Odyssey held one hell of a jam in Austin called Texas Toast. This is the best event I have ever seen, ever. I will do anything I can to attend it next year. Dirt jumping is the best ever; obstacle riding is the second best. Check out a TON of great riders going crazy on this crazy course and even see Mike Aitken go through the trails first try, no run-up.
Speaking of Aitken shredding again, TJ Lavin, after his career-threatening injury, has decided to enforce full-face helmets at his backyard trails. This is cool, but I would personally enforce full-face and certified half-cut helmets, meaning no bucky lasek classics unfortunately. Full-faces are great, but they restrict sight and for some they throw off balance.
The original Give D! kids get their ride on at the infamous ditches of San Diego. This is pretty much Odyssey's R&D tester group because these guys go hard in the paint but this video is more chill. I won't complain whenever I can see the guys together again though.
