Sam Reynolds Goes Massive in the Quarry

Dec 8, 2017
by Sam Reynolds  

bigquotesDeep in the heart of Surrey there is a little known derelict sand quarry that hasn't been used for years... Not for its original use anyway! For the past 10 years or more it has just been a place where naughty people ride their pit bikes and mess around. Me and my mates are some of those naughty boys so when Si told me he had met the owner of a Quarry in Guildford and we were allowed to build there I knew exactly where it was and how awesome it was to build jumps!

The vast walls and piles of dirt provide a great playground to work with and the sandy dirt make a unique but challenging build. With loads of help from Si and Chris I managed to build what I thought was an awesome mix of trickable features, flowy jumps and one massive beast of a jump! It was all good but then we thought maybe I could do with more speed down the road... And the boys from Monster Energy said why not try the Pre-Runner!

Good for a tow in...

And one hell of a ride back to the top!

Leaner

The jumps are sandy and soft and often require a little freshen up!

Nothing better than a good table!

And then takes the other hand off!

And then looks for the landing between his legs...

Back on the Big Rig for the big jump!

Spinning the big mamma was crazy!

And the Grand Finale! Was epic to look down on this truck drifting below!

And what would be the point in it all if there weren't a few good donuts to finish!

 Editing before neg prop storm begins... I just used the google to educate myself on the fact that pre-runners are not exclusive to Toyota. In fact are most 2wd truck lifted and typically with use to preview race courses by pro off road racers. Forgive the ignorance.

 Yep, you never know what you might see doing pre-runner duties!

 You can make any truck a prerunner. Not sure why everyone thinks that only toyotas are

 @Chingus-Dude: Cuz Toyota actually named their 4wd platform minus the front drive components the "Pre-Runner". The name was to differentiate it from the regular "2wd Tacoma" which is on a different, lower ride height platform.

 Wanna ride there? See Si u can find him through pedal & spoke in peaslake , do a jump course with him cos he’s the guy behind it, then if you help build and maintain you’re always welcome when Si or his boys are there (insurance reasons).

Don’t go uninvited, that just messes with everything, play nice, be rewarded, you may even see Sam ride!
