Video: Cam McCaul Practises his Trail Bike Tailwhips on a Mulch Jump

What's the best way to work on a trick and minimize risk...? Find a pile of mulch and drag a ramp up to it, you got yourself a mulch jump. If the pile of manure next to the mulch happens to have better shape.... drag the ramp up to that instead and plug your nose.

Earlier this day I made a cheeky little modification to my trail bike that we commonly use on Slopestyle bikes in order to remedy the issue of crank-spin while tail whipping. I've always dreamed of having a trail bike that can do tailwhips and this modification was the last piece of the puzzle to bring this dream to reality. The bike mod + the safe / smelly jump made for a perfect little Fisher Price-esque setup to get it all dialed in once and for all. Dusty Wygle joined in on the action because he likes fun things and we had ourselves a time.

 @codfather1234: I agree, the McCaul brothers are a treasure for sure. Their part in the Netflix movie "Apprentice" just made me smile, over and over again. Great vibes abound.

 I love how trails bikes are evolving into slope bikes you can pedal.

 Can't pedal all that well if you put in the crank stopper bolt like Cam does, though!

 Manure is mulch, has been for 1000's of years, just not on landings.
