K-Rimes Tightens His Grip on the World Cup Series at Mega Space

Canadian Kevin Reimer once again showed the world what a clinical skater he is by making it two wins in a row at the Mega Space World Cup event in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Reimer was pushed all the way by Dillon Stephens who reeled in the current World Cup points leader as the two riders entered the last turn before Reimer shut the door on his countryman with his exit speed carrying him over for another win.

Reimer Takes the Cream in Tarma

After a number of attempts the now IDF World Series points leader finally took the win that has eluded him in Tarma, Peru. The Canadian dominated his early round heats and was all class in the final to defeat former Tarma winner Dillon Stephens and Americans James Kelly (3rd) and Kyle Wester (4th). Top Qualifier Sebastian Hertler of Germany was edged out by Alex Tongue in the Consi to take 6th from Peruvian Gustavo Paredes Mena who took his qualifying form and nose for the local conditions to go all the way into the semi-finals before ending in 7th position overall with Chilean Matias Eduardo rounding out the top 8.

Stephens shows class in Lima

In true Peruvian style this ones a few days late, I must admit this is my fault as at the completion of the race I took off to the high Andes, training for the Tarma World Cup event starving myself of oxygen so I can run 14hr sessions on the IDF timing table. 

What is El Morro Solar? This is an event with one of the more spectacular views, riders start up the top of a tourist road and lookout under the shadow of a massive statue of Jesus ala Rio de Janeiro Christ the Redeemer style and wraps the headland all the way down…

Essert Takes 1st World Cup Colombia

Byron Essert showed his qualifying form was no fluke by taking out his maiden World Cup win in spectacular fashion over Canadian Kevin Reimer in a tight final. Australian Rob McWhinnie who had been in solid form through the weekend took third for his first World Cup Podium ahead of Canadian Patrick Switzer who crashed out in an all or nothing attempt to reel in the leaders in the final.

The second day of the Festival de la Bajada in the new track in Sipate produced some seriously impressive qualifying times with a constant change in the top 10. Patrick Switzer (Canada) set a blistering pace early on with a 1:53.363 holding a 2.5 second lead over Australian Rob McWhinnie at 1:55.815 and the rest of the field before Byron Essert…

Festival de la Bajada Day 1

In controversial circumstances the Festival de la bajada event was moved to a new location just outside of Bogota for the beginning of the South American leg of the IDF World Tour. While there were some questions surrounding the movement of the event nobody can question the quality of the track. The new track was certainly a step up in intensity pushing the skill level of riders to the max.
After a week of rain the water stayed away for the first practice day of the new Festival de la Bajada with competitors feeling out the track and looking for the rights lines on what is certainly shaping up to be one of the fastest and most technical hills on the world cup circuit. In what has become a signature of this event the festival atmosphere returned to the top of the hill with riders…
