This year we are looking in to finding some new spots to shoot, im lucky to live on the edge of the exmoor national park and also see Dartmoor's national park area from my house, but to find never before shot riding we are scouting further in to the wilderness and this also means a lot more hike a bike sessions this summer, So for this i dont want to be riding a big lid, but at the same time when you do find a cool drop or section its not best to be only riding in a sk8 lid and no neck brace when your hours away from a A&E dep, So we got an open face for scouting new ground and also for my flowing singletrack sessions at cove.

GT proto slopestyler

GT ss proto, no info.. click the pic for a full view..


Elbry on his brand: VANDAL :
we're forming the 09 VANDAL FAMILY now, Everyone is an individual, and we'll keep it that way, steering away from a "team" look or corporate vibe that so many brands have in mtbing/bmx, We want to make it a very core, rider-based "family" rather than just a sponsor that someone rides for. so we're obviously being very particular with who we bring on board, we dont want to sponsor every kid and his gran and we dont sponsor wakeboarders!lol, The company will be heavily influenced by skateboarding and snowboarding styles like it always has and we will have two fresh designs coming out next month,

See our myspace for further updates as well as on this blog. http://www.myspace.com/vandalblog

Good times

The organic tracks now back open and riding real well, lower slopes so fast! Real nice right now after a bit of clearing away of the winter dump of trees, We also hit barnstaple and the park trails, only the smaller line was open as lip work was being done, but it was still a blast to get some trail time in and got me pumped on riding trails again this summer on my new bike.. Talking of new bikes, my new frame should be with me in less than two weeks! sweet!!

Interview now up @ moredirt

trail update

park trails

I was up at my spot (cove) on monday and tuesday, The main lines now open!, mud free (almost) and has a few odd changes mid run... i have not built the changes but we will keep them for now.. Road crossings now open! first jump in the lines still out of action as the lips soft, but the rest of the trails packed and tree free. road crossing run will now stay open till the wet weather comes back when we will close it again to save the still new soft lips from getting trashed. Today we hope to get up to the organic track to clear and get it rocking again and then were off to barnstaple to ride some trails.. Yes Park trails are back! In the pitch and put area! So im not sure for how long, so we are going to hit them while its dry and get back in to riding some trails again ready for the summer.

Haldon sold out..

Went to haldon this week, Its a fun spot on a hardtail but it rides shit on a fully, Loads of Uni guys with lots of padding and trying to look glamour in troy lids and tinted lens goggles giving it the Hollywood b.s..lol.
Me i was wearing a flannel, jeans and vans, no pads, no lid on my hardtail and riding that top section like a pump track..(dont pedal, you dont need to pedal) wheres the danger and gnarly lines? Even the bank wall at the bottom has been dug in to a lame roller.. the new big road gap at the bottom has been removed and it turns out the talk was just that, no riders have jumped it.. plus even the top jump has had its landing moved in to make it smaller.., lets push it out and move forward! Has haldon sold out! this spot was badass back in the day.. So if your going to Haldon bring your spade and a hardtail..

never sell out..
