We've landed in New York!
The crew has been off the road for a few days while we wrap up Issue 02 and get ready to go to press.
Stay tuned in the coming days as I take us back through what we've been up to.
Also don't forget to check out our antics at #PleaseDontDieTour.
Canada (part 1)
As soon as the Festival of Speed was over, we packed up the car and headed north for British Columbia. We traded the product toss for what little bit of daylight was left, driving through the night to catch the last two days of the Giant's Head Freeride.
Summerland was, as usual, the most beautiful place I've been all year. It's hard to beat three days of closed road riding, noonday swimming at the lake, and partying by moonlight.
I managed to walk away form the weekend unscathed, but Quentin took a spill behind me on the fastest section of the road. [PSA: Let the heavier rider lead.] Let this serve as a public apology for putting.
Jonah hopped in the front seat of Alex's car for a few follow runs, hanging out the window, and snapping photos.
Matt K was wise enough to stay off his ankle and opted instead to hang out at Dead Man's corner where riders were met with a wave of pinecones that all but blocked out the sun.
Northern Californian Byron Essert navigated the elements to bring him a first place finish in the hands-down race. Even cooler than that was the freestyle session we had the night before at the campsite, where, by moonlight, we became Lil B and Day-Z.
More to come!
Good luck out there.
Please don't die.
