The Australian leg of the world tour is always a big deal for any travelling rider. With fast hills, clean beaches, and a world cup event, it’s hard not to have a good time. In previous years we have hosted two world cups to make the long trip even more worthwhile and exciting. While Mt Keira was cancelled this year, I thought it was no excuse not to squeeze in a international class race to kick off the trip, having fun, drinking piss and racing your mates from around the world.
Two years in the making, and a success on the festival circuit, “Dalua Downhill” is going to have its public premiere on May 28th in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The documentary film follows Dalua for two years as he strives to become world champion. It looks like a well done film and is definitely worth checking out. (more…)

This was unexpected.
Les from Rayne hit me up not a month before and asked if a plane ride into sunshine, jungles, and warm ocean water in WINTER sounded good to me. I offered unspeakable things for this opportunity. So I packed a bag with all of my film gear (looking a little like Paris Hilton – just a little) and made my way to YVR to depart.
Coming into San Juan gave a beautiful view of the city. Trees interspersed even in the ‘downtown’ areas. Nothing like Canada/America (at least what I’ve seen). Les picked me up, along with about six other skaters in need of a lift from the airport. Oh, and there were already about five of them in the van. You could imagine 12 skaters, gear, leathers, film equipment, all driven by Rayne’s own broken-wristed chaperone Les Robertson! (more…)

It seems like everybody is trying to get into the wheel game these days. One of the latest is Skidro Wheels, out of Whiterock BC and affiliated with the BC Collective. As such, the Collective put together this promo video for the first wheel from Skidro. (more…)
