Paul Chamberlain, Matt Wootton & Richie Spencer win Down Underground Round 2 Video Contest

I have been helping out judge Round 2 of the Down Underground series online, Shaun Jarvis kindly sent in the results and wrote down what’s going Down Under, good luck to all those making it to Round 3 this weekend in Melbourne! Congratulations to the winners, Richie Spencer, Matt Wootton, and Paul Chamberlain!

As we move into round 3 of DownUnderGround this weekend in Melbourne the results for round two – the video round are now in.
As Australia is a large country and travel can be expensive the DownUnderGround series has morphed from 4 physical contests into two contests (Sydney and Melbourne) and one video contest.
The video contest concept is simple, each rider gets to submit one contest video run, between one and two minutes long, as if they were riding at a flatland contest. The video run gets judged using the same criteria as a normal contest, difficulty, consistency and variety. Points are awarded and these points go towards the year end title. It was good to see some good riding going on all around Australia and a few juniors getting in there as well, something we hope to see more of.
The winners in advanced and pro will share in $400 worth of travel to the next DownUnderGround contest thanks to Freestyle Now and the other place getters will be receiving some great prizes from our long time supporter Colony BMX.

Battle in the Rockies / Dez Maarsen wins Pre jam – Day 4

Battle in Rockies Dez from James McGraw on Vimeo.

Yesterday for a lil’ bit of fun, James and Reklamation Bikes threw down $200 for a quick 1 minute contest with all the riders in attendance. The rider list was pretty heavy to say the least, James McGraw, Dez Maarsen, Dub, Jason Plourde, Thomas Noyer, Benjamin Hudson, Tyler Gilliard and Dominik Nekolny all rode, and myself and Todd Carter judged and picked one winner, which was Dez who literally just arrived maybe an hour and half before the event went down. It was amazing to see the atmosphere build as James announced the event and the riding level shot up a ton, hopefully there will be a full edit soon! As you can imagine, the McGraw household is packed with riders, one of those things that you don’t see. The vibe is similar to the Guru jam, good times ahead this weekend!

More and more riders are arriving by the hour, today the spot will be packed. Check back for updates!
