The holidays are about spending time with your family, but there’s only so much of that time you can take. Really. When you’re stuck at Aunt Ida’s house hearing Uncle Eddie tell the same “cool story, bro” for the twenty-third year in a row, you can escape with this pair of awesome motocross films.
You can start with Moto 7, the latest in Taylor Congdon’s line of ground-breaking pieces. Available in (what’s now considered) old school DVD or available for download, the video features on-location shots at Blake Baggett and Justin Barcia’s private tracks, for example, as well as riding way, way out in the middle of nowhere with the Sipes brothers, and a segment with EnduroCross rider Colton Haaker that’s simply incredible. Much more to see in this one, too.
Youthful Edge, meanwhile, presents a more, um, Youthful Edge, as this video focuses on the younger stars. Ryan Walters has been shooting the amateur scene forever and he can make the stars of tomorrow look like stars today. The rider list includes Ryder DiFrancesco, Carson Mumford, Austin Forkner, Darian Sanayei, Derek Drake, Challen Tennant, Mitchell Falk, Sean Cantrell, Blake Green, Gage Schehr, Axell Hodges, Kaed Kniffing, Haiden Deegan, Huckson Deegan, Wyatt Grant, Talon Hawkins, Hunter Yoder, Rookie White, Michael Mosiman, Josh Mosiman, Ryan Surratt, Ikua Hughes, Conner Mullennix, Tristan Miller, Dylan Merriam and more. Bottom line is, if you watch it, you’ll get to say “I remember this dude when he was just a kid” in a few years.
