Last Monday was the first time I’ve ever seen BMX riders tear apart some dirt jumps. Eric took me down to the 9th Street Trails in Austin and we spent the afternoon drinking and shooting photos of some locals blasting the hips.

Check out nine more photos below!

These dudes were real nice. I didn’t catch their names but if you see this guys, drop a line in the comments.

It took me a little bit to figure out how to shoot at this spot. The sun was coming through the trees, leaving the rider’s faces mottled with shadows.

Then the sun moved to this one open spot, which happened to be right at this one big-ass jump.

It made for some awesome photos. I love how the rider’s shadow is in the dirt cloud.

The guys were blasting off!

Some really good shots, most of which are very similar but this was literally the only spot I could get good photos.

These guys were filming for an edit which will probably end up online soon.

Puckett took the tree-ride to fakie pretty high up.

Heading to the 9th St. Trails was a fucking rad way to spend the afternoon. I wish I coulda caught Chase Hawk hitting them too (brakeless!). Austin’s BMX scene is rad as hell. Thanks to all the riders who let me shoot them. If your photo was in here, lemme know and I’ll update the post!

I just uploaded the rest of the photos to Flickr, so go check them out!

    Hell yeah, Texas style jumps…thick as our toast. We had no idea BMX could be used for anything else. Rad pics.

  • chris campbell

    YES, Chase Hawk is money!! That guy is amazing to watch but then again most of the folks who ride 9th street make it look so smooth and awesome. If you have time try to make it by Terrible 1 and see that ramp jam!!

    chase hawk don’t fuck around. very clean style.

  • Nice shots man, glad they came out sweet and there was some good riders out that day. I broke my wrist 6 weeks ago so I’m taking it easy for a while. I’m the guy with those yellow forks in the second photo, it was rad chillin out there with you guys, good to meet you.
