What a proud weekend for South African motor racing, as we got to celebrate our Heritage weekend with a new World Champion! Brad Binder conquered the Moto3™ World Championship after finishing second at the #AragonGP – he now moves with KTM into the Moto 2 championship next year and I hope he continues his meteoric rise to the top of Moto GP!
The X Games Real Series grows every year. What started with skating and snowboarding now includes Moto FMX for the first time. 5 Moto riders were given the opportunity to make a freeride video, the public vote and a winner is chosen for X Games Gold. Below are all 5 entries. Drake and Wes both missed the memo in my book, with a motorbike advert and a trailer submitted, while Mike Mason’s is simply average. Twitch did what he does best, but unfortunately I have been watching Crusty Demons videos for years so it did not blow me away. In my opinion, with some humour, sick variety of riding, big freeride hits and beautiful camera work and editing, my vote went to Ronnie Renner (In Picture).
You can vote too, just watch the videos below and then head on over to the X Games Real Moto Page – HERE
In the build up to this weekend’s, Supercross Africa, at Loftus, I got to go hang with Darryn Durham and Caleb Tennant, in the Atlantis Dunes on Sunday. We had 4×4’s, bikes, cold beers, boerie rolls and an insane view of Cape Town and Table Mountain. The boys were killing it and I may have gotten too close for a couple of shots. So sit back and enjoy the action, while getting your froth on for Supercross on Saturday!
Rockstar Energy model, Jessica Vargas poses with the 2014 KTM for the December issue of Transworld Magazine. Not much more explanation needed than that…
Welcome to your Friday Mix and we start with an epic short doccy on the Jbay Open of Surfing this week. It was a super fun week in Jbay, a great competition and a huge battle between the age groups. You might also notice a certain captain’s voice commentating in the background haha! Great to see Greg Emslie with the win in Jbay finally!
Next up we got some awesome Enduro for you in Fly Machines’ Directors Reel for 2013. Some epic terrain, bikes and action that will get you frothing to get out into the great outdoors on your dirt machine.
Lastly we finish up with some river surfing from the alps. My mate Chris Cab sent me this video of his mates surfing in the middle of nowhere in Austria. Just goes to show how hard we as surfers will work to get a surf session in. Guess a its true what they say, Only a surfer knows the feeling…
