Ryan checks in…

Ryan Guettler sent in a quick update of what he has been up to of late & what he has on for the weeks ahead…

I just got back from Budapest. I went there for a Monster Energy Dirt jump contest. Had a really fun time and even got 2nd place !! They built the course for the comp but also to leave it there for the kids afterwards so they were very small jumps, which were hard for me to do my bigger tricks on, I wish they were bigger but it was amazing event. Thanks to every one over there at Monster for taking care of me and showing me a good time.

I’m now back in Greenville getting ready for the 1st stop of the Dew Tour. I really excited but Dew Tour this year it going to be fun I’ll keep you up to date on more event so

New splash page.

If you check the index page you may have noticed a new image featuring Marnold and the Variant stem. This is also the first sneak peek of the new layout style for the online and print adverts. We wanted to add more of a story to the adverts so that you get to learn a bit more about the behind the scenes especially with the DVD coming out next month.

Cooper in town

Cooper Brownlee has been up here in Brisbane for the past week hanging out, riding & getting some work done. Here is a shot from a recent day out & about riding.

Yo yo !!

Paddy Gross checks in…

Paddy Gross sent in an update on what he has been up too….

Yo everyone !! Hope all of you are doing just fine and shredding as much as you can. I am doing fine over here good ol Germany and finally the weather is getting better.

I’ve been riding heaps of demos in the last couple months and I also hit up a contest in Innsbruck, Austria with my Vans teammates Tobias Wicke, Markus Braumann, Senad Grosic and Daniel Juchatz. We’ve had a pretty cool time and the location has been awesome. The whole wooden park was placed in the middle of the forrest in front of a huge mountain chain, seriously an amazing scenery. The ramps been very awesome and we’ve had a good time shredding. At the end Markus Braumann won this thing well deserved, I scored 2nd place followed by Tobias and so on. Cool trip, cool people and heaps of fun.

Then another super awesome thing happened haha. I wrote Zac Miner that after he taught me the saying “nahyourritemate” while I was in Australia, that this has been one of my favorite memories of my visit and I got it as a tattoo on my forearm. Since I have heaps of words who have huge meaning in my life written on my arm, that one was another one I had to write on it. So Zac was stoked and told me to send it over to Nick who does the nyrm stuff. So I did, he was stoked, told me about the brotherhood and added me straight to the team hahaha. I was so fucking stoked and it all happened while I was working in a nightshift at the porn store. Wow that’s even cooler than it was anyways. Now I am able to represent one of the most awesome countries I’ve ever seen and my mates as well, can’t be better than that.

I also have kinda bad news because I won’t make it to the Colony DVD premiere cause I am going to need my travel budget for all the upcoming contests in Europe and I am not able to earn enough money from my job for a plane ticket in such a short time, Unfortunately not all the girls need toys hahaha dang it though!

So the season pretty much just started and I’ll keep having fun on my little bike like you are. All the best to all of ya and thanks for reading.
