I managed to sneak a mic onto Reed Stark during practice one early morning...
Live in the now, ya'll. Here's the live stream of Simple Session 20 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Random story: I actually drove by this place a few times in the last few months and it was super confusing to me. It looked like a BMX track, but it was obviously not finished and I couldn't really get a good look at it. Little did I know that it was an in-progress bike park that was free and open to the public. I headed out the grand opening for a little pre-session with the dudes and here's the raw cut along with a GoPro preview of the park thanks to Anthony Napoiltan and Justin Mclintock. If you're in the San Diego area, check out the Sweetwater Bike Park at 6065 San Miguel Rd, Bonita, CA. It's open from 9:30am to sunset. Fair warning, they don't allow pegs because of the nature of the way the place is made.
Mike Gray was in town for a few days, so we organized a little DTP session for you guys with the Haro squad. Mike, Chad Kerley, Blake Peters (who was fresh off a broken wrist) and newcomer to the Haro team, Austyn Mcintosh, all dropped the pin in a bit of an industrial area in the middle of SD. It seemed pretty promising in the beginning, but we ended up being stuck on one side of the freeway and pedaling crazy far (the gopro actually died at a point, so it was even further than it looked) and got burnt out after a few spots. Nonethless, I think the squad pulled through...
Mike Hoder and Hobie Doan drove down to LA for Christmas and they took full advantage of the nice weather and reasonably empty streets and had a day in West LA on Christmas Eve.
