The first race of the UCI Downhill World Cup took place this weekend in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Congratulations to all our Team 5.10 athletes. First place went to Team 5.10 rider Aaron Gwin, followed closely by Greg Minnaar. Syndicate's rider and Team 5.10 athlete Steve Peat placed 5th and Five Ten sponsored athlete Sam Hill came in 8th. Five Ten made quite the stand on the women's podium as well with Fionn Griffiths in 2nd, Emmeline Ragot in 3rd and Sabrina Jonnier in 4th.
Four days with my friends Gorka, Eneko and Sasi enjoying the nice crag of Margalef, in Catalunya.
Happy Easter. This might be a time of the year that you celebrate, or a weekend the same as any other. For me there is little difference, in fact a period to avoid being away with the crowds. But I notice it by the amount of chocolate eggs that seem to come my way, not that I’m complaining! This year was a very happy Easter for many as the sun shone. Just a few years ago it was snowing at Easter! The sun is great, but not for hard climbing.
April 8, 2011 - My last day in Spain Today is my last day in Spain. Tomorrow my friends will drop me off at the airport in Barcelona, where I will begin the long voyage home. Going home is hard, but going home while all of your friends get to stay and climb is even harder. I’m trying not to dwell on that. In a few minutes we are headed back to Tres Ponts.
Acabando de preparar un pedido para el cliente de Rokodromo hemos realizado al juego que ya habíamos terminado, el efecto de Dual Texture, muy extendido en los USA entre sus marcas de presas y aquí hasta el momento tan solo Dark Arrow se había atrevido con este tipo de diseños, así que para uno de mis clientes les he realizado este juego. Para ampliar información sobre el desarrollo del juego, en la web de Psyco Art Holds.
Our last demo of the trip was at the North Austin Rock Gym. We finished off with an outstanding demo. We arrived early to climb. People didn't start showing up until around 7. Everyone was psyched though. Since it's been too hot to climb at most areas not over the water. Ronnie and I keep exploring the trailers. We found an amazing deep-fried bacon wrapped pickle, over at the Pig Vicious trailer. Austin continues to amaze me!
