My lord…. Cream Teas and Jam


Last weekend Knockhill played host to Round 1 of Cream Teas & Jam. Started by the BFC a few years back, this event was designed to be a fun, relaxed event much like rail jams you might see here in the States. Anyhow this year riders were throwing down, 270’s every where, some 360’s off the dragon rail and all kinds of other madness. It looks so good it hurts.

Sorry Rhys I had to snake this from YumYumBFC.com, the footage was just too good not to be shared. Keep an eye out for photos & video from round two which goes down on July 17th.

One 5 riders still mountainboard

Despite the lack of media produced by One 5 in 2009 – 2010, most of us are still riding. Rumor has it there may even be another One 5 film for 2011 with some international riding…. then again it’s just a rumor. Another rumor is Justin Dersham dropped all board sports after spending an entire winter with skiers in British Columbia.

Govies park always has and always will be the most accessible ride stop here in Denver, with a variety of drops, great grass to carve and lets not forget that long brick wallride. The wallride is my personal favorite, with a mellow bank up to the 90 degree wall and 200 feet of wall to choose from. This wall has lots of potential, I recently learned a few new tricks on it and I think more will come.

Brandon & Benton recently learned how the internet works and created a lovely little Tumblr site to post random stony thoughts, http://shlumburglars.tumblr.com. Expect to see a few more short web edit from them this session.

We all got down up in Empire last weekend for the first time since the official opening of the park when everything was muddy and almost unrideable. Photographer Dag Larson was on hand to get some shots for a photo project and had a list of things we wanted to shoot but mainly some airs on the quarter, a few sequences, and a handplant. I think we accomplished everything he wanted… I still have yet to see the final photos. Dag was kind enough to pass me a few shots.

Slacker

……It’s true…. i’m a huge slacker, my apologize to all the readers, doubt there are any of you left. I have a ton of great things are happening with me and the mountainboard scene here in CO. Best of all the season has totally kicked off and i’m stoked to get back up to the Dirt Empire this weekend and slay the new Never Summer gap(see below).

Early this spring Matty Kenoyer spent time in Empire moving dirt and taking some of Altitude Sickness’s ideas and molded a whole new course which looks similar to European mountainboard centre. All the upgrades to the park and long list of event begin held has attracted a few sponsors the largest being Vitamin Water. All these new sponsorships have allowed Altitude Sickness to give away some real healthy cash prizes at their events, including the $3K cash purse for the Altitude Cup in September. While were on the topic of events the first Rider Fest was held two weeks ago, it was essentially the official open of the new park. Unfortunately I unable to attend the Rider Fest as I was getting some much needed R&R in Panama straight lounging.

Beds are overrated, i'll take a hammock any day. Lounging in Bocas Del Toro.
