Code Red 2014 + No Hands Down

In its second year now, Code Red Outlaw is undoubtedly Australia’s gnarliest DH outlaw track, with speeds quickly accelerating to over 80kmh and a +100ft drift needed for the dropping lefthander, it requires balls of steel and a solid style to handle the speed and cornering.

The Saturday started off as usual at the best little slalom racing weekend in existence, with a glorious day at Stromlo Forest Park, our awesome venue. We race on the Stephen Hodge Criterium Circuit which is normally reserved for bicycle racing. The course was a fairly loose 50 cones, with offset and a ‘gimme’ section that was really tricky. The…

MONKYPIG DERBY 2013.

 Its that time of year again MPD it was the day before we were due to race. The weather had been crap for four days now rain and cold wasn't looking good and the crew were getting a little on edge. A few were starting to say we should call it and race another day. After much deliberation and procrastination a few to many Jacks it was decided that we would wait till the morrow and call it early in the morning. I had finished all the jack and the bowl was empty so off to bed we went…

Lennox Heads Outlaw

After a month of planning, organising and getting stoked.  The morning of my very first organisation of an outlaw finally arrived. My body running full of nerves.

The morning was perfect, a hill packed with 40 racers and perfect sunny weather. After rider check-in, it was time for the serious business! Race time!

 

The round robin races were full of very close runs, and a couple of spills. Three major stand outs, dominating all of their heats were Josh…

Newtons Nation Final Wrap

Mt. Panorama, Bathurst: Kevin Reimer continued his dominance over the competition, making it three wins out of three at Newtons Nation. In a blistering final he passed Douglas Dalua Silva while coming out of the Dipper, and took on the notorious Forest Elbow with the barest of airbrakes, skimming the bales and rocketing down Conrod Straight with too much exit speed for the rest to catch.

Micah Green passed Dalua in the final straight to take second and cap an…

Newtons Nation Day 2 Wrap

Alex Tongue took home $1,000 in today's Sector 9 Top 10 Shootout, beating track-record holder Kevin Reimer in an exciting day's racing. One of the favourites, Brazilian Douglas "Dalua" Silva almost missed the shootout after crashing heavily earlier in the day, but got up off the massage table only to post an uncharacteristically slow time.

Earlier Canadian Dillon Stephens qualified for tomorrow's finals in first place, beating out two-time winner Kevin Reimer, Alex…

Newton's 2013 Race Format Revealed

It should be simple - the fastest guy down the hill wins. And while a China Bomb has a certain charm, we've gone the extra mile to come up with a way to run Newtons 2013 so that everybody gets the maximum amount of runs and stoke, while making sure that the fastest guy down the hill still wins.

It's a brand new format that has never been used before at World Cup level. Read below for all the gory details.

The Serious Business of Organizing Events

Taken from The IDF website

There are many reasons why the IDF came about. For years we wanted a real and legitimately accountable structure, we wanted to end the one man show, we want to bring economies of scale to our sport and direct funding to our riders and our events. We wanted to raise the professionalism for our members and utilize the skills that permeate across our sport but that have been under utilized for years. Some of these things we have succeeded at…
