Three months ago, if I were to tell you that we were making another film, I’d be lying through my teeth. But, as I sit now, I’m sitting on a plane nearly two-thirds of the way through filming our next video, Range Of Motion. It all started with a concept (which I’ll get to), quickly working out the many, many details, and then putting our face (all the way to our teeth) to the grindstone to expedite the first trip. So much so, that we went into the first trip not even knowing what the video is called. If you follow us on Twitter, you probably already got wind, but it’s finally time to give a formal introduction to Range Of Motion…
Four riders who are well-rounded, able, and astounding on anything you put in front of them—Dennis Enarson, Tony Hamlin, Sergio Layos, and Dave Dillewaard.
Take those four riders on three trips focusing on each type of riding. Trip number one, a park trip up in the Great Northwest, has already gone down. A dirt trip up in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York is going on at this very moment. And a street trip along the California coast will go down about a month from now.
Now add in four more shredders on each trip that specialize, if you will, in what we’ll be riding that trip. Drew Bezanson, Simon Tabron, Darin Read, and newbie Ryan Wert went up to Oregon to ride cement. Cory Nastazio, Adam Baker, Mike “Hucker” Clark, and Luke Parslow are with us right now in the Northeast. And Aaron Ross, Garrett Reynolds, Sean Sexton, and Rob Wise will be with us in Cali.
Darryl Tocco. You probably know him more for his work on the bike, but Darryl has been putting together videos for years, starting from the Bad Timing series and most recently, Kink’s Safety First. A straightforward style, the ability to make all the right decisions, and he’s pretty damn easy to get along with.
Expect daily updates from the road with photos and video, some features based around the video, articles in the pages of Ride highlighting the best moments of each trip, and a mish-mash of who-knows-what to come.
Fall. More specifically, around November. Start savin’ your twenty spot.
