The past few weeks have been filled with some ups and downs. The ups started with a great trip to Vegas for Interbike. Nora cup was great, congrats Aaron and Jamie! The guys at Ride BMX magazine really did a great job of making it a night to remember. Mini Kiss played which was the icing on the cake. Kevin Porter got married the next night (thanks Povah for the fresh kicks for the wedding) and following the wedding who did we meet but Mr. Kiss himself, Gene Simmons. WILD!
Even more recently I was invited to a contest in Berlin Germany called the T-Mobile Extreme Playground. It was a great time with a different course from the norm (a good variety of tranny, wedges and rails) and different format (head-to-head sudden death) Here are some pics from the event! It was a short trip, but thanks to Achim and Andy from Rebel Jam it was one of my best visits to date. Thanks guys!
I got back to Chicago to find out that my car was stolen while I was away. No, not just broken into, completely gone. Police haven't found it yet and while I'd like to remain optimistic, I think my chances of getting it back are slim. I wish very bad things upon the thief. Here is a pic of my car from last winter when it grew a mustache. R.I.P. white civic, we had a good time while it lasted.
