Megavalanche 2008 - PERU Megavalanche 2008 - PERU
This is a story of the past Megavalanche Races in Peru and what we are planning to do for the new edition of 2008.

This story starts in 2005 when it was the first year that the Megavalanche Cup came to Peru. That year the downhill scene in Peru changed. It was the first time we raced everybody at the same time. In edition we saw for first time top ranked racers racing in Peru: Cedric Gracia, Fabian Barel, Rene Wildhaber, George Atherton, Franck Parolin and many other top ranked bikers from South America.

Returning Home from the Atomlab Supersession and a few words with Tyler McCaul Returning Home from the Atomlab Supersession and a few words with Tyler McCaul
Day 8-

Waking up on Sunday morning for the last breakfast at the holly Woodward West was a painful one for most people, physically that is. All the riders were beat and as well were the organizers and photographers from the Supersession so it was a foggy morning and great ending for the 3 day stop of our trip. After breakfast we stayed a couple extra hours and rode the enterprise skate park and the hanger with the rest of the Canada crew, then packed ‘er up and started our drive up North. We drove (actually just I drove) for hours until we couldn’t see anymore because of how tired we were and then ended up stopping in a little town about 30 min south of Aptos and spent the night at another motel 6.

CLEVELAND, OH - Though the weather outside is frightful, on January 11th, 2008 Ray’s Indoor Park in Cleveland, OH will be more than delightful! Shaums and the MMR crew of coaches will hold a one-day “closed session” of Freeride Skills. “ I have been to Rays twice over the past couple years and each time I see the park continually growing and getting more fun to ride.” MMR owner and founder, Shaums March, continues, “after discussing ideas with Ray, I instantly saw the potential for them to host Urban Freeride clinics. Riding outside this time of year is tough, but there is still a demand to ride and learn!”

Ty Evans Promo 2007 - 14 Year old shredder from Kelowna B.C. Ty Evans Promo 2007 - 14 Year old shredder from Kelowna B.C.
Hey, my name is Greg Christie and I have recently helped film and edit a short promo of my buddy Tyler Evans. I have known Ty for about 3 years now and have been riding with him for 2. Ty has progressed a lot over the last season, and it’s just so fun to watch one of your best buddy’s looking to step it up and take it to a new level. If you knew Ty you would know he is either on his bike at the time or thinking about his bike. He is just a fun person to be around on, or off the trail. The kid at only 14 years old is a great rider, with potential. And you gotta love his attitude towards our sport. This summer was the greatest time of my life riding with him. And I look forward to the next to come.

Monday - The story behind the film. Monday - The story behind the film.
Monday is a video about enjoying riding that I had an idea for about a year ago. Mike Bentham and I have shot a few trials/biking videos, and in the last while he had been riding a variety of styles besides trials which is what he's mainly known for. The idea was to incorporate as many different styles of riding as we could over a couple days of shooting in the summer of 2007 and this is what came out of that. Shot in HD over a few days in the summer of 2007 and with Mike Bentham riding each bike really showcases his abilities on just about anything with 2 wheels. Downhill, Trials, Cross-country, park riding, BMX racing and just cruising.

Monday is what we all hope riding is about, fun.

End of Season Video End of Season Video
Well folks, the weather over here at the Pinkbike HQ has finally taken a turn for the colder side. It's either rain, rain, snow, or sunshine (then rain again). So, in the advent that the weather is unable to make its mind up, I decided to throw together a little "year end" video so to say. Basically, I took a bunch of footage that didn't make it into any prior videos, combined with some footage that was in prior videos, and with a hint of footage that I filmed on the fly.

A couple of years ago I landed in the 'new world' as a transplant from Europe. I had a few things I wanted to achieve in life, and top of that list was 'do more stuff'. I wasn't really sure what 'stuff' that would entail, and I hadn't really thought it through too much, but I guess I wanted it to be fun, cool, exciting, and maybe a little bit crazy. OK I admit it, to suit my legacy of mentalism and mayhem, I wanted pumping adrenaline, a rush, and the natural high of extreme sports.

MEGA AVALANCHE - Reunion Island, South Africa – December 1-3, 2007

The time had come. No turning back now. I was set for a front row start in a race format I had never entered before. There were 160 riders all starting at the same time on a 50-minute downhill.

The start was set for 9am. Call up for our grid positions was based on our heat race results at 8am. This sounds fine until you note that the drive to the top is at least 1 hour on a road with the tightest turns I had ever seen. Car sickness started to set in near the top.

The main stop of this trip is Supersessions 3 presented by Atomlab at Woodward West in Tehachapi, CA. Although this is California we are stopping in, it is probably colder than Vancouver Canada the majority of the time we are there. As you drive up, you're going through a residential area and then all of a sudden you hit two big parking lots on your left side and a bunch of big buildings/hangers with HUGE “WOODWARD WEST” billboards painted on them. This is Disneyland to way more people than just us mountain bikers; BMXers, skateboarders, fruit-booters, gymnasts (the little girls that bounce on the trampolines in the Olympics), and whatever other sports you can think of that would use this place. None the less there are 3 major categories at Woodward that we are going to cover: Business, Injuries, and Parties… everything you need to know will be covered in one of these 3 categories.

But we here at Orpheus Productions are never ones to stand still, so where Focus was rough, raw and in your face, re-Focus is polished, shot in High Definition, over a period of nine months, utilising a custom designed cablecam rig to bring you shots impossible to achieve using conventional methods.

Tomac Snyper 1401: Trail Bike of The Gods Tomac Snyper 1401: Trail Bike of The Gods
When future bike zealots erect their parts-enshrined pantheons to the gods of mountain biking no doubt the first temple they build will be in the name of (two-time world and 10-time national champion), John Tomac. Unfortunately, the legacy of mountain biking's first mullet-wearing rock star fell into a marketing vortex after his bike brand was purchased by American Bicycle Group—who promptly shelved production in favor of filling the world with more titanium road bikes. Last year, JT regained control of his namesake brand and is re-launching it in 2008 with three new state-of-the-art rigs: an XC race bike, a DH bike designed by Manitou founder Doug Bradbury, and a 140-mm dual suspension trail bike accurately named the Snyper.

We were all pretty beat from falling and I was beat from clicking my shutter button a few too many times (I was pretty trigger happy from the nice light in Reno) so we thought taking a day off would be a good idea. Since I was 8 years old watching Adam Sandler fight Bob Barker in Happy Gilmore, I've wanted to go watch the show. Myself, Ryan Meyer, Nick Meyer, and Joe Perrizzo attended the show. We spent 7 hours waiting in line starting at 6 am to try and get a chance to be on the show. It was worth of ever second.

Day 4- Welcome To Reno

We arrived in Reno late last night after pinning it over from Chico. Chico was amazing, I was super stoked that I got to shoot such a good set of jumps, definitely got some nuggs. Thanks Zach!

This morning we awoke to sunny skies, but it was freezing. I thought we were back in Vancouver for a second. (it's been snowing in Van I hear) Anyway Joe came into our room to inform us Caveman (Ben) was leaving to go home. Yesterday he fell walking down from the jumps and twisted his ankle pretty bad. Might be broken, by the way it had swelled and lack of movement he could do with it.
