Check Burton's resident rail technicians Ethan Deiss and Zak Hale throwing down in the first part of Burton Presents 2016.

The air is getting cooler, the leaves are picking up rusty hues and our thoughts are drifting towards snowy peaks and white-tipped pine trees. Winter is definitely on its way, and the first part from Burton's continuation of their 'Burton Presents' series cements that fact.

Ethan Deiss and Zak Hale, who were once fledgling rail riders shepherded under the wing of Jeremy Jones, are now more than capable of pulling off their own part. Ethan Deiss opens up proceedings with a hefty helping of fun spots, big gaps and technical tricks, and picks apart urban landscapes from the Midwest to far off lands including Japan, Russia, and Bosnia.

Zak Hale rounds out the section with some huge rail to bank lines and even a spot of backcountry ripping, and there wasn't a Ken Block (Monster) truck in sight!

All round, this is a solid first offering for the Burton Presents 2016 series, and we're looking forward to seeing the next section already.
