As you read this the Downhill Division crew is en route to Puerto Rico for the 2015 Guajataca Downhill. This is one of the most attended races in the world which always makes for a wild event. Get your island vibes going with last year's video below and stay tuned for updates from the Caribbean!
We could not have scripted a better way for this race to go. With Sector 9 riders claiming 4 out of the 4 semi-finalists spots it was a party before it even ended! Congratulations to Jimmy Riha for beating out his teammates and taking home the $5000!
This is Almabtrieb! Our favorite race on the European circuit resides in the hills of Neukirchen, Germany and always draws the world's most talented riders. Take a peak at this past summer's event which saw four Downhill Division riders in the top 10, including Jimmy Riha taking 3rd place.
Yes, it's about time that Louis got his own glove. He'll ride anything and kill it, but he really knows when he likes something. If it's lightweight, breathable, and performs well, he's all over it, which is exactly what he steered us towards when designing this glove. If you see Louis on a hill, give him a gloved hand high-5! Yes it comes with a bag too.
The 3rd Annual Turkey Slide Jam and Safety Clinic was a perfect send-off before the Thanksgiving holiday. We were very pleased to see so many up and coming skaters who were concerned with safety and road awareness. Enjoy this video from MuirSkate and remember to always skate safe but most importantly have fun! Happy Holidays!
A new take on the Gullwing Sidewinder Trucks has them whipping and carving under the newest additions to the Sector 9 Mini Series. The Barra Soap and Skatepark are helping to translate a surf style turn onto pavement. The bottom line is... these boards are fun!
The Redbull Steep Crest quietly went off last week in San Francisco as a test event for future contests. We were hyped to have the Downhill Division's Louis Pilloni, Chance Gaul, and Ross Druckrey invited to compete. Watch from the eyes of Louis Pilloni as he claims 2nd place in the downhill race.
