Ultimate bike day

Today I went to the Adelaide premier for Disorder V and Focused. We were luky enough to have one of the stars come to watch, local hucker Grant Allen. After watching these all one hundered and something riders who watched rode through the city of adelaide on DJ, DH, Fr bikes and went to the local DJ area. Here there was a celabration of Volatile Visions, local Dort Jumping company, 10 year anniversary.

At the party there was a free BBQ and a dirt jump contest. Here Grant Allen was showing his skills to the locals and pulling supermans and Can-Cans. Then some of the local DHers on big travel bikes started to hit the vert lips and the action had started. At one point Grant Allen was leading a train of riders through the jumps and he stacked, about 5 other riders had to do huge bails to get out of the way. While I was taking photos I was next to one of the jumps and suddenly Grant transfered lines and jumped straight ove me, it was so freaky.

After this me and some friends went to a DH track and had some fun. Unfortunately I had to leave early after pinch flatting my front wheel after drifting into a drop and landing crooked on rocks.

All in all it was a hell fun day.

Here are some pics of the Dirt Jam.
The first three are Grant Allen

He has cut it a bit, but it's still really bushy under the helmet.
