On Sat i headed up to cove and had a few runs with one of the new locals at my spot, After a few runs (its still wet at cove!) and a quick road gap session we headed over to his house whats just a few miles up the road and hit his road jump with a 25 foot gap, The kickers super short and looks a bit nasty but we blasted down the fire road and hit it up and cleared the gap and then some, A few more hits later and we were tucking it sweet and landing in the 30 plus range, I hope he builds more stuff and and makes a run out of the road gap section @ some point, Stunt building this week for a photo shoot, hope it works after all the effort thats going in to it.
i went and rode a skate park last night with one of the Vandal clothing family bmx guys J, I have never done any park riding and so it was real fresh for me and i was way off point! lol, still i had a lot of fun at the private park and i hope to meet up and give it another bash again as its a real change and its good to mix things up and progress even if it is little steps each time. So thanks to J from Vandal for letting us come and spin about the park and i will be back soon to master some more areas of it.
Yes former Clump rider has been off the radar for a while but his doing his moto thing since been dropped from Kona doing the AMA national hare and hound series, No word if his going to be putting any MTB stuff out this year and his sites just about dead.. But he has a new sponsor worth a blog.. He now rides for Bravo Condoms! lol, you could not make that shit up.. http://www.bravocondoms.com/pages/bravo_profile_dunne
so south west extreme had its grand opening and a 4x race, some changes will be made to the track before the NPS round, but so far so good and with some changes it should be cool, as for me, turned up, did a few runs, felt ok, got a flat, fixed it and then the wind came in, got blown around a bit and was going to call it a day but raced for fun, got the most shit gates ever in all the motos but lucked out with a strong first straight to win all my motos, Got in the final and got my gate a little better and got the snap. only some bmxer turned 4x racer in clips got past me and i was holding second till the only fully carved an inside line us hardtails could not do (see head cam, this tracks bumpy), but on the way out of the turn he cut my line and slowed me down, now i was third and getting passed to drop to 4th!, got my pump on through the whoops and entered the last section side by side , out gunned him to the line for third, GOPRO head cam of the track in practice. http://www.pinkbike.com/video/74076/
