Powell-Peralta Downhill

Of all the skate down the old grade videos I’ve seen, this is the best. Cocky lil’ fella. Color me impressed.

Lars Troutwine takes a serious rip on the new Powell-Peralta Downhill Dragonskins - a new premium formula that rolls faster, grips more, and is substantially more durable than Snakes, already the leader in the industry for freeride wheels.

We can't wait for you to taste 'em.

The razor sleek 2020 Corvette Stingray debuted to great fanfare less than a month ago, boasting an aeronautical-inspired design and endorsements from former astronauts.

@tom_frost_documentary_film is organizing the first ever / first annual hill climb of the notoriously steep Old Priest Grade on Highway 120, Tuolumne County, California. The 24th of August will be one year since Tom moved on.

One of Tom’s dreams was to have a bike race up this brutal road. He even had @englishcycles build a specific frame for this hill. Craig and Tom are filming and editing the @tom_frost_documentary_film and have gone through all the hoops to get the road closed on a Saturday morning.

Yes - it will be a grind.

Yet - if you ever thought about riding the grade with no cars this is your chance.
The race starts at 6:30 AM and is a “sprint” for you masochists. Pancake breakfast to follow at Priest Station.
