Uploaded by RideBMXMagazine. An exclusive look at the latest The Hunt DVD with commentary from head judge Will Stroud, “The Hunt is always the craziest part of my year. Getting emails and video submissions from people all over the world during the summer and then waiting to see what crazy video parts turn up for the judges reel.”
It’s never an easy job for Will Stroud and the rest of the judges to compare such unique riding style against one another and set the order for the DVD. When the dust settles, we have another bad ass DVD with rider from around the world that truly captures the spirit of the Hunt. Riders from around the world, regardless of location or sponsors, go head to head in a video part show down. Previous winners Chad Kerley and Ed Zunda are great examples of top riders from opposite ends of the earth who both put in work and made it to the top of their DVD list in 2011 and 2012 and have both moved on to bigger and better things in the years since they competed in the Hunt. We met up with Head Judge Will Stroud to give a little insight into a couple standout riders from this year’s contest and show a little bit from each rider’s video part from the intro to the DVD. You’ll notice we start off with a little throwback to Kerley and Zunda right off the bat then in no particular order featuring Jake Ortiz, Kevin Kiraly, Adam Lee, Sam Bussell, John Dominick, Pascal Lafontaine, Don Delp, Kevin Ventovaara, Dan Norvell and Chijioke Okafo.
This year we are excited to have riders from Washington, San Francisco, Dallas, Nebraska, Los Angeles, Toronto, New Jersey, Montreal and Sweden all in the final DVD which couldn’t have been possible without are sponsors Vans, Bell Helmets, Odyssey BMX and Skullcandy.
