Just saw this video from Twitch. Basically a shitload of whips on big jumps so it is more or less a masterpiece. And shout out to the dude who brought back the turn down with an accidental nac-nac.
People are asking why Hanny isn’t racing. I say his racing days are behind him. It’s time to get video part moto off the ground and Hansen is a prime candidate. Just do whips and shit that makes old guys uncomfortable, get it on camera, and let the sponsors see those exposure dollars roll in. Read more »
So if you didn’t know, this past weekend was the Zwarte Cross in Holland. It is basically some giant heavy metal festival surrounding a moto race in which everyone is super hungover/still totally blasted. I had heard of this event last year when Hanny went over for it, but this year I am doing the research and I have to say it is just further proof that America, while inherently better than not-America, was founded by prudes. You go to a race in America and you get booted for raising it up on a 110 (like a boss) and are forced to sneak back into the pits (also like a boss). Over in Europe, if you aren’t wearing a viking helmet made out of the bones of the mastodon you killed last night in a drunken stupor, you’re a joe, so just get out of the way. It’s like while we say – “Hey, there’s people drinking at my motocross race,” they say – nothing because they are too busy getting hammered to the wall. Like if you watch these videos, everyone is actually speaking perfect English, they just have a mouthful of beer or vodka or goat’s blood at all times, which slurs their speech a tad.
If you really want the YouTube Zwarte Cross experience, here is a 26 minute video entirely in Dutch of the mayhem (and a much better shot of that crash at the 10:28 mark):
Because moto is punk rock as fuck and hip hop as shit. At the same time. H&H has been gaining tremendous points with me lately – first they sign Hansen, then they ditch the black bikes, now they sign my dude Kyle Regal, who also does not give a fuck, in case you hadn’t heard.
Oh, you don’t follow BROtocross on instagram? What a shame…
DS164 has been continuing the BROCal adventure without me this week, and, as you can see, is not really missing a beat without the leadership of his fearless captain with this vid from Starwest. He told me I was not going to like this video because he was using a Sam Adams song. As usual, I thought he used the song well. That kid always does this, takes a song I don’t like and makes a dope video out of it. I will not download this song. I will not download this song….
Speaking of Sam Adams, in Cali at a Chile’s, DS164 left my number on a receipt for our waitress and labeled it as “Boston’s Boy”. He honestly thought for sure she would be calling. She did not. That never works.
You know, I hate being late to the game with videos like this. But, come on, if they expect me to get up early and throw this shit up, they are forgetting what BRO is really all about. Regardless, this video is pretty high on the nice scale. No SX test tracks within sight; just the BROs doing their thing. I don’t understand why companies do not regularly put out videos like this. Seriously, think about the brand recognition that Shift is getting from this video; it is way more than a magazine ad.
Hanny’s opposite turndown whatevers are what I like to see in a dunes video. I can honestly say that every time Hansen shows up on the internet I like him more. And Josh Hill back on the scene. I know that Josh knows how to get down so it is good to see him not crashing then looking like a stuffed animal that your dog just got finished with.
This may be way too much to hope for, but please tell me that H&H is going with green bikes this year. Black bikes are just the worst. Read more »
