At the end of August of last year, Kelly McGarry, Eric Porter and Chris Vandine ventured off to the “Last Frontier”, Alaska! Harookz was on hand to capture all the action on still format. Here are a few sneak previews he put together to give us a small taste of what went down without spoiling the bangers in the magazine articles!
Here is a video shot on the final day of our AK trip. After fighting with dark clouds and rain all week, the light fired for us on our last session. Articles from this trip will be out in print tomorrow!
The Gravity team trip to AK was quite the success! Articles from this trip will be out in print on March 1st, stay tuned. Here is one of 7 videos from our expedition that shows the type of terrain we were working with. Head over to the video gallery to view the rest of our AK vids.
Congrats to MS-Evil/Gravity team rider Filip Polc for winning the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo race in Chile! It is labeled as one of the craziest urban downhill races in the world. Check out his helmet cam footage below to see for yourself.
An update from Kelly McGarry:
Well it has been 3 weeks since I came into contact with planet earth at a great rate of knots and broke my collar bone. I have been doing a fair bit of rehab stuff trying to get it working but at the end of the day a bone still takes 6 weeks to fully heal to the same strength it was. I have migrated to Queenstown now and I’m loving it down ere!! The new skyline gondola setup is off the CHIZ AIN!! This place is going to take off, it’s a great opposite season to Whistler so you can cut laps on your bike THE WHOLE YEAR! Woooohoooo!
My collarbone is starting to feel a bit stronger and I have been out for a couple of chilled rides.
Fingers crossed I will be able to have a roll at Farm Jam in a week!
