Must Watch: Senders and Bangers at Hoff FEST

Sep 4, 2014
by Fest Series  


"First off I want to say thanks to everyone that helped make Hoff FEST at Retallack happen! We had one of the hottest summers in years while building the course and leading into the event, but when we showed up after Crankworx all we had was rain. While the trails needed some moisture, the course definitely did not. We did all we could to try and make the jumps ridable all week and the Fest riders really showed what it was to work together and make shit happen! Even though with tons of drainage and other techniques to get the course ridable it was still impossible until we got a couple days of sun. While the jumps weren't ridable we had an insane time and I was stoked to have all my friends from around the world come hang out in my back yard. It was definitely a week for the books! After waiting the rain out (and shredding world class trails and maybe a bit of partying...) for 8 days we headed to Nelson for a couple days for a change of a scenery and rode some of my locals spots and chilled out. Finally the sun came out just enough for those two days to dry up the course so that we could go take another try at the jumps. Unfortunately some of the guys couldn't stick around for the extra days, but we went up there on the Wednesday and the jumps were finally dry enough to test out... The jumps worked almost perfect! There were a few big crashes while people figured them out, but pretty much it was game on and we had a hour and a half power session and I couldn't have asked for much more! Can't wait for next year! Enjoy..." - Kurt Sorge

 I absolutely can't wait for Rampage again. I don't know if he used his brakes last year coming down, he was going a lot faster down the course than anyone last year.

 How is that extra crank after that superman seat grab thing I'd think he is trying to get one up on Gwin.

 Andreu's cork/flat 3's are absurd. You can see the moto influence on him and it's so f*cking sick... and it makes me miss seeing Mike Montgomery in slope contests. Outta the whole Fest Series, I think this one was the best by far, trick-wise.
