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.
Downhill skateboard racing returned to Southern California with the Cinco de Mayo weekend Catalina Classic. Riviera Skateboards, Paris Trucks, and the folks at Resource Distribution put on a world-class event with an exciting, technically challenging course with outstanding race organization.
Wheelbase put together an awesome slide jamberooski a couple weeks ago, it went off with a bang. More than a hundred cats showed up. Thumbs up.
Session with Da Loc Dawgs. Is that a Bentley?
Skate House Media was started in January 2010 to provide an inside view into part of the downhill skateboard community. A year has gone by with over 160 original videos, countless photos, and epic community content (who could forget Double Pendy?). We’re looking forward to 2011, but first let’s take a quick look back at part of 2010.
A bunch of us got together for a Halloween session and wore our costumes to really make it count. Check out housemates Louis and Max dressed as Santa and Mr. Slave, locals Dustin and Kyle as Eeyore and a banana, and Portlander Casey Morrow as BP (British Petroleum). Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
This video was shot and edited by Louis Pilloni in December of 2009 and features riding by fellow housemates James Kelly and Brian Peck, as well as local shredder Kyle Chin. At the time, Louis was still working for Orangatang and Brian had just moved in along with Max Dubler. Our creative Juices were flowing and the creation of SkateHouseMedia was looming. All we wanted to do was skate everyday and get rad footage.
James Kelly, Patrick Switzer, Douglas Dalua, Kevin Reimer, and Kyle Chin get reckless on some local hills in this fresh Orangatang video by Adam Colton and Jonathan Jelkin. Read Jonathan and Adam’s thoughts on the video here.
