Just signed a new 1 race deal pretty stoked on it. Everyone is all about the olympic hype, so I too went out and hustled up a corporate sponsorship to keep up with all these goons. Stoked on it for sure. Driving overnight to Chula Vista after work Friday night arriving to CV at maybe 5am? Racing Saturday then driving straight back home to get back to work on Sunday morning. Beastmode fools act like you know. Click the picture to blow it up and see the new hype, and if you think I didnt submit it hahahahaha yes I did.

Yep. Amazingly after riding the old RR park for years, they moved to a new location which was farther from the old location and I moved farther from my old house. So the new location is already years old and was only new to me because I never drive that far to ride for the most part. It was well worth it though. The session was pretty hectic and the park is fairly small but I got some fun time in and hadnt ridden a good mini ramp in some time. It wasnt the best mini Id ever ridden but it was dry and the session was solid. Headed up with Nyquist in his green machine prius so I think the bridge toll cost more than the gas we consumed which was kinda nice. Met up with a few SJ heads there and things were fun. Andrew Lang was going nuts on the box along with another UFO who was laying waste to that box jump as well. Highlights were Nyquist flirting with the upper lights along the rafter, it was good to see but scary all at the same time. I did absolutely nothing but a few turndowns and some high airs, and wrapped up the day with a few flyout barspins on a borrowed bike. I said Id lift my seat up cuz trucks over dirt are pretty sick, but well see. Droppin off my racket to get restrung today so that will be kinda nice to get that all done and the tennis center near my house has like leagues and stuff so I might check that out and see if it fits my schedule, been wanting to play more and the new racket mojo should keep me interested. Contest at LCRSP has been moved to the 24th aka SATURDAY. Take note and Ill see you there. Thats all for now.

Im gonna keep this up until I get forgetful about it. So in my salute to this set of grips that arguably should have been replaced about 3 months ago I can only think of the good times. Uncle Nyquist offered em to me about 4 different times and I always feel weird accepting things from him, but they were unique Carhartt grips which is a denim work clothing type company so I was kinda stoked that Id have a one off set of grips. After needing em for awhile I caved and accepted em. Soft and fairly thin, greyish color so not a bad look on my bike. They were the best pair of grips ive had in some good long time even when they became a grip set going from 2 grips to 3 grips I still loved em the same. They throttled from time to time, but always were ready for another run through the trails or a day at the park. When I finally went down and fired out the watts gap, it was these grips that accompanied me. I broke a pedal that day, but the grips? They were there for me. First 360's and flips in the post office hip line. Again the good ol carhartts held true. I am going back to an old favorite grip the cleveland signatures, and Im sure it will be a good trip with them, but the carhartts have been a blast and sure any grip could have been the grip to get it all done but facts are facts. Carhartts got a special mojo on em for sure. Til we shred again fellas!

Hahaha packin my shit and gettin a hardtail apparently. The meeting went ehhhhh today. I blame myself, I brought along this noob rider hoping to show that some jumps at LCRSP could help less skilled riders than myself to become better not just on bikes but better people as well. The kid just didnt relay the point well enough I guess. Maybe next time Ill be more selective, maybe an accomplished rider with a long track record to prove I mean business. Yep thats what ill do. Anyway so I agreed to be a part of a workgroup, and basically see how the group sees things playing out. I know what I want and hopefully they see that Im right. LOL In all seriousness jokes aside. The meeting went pretty ok. I like Steve the director and he seemed sincere in wanting to help me out with my aspirations of some dirt jumps. How to go about it may get tricky but thats juts city politics. For now, hang tight and keep drivin over 17 to Aptos.

You ever be on the edge in a good way? I feel like Im at a point right now where things are going to start moving at a fast pace and it may come off as a blur but will be great when its all settled in. City work has been minimal IMO but at the same time Ive been putting in heavy work, if that makes sense. Camp wrapped up and things just havent slowed down really, BMX birthday party tomorrow for a camp kid should be fun, work weeks have been long and will start a double up routine very soon as I start working into some other operations at Cunningham. Longer hours and more work put in will stack paper at a faster pace :) Boutta book this London ticket when I get around to it, Heading to Chula to qualify in for the worlds in a few weeks. Did I mention the city meetings for the next project Im pushing through the pipe? Busyness. Wouldnt have it any other way though Im pretty sure. Even been playin tennis with Matty, J, and Alicia. As soon as we get Matt a lil more skills we should be the next big thing LOL Thats all for now check back as all this stuff slowly develops. jyeah
