HIGHNOON SCRAMBLE 10

On October 29th, the TENTH High Noon Scramble went down at the end of # 6 road: The Richmond Dunes. The race is a multiple-lap loop around some sketchy obstacles, jumps, hill climbs, and burms. The categories include mono shock and vintage. Us spectators don't really care too much about all that though, we just love watching these dudes dress up and eat shit in the sand. Overall, some highlights included:

  • Mike Babs Goul head costume
  • Nicks Maico 250
  • The EZ TV Broadcast crew
  • The trike dude that smashed into Elliots new truck
  • Keddie lighting off a firework when he won runner-up
  • The snowmobile over-heating and then proceeding to hit the jump over and over again
  • The beer pong crew
  • Myk Roc
  • The dude who didn't bring a costume and was forced into riding in his underwear
  • Bri's Filth Mode cookies
  • Some random girl who gave me a cheddar smokey
  • The winners belt
  • Curtis wresting the winner (WWE style)

All in all, the event was awesome as it is every year. The new belt that has been made for future years will be up for grabs next Halloween season... Who will take it next time!!?? For now, here's some 35mm film photos I shot on my Olympus Stylus:

Husqvarna

Since I ride an enduro built for a big guy, I'm always on the look out for something newer and lighter for the BC backcountry. I didn't know anything about Husqvarna until I was thrown into a situation where I had to ride one for 3 hours straight on the freeway in Oregon. 

The Husqvarna website has a really cool "Heritage" timeline about their brand. Since I'm into old shit, it's pretty cool to see how this brand has been around for so long as well as to see the evolution of the business side of things. Check out their Heritage page --> here.

Day at the Dunes

The Richmond dunes is a huge chunk of land in the Vancouver outskirts used for dirt dumping from local construction and mill sites. We use it to throw our bikes around. It's always changing and there's always a ton of different types of dirt biking going on here. Every sunny Sunday, Mitch Kirilo, Matt Savage and a bunch of his buds go out and rip around on their dirt bikes. It's starting to get pretty frosty out there but when you drop your bike in the sand and have to pick it up a million times, it starts feeling like the middle of summer.
