How It Feels To Fly: A Tribute To Dave Mirra. Tomorrow marks 3 years since the passing of a legend. Dave Mirra was truly a larger-than-life rider who will always hold a special place in our hearts here at Woodward Camp. He will be forever memorialized on the BMX cabin thanks to our friend and amazing artist Nick Sawyers.
Ben Gerrish caught up with Nick Fulton down at Hilltop Trails in the UK to whip up a brew and discuss the joys of trail riding/building. A great piece and some motivation to get down the woods and make your own fun. Shout out to Nick and the boys for the hard graft they put in year after year.
