Check out highlights from this years Hyper Compound Training Camp from last month! Tons of real good riding went down from guys like Scotty Cranmer down through the young guns!
“This is a recap of all the days of the Hyper Compound Training Camp that was held in July. We had a lot of kids from all around come out to support Brett Maddog Banasiwicz in his endeavor to recovery. We had Scotty Cranmer, Cory Berglar and Vinny Mannino there to help with instruction to teach the kids any tricks they were struggling on. They also had time to throw down as well. Thanks to the sponsors, Hyper Bikes, Snafu, Maxxis, Deft Family, EVL, Fatal Clothing, Body Armor, and Vans. The song is: Paper Planes by J$EAN” – Brandon Bermudez

With a title like “Hacksaw Hacksaw” you pretty much know you’re going to see some pretty gnarly shit. This mix edit has a bunch of goodness throughout, but there’s a few real big clips like the wall ride in the beginning and the HUGE clip at the end mixed throughout you gotta see.
Markus Lange is the newest addition to the Bikers Base Clothing team over in Germany. Although this one gets off to a fairly slow start, once the riding kicks in at the 2 minute mark you will be glad you stuck it out because the riding is dialed and there’s some amazing spots. Take a peek!
Here’s two more from the Mongoose Jam that went down last week at Woodward East! Above is the highlights from the dirt contest along with the final results to the contest. After that, check out the Lucky Camper Contest after the jump that you can see some of the campers throwing down for a spot on the teams!
“The 2014 Mongoose Jam Dirt Competition wrapped up at the Camp Woodward dirt course on Friday. The results decided which team would take the glory and bragging rights as well as the largest portion of the $50,000 prize.
At 12PM EST, the entire camp gathered to watch the pros and their fellow campers compete for the win. Everyone cheered as they watched Drew Bezanson (Team Ryan) nail a never-before-seen no handed backflip peg grab. The crowd got even rowdier as Kenneth Tencio attempted a backflip superman seat grab to tailwhip for the fans. However, it was Daniel Sandoval (Team McCann) who took first in the Dirt Competition. Not only was it his wicked downside whip 360 to barspin, but also his variety of tricks, execution, and solid runs that landed him at the top of the leaderboard.
After a solid day of tearing up the dirt, and as scores were tallied, Camp Woodward BMX campers were sent on the hunt for a hidden pedal belonging to Greg Illingworth. The pedal was part of the bike which he rode last year, and this year, it was given to a lucky camper.
In the end, riders met to hear which team was going home with the win. Team Peraza was amped on hearing their names announced – taking home First Place at the Mongoose Jam. Team Peraza totaled the most points overall in Dirt, Park, and Street. Pro Matt Ray (Team Wallace), and former camper, took home M.V.R. (Most Valuable Rider) for his awesome riding and was awarded a Mongoose Teocali mountain bike.
All of the Mongoose Jam amateurs went home with a custom, American-made Mongoose frame, a brand new GoPro 3+, and awesome Mongoose swag. In addition, camper Jackie Straiton (Team Peraza), who pulled a barspin to tuck no hander, was also awarded a free week at Woodward.
