Dark Fest

Check out Aggy’s Full DarkFest Photo Gallery

I have to apologize. We have been sitting on Ale Di Lullo’s full DarkFest photo gallery for a couple of weeks now. With the epic Digging for Galena video dropping, we didn’t really want to clog your social media feed with so much Aggy radness. Now that you have all watched Digging for Galena though, the time is right to revisit Aggy’s trip to South Africa for the first stop of the Fest Series, DarkFest.

Dark Fest was Aggy’s first major outing back on a big bike since his crash at Rampage and he wasn’t wasting any time making it seem like he hadn’t been off the bike at all, slaying the beyond massive jumps and overcoming his fear of heights just scaling the drop-in ramp.

Dark Fest has been an amazing journey for me, not only was it my first trip to Africa, but it was also my first time truly back in the saddle after my hip injury at Rampage last year. Crew vibes are always key on trips like this, and with the Fest Series it’s always guaranteed that energy is going to be high!

Our Ride When We Want to Ride motto ensures that we only ride when conditions are safest, and this allows us all to ride as progressively as possible. We suffered slightly in South Africa with the weather, luckily though there were no shortage of things to do on the rain days. We got to touch elephants, dive with sharks, surf and even get a quick tattoo to remember the trip by.”

Aggy Touches Down at Dark Fest

Fest Series fans rejoice! The first stop on the 2017 event calendar has arrived, and we’ve just received our first update from photographer Ale Di lullo who has joined the invite-only list of athletes in South Africa at the Pure Darkness compound for Dark Fest.

“I can’t believe we’re in Africa right now, the lines here at #DarkFest are seriously some of the gnarliest features I’ve ever seen!” – Graham Agassiz

The Dark Fest lines and features are etched in most MTB fans’ minds, I mean it’s hard not to think of Matt McDuff’s Loop of Doom crash when you look at photos from the site. Even Aggy is a little nervous “Trying to get over my fear of heights, not easy when you’re standing on top of a 75ft roll in! Huge props to everyone involved in putting this masterpiece together!”

Ale and Aggy will be updating us over the next few days, so stay tuned for more insane images and riding.
