days.
I spent most the time taking pics but I wanted a tuck no hander pic so Keaton took one for me. 
I got to jump the gopher trails for the first time and they are a lot of fun. I cant wait for the next sunny day. 

If you are in Albany check them out. A lot of stuff is going to go down this summer and its looking pretty promising for many bbqs and jams and maybe even a small local comp or something? I wanna see just how crazy stuff can get at the trails!

Heres the pics from today hope you enjoy!
P.s. Keep checking back for the up coming BBQ date!

Some Corvallis locals Keaton, Noah, Cody, Michael and their visiting friend Chris, took a day trip to Eugene to ride and met up with local shredders Andy "BOOGDOG", Nate, and Chris A. And got a little filming in. heres what got pumped out.

Area 51 and Gopher trails

Here are some photos from a couple of weeks ago of the trails down in Bryant park in Albany. Noah and Keaton started going out a while back and have been working there buts off at the jumps in front. I also started seeing James and a couple of the Albany locals out there too.It seems like there might be a resurgence of trails this year and I couldn't be more stoked. Going out and digging makes riding seem more rewarding. Hearing about the grotto maybe getting plowed bummed me out but at the same time gave me some motivation to get the trails in the back working this year. It has felt like the big jumps in the back get worked on a little every year but never really get rocking. with the jumps up front looking dialed I hope everyone in the scene gets stoked to ride trails.
