I posted the first Giants Of Dirt late last year (HERE) and have been waiting a while to see a follow up, wondering if the project had been canned or Dane Searls had hurt himself on the jumps. Well, I can wonder no more as this clip dropped on Monday and shows where things are headed, but as the vid shows there's a couple of problems now. Can't wait for pt. 3 but it could be a while I'm guessing.
"Dane Searls has proven himself as one of the world's best big dirt jump riders. In his quest to push himself and BMX dirt jumping further, Dane has teamed up with Unit Clothing to develop the Giants Of Dirt project.
The construction and first ride took place in August, at Matt Schubring's Boonah property, located in Australia. The set-up was totally untested, and Dane took a massive slam in his attempt to clear the whole set-up. He walked away and immediately began planning another attempt.
After months of bad weather, Dane headed back out to the massive jumps, and worked along side Matt Schubring to bring the jumps up to standard and ready to ride. Part 2 of the Giants Of Dirt project documents Dane's next big attempt!
