Kovarik Sessions Thredbo 2013:


He does not slow down... ever.
He doesn't take shit from anyone (apart from Claire).
He doesn't like white t-shirts.
He doesn't like huckers.
He is immortal (I think)....
He is Chris Kovarik.



Claire Buchar 2013:


Claire Buchar is a long term DH shredder who is loved by all and she is one of the most dedicated people I know. Here is a brief look into how she ticks and also some sweet riding at Thredbo, Australia. Hope you enjoy.



NS Dynamics 2013:


NS DYNAMICS are downhill suspension tuning legends. So Legendary they deserve a clip... a good, cheesy rokkin clip... I hope y'all don't mind I stepped up the anti a tad with this one.

WARNING- If you don't like slomo, effects, music, downhill, groms, Chris Kovarik, Claire Buchar, Nigel Reeve, Intense bikes or Kona or anything fun best you not watch this....

Thanks to Jake Lucas for some extra shots.... legend!

 Really was expecting some hardcore death metal lunacy music to go with Kovarik's video but I was actually pleasantly surprised with the music choice for it. PROPS Smile

 I think he insists on hardcore death metal type music in all his videos, pretty sure that band is of the sort but i agree the song isn't bad. That video was sickkkk! Chris is fast as hell and always looks like he's going as hard as possible, foot out, flat out, hugee two wheel drifts everywhere. The lines in his Whistler edit show his unique line vision. I think the late Eleanor Roosevelt said it best, this edit was "all about speed - hot, nasty bad-ass speed."

 I heard nothing but good things about this pair. Nice to see a front page post of them. I think they're running DH race clinics at the SIlver Star Momentum BC Cup.

 I have gone to his clinics here in Australia, they are well worth it, even just to see the man in action.

 If not physically, certainly intellectually. Chuck Norris is a devout Baptist Republican who thinks children should be taught creationism in school and he denies global warming. Chuck Norris sucks, don't insult Kovarik like that.

 Well, even the creator of the global warming theory denies it, so here Chuck may actually be right...

 Nukeproof Generator DH wheels. I guess if he'd got them in stock Nukeproof yellow you'd never know the difference because they'd just be a blur of yellow as he flew past in a cloud of dust.
