From Germany to Czech Republic to Italy to France, the 2012 Euro Tour was full of skateboarding and good times. Check sure to check out the Euro Series Videos from the trip if you missed them. Here are a few random clips that never made it into a video.
The crew travels to Teolo, Italy for the IGSA Padova. For a course raw run and race results recap be sure to check out previous Padova posts.
Tucked away in the Italian Alps is a special place where skaters enjoy the perfect blend of nature and man.
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.
Canadian Jeff “Beer man of a million tries” Spicoli Randomsky pinning it through the chicane, about to drop into the fastest stretch. Adam Auger spots.
Let’s all pour a little out for the fast hill, where the legendarily smooth pavement was tampered with last week. We’re not sure if it was a full-on chipsealing or simply a seal coat on the space pavement, but it’ll never be the same. Those who had the chance to skate it know how sick it was.
Just for the record: Jim Weatherwax was skating it from halfway back in the 90s. JP Kaloi, Dubes, and Josh Weisfeld were the first dudes to bomb it from the top, and Dubes is probably the first dude to do 70mph on a skateboard. Dubes, K-Rimes, and Zak Maytum were draft-training when they crashed at 70mph in 2008 and Billy Bones Meiners crashed going over 75 when he hit a pebble in August 2011. More recently, Colorado legend Kevin “Coop” Cooper took himself out at around 70. Patrick Rizzo bombed it on a street deck, then went switch on a downhill board. DT and Dave Angelus skated it naked in the dark a couple years ago and Mischo set his first IGSA world speed record there. Those who know, know that skating that hill was better than drugs.
Louis keeps the GoPro on for his quarter final battle with Kevin Reimer, Misho Erban, Kyle Wester, Zen Shikaze, and Patrick Switzer as they battle it out for the top 3. One mistake or miscalculation is all it takes to lose the pack.
Racing at the Maryhill Festival of Speed was tighter then ever. Top qualifiers were fighting to survive in first round heats and by the second heats started to look like a final. With 6 riders in a heat and the top 3 advancing, strategy and skill both come into play.
Louis threw on the GoPro for some heats to bring you into the action. Here are some of his comments on the racing, “Racing at Maryhill this year was harder then ever. Everyone is fast! Striker put it best, ‘Maryhill, the easiest course to ride but the tough race to win.’”
Come next week: Quarter Final Race Heat with Kevin Reimer, Misho Erban, Kyle Wester, Zen Shikaze, Patrick Switzer, and Louis Pilloni
The 2012 Maryhill Festival of Speed has began. This five day event is the third stop in the IGSA World Cup series for the year. During the first day of riding, Louis plays rabbit as the crew chases and bumps him down the hill.
Housemate James Kelly made it the last round at Newton’s Nation. Here’s the final.
1. Mischo Erban
2. Douglas Dalua
3. Dillon Stephens
4. James Kelly
