Bread and butter, the core pillars that hold the very food chain together – a reliable option that will never let you down no matter what. Naturally, you’d come to expect the same from a place known as the ‘bread and butter state’ – Minnesota.
Minnesota Madness follows local spotheads Brandon Kirkland and Trapzilla taking on anything from bins to kink rails. The boys are joined by Vermonter Max Lyons and Utah HotBoi Jeff Hopkins, which makes us think the name Mischief Madness might have been a better title for this brilliantly entertaining insanity.
“The stoke is real and the crew seems to be enjoying every minute, hitting everything they can spot from picnic tables to handrails”
Following the true Minnesota vibe, the boys get deep into it. The stoke is real and the crew seems to be enjoying every minute, hitting everything they can spot from picnic tables to handrails. Whether this is due to the air in Minnesota or the Fireball that seems to have become a crucial addition to the boys’ snack box, we couldn’t say – but whatever it is that gets these boys hyped, were stoked as it’s resulted in some sick riding.
Taking a break from the ‘bread and butter state’ the crew hits up Trollhaugen in Wisconsin for one afternoon. Even if the place itself is based in the states, its Swedish-ish name (Trollhagen) translates into Troll Meadow, making it rather self-explanatory why this place has become a safe haven for mischief.
Towropes and rails, street spots and bails – Minnesota Madness captures the very essence of street riding. In addition to the state’s already warmly welcoming nickname, Minnesota is definitely high up there on our places to ride after seeing this edit!
