The Germans are coming.

Half the German Olympic BMX team was going to stay at the farm last week but it was a serious full house and we had to send Luis and his sister to stay with my cousin Cam in town. However it was his birthday on friday and we tossed a huge rager for him the night before the world cup. Melanie made and unreal cake for him, I had some salmon, Will made a wicked potato salad, Etsell brought some fat tire and we roasted marshmallows on ski poles over a fire that almost caused the entire yard to burn down. Marty you should have been here to stop the fire? dude man! 
salmon dinner, full Canadian, yeah das ist goot! Luis, his sister Laura and their parents were all loving the canadian dinner. 

this was before the ski poles, but you get the idea. 

Marty! put out the fire! dude man!

BMX world cup in Abbotsford. these guys go so huge on kids bikes, its really impressive. Huck your meat and live the dream! 

Craiger picked up some back bacon. This was the best sandwich I've ever had in my life. farm fresh eggs and tomato's on a triangle bun. oh snap.

Bros gone wild summer time.

Yeahhhh bro's gone wild! got the group together over the weekend, and a big group it was. There was five of us from the west coast, five from the greater Calgary area, and one crazy man from Quebec. We met up in Rossland BC for the best riding this world has to offer. We all rented a huge place with enough room for all 11 of us and shredded the best single track known to man! Team BC cooked dinner one night and team Alberta cooked dinner the next. A good time was had by all.
Rossland really is the promised land, I found this photo on my camera and thought I would post it just to prove the skiing is the best skiing also. 

Melanie made some riding food. Snap!

rode 7 summits Saturday. 11 of us took 5.5hours to do it. our ride time was only 2.5hours but Toby had 8 flats, Hadley had 7, Quinn had 2, Craig had 1, Mel had 1, and Phil had one burp that needed a bit of air. Awesome day, perfect weather, and the best group ever.

yeah yeah I think this was a pinch. Matt says he likes to run18psi, humm....

Mel about to summit the Tamarack trail on Route to SuperMegaDeath. SMD might be the best trail I've ever done. It ends at the USA boarder and starts up way in Rossland. By the time you get to the bottom you're just giddy. Epic flowing huck your meat, with views, steeps, and some drops to keep you on your toes. 

Trail was dusty so we had to session between riders, I like to skid a lot and Melanie likes to see so it was one at a time. with this photo you can see the best little town on earth. 

Team Alberta Burger night.
