Buffalo Bill is always a good time. Even if you get knocked out of the race early, you’ll still get plenty of runs. Click for the Race Recap Video.
SkateHouseMedia presents Part 2 of the 2012 Compilation. Special thanks to the SHM Scene Supporters and the skate community for making this project possible.
The Best of 2012 Part 1.
This years Hot Heels final day was not only the culmination of the season and the highlight of the South African race calendar but a world title was still up for grabs with 16 points separating the top 4 riders in the mens open Skateboarding division.This ensured a very strong International contingency combined with a local field that was prepared to keep the Hot Heels trophy on African soil.
If you’ve been to Kozakov, you know a good time is to be had. The Skate House Crew was out in force doing to 2012 IGSA Euro Tour. Kozakov in the Czech Republic was the first stop.

The finals of Argentina’s IGSA world cup, Snake Skeleton.
Snake Skeleton, the 9th stop on the IGSA’s world cup tour went off last weekend in San Luis Argentina. Check out this raw run with Alex Tongue, Camilo Cespedes, housemate James Kelly, and Curtis Onchi behind the gopro.
The 2012 Buffalo Bill Downhill Bloodspill went off last weekend on Lookout Mountain. Once again, an interesting crash made national news. Last year it was a helicopter crashing into the mountain, this time a rider crashed into a deer in the fastest part of the course. Apart from a couple minor hiccups, the event went smoothly and motivated riders got 30 runs in two days.
Rather than running separate women’s, juniors’, and masters’ classes, Justin Dubois, the organizer, created a new “Groms, Girls, and Geezers” class, a welcome development. California up and comers Byron Essert and Chance Gaul took first and second. Canadian old guy Frank “the Tank” Cote came in third.
This video is raw footage of all the open-class racing from the quarterfinals onward. Racing was close and competitive, with miraculous passes and upsets all the way through to the finals. At the end of the day, NorCal wunderkind Byron Essert won both the “Groms, Girls, and Geezers” class and the open class.
As riders and racing fans, we’ll continue to show up to Buffalo Bill as long as DuBois keeps putting it on. Colorado has good style.
Mischo Erbahn has one of the best skate-faces in the business and the good sense to rock a clear visor.
Maryhill in all its curvaceous glory. Click through for a much larger version.
Andrew Chapman always has an awesome skate-face.
Chip Wood prefers to hide behind two layers of tinting.
Biker Sherlock showed up and raced. That black on black suit is mighty stylish, if I may say so myself.
The Festival of Speed took a page out of the Freeride rulebook and let this giant pack of dudes get a run. I see Dustin Hampton, Nick Ronzani, Sinjin Davis, Kyle Chin, #MaximGarantRousseau, Will Royce, and a couple dudes I don’t recognize.
Laguna grom Ethan Vinograd winning the Junior Is. They had to run the finals twice and lil’ homie took it home both times, like a boss.
#MGR, Spencer Smith, and some other dudes enjoying a practice run.
Dalua winning his semifinal. Alex Tongue, Billy Meiners, Dillon Stephens, and Nicolas Desmarais bring up the rear.
Repechage was pretty heavy this year. This is Brian Bishop beating Max Capps and Nick Ronzani.
This ginger kid got “No Soul” on the back of his leathers. Killing it.
Alicia Fillback bought Skatie Katie’s old leathers, showed up at Maryhill and won the first race she ever entered. We’re stoked on Alicia.
See y’all next summer.
“For our last big event of the season we headed up to Calgary Alberta for the IGSA World Championships!
It was great to see the whole family again and we got to race on a killer hill.
Check out all the action as James Kelly wins his first ever World Champion title.”
