Cob's Bike Stolen!!!

Go Pro After Otter Edit

If there was one common consensus at the After Jam besides how ridiculous the trails were... it was... there are way too many Go Pro's strapped to everyone. But after seeing this edit I'm kind of glad they did it.

Enjoy a new perspective on riding trails, or not...

Here's a link to an After the Otter edit from Justin Olsen that's up on VitalMTB.com with a few clips of Adam and me on the famous Aptos Step-Up...

P.S. I always case the first flip of the day.

Killswitch Production Update



Good morning... I woke up to an e mail from Pablo who is still in Taiwan overseeing production of both the Killswitch and his other projects he's working on right now. Pablo provided some photos of how assembly is going. We also have a firm ship date of May 10th now... and with the help of air freight we will have these Mutha's in our warehouse by May 15.

Production Killswitch in flat purple...

Black Market Tuned 02 RCX ready to rock the mic right...

Hammer-Links assembled and waiting to help connect front and rear triangles
of the baddest piece of machinery to rip a trail, flow a berm or pop a lip.

Hidden machining as seen on the backside if the Hammer-Link along with built-in bearing races for simplified assembly and maintenance.

KS BB detail: ISCG 05, replaceable BB shell & bearings...
Gold plated hardware is just the icing on the cake...

More From Sea Otter...

Here's a few more pics... Adam acted as team photog while Lisa, Jake and I rode dual slalom practice in our sweet new jerseys Chad Carother's designed us and we really have to thank
TheWinningTeam.com for getting those jerseys done for us in 3 days flat!!!

Lisa smiling as she pushes up the infamous Sea Otter D/S... this will get old shortly huh Lisa?

What goes up must come down and this is what puts the smile back on your face
after the push up...

Lisa jumps into the techy mud-bog rhythm section.

I was loving the bike just wished I had brought my clips and shoes from the home...

Will someone please make a decent non-neoprene knee pad???

Jake Kinney looking fast on his Killswitch.

Jake rally's into berm 1 at speed...

Lisa was not only the only woman on the pump track but she also competed against and beat a few of the dudes... specially the ones who didn't hit this berm to berm gap out of a tight left over 90 berm... Rad!!!
This is Lee... Lee likes bikes and built this pump track too...
We need more guys like Lee in the world!!!

Classic Sea Otter Pit Steeziness......

Justin Wyper came in from Canada with his Killswitch
loaded for bear... Can't wait to see him shred this year.

Pre Otter 2010!!!


It's April 14 th and Adam has made his annual Sea Otter trip west... after a full days travel & building up his bike Adam still had enough energy for quick evening session at the step-up.

Luckily we just had a bit of rain so the dirt was prime and the lip is still dialed from when we finished it a few weeks ago after the jackass on the 50 destroyed our work twice... I haven't really had a chance to ride it either since Adam's trip out due to a tweaked knee but we rode it today!!!
One for Sonia...
Here's a banger from the day...

Here We Go Again World Premiere at Sea Otter...


The world premiere VIP party will be on Saturday night, April 17th at the Blue Fin Cafe on Cannery Row in Monterey CA. Doors will open at 8pm, the film will begin around 9pm.

After the screening, there will be live entertainment, but the act is top secret! DH Productions pulled some strings to get this band. Due to the size of the venue, they cannot advertise the band's name but they are huge International Superstars of Rock. Let's just say they will "blow your top"! Admission is free and it will be all ages until 10pm. The club only holds 300-400 people, so space will be tight!

Thanks to the support of GT, Cannondale and Decline, the party and film will be streaming live on DeclineMagazine.com. Decline editor, Scott Hart, will be conducting red carpet interviews throughout the evening.

Here We Go Again... brings together the old and the new, from the Andes to the Appalachians. Fresh faced rippers team up with DH Productions’ stable of shredders, showing that no matter where you're at or who you are, it's all about having fun.

While secret stashes and untouchable locations are nice, Here We Go Again... draws upon DH Productions' DIY style and blue collar work ethic to feature rad spots all around the world - spots that are there for the taking. Look around you and see what you can find. This is their backyard sesh - where's yours?

“I’m stoked to be a part of their 25th project. I’ve been working with Hampton since the early days of the Chain Reaction series and I have been in nearly every title since.” Says Cannondale/Red Bull rider, Aaron Chase, “Each year Don and his crew step up their production level and this year is no exception”.

“I'm usually my biggest critic, but I'm really stoked on this one!!! Hopefully the rest of the MTB world is too. Co-director, Gardner Raymond brought a fresh style and a ton of creativity to the project. All of the sections are super strong, the soundtrack is amazing and the bonus section is loaded with quality material!” Explains four time Emmy Award winning producer/director, Don Hampton.
Featured riders include, Aaron Chase, Jeff Lenosky, Adam Hauck, Dave Smutok, Kyle Ebbett, George Ryan, Lars Tribus, Chris & Nick Van Dine, Mick Hannah, Randy Spangler, Carter Holland, Tyler & Cam McCaul, Jamie Goldman, Justin Wyper, Sam Dueck, Eric Porter, Steve Smith, Dylan Korba, Kevin Aiello, Marc Beaumont, Joe Perrizo, and more.

For those who could not attend the Sea Otter premiere party, we will be screening the DVD at the following locations:
- The Cannondale/GT Pit area at Sea Otter on Sunday afternoon with an autograph session.
- After the Post Office Jam in Aptos, CA on Monday April 19th in association with Epic Center bike shop.
- At the opening weekend of Highland MTB Park on May 8th.

If you are interesting in hosting your our Here We Go Again.... screening party as part of the HWGA World Tour, please contact DH Productions for details.

DH Productions would like to thank the sponsors of the DVD: Cannondale, GT, College Cyclery, Decline, Atomlab, Gravity and Highland Mountain Bike Park.
