One Minute of Madness - Loosefest 2017 - Video

Loosefest has been a crazy week with amazing high's and a few scary moments, but all in all the best week of riding anyone can imagine!

The guys warmed up fast and didn't waste time getting sideways on the top three jumps. Soon enough someone had the courage to test the new hip at the bottom and that man was Tom Isted. With the most airtime of any jump on course, the guys were flying for over two seconds! It wasn't long before they were comfortable enough to send some tricks over it too.

On Friday evening, just as everyone was settling into the line Remy Morton took his first go at the bottom hip and went too far—he nosed in heavy and had a really horrible crash. He is stable and in good hands and all the boys are sending him the best wishes for a smooth recovery. That ended the session with everyone shaken and the focus on making sure our friend was ok.

With word of lots of rain on Sunday, Saturday was our last opportunity to session the beasts and it was the most amazing session of the week. With everyone comfortable on the jumps it was sideways central with Tom Isted flipping the second almost every run and Bas van Steenbergen whipping both ways with ease. Sam Reynolds, king of the leanies, was getting the bike completely over his head and doing the sickest turn-ups on the third. Tyler Bereman was also sending it with the boys with his trademark style and ended the event with a huge one footed whip over the big MX jump at the third.

The crowds were treated to an amazing day of riding and the vibe with the group of riders was so good! Chilled, but when business time was here, they sent it like champions!

 Tom Isted is a badass for guinea pigging the hip.

 When a moto and a mountain share the same jump, go the same speed, and land near the same spot, I am extremely overwhelmed.

 Sounds epic- hope remy Morton is ok. Love how frat series seems to open up to whatever pro rider wants to shred them. It's made for some epic line ups!

 Anyonelse noticed that Sorge and Aggy have been quiet this year? Or have I just missed a bit?

 Aggy never went at the Loose Fest and he's still probably injured since Rampage. And I think Sorge is with Zink, Berrecloth, Doerfling and others to shoot a new movie. Smile

 @Voxran: Pretty sure Aggy was doing ok and back on the bike since Rampage then messed up his ankle at one of the Fest stops. Not sure what Sorgie has been up to.

 what is the probability of doing those big jumps successfully and survive for any beginner riders with only BIG BALLS and ride VERY FAST? I wonder.
  • + 2
 Low I think haha! Even if you had the nuts to hit the jumps at the right speed the chances of you keeping the right shape in the air to land are pretty slim
