It was a 16 hour haul through the night straight to Boulder, Colorado to meet up with Colorado locals at Zak Maytum's skate warehouse for a ramp session before heading out to the hills. After a day or riding some of the worlds fastest hills (video to come) it was another early morning and off to the Buffalo Bill Downhill with over 100 riders from across the globe. It took three U-Hauls to get the riders back to the top of the hill after a run. Yes, there was even an electric 'fuel' pump for riders to refuel. 1200 miles under the belt with 1500 more to go. Stay tuned with more updates to come.
The car is packed and the two-week tour begins. Louis Pilloni, George Mackenzie, James Kelly, Gabe Gwynne, and Marcus Bandy have started their journey and on their way to the first event of the Southwest Series, Buffalo Bill Downhill (www.BBDownhill.com) in Golden, Colorado. It doesn’t stop there. After the race festivities are done, they repack the truck and head south to Albuquerque, NM for Ditch Slap and the Atomic Bomb Race. Stay tuned as more updates, pictures and videos are soon to come.

The idea behind this shortflick was to give the viewer some surreal insight into the mind of professional downhill sk8ter Erik Lundberg. He starts his day by waking up in Encinitas California. After a nutritious breakfast he begins a journey on his bike in search of a sick hill where he can be free and lose himself by sk8ting it before the sun sets. While biking to this hill he daydreams about the time he lost his balance at 70mph from a crack in the road in Brazil, along with losing the final race to Mischo Erban in the US Nationals. Shot in monochrome and with appearances by Jeff Budro, Evren Ozan, Mischo Erban & various IGSA riders, "Lundberg Loses It" is a story about a skater with a goal. His goal is to utilize the multiple ways he's lost it and apply those lessons to skating this hill the best that he can. But can he lose himself before the sun sets? This shortflick is dedicated to all shredders of past, present, and future. Enjoy the show. - Kenny Luby
