GrassRoots Racing!

Colin and the Grassroots racing duders put on an awesome race yesterday out at Jim Gillettes. So much fun and mud! Tyson Copeland got a great little edit from a great little race in January! Colin ended up winning with his one run at the end of the day, and Johnny Rollin put me in back into third fastest time. Im stoked to be pumped and still picking mud out of my eyes haha Thanks Tyson for that banger, Austin for helping w timing and Colin for settin the whole thing

winter digging

Last year Rhys and I had played with the idea of building a big, lofty trick jump w a huge landing. After lots of scoping out potential areas for a trick jump, I returned to the Island. coming back work on trails there is awesome. Lots of good memories and even just seeing how we "built" lines back in the day gives me a good laugh.
Workin by myself most of the time, its kinda slow going but im making some good progress. Ive built up a landing/ roll in for the jump by about 2 feet , and started clearing and shaping the runout into our jump. Im headin out there today for a few hours, and il try n grab some pics to share.
