    Adidas Freeride Team shredded our trails...

    The Adidas International Freeride Team made a quick stop at our trails today. Bunch of cool guys all with crazy steez. They had a super rushed schedule and were only able to spend about 2 hours throwin it down. They had a full photog/film crew catching the action... I'm sure you'll see some better stuff from their So Cal trip.

    They were straight owning a transfer that few hit and most struggle to clear....


    Andreu Lacondeguy...


    John Jesme goes big and keeps it real...


    Me, same spot at a sesh last weekend...

    Not today, or this spot, but one of my fav pics of Jesme. Flippin in the dark at Sheep on a fully...


    The best part of the day was stopping in at the local bike shop... everybody there freakin out about who it was. And the guys looking through all the dvds and mags finding pics of themselves. Haha.

    Yeah, I wish I could have got some better shots. But, as soon as they were getting comfortable, they had to leave. I rolled with them down to Venice Beach. That was interesting.

    I dunno, mang. He was riding a full suspension mtb... they all look the same to me.

    We just cruised around in Venice messin with the crazies. Sessioned the lil skate park for a bit. One of the dudes was a manual machine... I've never seen that little piece of crap curved curb/quarter thing look so cool.

    got a pic from the phone....

    I was mostly just joking, I had a bad experience with Ells some years ago and I'm still scarred....

    I'm sure they're much better now, but I'll stick with Turner and Santa Cruz for the time being.

    Fo sho. Just found this sequence of Andreu. HOLY CRAP. He is quite the character, too... if he wasn't on his bike, he was on his razor scooter doing barspins and tailwhips.

    Damn dude, do you ride it or just take pics of it?

    That pic of Andreu at crankworx is nasty. He didn't pull it, but that is still one of the craziest things i've ever seen. If he had pulled it and gone on to finish his run, well, i can't even imagine what he'd have done off the finish drop.
