Giants of Dirt - Pics

Nov 18, 2010
by Unit Clothing  
We had a massive day filming with Dane Searls at the Giants Of Dirt yesterday. Here is a little B Roll photo gallery from the helicopter shoot, which included Dane throwing down some massive tricks over the 35 foot trick jump for the camera, before snapping his bike clean in half after nose casing a 360 tail whip! The footage is absolutely mind blowing, and the highlight would have to be Dane stomping a 360 superman seat grab over the big trick jump, after going down hard on the first attempt.

Somehow Dane escaped without injury.

We are planning to continue filming in a few days, the next goal is to make it over the 50 and 60 ft jumps. The whole set is running a lot faster now, and has dried up.

Stay tuned...

 It might be record for dirt but not overall. The record is 69ft, set on jackass's tribute to Evel Knievel.

 Hey guys, thanks for the comments, Dane is stoked! Just to clear it up, Danes aim for these jumps wasn't to break any distance records, otherwise he would of just got towed into a moto ramp and kept pulling it back. This was all about progressing BMX dirt jumping and seeing what was poosible. The mega ramp is gnarly, but it is perfectly dialled and alot safer than a set of jumps like this. As I am sure you would all agree, there is a lot more variables in a downhill set of untested dirt jumps, than on the mega ramp. Stat tuned for more!

 thats what i was trying to say, hes not going for records just progression. is there plans for anybody else to hit them after he does them?

 Absolutely Brett, we have alot of cool plans, but they all come down to making sure Dane can jump all the way through first, then the ideas can all come to life!

 BMX is intense, I'm surprised every bike didn't break. These guys need some suspension. Anyone see that huge ramp in the background of the last pic?
