Video: The Unofficial Pinkbike Hip High Jump in Whistler with Dylan Stark, Jackson Goldstone, Ryan Howard, & More

Oct 9, 2019
by Pinkbike Originals  

Hip off is the new whip off.

We invited Dylan Stark, Jackson Goldstone, Ryan Howard, Casey Brown, and a whole host of other professional mountain bikers to send it on the famous Dirt Merchant Hip and see who could go the highest for the Unofficial Pinkbike High Jump Contest. The prize? One thousand cold, hard Canadian dollars. Who took it? Watch and find out. WARNING: Spoilers below.

Round em up. Ring leader Jason Lucas lays down the ground rules for the contest.
Laying down a couple of ground rules before the riders started hucking their meat.

Reece Wallace
It wasn't long before riders were getting some serious airtime.
Reed Boggs

Dylan Stark was consistently blasting into the stratosphere.

Jackson sending to the moon
Jackson Goldstone doing his best to be the youngest human in space.

Billy Meaclem may not have gone the highest, but watching him blast tables was a treat.

This is one intimidating jump to boost.
Reed Boggs racking up the air miles.

R-Dog taking the style approach.

Fedko barely held on to this one as he started to enter orbit.

Cash money for the winner.
In the end it was Erik Fedko who took home the Canadian Bacon.

 @WAKIdesigns: but then someone would have to explain to the nurse how an entire derailleur ended up in my a*shole..

 but just his back wheel got that high, Fedko's entire bike was at the same height so it's pretty fair.

 Ha ha ha ha ha nailed it ! I did follow up with previous comments @Sethimus:

 Real question: Dylan is rowdy af and we were stoked to have him out, but how else could we judge it other than by lowest point?
  • 4 1
 @WAKIdesigns: To me that's the most intimidating hit on DM. You're coming into it full gas and it's a massive wall.

 @brianpark: agree. If Dylan had been able to keep the front wheel level with the rear he would have had it. Props to Jackson for the insane lean off the side of the bike though, kid is mental.

 @krashDH85: it looks amazing and I am sure there is no half arsed hitting it, you have to lean it hard or you end up on the right side of the bike and given the slope to the left that’s a bad prospect.
  • 3 0
 @WAKIdesigns: Not so much that you end up on the right side of the bike, but your trajectory is definitely critical. These guys are going MASSIVE so any little blip in takeoff could be detrimental. Personally followed a buddy 2x (he boosts pretty dang good) but his trajectory was off and he completely aired the landing and exploded on the flats down at the bottom. Definitely have to apply more of a dirt jumping tactic on it

 @krashDH85: good. I love steep lips and steep landings.

 Came here looking for that #robbed comment - not that it's even true. Stark is awesome is all facets. And riding a YT (mentioned for the DVs).

 @krashDH85: no carving off that lip. Had a buddy do the same thing a couple times off of it, any left angle off the lip and you’re at the bottom.
These guys are blasting that thing, I finally got to the point where I could commit to only a tiny brake drag and felt like I was blasting, while being easily 5’ below these guys. Straight up the lip, wait for the stall out at the top and lean left, funnest jump in the park.

 Fedko higher for sure

 I am super impressed by this contest. Much more visually exciting than the long jump.

However, I have the ultimate pro mountain bike competition for you to try. Each pro must take a sip of their energy drink sponsor's product. Whoever can do a convincing "ahh... satisfying" look wins the monopoly money. They have 15 minutes to warm up and 2 sips in the finals. Best sip wins.

For my warm up, I would swish Canadian Club around in my mouth for the last 5 minutes. If that doesn't work maybe try to coat my mouth with wax.

 This was awesome, some old doggs, a female, a young lil killer shredder and Dylan stark. He didn't get robbed, he's getting mad exposure (popularity) and if you f*cks with Dylan, go buy some merch! Wook life, that's the real way to support, put your money where your mouth is. Big ups to this whole segment, more of this on pinkbike.

 Stark is the man! I would love see even half of those riders even hang with stark on riding in general. Dylan Stark cast a big shadow on all the other riders!

 Dylan Stark + Phil Kmetz in Whistler would make a great show!
