Catching up With Dilly

Dilly sent over a little update form the weekend. (Dilly) I went out filming for my part in the New Demolition Video that is currently in the works called "Last
Chance". It was a fun little rail hop spot
and got a few thing so that was good. You can see the cloud in the
back ground coming in so we got lucky to get a few clips in just in

I'm plan on going out as much as possible over the next month. It's coming down to
deadline time and hopefully I can find some new spots and get finished with
my section.

Merry Xmas and a happy new year everyone!

Dillewaard back in Aus.

 Hey guys,

I just got back to Australia and it's been a good week so far! We have had a few rainy days but other than that its sunny hot and humid. I hit up a Xmas Jam at Browns plains skate park on Sunday. It was set to be a real fun day but I only got to ride for about 45 minutes when the wind and clouds rolled over and it poured down. That Sucked but it was still good to catch up with my mates. I plan on hitting a few good spots later in the week. Keen on finishing up my part for the Demolition video for sure!

Cheers Dave

Mike's Back

Aaaaand I’m back....After months of recovery and physical therapy I finally got cleared to ride the track! The past five and half months since my surgery have flown by and I headed out to my local track to see how it felt to be back in action. I have to admit I haven’t been that nervous in a long time, not because I haven’t ridden in a while, but because it was the first time I was going to truly feel and experience what riding would be like after surgery. I had a great warm up and began to feel really comfortable after a few laps, and I have to say it didn’t feel all that bad! While I could still feel where my injury had happened it felt 10 times better than some of the practice sessions I had right before deciding to get fixed. I rode for 45 minutes and words can’t explain how pumped I was to be back doing what I love… I honestly could have ridden the whole day. I only had a few dead sailors and thankfully no cases…baby steps! To be honest I didn’t really get off the ground much but WOW! what a great feeling to be back on track! I have teamed up with Clay Porter for a project we are working on and he caught all of this on tape. Stay tuned for details on my collaboration with Clay as I am really excited about it and I think you will be too!

I also had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for Leatt Brace and to promote my signature brace out now (see photo of the ad'). It is cool to be supported by a company like Leatt who is so committed to the safety of athletes.

I will be at the Grands this year and hopefully the last time watching as I hope to get back to racing in Reno. I plan on practice Thursday and just hanging out the rest of the weekend. This will be my 17th trip to Oklahoma for thanksgiving. Pretty crazy.

Dilley's Down Time

Hey Guys,

Its been a slow week here. We have been getting some crazy storms pretty much every day so its been hard to ride.

The wrist is at about 85% right now, and I have been trying to do some weights and get it strong again and I can tell it's working. Feeling better every day, Cam Whites Dirt Jam is on this weekend coming but I wont be hitting that this year. I would but I think its too soon to be hitting 40 foot + jumps. One wrong move on those things and its over, I'm better of just taking it easy and get 100% before I hit any massive jumps.

So here is a pic of what the weather is like today. Going to rain any minute now so I'm going to dial my bike in so when it stops and I can roll around.

A Life-Changing Story

Not that anyone needed an excuse to ride a bike, but have a read of this letter we got from a GT fan:

Hello, my name is Tim and I am writing you this letter just to let you know of the successes you have helped me achieve.

I am a 35 year old truck driver in Ontario Canada. Up until June 2009 I was an overweight smoking asthmatic non-physical truck driver. June was the month when my life began to change. A friend of mine who was also a driver asked me to come for a ride. Needless to say after that first ride I thought I was going to die from exhaustion but that fresh air and blood boiling adrenaline got into my soul so I called a old friend of mine who use to be one of the best bike mechanics in the town where I live and told him I need a better bike.

So he took me to Mountaintop cycle and I sold my old car and bought a 2009 GT Marathon sport. I found myself going bike crazy. I now have a list of friends I can ride with almost at any time, I lost 40lbs, my blood pressure is great, my cardio is spot on and I put over 1000 kilometers on my GT from July till November. Thanks to you for making a bike so perfect for me to ride; thank you so much. In 2010 I plan to start competing in some racing and I hope to put double the kms on this year. Got to go now; going to play in the snow on my GT.

Congrats, Tim! Glad you were able to achieve so much success in getting healthy on your GT. Anyone else have stories of how riding helped transform their life? If so, either post here or write a note on your own wall and tag us.

Dilley Update

Hey Guys,

It's been a chill few weeks for me since I have been back in Australia. I have just been hanging out with the Fam and catching up with my mates.

My wrist is feeling good and I have been doing some physical therapy and stretches to get it back into action. I should be back cruising around in 2 weeks so hopefully that goes well! Im excited for 2010 and ready to ride!
