Hylands has been the practise ground for some of the best streets riders from the Mid-West, a cauldron of talent that has been seen in many a Videograss movie. Well, it turns out that Hylnads is more than just a practise ground and more of a petri dish of gnarly kids kids that have been dropped off at Hylands to keep themselves entertained whilst their parents go off to work...or to just get away from their kids for the day. Either way, it has in turn produced some killer riders and this looks like the next Gen....
"When our parents needed a break for the day, they brought us to Hyland Hills. They must have always had better things to do, because usually we were there 6 days a week. Two rope-tows kept us in line and carried thousands a bodies every hour up this garbage pile of a hill. It made us stronger, faster, and more instinctual. But for all of its pitfalls, Hyland positively influenced our sense independence and informed our lives as filmmakers today." - Billy Bjork
