BACK TO TRACK JAM RECAP EDIT

Late on posting this here cause I had to hop on a flight this weekend, but here’s our official recap from our Back to Track competition we hosted a couple weekends ago! It was so much fun and I can’t wait to host another next year. Enjoy! Big shoutout to the SMC boys for holding it down on the camera while I ran the event.

BACK TO TRACK RECAP + RESULTS

This past weekend on Saturday we held our highly anticipated BACK TO TRACK trick track competition. It’s the first trick track specific competition that’s happened since around 2009 and it was a major success! To give some info about how the day went, we started at our original spot and people started showing up. It was the PERFECT spot. Basketball court, poles to spin off, and a bank next to it to do tricks on.

Almost immediately, a park official came up and told us we all had to leave. It was a scramble to find a new spot and get everyone there, but we ended up at a park in long beach that worked out perfectly (sign of relief). We had about 50 people total and the energy was great. With the resurgence of Trick Track riding, I think people were excited to have an event specifically for it. We’re gonna be dropping a bunch of photos from the day this week as well as a video recap on our Youtube channel, so keep an eye out for that. If you didn’t make it out, I highly recommend you make it out next year cause it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, rode, and everything in between.

Bike Check | Matt Bastard Master Courttek Prototype

We got a first look at the new beautiful Master Bike Co Courttek trick track frame in the Andy Sparks colorway last week. This week reveals Matt Bastard rocking a new raw and purple colorway reminiscent of the raw and purple Thrasher V1 frames! This thing is looking proper. Purple decals plus the purple components is a great touch, excited to see him shred this thing. Which colorway do you like better so far? A little bird told me there’s one more colorway that hasn’t been revealed yet, so stay tuned for that!

WHEEL TALK | SF Financial Boys

The SF boys are back at it again with some shreddery! Boothbys back and better than ever, stoked to see that. He’s always been one of my favorites to watch on a bike. Andy’s clips on the little grass hill at the end were also fire! Slum is killing it so hard with all the videos he’s been dropping lately. That’s no surprise though. Don’t miss this one.

WHEEL TALK | New Waves, Old Habits

SF brought out a whole ass crew to get out and shred some classic SF spots! Slum and Jake on FGFS bikes makes JBall a happy boi. Snow even got out to shred, been a minute since we’ve seen him! Love the Adam Wells interview too. The shredding in this is just as good as the b roll. I feel like I’m hanging out with all these dudes watching this. Need to get out that way after this Covid stuff is done.

Wheel Talk | Plus Ultra

BRAND NEW WHEEL TALK PRODUCTION coming at you with a GRIP of FGFS heads putting on a clinic for our internet eyes. I think of all the talent in the video though, Ernie stole the show. Also Matt’s track bike 360 with a high seat at 4:25 was really impressive.

High Tide in San Francisco

The latest Wheel Talk production is a banger, per usual. There’s some faces in here that we haven’t seen in a while like Boothby and Silva, really stoked to see that. Santos with some classic launch and wall action. Slum and Matt Bastard supplied the tech that we know and love. Peep!
