Freedom 40

R1-04908-0006

When you are a kid you always dream on having a nice house and a backyard full of dirt jumps to ride your bike.

Freedom40 is a reality and is the name of Eric’s backyard, somewhere in the Santa Cruz, CA area where you can ride trails, slopestyle and downhill.

I was able to check that place out and take some photos of Kyle Jameson, Jeff Herbertson and Alex Reveles while they were riding their bikes beating the heat last month.

bnhectortableonefoot1

Freeride legend Cam Zink started his own company called The Sensus in early 2009 with just a couple of slide-on grips.

Five years later the company has growth worldwide with all the best riders riding them on their handlebars. They are the most dominant grips on the planet.

The new signature grips from Cam Zink are the Gum Rubber Swayze slide-ons and I have been lucky to test them out in Lloret Trails.

Ray has progressed a lot the last couple of years, from riding at the Post Office to finishing 4th at the X-Games Phenom event and filming a bunch of web videos.

I really liked the CA Daze II, by JL Media, back in January. Both the filming + editing and the riding were top notch.
