bumVSmtn- contemplating a race season...

bum VS apocalypse PART III

watching this thing in the air is horrifying, about as graceful as a pig flying.

almost as horrifying as watching the rear wheel flex through the berm slash.

pure dh video featuring a sam hill fanboy:


co-built, ridden, self-filmed, and edited by a guy named kelend:

bumVSmtn- that's some pretty big shit to be hitting by yourself in the woods.


slick editing and solid riding makes this video a winner (mtb dj warning):

bum VS apocalypse PART II

we regret to inform you that intense has created a 29er DH bike.

flatbar- hmm, why would you need a flatbar on a 29" DH bike?

or to drop the dorado to 7", for that matter?

29er MTX's- get out!

you fancy-type niner boys should be smooth enough to ride tiny rims 4evers.

we may need to start a public shame spin-off blog once this abomination and the lenz go public, a la 'hot chicks with douchebags."

i would expect this sort of thing from tony ellsworth, but c'mon steber!

don't try and tell me that this is going to do for the sport what the m1 did for dh racing back in the 90's.

i'll believe it when palmer shows up to a national on one.

what a waste of resources.

stund VS the mtb film industry PART I

crosstoberfest- sat & sun @ river run

there's going to be a 20min 'd' race with a best costume contest.

bumVSmtn will not be racing this year, but will be sideline, heckling everyone for any reason.

some media from last year's adventure:

bum VS claim

i had a brainchild!

from sunvalleyonline:

Ketchum Parks & Recreation received more support from City Hall today for the construction and completion of its world class Bike Park.

Mayor Randy Hall and city administrator Gary Marks joined parks & recreation director Kirk Mason and staff for a tour of the construction site at 7th Street and Second Avenue in West Ketchum led by Judd DeVall of Alpine Bike Parks, a Colorado-based design firm. The parks anticipated completion to a ride-able state is sometime next week and a grand opening celebration is scheduled for Monday, November 2.

A grand opening for the Blaine County Recreation Districts bike park, also designed and constructed by Alpine Bike Parks is set for today at 5pm. The Hailey park is located on Fox Acres Road just west of the Aquatic Center.

The brainchild of Ketchum resident Julian Tyo, the Ketchum Bike Park has seen its share of community involvement. The Blaine County School District gave the city permission to build the park on school district land and Scott USA offered to pay for Alpine Bike Parks professional touch. Without the incredible support of the community and the recognition of this parks importance by city leaders, this quite simply would not have happened, said parks superintendent Jen Smith.

bumVSmtn- claimin' it.

bum VS alpine

brendan semenuk teaser from nwd10, 'top secret location, bc:"

i have my theories as to where this is, but i'll keep them to myself.

the coastal crew, out of the sunshine coast, recently experienced some alpine, and put together this slideshow of their adventure:

Coastal Crew Go Alpine from The Coastal Crew on Vimeo.

if i had to guess, i'd say they were in the zone where dave watson's rtth segment was filmed.

powerslave- nelson, bc

riley started painting his alpine masterpiece a couple years ago with the goal of creating a 'showpiece' trail for his hometown of nelson, bc.

this is the best footage i've seen of "powerslave" so far:

mid mountain tuck no handers = mtb.

bumVSmountain typically shies away from mtb dirt jump footage, unless accompanied by on-mountain application of dirt jump skills.
