Dirty Words: Go Belgian or Go Home!

11.01.2013 //

In the same way that urban American kids played basketball because schoolyards were their escape from a dead-end life, Belgian kids raced their heavy bikes on those greasy roads, “crossing” over fences and ditches as a short-cut to the cold barns and dim factories where they could find work.

10.31.2013 //

Take away the helicopter, the film crews, and the whole production of Red Bull Rampage and you would still have athletes hucking huge lines. While the sport may need the elevation of a corporate partnership to gain mass appeal and the sponsorships that come with it, the riders are here because they love what they do.

I had barely even had a chance to catch my breath from a contest trip in the U.S. when I got back to the Sunshine Coast and met up with my good friends from the Coastal Crew.

10.26.2013 //

Well, the 2013 season is in the history books. After last month’s World Championships, I spent almost six weeks back home getting into the swing of a normal life and routine.
