Street Turns 9

As much as I would love to film a bunch of dirt, I don't have any here in the big concrete, steel, and glass jungle. Plus, my Slopestyle/DH bike is out of commission at the moment. It needs a fork, so what better opportunity than this to try and win one right? I found it very, very hard to come up with a turn on pavement that is both unique and creative. This is how it ended up. I hope you like it. I have about six hours of filming brought down to about two minutes, and roughly 36 hours behind the keyboard editing. I really wanted to do something different and eye catching. None of these turns ended up being easy. I also had six other ideas that didn't work at all. Things like the Jack-Knife turn, and the Outsider took a very long time to figure out and pull off. I think the hardest one was the skateboard skid turn. I'm sure everyone at one point or another has hopped their back wheel on one and locked the brake. Next time try getting one to turn. I think that was the hardest one. It took two days of trying it over and over again before it finally came together. My favorite though (most fun) were the concrete berms. They were perfect, and you could go really fast. Curved, and slanted back just like a dirt berm. You just lean into it and ride right around. Well thanks for watching my entry, and Happy New Year everyone!
