So I was a little off the ball for Throwback Thursday, but it’s all good, because now we have Flashback Friday. This video was one I did back in 2010 with one of the OGs himself, Travis Steward. I myself am not a fan of whomps on whomps on whomps but Travis did work with this one. I didn’t even know what the term “dubstep” meant when this video was done, had no idea what the hell we were listening to. But it ended up being cool and that’s what it’s all about. So whether you are into the Disco Pogo jam or not, bump the shit out of this video and watch the rippers hop around this course. Southwick is always a good watch with the whooped out sand and natural hills. The go big or go home mentality of these racers has them thinking one thing: Full throttle or no throttle. [ed. note: Is Danny Stu just bad-assing the fuck out of us with that line or what?]
I’m throwing this one back as far as I can. It’s ’07 Loretta’s, and it’s first decent video I made that some may consider worth a watch. Conveniently enough, it was arguably one of the most stacked classes LL has scene. The A class itself was worth going for. Izzi, Stroupe, and Canard were the big names going at it and despite those names not all being as relevant as it seemed they would be, there is no denying these dudes were on it back in the day. Plenty of guys deserve a mention in this one, and that’s why we’re looking back at it right now, because it’s packed with some of the biggest names to go through the ranks. One thing worth mentioning is the amount of fucks Phil Nicoletti gives about racing with a broken collar bone, which apparently is zero fucks. – @DannyStu_164
People are all about the trendy shit these days, the Follow Fridays on twitter, Snoop Dogg’s Puff Puff Pass Tuesdays, and of course, the Throwback Thursdays. It’s Thursday and we’re throwing it back to a day in July that was way too hot to ride for anyone less boss-like than Justin Barcia and Eli Tomac. Notice in this video there is nobody else riding. Was it too hot for anyone else, or is it a private track where you gotta know people who know people who know people to ride there? Whether it’s one of those reasons or both, they are bosses. This is a statement that can’t be argued at this time, seeing how they just swept the SX Lites titles with time to kill. Never mind the fact that the season isn’t even over, they’re already crowned champs and looking to the outdoors, just as we’re doing. So go on, drive in reverse with your rear view and see what’s ahead of us with this throwback. – @DannyStu_164
Danny Stu finally came out of hibernation and just dropped this artsy piece for the fans. New England BROs keep it real. And Flo-Rida tries to do the same (note: He is not successful). And yes, you will spy Mike Sottile in there on the #515, living the boss lifestyles.
DS164 and I spent a little time down at South of the Border MX for the past couple weeks. All of you who have ever driven 95 will recognize South of the Border as the Mexican themed extravagant stop on the North and South Carolina border that has about a billion billboards in each direction. The track is literally right behind all that crap, no joke. They were running this LL area qualifier when we got there. I owe it to the BROs over there to post this even though it is dubstep. I yelled at DS164 for doing this to me. He couldn’t hear me, though, because his ear drums were blown out from all the womp, womp, womp.
The track there was pretty killer, as was the performance by everyone’s favorite KTM Masshole, Robby Marshall. Of course, this was an amateur race so he was just hurting people’s feelings out there.
And here we have the latest from DS164. I have to admit that when I first heard this song, I though it was that Chiddy Bang garbage that I just said I do not want to see in a video ever again. It, of course, is not and luckily I had not jumped off the ledge by the time I realized it. These are two of the up and comers Paul Coates and Chris Alldredge. Coates of course is the latest transplant from Britain aka that country that America defeated with pitchforks and wooden teeth. Now, we steal their fast riders just for fun, they are the lunch money of the high school that is the United Nations.
Then there is the Alldredge kid. Am I the only one who thinks that Am riders with good style just look way better with Fly gear? It must be some of the reverb from the Jason Anderson days. I don’t even run Fly gear, but the Am kids who do always have that “A Fuck is the last thing I could give” style that makes them cooler than the other side of the pillow in an ice hotel with an air conditioner.
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.
Moto Limelight and BROtocross were at A1 for press day. While I was laying low and taking in the scene, we did a couple of interviews with some riders in a fairly vanilla fashion, me asking the questions and DS164 behind the camera and the edit. This was not done as official BRO content, but I thought the interviews still came out pretty well. More or less, K-Dub is the man but you already knew that, Short is way cooler in person than is suggested on TV, and Chad Reed is pretty much just a boss.
So DS164 and myself were at Milestone yesterday peeping Bogle and Windham and a couple of the privateer BROs do business on the Supercross track. While I was doing my thing, DS comes up to me and says that he got a shot that I had to check out. Immediately after seeing this, I demanded that he upload the clip so I could blog about it. This is why the young guns just kick ass; at the end of the day, they just have to have fun. Like, they honestly need to do it. I honestly feel like shit like this is what makes these kids so fast. They just toss whips and one footers with flow for days. Bogle did not even know we were filming him at this point, this is just how he gets off the track. He don’t give a fuck. Just doing his damn thing and letting the world know that you will not be stopping his swagger.
Who else is posting shit on X-mas? Time to mogul up, world. I already gave everyone the gift that keeps on giving with the quad guys sending themselves that much closer to the short bus, but DS164 decided to publish this little number last night, so I figured a second present was appropriate. Mike Sottile and Jake Abbott, two of MA’s sharpest prospects, just doing their damn thing and having more fun than the rest of you. Trust me when I say you will be hearing from both of these BROs in the coming years.
