If there’s one thing Nathan Williams, Reed Stark, Alex Kennedy, Corey Martinez, David Grant, Christian Rigal, and Matt Roe all know about, it’s how to enjoy yourself on the road. With the help of Red Bull they took this Big Rig on a trip around Pacific Northwest.
The comfort provided by the RV even gave Reed Stark the conditions he needed to prepare for a handrail that not many others would consider as possible.
“The great outdoors… and I’m not talking about the leafy industrial estate out of town with the awesome rails that you don’t get kicked out of. I’m going on about forests, waterfalls and one hell of a Big Rig ploughing its way through the great Pacific Northwest!
The plan was simple, well, to be honest it was non-existent; take eight friends, both old and new, meet up in Portland, Oregon. Then pile everyone into a 40-foot-long RV and see what happens!
The heavily-laden RV consisted of a pretty eclectic list of names, including Nathan Williams, Reed Stark, Alex Kennedy, Corey Martinez, David Grant, Christian Rigal, and Matt Roe.
After some deliberation and many blank faces we set the compass for south and headed for Salem and Eugene and possibly some of the smaller towns along the way. We soon realised this was probably the worst idea we could have come up with…
Driving an enormous recreational vehicle into small peaceful towns with eight dudes hanging out of every window obviously didn’t go down too well, let alone help with finding spots and being able to ride them long enough to film a clip! Needless to say, we encountered our fair share of small town cop mentalities and bafflingly idiotic reasoning. But despite that we got some pretty amazing bike riding documented in between our troubles, and Reed got his crazy 180-degree curved rail in Eugene, so it wasn’t all in vain.” Fred Murray
