BACKSTORY: TRAIL LINE NAMES

When it comes to trails, its pretty much a given that the lines and jumps you and your crew build will have to be named in one way or another. Needless to say, this makes for some rather interesting and unique names. Think “Dip Buzz”, “Sloth Hawk” and “Whammo” to name only a few.

With that said… I thought it would be interesting to dig deeper (no pun intended) and find out how some of these names came about.

We spoke to John Skvarla from Keyko Trails, Chris Janis from Catty Woods, Clint Reynolds from Eastside, Cody Diggs from Scituate, Jeremy Muller from La Source, Jay Lonergan from POSH, Anthony Napolitan from Wetlands and Mark Potoczny from Hazelwood to get the backstory on how some lines/jumps at their respective trails got their names. Click below.

*Please note – this is only a small portion of interesting names and respected trails out there.

Dan Closser at Lynnwood Trails

Growing up in Michigan, Dan Closser was the youngest kid in our crew. He rode a TNT bike and ordered all his parts from Dan’s Comp, so we called him “Dan’s” Closser. He hated that.

Now he’s one of the shreddingest trails riders out there, all grown up with a job, a wife, a friendly attitude and a positive outlook. Tyler Deschaine has created a video for S&M Bikes, showing Dan doing his thing one last time before his home trails in the Seattle area were plowed. Above photo by Teddy Van Orman.

Gettin’ Nostalgic With Chris Doyle

We are super excited to present part 1 of “Gettin’ Nostalgic” with Chris Doyle. Put together by Will Stroud, who grew up with Chris and basically documented their entire lives on BMX. Chris and Will took a trip back to the infamous 401 trails, where they spent countless hours on their bikes along with guys like Ryan Barrett and Cory Muth.

Mixed with lots of amazing old footage, this piece gives you a great look back on a set of trails and a group of riders that not only made an impact on eachother, but have influenced the sport of BMX on so many different levels.

Keep reading to check out part 1 of Gettin’ Nostalgic as well as some great words from Chris Doyle!
