To collect footage you need to get out there and film. The Hoffman team of Bruce Crisman, Chris Souter, Seth Kimbrough, Jon Taylor, Ryan Barrett and Sebastian Keep loaded up some vans and hit the road in Europe. H*B's Mark Owen and Bryan Baxter were on board to do some filming. The countries that were treated with some riding were England (big session at the Seventies warehouse), France (Bercy/Paris) and Germany (Cologne/DÃ¼sseldorf area).
Although the team visited the 2004 World's in Cologne, there is zero contest footage in the Euro Trip. Brakeless riders Seth, Chris and Bruce don't need much to do sick tricks. Give them a ledge, a few stairs and a flat bank and you'll see backwards tricks, 360-s and barspins all mixed up. Stand out on the Euro trip is by far Seth Kimbrough. He delivers on everything. Big rails included, well impressed. The editing/graphics are well done. It follows the theme of the H*B ads in the magazines.
Sometimes it takes years to get enough footage to make a video. It shows that one trip is not enough to get a full on video as it stopped at 20 minutes. That's where the individual sections come in with footage from other Hoffman riders (Achim Kujawski, Art Thomason, Kevin "H-D" Robinson). Jon, Bruce, and Ryan also get their own section with riding that did not happen on this particular road trip. Barrett's bonus part is great with some dirt and serious street riding. His gap to rail is hardcore.
Another bonus feature is the slideshow full of great Ricky Adam shots, party pics and fun stuff (80+ photo's). It also has shots of Coach's HDT party bike. Cheers.
Although the footage of the Euro Trip itself is rather slim, the extra footage backs up the Euro Trip DVD.
