Millar is down.

After an awesome day out riding, literally last spot of the evening we were riding Clint unfortunately landed wrong on an up rail to 180 which resulted in a pretty bad leg break. I can’t upload photos from the day until tomorrow so for now here is a photo from happier times for Millar at the first spot we hit out of Vegas a couple of days ago. He is having surgery tonight we hope so i will keep all posted.

Note: Anyone out there that is possibly awaiting email replies please be patient. Thanks.

Hit’em with it.

Yesterday afternoon we got into LA from Vegas and we had a really solid ride all day today in Downtown LA. The photos below are of Zac at a spot we came across on the way to LA which was fun! Then we have Tom hitting a spot we hit up towards the end of the evening.

Ryan out after 2nd surgery…

Ryan Guettler has come out of his second shoulder surgery & had this to say…

3 weeks ago was my first shoulder surgery and everything went very well. Yesterday I came out of the sling but on the same day went straight into sugery on my left shoulder. My left shoulder is the one with the 3rd degree separation so they had to put a plate in my shoulder, this made the surgery 8-1/2 hours long. Being out for that long I had a crazy dream, I was dreaming that I was riding and it felt so real that after my surgery was done I thought that I had crashed and was in the hospital for the crash. Also being out for that long when I woke up, my leg was asleep and I couldn’t move my arm. For a split second I thought I was paralysed. It’s pretty crazy going through this right now. I havent had a serious crash in 6 years or so.

Nora Cup…

Always looking forward to this each year & this year will be no exception. Maybe the last one in Vegas since Interbike is set for Anaheim next year?

If you see us there come up & say hi.
