I had the pleasure of traveling to Hawaii for teaching BMX and skateboarding to kids living on US military bases on the island of Oahu. There are two skate parks on the Hickam/Pearl Harbor base and both have a plethora of different ramps, wedges and rails.

Here is an interview with pics from the military newspaper: http://www.hookelenews.com/renowned-bmx-stunt-rider-teaches-joint-base-kids/

For the final round of the 2104 season, the racing was exciting and to the wire.
I am a champion! This is the last competitions blog for the competition session 2013-2014. It is a perfect moment to say thank to my sponsors Organic, Allez up and of course, FIVE TEN.

It was a very nice reunion. Well organized, nice people and climbers everywhere. The FQME (Quebec federation of mountaineering and climbing) presented all the new projects for...
Mountain Bike Park Javornik was my next destination. I was riding with the man behind the park Sebastjan Stres.
