Sam Anderson form Cane Creek joined me on the mic last weekend at Downhill Southeast finals to get rider hyped for the Single Crown Showdown race! Downhill freestyles are my jam!

Cane Creek and Industry Nine each put together a team of two employees who went head to head for total combined time to determine which company had the right to giveaway the prize to the top single crown time of the day.

Hey guys, just got back from Port Angeles, and what a weekend it was! Perfect Weather, Great turnout of over 450 Racers, and a heated battle for Pro Mens yesterday! I managed to do a bit of filming during the practices and seeding and Men's pro finals.

Filmed with an old dvx100. I hope you enjoy, and hopefully will have a little edit of the mens pro race later today!

Port Angeles Seeding Results. Strobel fastest and we're pretty sure he's on a 29er just because he likes it.



(reportedly using a stock 40 w/ a wheel/tire just barely fitting. #DONTTRYTHISATHOMEKIDS)

Luke Strobel, one of the first (if not the first) to win DH races on a 29er can't get one of those fancy Fox 49s? Is he still on a Wreckoning? Or does Evil have something new brewing?
