Video: BJ Baldwin Takes To The Streets Of Havana In Recoil 4

High action video with today’s racing stars are the talk of the town. For off-road enthuisasts, the Recoil video series with BJ Baldwin has been this fix. In the latest installment, Recoil 4, BJ heads to Havana, Cuba to catch some air.

While the rest of Hollywood uses green screens, cranes and cars on rails to replicate jaw-dropping stunts, all six massive stunts in “Recoil” are real and the collaborative result of BJ working with legendary freestyle motocross and Nitro Circus star turned filmmaker Andy Bell. Bell challenged Baldwin’s courage and the laws of gravity daily to execute jumps previously reserved only for motorcycles.

“We scouted the stunts believing if we could pull it off on a motorcycle, we could challenge BJ’s manhood enough that he would try them,” said Bell. “BJ pushed that truck beyond what anyone else would dream of doing and it resulted in some of the most intense action Cuba has seen in decades.”

Among the outrageous stunts Baldwin performed was a record breaking, 191-foot jump down a narrow residential street, a 110-foot jump across a downed bridge and a triple-step-down stair gap with a 20-foot vertical drop in Old Havana.

“It’s one thing to rip across desert terrain in Baja, it’s a completely other beast to fly through the streets of Havana at 100 mph,” said Baldwin. “There’s simply no discreet way to launch a million dollar, 6,000-pound trophy truck down a residential street that typically is reserved for vintage 1950’s era sedans. We blew the locals’ minds. They had no clue a truck could fly.”

The team only had five days to shoot on the island, but with the help of the local government and BJ’s sponsors: Toyo Tires, Monster Energy, Rigid Industries, and King Shocks, they were able to pull off all the stunts.

Until next time we will need to wait and see where in the world BJ will end up! Where do you think he should go next? Tell us in the comments below!
