Hear ye, hear ye. All ye men who wish to approach ye Gauntlet of Death! Yesterday, instead of moping around the house feeling bummed out about missing #MWM2, I went over to the Texas Toast site to check in on the progress of the street course. Part of the course is dubbed the Gauntlet of Death and man, it is something else!

Check out more photos below!

The main-event is the Empire BMX curved wall ride. Holy shit!

But TREE has something in store for the riders as well. This tree-fort inspired see-saw is ridiculous. Yes, you have to ride up that face!

The dogs were back in full effect.

Shadow and Subrosa‘s installations are going to break people off!

Transport two wheels with two wheels. Clint Reynold’s motorcyle-bmx bike rack is sick as shit!

Another attraction at Texas Toast will be the longest icepick rail. Three, 20′ segments are being welded, sanded and primed to go!

No matter how old you may think you are and no matter what kind of bike you ride. You can still get rad!
