Loving these behind the scenes raws from the Last Try video. FOAD has some of my favorite personalities by far. Also riding those rocks looked extremely unforgiving.

FOAD just dropped this sweet little bike check showing off Skrt’s new Courttek build. Chase shreds, he’s hilarious, and his build is super proper.
FOAD: LAST TRY OUT NOW
The moment the whole community has been waiting for is here, FOAD’s new full length movie Last Try is now available on Youtube for everyone’s viewing pleasure! After the massive success of their 2nd full length film: The Good Times Are Killing Me, it would have been hard to follow by any means. Jackson, in my opinion, surpassed all expectations and managed to create yet another instant classic for the community. Here’s what Jackson had to say about it:
““Last Try” is FOAD’s third and final full-length feature. Following the release of “The Good Times Are Killing Me” in 2016, this new film has been in the making for over 3 years. “Last Try” is a movie about people, places, and wheels. Features the familiar cast of FOAD riding fixed gear bikes in unusual ways: whether it be fixed gear freestyle, traffic, or through the unfamiliar of snow and dirt on tracklocross bikes. Recently, the members of FOAD have started to grow up, embracing derailleurs, brakes, and even suspension. The film documents the progression into mountain biking, and while the bikes may be different, the passion is the same. The film also explores other interests such as BMX and rollerblading. FOAD was born from fixed gear freestyle, and true to the fixed gear roots of FOAD, the film features bicycle riders from across the globe. From Colombia to France, the film documents the riders do show off their unique style with skids, wheelies, and tricks. It’s been 13 years since Macaframa, and even more since MASH SF, this next generation of riders continues to push the limits.”
Incredible work all around. Such a feel good video with nearly every realm of bikes and locations represented in some form. I’ve already watched it 3 times since it released. SUPPORT FOAD HERE FOR ALL THE FREE CONTENT THEY PROVIDE US

Chase Davis Edit Extras
FOAD just dropped the b roll from Chase’s recent edit, you love to see the work that goes in!
MUST WATCH – CHASE DAVIS 2022 EDIT
YOU LOVE TO SEE IT. I’ve been preaching for a while that the web edit is dead. Well lucky for us, FOAD Gang is here to save us from an eternity of Instagram reels. Chase is one of my favorite riders, period. This edit really highlights why: smooth AF riding, creative lines, some big stuff mixed in too. So damn good. Personal favorites are the roof 360 at :48, scary barspin at 2:30, line at 3:12 (that X-Up looked so cool), and that feeble bar ender was a thing of beauty.
If you ride FGFS bikes, take after Chase’s lead and MAKE A WEB EDIT, because we need more! (No matter your skill level)

FOAD | STORM RIDER COMMENTARY
Chase and Jackson with FOAD Gang give us some entertaining insight on the Riders on the Storm video they released recently. Enjoyed this a lot!
FOAD GANG | RIDERS ON THE STORM
The FOAD boys got a once in a lifetime opportunity to shred some damage from some super gnarly windstorms out in good ol’ Salt Lake. An unfortunate event for many turned into some very unique shred for the gang. Really enjoyed this edit as a whole. Good quality filming and editing as always and some really great spot usage from everybody. Really enjoyed the bounce tricks near the 2:40 mark and all of Chase’s tricks were crispier than ever. He’s really blossoming into one of my favorite riders overall. Great shred from everyone, don’t miss this!
