Kyle got in touch to say they’ve got a blog up and running for their spot. Only a post so far but sure there’s more to come – click the link!
not really, the weather’s been a bit shite, hopefully vanier park dries up for it’s contest this weekend. if you’re around the lower mainland or vancouver island check it out! http://rideonagain.com/ in revtrails news, i made a new vid just for Cretaceo! ;) just teasin’s kids! viva la roller!
I thought this was real cool. It’s a headcam edit by Vinyl’s Tom Arkus of all the spots he sampled whilst over in France.
Finally that kind of monsoon period we had here is over! After some pretty intensive digging, it’s now crazy hot, good we have the river passing by not too far for the trail so that we can water the jumps… Anyways, time to ride! We had a pretty good session last Thursday riding (Marco “Cocis”, Albi “Gandi” & Myself “Champi”) and shooting with my buddy Matteo Ganora who always takes out some awesome stuff from his camera! Thanks Teo, enjoy the pics!

so after i got back from america it was woods time, i guess there isnt a trails season anymore, my friend the captain said you just gotta ride when you can and dig when you can, and thats what weve been doing. another friend of mine says, we live in a small place, with nothing good to ride, so why not just get drunk and make amazing jumps. true words! the woods are well, i say finished, but they are never finished, there is this little bit of berm to clay, and then one landing to dial and shityourpants line will be done for this year. pub lines coming on a treat too. it still blows my mind whenever i walk down the woods and see what weve achieved in less than 2 years. feb 2010 when we first put spade into dirt, and with not so great mud, patchy clay, crazy weather and a few dedicated individuals, we have made such an awesome place. so thank you to everyone who has helped from the start and has ever put in a shovel or lifted a barrow. a few more days of sun and the trails will be riding, this time, all the way to the bottom….
After a week or two of some insane heat, looking like it was august in the beginning of may, we have had almost a month of shitty weather, which might have been good for my exams and my thesis preparation but not so much for riding the trail!! Anyways I cought the occasion to make a bit of renovation on parts damaged by the rain, and finish some new features which i hope we can ride soon!
Not so stoked on how some people who define themselves as locals pretty much disappear when it’s time to dig, well I guess you know what I mean! Anyways, thanks to the ones who came up to give me a hand! I hope to post some riding pics soon!
Oh and last thing, I would like to thank Alessandro Falci hand tools for his support, he’s been real cool to supply us with pretty much any tool a trail digger could need, I was pretty stoked about that!
Pics by myself, compact camera, sorry for the shitty quality!
Not really, still took me 10 log in attempts! got it now… anywho! summer has been making a sloooooooooow start ’round these parts and some work has been going on. Some of the new kids have been hell bent on building a roll in/ start area for the main line and after some careful revisions that left luke with another dislocated shoulder it’s starting to come together. Hopefully we’ll get things fixed up proper this week so we can actually have a sesh next weekend! cotton, you should come! Here a short crappy video with music you’re gonna hate! Mostly riding in the new bowl section and a couple testers of the new roll in but for some reason it won’t let me embed the video player so you’ll have to click here kids!
