Winter hasn’t quite made it’s way to the ‘loops yet but I am signing out for this season. I just recently had an operation, and as a result I have been spending a lot of time on the couch! I am allowed to start riding XC again shortly but there wont be any more sweet action coming from my end till spring.

This fall has been amazing. I think I rode almost every day for the past month or so. Perfect weather and premium trail conditions made it hard not to! I was really excited that some of you guys made it up to shred recently. We all have savage schedules and when they collide it is something to appreciate… especially during the wonderful rides of Kamloops’ fall.

In between punching out as many laps as possible I was also pretty productive lately. Tippie was here for two consecutive weekends. We spent a lot of time shredding and stopping to get shots for his Pinkbike.com video series “Just the Tip.” I also got in some camera time with Brock Anderson and Florian Fiese. The images from Brock went toward a story for these guys and one of the shots from Florian went to score high in a German photo contest and win publication in an upcoming issue of FREERIDE GERMANY. I put together a fast edit for an online “bragging rights” contest, Support the Whip

And I finished up collecting a big pile of images with local photographer Matty Miles. That will be really helpful with writing stories and blog posts throughout the winter months.

This has been the funnest year I have ever had. I got to meet a lot of new people and ride a lot of new things. Thanks so much for helping make it happen. I seriously would not be able to do this without the support I get from you guys. THANKS!

I hope you all have a fun winter. Don’t forget to scope out my blogs, http://www.bicyclecafe.blogspot.com/ and http://raceface.com/riders/?author=63 , updated with frequent juice. You will hear from me again in the spring!
