A belting way to kick off your Monday – Tom Arkus’ section from Vinyl LP.
CANYOUDIGIT INFO: Tom didn’t want to write his own description so I (Jon Saunders) get the pleasure of writing it. Tom’s part is simultaneously one of my favorite and least favorite parts in the video. It’s my favorite because of all the amazing French spots that he rides in it. It’s my least favorite because I’m insanely jealous of all the amazing French spots that he gets to ride in it. In all seriousness though, Tom’s part is rad and makes you not only want to go out and ride but also go out and dig. In my opinion that’s exactly what a kick ass trails part should do.
Kurt Perkins is back on his bike following a couple months out due to a broken collarbone, and hooked us up with a couple fresh photos of his current set-up now he’s back up to speed. Kurt keeps it simple, dialled, and all-black — and you can’t go wrong with that.
Aidan took a massive digger while riding at the indoor park at Prevail, Poole, last weekend and ended up smashing his kidneys somewhat; resulting in a few days spent in Bournemouth Hospital with a wee tube up his manhood. Thankfully Aidan’s now back home and taking it easy… get well soon mate!
Definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Remy Archer‘s latest video is all good… and there’s a damn good story behind it too:
INFO: In the past year I have been lucky enough to see 12 different countries, climb to the top of mountains and swim to the bottom of the sea. I’ve broken 4 bones, snapped a ligament and ruptured 2 more. Spending 9 out of 12 months in casts or splints gave me a lot of time to think about what’s important to me. Something that stood out was the people I surround myself with. The people I am drawn to tend to be non-conformist, do-or-die, risk takers. These people also tend to be happier. Are the crashes a result of mis-placed confidence or do they facilitate our desire to be the best we can be? I am honoured to know such brave and barmy people and be able to call them my friends. May we never forget that life begins at the edge of our comfort zones. — Remy
