FEST Series continues to blow us away... again, and again and again. Who will send that MASSIVE 90-foot step down first? - Fred

Published July 31, 2015 // LooseFEST takes place in Belgium at the 'Ferme Libert' bikepark. It has the biggest FEST jumps ranging from 65 to 80 foot. This year Nico Vink built a 90 foot step down following the existing jumps of last year. It's huge, it's massive and after the first session only Andreu Lacondeguy and Gilles Dejong hit it... on their MOTOS.

Added a new video Ali C Tearing Up the Streets of Cardiff 7/31/2015 1:38 PM

Insane precision, bike handling and cojones in this edit from Trials rider Ali C. - Fred If you filmed your last video in sun-drenched Barcelona, where would you go to top that? Apparently, the answer to that is Cardiff. After going to Tarty Days, Ali decided to cruise over the Severn Bridge to scope out some new spots in Cardiff. Filmed over a week and a half in between gales and showers, this shows some of the riding on offer in Wales' capital city. Special thanks go out to John Bailey!

For your budget, I'd look for a used bike that's a few seasons old. You'll likely get more bang for your buck. Start looking locally, so you can check the bike out in person before purchasing.

Short cage with a 1x setup on the V10 will be fine, just make sure to mind your chain length when you cut the chain (as you would with any bike).

Flip your bars and grab your muffler, it's bobsled time. - Fred

K!LL H!LL / ,zam I LEG ALL

Various buildings made of concrete were on the increase in the Czech Republic during the era of communism. That’s why a skeleton track was built near the little town Klasterec nad Ohri in the Ore mountains. The track is 1007m long and has 8 curves and 2 long straights, built in 1975.

After the Velvet revolution in 1989 the track has become overgrown with a forest cover. The color of concrete has turned moss green. Some bumps and damaged parts hasn’t withstood the ravages of time. Nowadays the track is being preserved for a Czech Olympian and his summer luge training. However, it is also a drug addicts’ meeting spot and local weirdos like rambling around neighboring forests, which is the place where no one wants to stay overnight. When we saw this spot for the first time it seemed crazy, just…K!LL H!LL

The track was discovered by a photographer Mila S. while doing a nude photo shoot and he made us think about breathing life into this place, at least for a while…

Zam I Leg All focuses on natural spots transformed by humans.

At 5'9 you're more than likely a med, unless you like really big bikes.
