Adidas Hematoma-Beaten and Abused! Adidas Hematoma-Beaten and Abused!
Shoes for some people, can be a dime a dozen. To me, they are one of my most important riding tools-call them equipement if you will. Nobody likes shoes that make their feet hurt while they ride, or slip off your pedals, or destroy your toes when they get a little too close to a rock while pinning it. I have a long history with clip in bike shoes and have finally found one that completely satisfies my DH needs.

Memories of Sea Otter Memories of Sea Otter
Hard to believe that I am back and just a short while ago on Sunday, April 8th, we left Calgary at aprox 7:30 am in the new Calgary Cycle Truck pulling the team trailer with all of our bikes. By Monday April 9th we arrived in Santa Cruz, landed on the beach and it just so happened that it was the local's spring break. As nice as it would have been to stay and “site see”, our destination still lay on the other side of the bay outside of Monterey.

So I’m in my truck's bed ready for bed, canopy over head. I’m in my sleeping bag, about ready to call it a day, I guess I could call it day three of my Trials of Life Canadian tour. Day 1, I drove most of the way across BC to Cranbrook, spent the night, and then performed at a local middle school; grabbed lunch with Scott from Gerick Sports before driving to Lethbridge.

With less than 2 weeks remaining to the inaugural Ukbikepark/ Torico summer series race in Dorset. The Ukbikepark team have just finished preparing the new track for what looks like is going to be a great race series. The track has seen some big modifications over the winter with additional features such as a much needed rock garden and a huge 30 foot table top being added, as well as rejuvenated berm sections and another 18 foot table top jump being added. The track has over 400feet of altitude drop and has a mixture of technical rooty sections, berms, rock sections and plenty of opportunities to get your wheels off the ground.

Building an All-Mountain Bike?  Hmm so am I, have a look! (Part 1) Building an All-Mountain Bike? Hmm so am I, have a look! (Part 1)
I've been trying to wrap my head around what an "All Mountain" mountain bike is to me, as it seems to vary a bit between bike companies. But the General concensus is that the bike should be able to do "All". Climb well, XC really well (has to be a good pedal ’er) and descend like a short travel DH rig. Sounds easy enough-haha not really, but there are bikes out there that do fit this bill. After a quick bit of research and a general idea of what I wanted in a bike I set out to build my own “All Mountain” mountain bike.

Check out the criteria:

At 17 years of age Steve Romaniuk's parents and school let him walk away half way through his grade 12 year to board a bus full of other riders and hit the road. Little did they know that the bus was full of Kokanee and that it would be the catalyst to his career as one of our sports most recognizable riders today. Steve finished his grade 12, but its his riding that gets all the passing grades. From print ads to huge movie parts, Romo as his friends know him is just getting going and with the 2007 season underway he is now on a whole new ride.

Last night Oak Bay Bikes in Nanaimo was broken into, one day before our first anniversary! The thieves knew what they were doing because they had to get through security film, metal bars, alarm and cable locks to get to the bikes. The thieves got seven bikes, a Specialized Sx Trail 1 med, Specialized Big Hit 1 med, Stumpjumper comp med, Stumpjumper Elite med, Sx Trail Test bike, Stumpjumper Wmns Test bike and a Devinci Ollie 2. The thieves missed out on a Demo 7 but that's not much consolation. The test bikes are distinct colours, Red for the SX Trail and Baby Blue for the Womens Stumpjumper. If you happen to see these bikes please contact Oak Bay Bikes 250-760-0211 and we can pass along serial numbers. Thank you for any help.

Pinkbike.com takes to the road-Day 2:Hood River, Oregon Pinkbike.com takes to the road-Day 2:Hood River, Oregon
Rolling into Hood River we really had no idea of what to expect, but the results have been great. The locals have been nice enough to go riding with us out of towners and the dirt here is pretty good too. Got to see some of the jumps that Kirt Vories hit in NWD7 and get in a lot of verticle during the day. Over all it was a good Easter, even if no chocolate was consumed. Day 1 in Hood River has easily set the bar high for any other riding we do on this trip.

NWD Star Struck winner is..... NWD Star Struck winner is.....
Well thanks to all that wrote in with your tales about the NWD riders. Wayne Goss is known to give a mean wedgie if you comment on his nipple ring in an inappropriate manner, Cam McCaul wears beer goggles when he's picking up in Whistler and Geoff Gulevich will sign your brothers DVD Christmas present if you take him out for lunch... we would have never known this stuff if it wasn't for you.

Sombrio re-signs Ben Boyko for 07 season Sombrio re-signs Ben Boyko for 07 season
Coming off a breakout performance in 2006, 26-year-old Vancouver rider Ben Boyko has been re-signed to a money deal with Sombrio Clothing for the 2007 season. “Boyko had standout segments in Kranked 6 and CKD in 2006,” says Sombrio owner, Dave Watson. “He consistently laid down huge, clean, technical runs at Saalbach, Crankworx and Monster Park. Basically, the kid is on fire.” Boyko, who has roots in BMX, is often cited as one of today’s hardest working riders, always digging, building, riding, and shooting. “I’m planning on hitting all the big comps this season,” explains Boyko. “I can't wait to work on a new segment again, travel the world and ride with good friends.”
