october...

looked after the spaniel ranch a fair bit last year, took the crew up the woods a few times but they never stay still long enough to get a photo so this one sums them up quite nicely...

leaves took awhile to fall last october and we got to ride into the month more than the year before. the trails were pretty dialled in and smooth and we had some good sessions...

megalaga...

some uk dudes in malaga. man i been meaning to go myself for months now, weather has been looking good over there most of the winter.

theo...

some nice trails all over france and gabi's in spain. i posted before about meeting theo and his friend mathias when we were in malaga last time and how i'd taken some photos of them both riding...and you can see them doing trains and me taking those photos 40.s in. will have to find all the malaga photos out...i dont think i ever posted anything from that trip. still can't believe someone like mathias who was just a young guy happy riding his bike could end up tragically dying so senselessly in the paris massacre.

banos...

man banos looks so nice but also looks real scary... couple of crashes on this i wouldn't have fancied taking one bit!!!

east coast trails...

darin read shola vid...

might have posted this before but ya know...

r.i.p mathias...

i met mathias and his friend theophile at gabi's trails last time we visited malaga earlier this year. they were both very friendly guys and talented bike riders, i got some great photos of both of them that day that i will have to find out. some footage from that session is in the video below. it was a big shock to learn mathias had died in such a senseless and brutal way during the paris attacks, a great shame and my heart goes out to his family and friends. here are theophile's words a video he made celebrating him. r.i.p mathias.
"My My, Hey hey,
Rock'n' roll is here to stay,
It's better to burn out,
Than to fade away..."
Mathias faisait partie de ces gens, fans de rock'n roll qui allaient profiter de la vie avec ses copains et sa chérie au Bataclan ce vendredi 13 novembre 2015... au mauvais endroit au mauvais moment. Il était fan de Rock mais avant tout il était passionné de petit vélo acrobatique...et c'est grâce à cela que beaucoup d'entre nous le connaisse! Je n'avais jamais pris le temps de faire une part solo pour le bon Mc Cain, mais par contre il était dans toutes nos vidéos de roadtrip car il était toujours partant pour voyager avec les copains. Je corrige le tir en lui réalisant ce montage avec les plus belles images de lui qui trainaient sur mes disques durs. La sélection fut difficile car le gamin est doué et il est très photogénique... J’espère que tu pourras voir ça depuis la haut, avec ta belle Marie. A jamais dans nos cœurs, on continuera à t’emmener partout avec nous! Sur nos petits vélos! On vous aime! Pour Mathias et Marie

Mathias was one of those people, rock’n’roll fans who would enjoy life with his friends and his girlfriend at the Bataclan this Friday, November 13, 2015 … the wrong place at the wrong time. He was a fan of Rock but above all he was passionate small acrobatic bike … and it is thanks to this that many of us know him! I had never taken the time to do a solo part for the good McCain, but he was against all our roadtrip videos because he was always ready to travel with friends. I fixes it by making him the installation with the best pictures of him lying around on my hard drives. The selection was difficult because the kid is talented and he is very photogenic … I hope you can see this from the top, with your beautiful Mary. Forever in our hearts, we will continue to take you everywhere with us! On our little bikes! We like you! Mathias and Marie
