On the road with Bonedeth
We've always pedaled by this spot over the years. Finally we stopped one day and moved about 15 trash cans so that Burns could hit it. What you cant see in the photo is how skinny the take off is, and with the garden hose rack sticking out of the wall it was a tight squeeze. Right as he's getting ready to jump this thing, some Harvard tourist group line up out front of the parking lot to watch and yell "DOO IT". If this wasn't enough, one of the tenants comes out to see what is going on, so we explained to her that we're art students taking pictures for fashion catalog and the brick walls on her building were perfect for the shoot. Finally after the circus clears Burns got it done, then jumped it a few extra times for fun.
Chris recently made the move to Boston and has been putting in work filming for his video "Rotten." Here's a big three right down the street from his house that you'll see in his section.
This is one of those moves that was common ten years ago, but it just seemed to vanish off the map of "tricks" over the years. Chris brings it back on a bank to fence in Boston.

This is like rolling in on a vert ramp, except it's bumpy, concrete and has a small gate door to squeeze through at the bottom. Dirt and Dean train it for fun.

It took me about 15 minutes or so to understand what Diamonds wanted to do on this house. I didn't fully understand it until he took one run up. This left me a few seconds to adjust and shoot as he started pedaling to bomb over this guy's garage. He did it first take and I managed to get the photo.

Diamonds combining a classic trick and a classic spot.
Ron rides this place like it's his backyard, this is one of many tricks he had for this wild vert quarter.
Ron was blasting over this hip so far to the point where he had to stop and landscape a bunch of brush and tumble weeds out of his way.
Ron is one of my favorite people to watch ride because he's truly having fun. He rides with a huge smile across his face at all times. This is one of many tucks he aired on this quarter while pedaling around this ditch.
For the past few years Jay's been spending his Australian winters in the U.S. for summer, and the American winters back home to catch the Australian summer. This was shot by Jamie Mauri when Jay was down under.
Kert was doing this tire ride as a warm up for something else he wanted to try, but like most colleges, you don't always get a lot of time to ride a certain spot. The fact that security was walking up the stairs to stop him didn't phase him one bit he was still charging down this thing.
I've seen a lot of big wall rides over stairs, a lot of big gaps to fire crackers, but you rarely see them put together. Kert fired this off one take, within a few minutes of rolling up to the spot.
It's always tough when you hand your camera off to a friend to snap a photo of yourself, you're never to sure if it's gonna work out or not, Thanks to Mike it worked out this time around.
I'd looked for this spot forever, only to find out I had been pedaling one block away from it for years to ride a spot that is directly behind the building. So to finally find it and ride it, I was hyped. I got to hit it a handful of times before breaking my cranks in half and cutting my leg wide open. Luckily, Burns got this photo right before that happened.
