Check out Daddies Board Shop team rider Alex Tongue in Big Wheels and Longboards! He joins fellow Orangatang riders, including the much loved Patrick Switzer and Maxim Garant Rouseau, in an awesome run down the Italian Alps. Aside from some amazing longboarding its awesome to see those other guys going down and drifting and sliding around everywhere on those gnarly big wheel tricycles. All of the Orangatang riders really seem to favor those 80a 4 Presidents and In Heats. Im curious to see if Orangatang will be using their new Euphorethane, thats featured in the new Balut’s, and implementing it in their other wheels. I would love to have a set of 4 Presidents that I could get a little more life out of!
Out at the Downhill corral there was a Push race… and what is a push race if Robin “The Leg” McGuirk isnt racing in it? Naturally he took home the gold and you better believe we were stoked. But that was just the first bit of good news. SO as far as events went Daddies Team Riders took home that event! Thanks Brandon Dejariais’ mom for the pic!
Next We had some boarder cross! This is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen on a course. Robin boosted it but there was a collision that ended up taking him out too. It turned into a scramble for the finish line and Robin finished 3rd. I bet he would have had it if someone in front wouldnt have taken him out! Next time Robin!!! But third isnt bad at all So Robin ended up on two podiums, 1st in the push race and 3rd in boarder cross
