Just in time for summer, Austin’s sweaty mess, OBN III’s drops their latest record today, 'Third Time To Harm'. The punk/garage outfit combines southern swing with an 80’s punk guitar charge that cooks up a super-fun swagger. The first single, “No Time For The Blues”, is soaked in Orville Bateman Neeley III's crazy front man charisma. Stream it and steam it here courtesy of TTT Records.
Returning back to the island getaway for a lucky 3rd year meant that the Downhill Division had one thing on their mind... win everything! The competition was fierce, the party was legendary, and when the dust settled local bomber AJ Haiby had claimed the crown! Congrats to all of the riders who made the journey and raced their wheels off!
Out on Catalina island the Downhill Division leathers could be seen scattered over the race course all weekend. In nearly every heat there was at least one 9-ball going fast for the black and yellow. When it was all said and done, San Diego native AJ Haiby, stood on top of the podium $4000 richer. This is his 2nd win a month, look out for a lot more from AJ as race season continues.
