Rampage park in Iowa was going to close down but not before the FBR posse made it over for a session. Riders who showed up for the front brake tech session at Moliterno’s park included Osato, Anthony Pill, Ryan Nyquist, Chad de Groot, Freimuth, James Hitchcox, Eben Fischer and more high level tech riders. Legend is basically a video that covers the happening at Rampage plus a few extra’s like an insane Rob Ridge part, a pre Rampage road trip of the UK squad to Area 51, 4 Seasons and Terry’s Barn. If you like chaos, you’ll like the Hummer riding over two cars and all the fire that went on in that session.
The riding covers roughly 30 minutes. A good part of that comes from Anthony Pearson who rips and seems to learn tricks on the fly. A bunch of riders get a riding part followed by a little interview where they talk about riding with a front brake, the event and Rampage. The video has a bronze feeling to it. It’s like having a black and white roll of film developed on colour paper. It didn’t disturb me.
