Hillbilly HuckFEST - Highlights

Aug 8, 2016
by Fest Series  

Hillbilly Huckfest has earned itself the reputation of having Norway's wildest parties, and the Fest Series biggest crowds. The weather held the bike riding back for a few days, but finally on Saturday, most riders had a proper HuckFEST session.

Awards
Andreu Lacondguy showed up late on Friday but flew back to Spain with a best trick award. Nico Vink kept it casual through most of the session, due to some windy conditions, but earned himself another Best style award.

Conor Macfarlane is somewhat new to the fest scene but walked away with Best Line.

Trond Hansen held back on the tricks, but earned the Best Whip award.

Brage Vestavik had a short session, after overshooting the Red Bull kicker to flat. He´s tough as nails and walked away in good shape, but had to call it a day.

Next up is Kurt Sorges HoffFEST, so stay tuned.

 Purple Hill Witch kills it. Turns every bike ride into an epic dragon-slaying adventure.. Or perhaps that is the acid kicking in. \m/

 Insane trick on that size of a jump with a DH bike...
  • + 2
 @MrEtnie: its probably easier on a big bike and a big jump. DH bike is more stable and the flip is probably more controlled. definitely insane though!
  • + 3
 @SnowshoeRider4Life: to back flip a big bike is twice as hard as flipping a dirt jumper, let alone without hands on the bars. A lot of you rotation is lost in the suspension.

 @DavidofTheDirt: yea I get it, ive flipped both to foam lol. Just a comment specific to the suicide flip though. Id think a suicide flip would be tougher on a single crown dj.

 @anchoricex: what does it matter? Imagine how much bigger could they fly if they had E-motors in those bikes. Bring on E-FEST, hell yea, I said it!

 Damn. Now this is mountain biking. Thanks for bringing us into the future with this dope ass blast from the past big bike shredding. Seriously, this is the shit that got me into biking in the first place. So sick to still see it around with the way that enduro and all mountain is taking over. Stoked on how big your events are getting, parties look sick. God damn cult status.
