 Pretty sure DJ was filming for this near the old Rampage site back in mid-November. At the end of the day he was making his way down from the ridge where we were seshing a step up in a line of three jumps. He cork flipped the step up and styled the rest and made the kids night. Super humble dude

 Heavy video. Imagine doing Rampage then rolling into all this for weeks after that contest. Heavy month of riding if not more. The spin into the flat flip was rowdy. Everyone went nuts when claw three'd into a double drop and then super seated out. That was next level.

 is that first on/off the same one from stripped? so dope! I think biking needs a full length with riders like DJ and Paul Genovese and Dylan Stark all in if we want to save our sport from the mountain enduro adventure instagram f*cks. Thanks DJ Brandt for keeping me wanting to ride bikes a bit longer

 Got to love that 30" step up that DJ back flips at the beginning, Really want to build a jump like that!
Only thing you can do wrong on a jump like that is go too slow?

 The first time I saw DJ was at Highland a few years ago and thought who TF is this wild man. He's by far one of the most talented people I've ever seen on two wheels.

 Peter Jamison kills it. We ran into him and Reed Boggs working on a project at the old Rampage site last week. Super nice guy and a hell of a rider in his own right.

 Man...we gotta have a drought of biblical proportions in WNC to be able to do those drifts he was doing.

That...or poach stuff we shouldn't be. Which...we shouldn't be. So...if you see drifting videos from WNC...they probably poachin' Big Grin

 Hope to be seeing Dj in Rampage again. The man's got the style and bag of tricks to podium, just needs to unlock them in his way down somehow.

Rockstar athlete: you can tell I'm sponsored by Rockstar because I'm going to include super gratuitous shots of me drinking Rockstar, and I'm going to clog my insta feed with really awkward shots of me acting like I actually drink this sugary piss water. *it also says so on my helmet.
