Be a dirtbag video!

Hey guys i'm new to your forum and need your help!

There is a TV show called drop in TV that airs in canada and around the world. (this season it will be on in the states as well) anyways, they are having a contest to get on the show. check out www.rip.tv/events/contest and vote for me to be on the drop in bus for next year!! there are enough good slopestyle riders on the bus (cam mccaul!!) there needs to be some pinner DH footage on the show as well!!!

here is my quick video

The pinner is the winner. By a mile.

I had a difficult time figuring out who else to vote for - I ended up going with the manual kid, who has a decent style, and then the other guy Harley who actually made the effort to ride his bike on natural terrain.

Haha! Kyle, you shameless self-promoter

Seriously folks, Kyle is a great guy and he needs your votes. I will vouch for him personally as a cool guy, a 'pretty fair' rider, an intern extraordinaire and a zoot capri Transition pilot.

(Kyle was my personal coach down the infamous Seattle Line at Beacon this year:
Gran Mal build complete!)

Vote Now!!

My second vote was for the Oregon kid (Mutonomah Falls/bridge shot opening) - - if for no other reason than he was another local I was trying to stuff the ballot box for Kyle but you had to vote for three different people My third vote I think was for the Mill Valley kid, just by virtue of the fact that he had the guts to included a bunch of his biffs too.

Kyle,
About those Blindsides... Have they cleared customs yet? If so, any idea what day pre-ordered frames will be going out?

i'm not sure, I am back at school now, so I am a little out of the loop. they usually get pics up on the site right after the new frames come in, so keep checking the site.

Photo just replaced the schematic in the last week I think; and the photo is of a built-up raw frame. So that might just be a proto. Patience, Matt, patience . . . .

Congrats Kyle!

Kyle did it! Way to go! He's one of four semi-finalists who'll head to Whistler for episode 12 of Drop In:

Rip it up, Kyle - -woohoo!
