Dane Searls: Giants of Dirt 3
- DEC 20, 2011
- About this Video
- Witness the progression of BMX dirt riding, courtesy of Aussie Dane Searls. The Giants of Dirt Project began in 2010 when Searls brought the idea to Unit Clothing, his sponsor. Over the next 12 months, together they built and tested the line of jumps in Boonah (west of the Gold Coast, Queensland) on the farm of fellow Unit rider and FMX Pro Matt Schubring. Sheer determination saw Dane push through many painful crashes and setbacks, including the devastating Queensland floods of 2010. Dane finally completed his life-long goal in November 2011 by riding and pulling tricks through the entire set of jumps. Giants of Dirt 3 is the realization of Dane's dream.
Two days after fulfilling his dream, Dane was involved in an accident and suffered critical head injuries, placing him in a coma for five days. Dane passed away on November 25, 2011 due to injuries sustained. His death sent shock waves through the BMX community and he will be long remembered as an amazingly kind person and as a professional athlete who pushed the boundaries of the sport of BMX.
