Adam Banton NC Summer Vacation
Adam Banton headed to North Carolina this summer for a little bit of BMX, humidity and hanging with some friends. Here are a few photos from the trip along with some words from Adam himself. Check back Friday for the video.
This photo is so damn literal. Adam said; " I wanted to start the trip off keeping it real." Note: Houdini the Rabbit was not harmed in anyway.
A double nosepick in Bedford from Adam and Leigh. Front brakes in full effect.
These two photos are from one of the many DIY spots in North Carolina. Look how good that hip is made! Looks like a skatepark doesn't it?
At a ditch doing some clean up with Adam and Jason "Showtime" Hernandez. It was roasting this day and Adam had this to say about the
humidity; "A horrible reminder of why I moved away from the East coast a long time ago. It's not that bad if you pull every thing first try
all the time. But thats just boring if your that good, hahah."
We had a special guest filmer this day. He did end up getting on everyones nerves talking about TP.
The local crews in North Carolina are on point as Adam mentions; "They shred, put in hard work to make their scene better all the time,
they are the best tour guides and each one has their own unique style that's motivating to watch. I have never had a bad session riding
with these guys, and always end the trip wanting to plan another one."
Charlotte local and Eastern rider, Zach Rogers was just coming off an injury but still shredded his local spots.
Sometimes the TM has to strech his legs. Leigh Ramsdell feebling a little jib he set up for fun.
Zach inverts out of the wall. This place is so amazing.
Adam and a no-footed nosepick to fakie a one of the best DIY spots. "I personally love foundation projects, making them, riding them,
looking at them. Its hard work and always worth it. Everyone that I have ever rode is different. If you think you don't have anything to
ride in your town, go build stuff. The Charlette scene has this on lock. To me, riding spots like this are what I love about BMX the most.
Chill atmosphere and creative outlets." is what Adam had to say about this DIY spot.
Don't forget to come back Friday and check out the Video from this trip!
