Lance hit us up with this update about what he’s got going on – First off I had knee surgery few months back before the DK contest. I had a huge chunk of cartilage removed and was back on my bike in couple weeks and and was able to do pretty well at the DK dirt circuit. Well I fell at that comp breaking another big chunk off and was trying to get by without getting it fixed again but it wasn’t happening. I tried get some riding and photo shoots in while in Vegas at Interbike but it was killing me. I came home and had knee surgery again last Wed the 14th. I was already back on my bike Monday taking it easy with some coaster wheelies and trying get my leg muscles strong again. So I’m good and healthy again! 2 knee surgeries in 3 months is lame! I’ll be in N.C. Tomorrow for shows thru Mon. Then I start filming a web edit for one of my sponsors Melee Faction Clothing. It should be done by end of Nov so keep your eyes peeled for that. Also I’m rolling up to Rays MTB park the first of Nov with the Melee Faction crew for some fun and filming. Then straight to Cali from there for more shows and media stuff.. Lots of good things happening….

A BIG thank you goes out to Ryan Sher from Subrosa, the Sparky’s Distribution crew, RideBMX and Alli Sports for helping us raise $3000 for the Athlete Recovery Fund this past weekend at the Orlando Dew Tour. Thanks to everyone that donated. Even though most of you didn’t win, your money is going to help guys like Mike Aitken and Stephen Murray and that is the most important thing. Read Ryan’s post about the fund raiser HERE.
Where do I begin? Yesterday was big! First, Maddog had Park qualifying and he was riding with a broken bone in his hand, which meant he had been taking it pretty easy during all the practice sessions. But during his 2 qualifying runs he threw down some huge tricks. He went down in both his runs which kept him out of the finals but the crowd was loving him. Good things are going to be happening for Brett next year! Gerber was in Dirt Finals and had some amazing runs with huge flip whips and 360 double whips. He had a little trouble in his 2nd run and ended up finishing 7th, but overall he had a great Dew Tour and will only get better next year. We are really proud of these two guys.
The night ended with RideBMX’s Best Trick comp sponsored by Dan’s Comp. The vibe at this contest was electric. It felt like a true old school jam session but with $5000 on the line. Amazing riders did amazing things and Anthony Napolitan was the winner with a 360 barspin catch barspin to tailwhip. You have to check out all the coverage at RideBMX. If you are at Dew Tour today be sure to stop by the RideBMX booth to get a chance at winning the last Subrosa bike. We’ve raised a lot of money for ARF this weekend and today is the last day of the Tour so please help out your fellow athletes. Thanks to RideBMX, Fuzzy Hall & Dew Tour for throwing one of the best events of the year!
Things were pretty uneventful for the Dan’s team today. Dirt practice was cancelled due to high winds. Maddog had practice for Park Qualifying on Saturday and took it easy to get used to the course. If you’re at the event tomorrow be sure to stop by the RideBMX booth & help raise money for the Athlete Recovery Fund. $1 gives you a chance at the 2 Subrosa Bikes that are up for grabs. Go to SUBROSA BIKES for the low down. Also, stick around after the Dirt Finals for the Best Trick Competition. It’s gonna be insane!
