After arriving into nice weather in Denver, Colorado on Monday. We have a few days of bad weather and been unable to ride James’ flatland slab riding spot at his house, pretty teasing when you can see it as you chill in the house, to say the least. Yesterday, we woke up to sunshine and after updating the site filmed a quick how to with the help of Mates Tucek. The how to is now up for you to view.
The McGraw household is full with flatlanders as the weekend draws nearer, yesterday we kicked out the day with breakfast at Schlotzskys. Before heading down to James’ work, upon arrival we met old school legend Robert Castillo, Gary Knecht, Tyler Gilliard and our AM BITR video winner, Salvatore Castro all the way from Chile plus many others who started arriving as the day went on.

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!
