Jenna Makgill – on the International Red Bull team

March 30, 2011

I’ve held back on posting about this while I did all the admin required in this process of getting a new athlete accepted into the esteemed Red Bull stable. To cut it short – Jenna is now sponsored by Red Bull as a fixed gear bike rider. For those that don’t know – my day job is Sports Marketing Manager for Red Bull in NZ. Getting a new athlete on the team takes time and is not easy. The athlete list was 1450 about 6 years ago and now it’s about a third of that. That includes Formula One and Wingsuiters etc. So the bosses are looking for quality not quantity – and that is certainly what we have with Ms Jenna Makgill. Pretty exciting for me really. So Jenna is exchange studying in Germany right now and we will be working to help her train and travel to races and events. Watch out for her in upcoming Mini Drome events – I just had an application today from Indonesia – I might have to get there for that one ! So right now I’m getting a helmet sprayed up for Jenna and working with Leader Bike Co to get her a bike sent to Germany stat! These photos are shot by the amazing Simeon Patience.

We are cutting a clip right now – will keep you posted! make sure you check the link to her blog – it’s awesome. STOKED.


Lester – Tour of Northland

March 29, 2011

Flatted stage one after avoiding a big pile up, then again stage two & with
no wheel wagon near I waited around half an hour each day for a wheel. These
pics from day two’s flat near Tane Mahuta in the Kauri forest up north,
after finally getting a wheel I discovered my brakes rubbed on the carbon of
the wheel (not the brake surface) so had to ride remainder of the stage on
only a front brake, after my cup of coffee that is!
The number 13 seemed to follow me everywhere over the tour… Bad times!

Justin’s shots from the HIPSTER 100

March 25, 2011

Lester’s event went really well, and my horse thighs clearly won but was humble enough to not want to win his own event. Lester rules. Justin’s skull prop is pretty dope.

Easter Weekend Bike Festival

March 24, 2011

You probably heard on the blogs that we are all collectively looking to hold another Easter Extravaganza. A bunch of us representing a broad spectrum of posse’s are hooking up tonight to talk it through. More soon. All I’m going to say is everyone is having input and it’s going to be fucking awesome. Until then – don’t believe the hype.

Chris Mawson’s Leader

March 4, 2011

Chris finally got his project finished in Sydney. B43 rims and Durace (pronounced Dura-che like Vercace we reckon) hubs. he had a black SRAM Omnium BB and crankset but there was not enough clearance to run it so he’s got a Meiche setup on there. WEAPON!
