Jakob just upped his Epic edit full of clips from a lot of the pro dudes that showed last month. This event went off and the turnout was pretty solid. Good stuff in the mix including a few things we haven’t seen yet. Crook down the rail was nasty no matter how many times you see it.
This is some pretty epic shit right here. No pun intended. Zane put together this piece on one of the sickest fixed comps to go do yet. Right in my backyard, the Epic comp took place last weekend and went off. Dudes from everywhere made their way to Northern California for what turned out to be a damn good comp. I got to judge the event being one of the hosts so it was rad just hanging out with people and cruising the park. This bit below right here is definitely the best coverage from the event there will ever be. At about 10 minutes it has a bit of everything in it from the drive up to the day at the comp and a bunch of extras. SO on point. In fact this is getting the plug on Hypebeast which is good for all this. Props to Zane, the so cal dudes and everyone else that came out and helped make this happen…especially Derek Salvador. Pretty hyped that this is going to be an annual event. I know I’d fail some video song quizzes for sureeee.
Spaced out these Epic Comp edits a bit for yall but here’s another from 209 Cogs. I kind of dig these crew edits from events…give you a perspective from just these dudes day at the event. Much better than seeing the same edit from different angles from everyone who had a camera in hand. Dig this.
This bit from Alec Sluser has a bunch of bails and extras some of which are from Epic last week. Bothby’s fall from the comp is in there and man does it look just as brutal as it did day of. Spotted this one on TTv.
Here’s another video from the Epic comp from the kids at 5ONIT. A couple things in this one that weren’t in that FF bit are Alex’s pedal feeb 180 and JD’s 180 tuck no down the 8 that I know I lost my shit over. Lots of other good shots in the mix as well. Check it.
Yesterday’s Epic comp was way sick and I’m stoked for it to become a yearly event. Everyone who came out threw down from AMs to Pro. Intermediate kids were all going hard with bars over rails and threes down gaps. The finals for Pro ended up being filled up by Gnarlos, JD, Milner, Santos and Jball for an entertaining finish. I spent the day judging with Gus and Montoya with us naming Jball the winner. Dude came out of the gate hard with stuff like truckdrivers over the hip and bars into pedal feebs. JDs 180 tuck no down the 8 was nuts. Milner was consistent as hell. Boothby and Jakob were killing the rails. In AM Francis took first with stuff like tire grab threes. A little sesh at Mather in the freezing cold followed by some brews back at the Nem Pro spot made for a pretty solid event. Since I was one of the hosts of this and judging I got next to no photos but the few I was able to grab are below…also didn’t have a flash since I wasn’t planning on taking flicks ha. Click through for a solid event video with a bunch of the bangers from Fixie Famous.
Can’t wait for this tomorrow. A ton of dudes heading from all over for this so you know its going to be good. I’ll bencrusing around covering the event…and yet again judging ha. Hopefully some dudes will be in town tonight to cruise and get wild. Here’s that Sesha de Park from Epic to get you in vibin for tomorrow. See everyone thennn.
Just wanted to get this shot up from last night at Epic. Was stoked to get to ride with a bunch of people up this way. Northern California fixed gear is alive. I believe Derek’s girl shot this.
I was supposed to be at EPiC for this! Alas I had no means to get there. I’ll ride my damn bike there next time if I have to.
shots. Sort of an “impending doom” feel to them. And that Chris Clappe snap is just gnar.
