|Loamers are easy - Soft, grippy, forgiving. Craig Evans is hard, talented and relentless, which is how he's able to make some of Yorkshire's greasiest, squarest rocks look like a flow trail. |

But humor aside, i doubt such a trail would be rideable for more than a season. Be it because of wear, or because of injuries and backlash (which unfortunately dictate a growing amount of our sports' progression).
I definitely get your point though- here in Israel we got hundreds of km of sanctioned trails, but all too manicured and not a single sanctioned jump or drop.
Cool, I honestly wasn't even sure whether those are actual trails or jibbing section. Great to hear you guys are keeping such trails active too, they're getting harder to come by.
And on a side note, why would anyone down vote my original reply?! Lol, did i say something THAT negative?
Love the video.
Only comment would be maybe Sarah Moore or Santa Cruz bicyles could step into the now and drop the "S" word from your quote. You're a North American brand! If you don't get this comment you have some reading to do!
Nice work Craig and filmers...I wanna go ride rocks.
It doesn't have quite the same connotations in Yorkshire, mind you...
A savage is some who does not care about the Consequences of his or her actions. Usually the savage will do things that make other people say, "What the f@ck are you crazy?" It has been over used to mean other things but this is the orinigal meaning.
Having said that, I'd be more than happy to see the adverts for Eau Sauvage get cancelled. How much money does Johnny Depp need?
As far as looking hard to find offence, it seems to me there are no shortage of people willing to do exactly that nowadays.
