Whistler Canada Here We Come!

Postby fabio on Sat 10/Apr/10 8:52am

Hey all FABIO here!!... been a while since I last jumped on here...cause I've been riding again!!!! hahahaa So as you may or may not know I got hooked up with an awesome custom built R-One fourcross designed and built in Canada by R-One and Stacy Kohut world champ.

Over the last two years that I've had the R-One I've been getting out and mixing it up as much as I possibly can . As you all know Wellington has limited riding and even more limited are the amount of really steep long knarly downhills and access to them! I don't think I will have any trouble in Whistler!

Check out the vids on this link to see what I've been doing:

During the month of August Whistler is hosting Crankworx and I arrive one week prior to this major mountain biking event! I'm pretty keen to enter a couple of the events to see where I stand lol or sit in terms of other riders doing this. As far as I'm aware I'm the only dude doing this in Australasia or the Southern Hemisphere for that matter so watching videos on youtube of Stacy Kohut is all I have to go by up until till I arrive on Whistler.

Hamish Kay (Wellington DH / BDA / BMX ) rider / lol my mechanic and right hand man will be riding the slopes with me for 3 weeks. I'm very appreciative of this as I want to capture this entire journey on HD helmet cams and MiniDV cams. The goal is to edit all the footage together in a doco style film to sell to media and also as an inspirational story that can be shown to those that have had serious accidents in hope it will motivate them to not give up on life or dreams.

Hope you guys enjoy the video posts on that link....watch this space for Whistler footage and CRANKWORX.

Fabiooooooooooooo! :thumbsup:

Ya Ya ya... limited for me in a 1.2 meter wide Rig....

Loving the look of MAidstone though looks nice and wide keen as to check it out.

Anyone unemployed or not working during the weeks wanting to shuttle with me ?? Let me know I'm always free and keen :)
Must be strong, trustworthy able to leave from Lyall Bay and hold a full license.,two peeps better than one in places like Long Gully but we can make do with tracks such as Miramar and Mt Vic with just one rider.
Cheers

Two months to go!!

Hi,

I broke C6 three months ago while riding on the port hills. Found the R one website last week and was pretty excited. I'm still in Burwood Hospital at the moment but rehab is going well. I'm hoping to get back enough to ride fourcross but there is no where to ride one down here. Would love to get in touch with you down the road.

Have a blast in Whistler,
John
