This past Easter week-end saw Round 2 of the WP DH Series. The track had changed at the top section, the start saw you going straight into a small rock garden and then a rock drop off. Fun section which linked up to the old track which has 1 rock garden few jumps and a nice hip jump near the end. There was a lot of people supporting which is good for the sport, Carlo was the only team member riding and placed 1st in the enduro event. The sport is growing and its nice to see more supports.
So its that time again for round 2 of the WP Downhill Race at Paarl. The course has changed at the top section and seems to be fun and fast.Karl Ebel, Carlo Brand our new team memeber and myself will be racing, Gareth is missing this one as he is getting married. The race is a 1 day event and its going to be awesome, so guys come out to the Taal Monument and watch some great Downhill Racing
The week of the 03/03/2013 saw the 1st round of the WP Downhill Series at Zevenwacht.It was an early start due to the races only being a 1 day event and we needed to get our practice runs in, Karl Ebel was out due to him breaking his toe the week-end before. We did a few practice runs and tried to manage the sun as it was one of those beautiful days in Cape Town where it is was crazy hot and no wind. Gareth had a few good practice runs and styling the jumps, I had a small crash on the course but luckily was not a bone crushing crash. It was time for the race runs and Gareth’s run saw him place 3rd in the FM category, I placed 5th in the Sub Vets. It was a good start to the season and only going to get better. We have a new rider to the team (Carlo), he placed 1st in the enduro class. Next race is at the end of the month at Paarl, We will all be there, so come check out and support the guys

The Top section has a few small doubles and is flowing, middle section is the rock garden with 1 or 2 new features added, bottom section is fast with a really fun table near the end where most of the action is. Our team will be there and hope to start the series off on a good note with good points. Come down for the day as it loads of fun and cheer on the guys
So guys I have been a little quiet but back again. This past weekend we started our year off with the 1st race being the 2013 SA National Cup 1 – Jonkershoek. We woke up to terrible rain and we knew then that it would be a fun day, we got to the venue and there plenty of guys down which was really awesome. We made our way up to the top of the track and began our practice runs, as you can imagine with all the rain the track was very wet and slippery. I watched a few guys and saw to young guys pinning it over a drop off and both coming off badly but as the youngs are, they brushed themselves off and continued. We did 4 runs for the day as it just got too bad to ride.
Race day came and no rain which meant faster times, so we thought. We arrived at the track and it was raining but we got our gear on and hit the track, seeding runs came and rain dissapeared which is always good. Gareth and I both had chilled out runs as it was still very wet the track, the race runs came and we both smashed our previous times by 8 seconds and more. The start to the season was good for us and we placed well, next race is on the 3rd of March 2013 at Zevenwaght.
I would like to welcome karl Ebel who has joined our team for the 2013 season
