Justin Simpson:
Gap to 50/50

We got multiple angles of this monster clip by Justin Simpson in our New Mexico Travel Log. With a ledge blocking a clear view of the rail, it’s a blind run-up until that perfect last minute swoop into it. Justin handled it like a champ and even let out a casual mid-gap pause before unleashing the fury of the dragon. Thou rail has met its slayer, REJOICE!

Here’s Terry Adams’ old bike! Kinda weird to do a bike check on an old bike, but we have been sitting on these photos for a while. This is the Bike Terry rode in Terry and Aaron, The Sequel. ย This was the prototype stuff that we didn’t want to show until it was out, complete with an updated look of The Waltz frame and his new signature Hobby Bar. You can’t get this bike in Purple, but like Terry’s New bike (Bike check coming soon) it is all available in Blacker than Black. Click around the flipbook to check it out!

Chase Hawk:
Pool Invert

One of my favorite clips in our latest ODSY Vision (Team Retreat – Palm Springs MMXII) was Chase Hawk clicking this invert at this abandoned pool. Since it’s one of those clips you can watch over and over again without it ever getting old, it’s the perfect clip to kick off our new TGIF series.

Every Friday we’ll be dropping animated GIFs of some of our favorite clips from our videos. If you guys have any requests, let us know on in the comments or on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
