Hey Mountain bike friends. It has been a while since I checked in. I have been super busy traveling back and forth to Europe (6 times since May 1) for several different mountain bike events, spreading the mountain bike cheer.
Some of those have included, Lago del Garda “bike Festival” in Itlay , Willingen Festival Germany, Wintergerg Dirt Miester Fest, Germany, A camp in Chatel, France with my good buddy Holger Meyer, the Aoriaz Roof’n Slopestyle, The UCI World Championships and several World cups, and The Adidas Slopestyle in Saalbach, Austria, where Hans Rey and I hosted the event live on www.freecaster.com.
Between all of these Euro events, back in Whistler, I some how managed to put together my own video part for the first time ever. Well, with a lot of help from the Collective boys Darcy and CJ. Stay tuned for that one shortly.
Wade Simmons and I put on some camps in Whistler, to help our fellow bikers get down the mountain in a safer more stylish fashion. I can’t forget Crankworx. It went off as usual.
I just returned from Eurobike that biggest bike industry trade show in the world.
After several days in a trade show hall, I went and rode some sweet single track in Alpbachtal, Austria, with my fiance Willow. Yup, that is right, I finally got the balls to go for it. She rocks, if you didn’t already know that.
Somehow in the midst of all of this travel and excitement, I managed to have one of the best summers of riding ever. The trail up here in Gods country were all time. My buddies, Willow, her brothers and I, did a ton of single track (well, BC style, steep and deep with hits everywhere) riding and several awesome days in the Whistler bike park. As usual there are more cool new trails and stunts to check out up in the park, so if you haven’t come by lately, it is worth a ride for sure.
If you haven’t had enough riding yet, come to Wagrain, Austria on Oct 4-5, rip it up with me and check out the new Saint from Shimano while you are at it.
