"‘ARCHIVED’ is a collection of footage that I’ve been holding on to for the past few years – I had plans to make it into a larger project but ran into some medical issues earlier this year that cut the timeline short. It includes mostly footage of Jeff Purdy and myself with some guest clips of Mikey Birch, Gene Barclay and Zach Zeh. Enjoy!" - Sam Downs
Jeff Purdy made the most of the Philly area social distancing guidelines and restrictions by putting in some serious work on his bike! Despite uncertain times and a tumultuous past nine months, it's awesome to see how Jeff used the time to create so much great riding entirely in his own.

"When Ben from GT presented the idea of doing a short trip with Albert Mercado and Jeff Purdy to my hometown of Arizona, I knew immediately that I had to say yes. Albert has been a good friend of mine long before I was ever considered a professional videographer and his approach to riding and filming has always been one of my favorites. His unique ability to look at a spot and figure out that truly special move is incredible. Jeff, on the other hand, was rather new to me. After a bit of research and watching his INSANE Daily Grind section, I was more than excited to get started. Five days later and a bunch of classic AZ spots conquered, these two absolutely blew me away with their unmatched skill and the determination to get as many moves logged despite our short time together. I hope you enjoy what we’ve put together and I look forward to the next opportunity to film with these badasses again." - Ryan Chadwick, Filmer.
BMX FIRE FROM THE PHILLY STREETS - JEFF PURDY. Philly's Jeff Purdy has been on a tear lately! After a banger last part in Daily Grind's Rerouting DVD earlier this year, Jeff knocked out this video as a thank you to everyone that’s been supporting him the last year—including GT, Daily Grind, The Weekend BMX, and DNS BMX.
Jeff Purdy recently joined the DG and has been filming like crazy for our Rerouting DVD thats expected out in a few months and also his DNS DVD. I hate to say this is leftover footage because its so good, but here are some Jeff Purdy scraps! Dudes a beast!
