Here is the latest TOUR LYFE packed full with dirt thrashing featuring Tom & Mick Kirkman, Joe Dickson, Josh Maddocks, Theo Ackworth, John Burton, Ant Wilson, Andy Packer, Andy Milenkovic & Radfuck Warren.
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.
The World Championships of Mountainboarding is happening this weekend at the Bugs Boarding mountainboarding centre in Gloucester, England. The jumps are large, weather looks good, and some of the world’s best will be there to show off their talent in front of the savvy British crowd. Despite losing the headlining sponsor MBS Europe has kept the event going by headlining the event themselves.
Those of us that are not able to go can receive updates from the BFC & MBS Europe’s own Rhys Crilley. Rhys will be tweeting updates from the event in between checking his facebook. Check out http://twitter.com/rhyscrilley for updates on everything from what everyone is wearing to what Rhys’ favorite grab is. Who knows maybe next year a live webcam or video through the power of skype?
Through the power of music our world has learned how to overcome tremendous adversity. Music gives a voice to those without and has demonstrated over and over again its ability to have a positive impact on the lives it touches. African mountainboarder Benedict Ewan Sisulu Tweedie is reaching out with his new music project The Unicorn Warriors. Their blend of kazoo playing and whimsical attitude creates a euphoric sound not heard since the likes of Gene and Dean Ween.
Benjamin is well excited innit for the project saying,”I was tired of getting laid all the time with my hardcore metal band so I decided to give myself some rest and start something that no girl would ever think is cool.” Jah bless Big Ben and may your unicorn fly high above the clouds and reach the stars it so desperately needs to survive.-The Commodore "we dig so you don't have to"
