Oh to racing Al Boyle from Gong getting some great results in both races too.

Also best overall results for groms go to young powerhouse Chris Miris & Alex Marriot. Yewww...skate it all kids.

I can see Chris being a seriously strong slalom competitor in the next year or so, if he does a little bit more practice. That's my prediction.

Thanks Fitz, nice of you to notice that little detail.

Dave Miller was skating insanely rad all weekend which was a reflection of

how stoked he was to be skating with his bros & how much fun he was having.

Everyone should approach their skating in this way, because that's the way it should be. Free your ego, clear your mind & share the stoke. Skate everything.

I think it's rad having an overall weekend champion of stoke & some sort of perpetual trophy that gets handed over each year.

Which is what we did for the NACCOS race this year. Simon Duber is the current Overall Stoke Champion for 2013..... And a well deserving one at that, because Duber stoke level is very high.

He proudly displays 'The Perpetual Precious Pelvis Trophy' (also crafted by Dubes) in his mancave at home.

Maybe the CROSS Committee could give this some consideration at their

next shred together.  

Just an idea.....

what a rad weekend, don't worry fitz the next one is being moved forward to march.

saturday was loads of fun and we got a host of new canberra blood in the mix and hooked on slalom.

Sunday is always the day that I look forward to the most, loads of fun and again more new riders hitting the drain.

thsanks to all the CROSS guys (Dave, Paul Neil, Scotty, Evan, Ross and anyone I forgot) for running one of my favorite events, the ASRA guys (Nathan, Simon, Ryan and paul) for running the timing system and all the guys who came out to shred!

Wow. Some interesting results at Stromlo.

Dubes in 3rd and Chris Miris up to 12th. Crongrats

Pickles and Ross down to 9th and 10th What happened there? Bearing failure? Knee blowout?

I missed not being able to come this year. I don't remember the last time I couldn't make it to Capital Punishment.

Absolute ripping weekend in the Capital once again.

Thanks to all the CROSS family for the hard work put into these epic events year after year. Raddness guaranteed. 

Stoked to road trip down with a great crew from NACCOS.

Thanks to Dubes, Nathan & Pickles for sharing the road stoke.

And to think it's only 6 months till they do it all again.
