Ol' dirty bastards

Derek Brower
Over labor day weekend the guys running the legendary BMX trails Catty Woods held a jam including some fun contests, a steady supply of grilled delicacies and a good turnout of riders and spectators.  It's really impressive how committed these guys are to these trails.  Each piece is like a work of art, carefully crafted and shaped to be both functionally superior and aesthetically admirable.  Hours upon hours of shovel time have went into building this empire in the woods.  They've also worked hard to make this spot a legitimate, insured place to ride that is known around the world as some of the best trails on the planet.

Click through after the jump for a few more shots from the day.  Other than a few mixups with photographers swapping Pocket Wizard channels, I felt very lucky to be there shooting.  I can't wait to go back.

  1. Yeah, I felt super privileged to be there and able to shoot. It was stretching for me photographically as I had never shot trails of that caliber and size before.
