TRAIL MAKEOVER 2013

These guys are what riding is all about. Each winter they spend months tending to every square inch of some of the best trails I've ever seen. This film is to show how much work it takes. If you know the location of these trails please keep it to yourself. Enjoy!

 I'm lost for words! Your commitment over the long months has done you proud, innovative, beautifully shot, cleverly cut, great tunes, Neil was right in saying that you truly have captured the camaraderie, passion and commitment of the crew of Gate23, this is a real tribute to the magic you guys have created and developed over the years, Amazing work Gav! Way beyond VOD!

 These guys deserve an award for the effort they put in and the AMAZING trail building.
  • + 5
 Building is a rare trait now any one can do it but only a few can do it well and these guys have taken it above that. one thing i have noticed is some of the best riders are the best builders and that is the case for these guys.

  • + 5
 Dude if I had an Evoc backpack I'd give it to you!! That well made me laugh- if they could dig that fast then they really would be smoking!.. and the trails would have reached Birmingham by now.

 Fantastic work all round guys, from the graft to the edit! I wish there were more builders like you up my neck of the woods. I'm even more gutted I tore my hamstring last night now 'cause this video just gave me so much inspiration to hit my local trails.

 The most perfect video I have ever seen, but why bmx's :Frown :
  • + 3
 It's one of the few places I have been to that has no real divide between BMX and MTB- and why should there be?? Bikes are bikes dude. If your mind was more open you'd probably be riding much nicer trails.
