Super Sweet Dirt Jump Edit: I Street w/ Carston Oliver

July 11th, 2013 by

Photog/Filmer duo Jonathan Cracroft and Timothy Jones set out to film some dope dirt jumping at SLC’s classic jump area I Street earlier this year. To make the edit pop they needed a rider that had both the skills and the work ethic to session the a line relentlessly. Lucky for them they were able to wrangle my favorite all mountain athlete Carston Oliver into the mix. If you dont know Carston you will someday. He is the best under the radar skier on the planet in my opinion and allegedly just as good on a bike. Check this out!

John’s words:

Despite being an unofficial bike park, Salt Lake City’s I-Street jumps have been around for over 18 years and are well known by locals and visitors alike. Over the years it has grown into a maze of lines that has something for everyone, from beginners to pros. “The Long Line” or “Buckaroo” doesn’t have the biggest jumps or gnarliest features, but at 21 jumps long it is definitely the best bang for your buck. In this video, we follow local rider Carston Oliver on a trip down the Long Line.

Here is another angle of Cam Zink  throwing a massive backflip in Virgin. Is it the biggest ever? I am not sure, but it is really rad!

Elliot Davis is a frequent contributor to Unofficial Networks and when he sent me his buddy Daniel Riley’s bike edit from last season I was sure it would be pretty damn good. A great mix of dirt jumping, trail riding, bike pushing and Fall foliage tossed with a heavy dose of Dub-step make this one worth 5 minutes of your work day. If you ride a lot in Utah you will recognize most of these features and it will get you pumped for next month when everything is all melted out. I want to check out this RC helicopter cam they have! Nice work guys!

Elliot’s Words:

My friend Daniel Riley who will be a senior next year at Park City High School has a high quality media production company called Stratus Productions. He films a lot of dirt jumping and dh which is why he just posted his 2012 biking edit. It features shots of I-street, Park City Dirt Jumps, Canyons, and some local Park City freeride trails. The riding is on par but the production value is amazing. And yes, some of those incredible shots are filmed with a RC helicopter.

Insane Bike Video | Massive Death Exposure

I know it is Winter, but there is no good snow in Utah right now for me to make a worthwhile video for you. Fortunately, I came across this video of some crazy f*&king guys riding the nuttiest single track/hiking trail I have ever seen. I am thinking Nepal or India is the location. If anyone knows where this is let me know. It reminds me of new Unofficial Networks writer/King of POV Andrew Whiteford’s bike edit from Southern Utah, except 4.57 times gnarlier. What do you think A-Dub? Wanna shred this one?

The edit is a little long and slow paced, but the exposure here earns these guys the big balls award of the day in my book. The gnar starts at 0:22 and is pretty continuous from there.

Wasatch Crest Trail: Good to Go

July 23rd, 2011 by

There were some casual bets thrown around last month as to when the Wasatch Crest trail would be ridable this year. Many people thought it would be at least August. Those folks, myself included, were wrong. The Crest is in Super Prime condition right now! So stop making excuses and get on up there this holiday weekend. (For all non Utah readers this next Monday is a made up holiday here called Pioneer Day.)
