the gang assembled Oct 15th up in Vermont for some serious dirt jump and park action. Johnson VT was first to go down and the layout was sick! outdoor park with fun quarters and spines and the dirt jumps had something for everyone. the cold weather didn't hold anyone back as everyone riding was throwing down. good to see all the Sinister's too.they were everywhere! here's a few pics I took of the Johnson action.
after that sesh, the crew headed over to the Stowe jumps and oh my gawd! the work that Irie Cycle head honch Hardy and his loyal crew have done is amazing! the place has a little bit of everything and it's all legit with the town! the weather was cold but the riders persevered! Local legend Kyle Ebbet showed up from nearby and ripped the trails alongside the rest. He was amazed at the talent and they way guys like Clint Macmahon were throwing. "Clint's like Cam McCaul, he's a giver" Kyle commented after Clint flowed through tricking the big line where everyone else was initially happy to just hit.
Knight Ide was amazing as well, despite him being 10-15 years older than most the riders(except Kyle and Hardy), Dane Berke was relentless, tricking and absolutely killing it, even throwing supermans over the big line. Derek Stevens despite being a little more of a park specialist really shined. he was smoother than ever and boosted so high! him, Sasha , Dane and Zach Fauklner were throwing cool tricks off the 8 foot ladder drop too.
And the creator himself, the often controversial Hardy was easily one of the smoothest riders of the day and it made us proud he was on his DNA. you see, he can ride whatever bike he wants and he loves his DNA.
other members of the "Sinister Family", like Lyndon Ide were not to be outdone. He snapped a chain yet still rode the whole pack chainless!
and the other half of the Stevens clan was out there, Jarrod Stevens. New Sinister team manager, Doug Falbusch was pushing himself to get the "dirt jump thing" and improved greatly.
Production manager, Rob Westover was on the DL with a broken wrist but drove kids up and helped organize everything while he rode the jumps in his mind. you'll be back soon robbie!
We also added a new rider to the jump squad, "ragin Rocco" so keep your eyes peeled for him aboard a DNA real soon!
a big thank you to Hardy and everyone else who made all this possible! we can't thank you enough! Check out the photos here and in the new photo gallery!
