Twitch Spinnin' a 360
Yesterday afternoon I loaded up my camera gear while Garland and Ox loaded up their dirt bikes (I’m pathetic) and headed out to Deegan’s house to shoot some photos and video of the donkeys practicing. Garland, OX, Fluffy and Urek were all there sessioning the ramps and Kinnaird and Twitch were trying 360’s and barrel rolls into the foam pit.
It was Kinnaird’s first ever go at the foam pit and the first couple times went alright, but on his third barrel roll attempt he bailed from the bike and the bike landed on him burying him head first six feet deep in foam. Dayne ended up walking away a little dazed and with a sore ankle but still very alive. The lesson of the day is foam pits, though soft and cooshy, can still be hurt and possibly KILL you.
Twitch was having a better time in the foam and was almost pulling around his opposite spin inverted “Twitch-whip” style 360’s. Give Twitch a couple more days spinning into the foam and he will have them down to perfection and onto dirt in no time.
Deegan, Faisst, Potter, Scummy and Manley are out of town filming for a future episode of Viva La Bam. No details as of yet, but they are F-ing sh!t up and we will have a story and photos up when they get back.
