  1. I think he worked for a different company. Right now there are only a few cirque shows in N.A. that use a trials rider. I'm lucky to be where I'm at.
  2. It's show season again! Currently 50 shows in to a 270 show contract. Here is a video I made by filming a clip or 2 during the morning warm-up. The set is super fun this year.
  3. Another chill ride with the tripod.
  4. Great vibes!
  5. I started having trouble with the BB7s locking up under load and being slow to release. The Zees don't do that, and they modulate way better so I've been doing more noseys.
  6. This video is not for fans of pushing limits and filming bangers. It was made for the art of it. I hope it shows the mood of the place.
  7. Love it man. Your videos really are art. I see the thought you put into angles and lines. Your vids make me want to produce again. Thanks.
  8. Yeah man, It was tough as can be on the body. I was on the edge of being injured all the time. I feel a little bad that I haven't pushed the limits lately. I've had some nbd tricks on my mind for a long time. Mr. Langlois will take em all if I wait too long haha! We still need to ride sometime eh???
  9. I saw that my "Grey and Flat" video was posted. Thanks Davetrials! There is a good reason why I haven't been producing videos lately. All summer I was doing 19 shows per week, with only one day off. I had no energy to film. My knees became a little sore so I needed a break after the contract. Now, I am doing a show that is only 3 days per week, but as you saw in Grey and Flat, the town has very little riding. I was stoked to film! Here is my current act: AndyT: no girl, need to buy a bigger van with a double bed first haha ... Thinking Sprinter, with a small garage under the bed in the back for bikes The arcade is getting a lot of use! Putting smiles on many faces, and getting paid well for it! Hope you enjoy this video. Not the craziest riding, but I need to do it many times per day with no falls, so yeah!
  10. Too much controversy. "yes, you did the move that everyone else was doing, but you were an inch to the left, therefore it is a five." Apparently it's ok to put both feet down at the same time as long as you stop and stare at the judge before you continue. Yes, it is meant to be hard, and it was the same for everyone. Jack did 5, and so did Kenny. So why was it so cringe worthy? To start, get rid of the super narrow gate placements and this would have been a much better competition with less reliance on judging and more freedom for the riders. The gates should be just narrow enough to make the riders do the move. Otherwise, you might as well just have a bunch of 1cm wide gates at odd angles and close placements in a parking lot and see if anyone can get through without 5ing. It would be just as hard as these sections.
  11. The hex with a 90x10 stem and rolled forward highrisers does it well. Early 2000s era.
  12. After a year on my enduro bike and now on my trials bike, only a couple pins gone.
  13. thanks! yeah chesters. Ran into a rock on a dh track with those pedals. The pedal was only scratched, but the crank was bent! Strong pedals.
  14. For those who prefer raw format/don't like my editing.
  15. I get what you mean. I do have standards with my riding that I expect to live up to. Generally, if I've seen it done a bunch before or if it doesn't look cool/different in some way then I don't film it. I only film the lines I think will be interesting, the ones I'd like to watch in a video. That does limit what I film, but not in a bad way I think. Nobody wants to watch me doing the same gap or sidehop over and over, myself included. I even do jam whip variations for an hour straight sometimes. For this video, you can see that there are no dangerous lines. I've decided that my motivation for doing those wasn't right. I stuck to what was fun (even if some lines took 45min to land). By the end of the filming process I was just filming what I ran into, I wasn't hunting for locations to do specific tricks. This is probably what you sensed.
