Luke Parlsow Scores Podium Spot in Chicago


It was a wet one at the Chicago Dew Tour this weekend, and unfortunately dirt jumps melt when it rains all night long. Fuzzy and his crew worked tirelessly to get the jumps dried out and re-built for the competition and Luke Parlsow made it through the muck to nab a 3rd place finish with big backflip tailwhips, front flip table tops and double tailwhips. The next stop will be the Portland Dew Tour and hopefully the Vans team will get to ride some of the sick skateparks in their downtime. Congrats Luke!

Alistair July Update


From Alistair Whitton: Had a real fun day today. Started off hanging out with my two boys Brener and Carter. Then headed down to camp Woodward to do some activities. Ronnie Nap and myself rode the cage for a bit. I love how stock that place is, but has lots of fun lines and ramps. Then we geared up and rode some Moto. Wessel built this track like 10 years ago. It rips. Then I put my running shoes on and did some Parkour in the gym. I'm loving this free running stuff. Now I'm going to eat some food and go to bed just to be woken up every 2 hours by baby Carter. Laters" -Ali
