Getting in the van to Kimberly’s Sully fest was an adventure that on paper was set to be one long, crazy trip. The drive being 13 hours from Vancouver and having a full van, it was hard to tell if it was going to be a journey of suffering, or pleasure…

We got into Nelson… for a swift 6:45am arrival. The small town German vibe of Kimberley spreads from the scenery right into the decor, but (not that I know first hand) does not translate into their downhill skateboarding culture.

This race was off the rails, controlled chaos is how it really felt.


Striker spent a lot of time in the middle of crash corner egging on spectators and yelling at passing racers.

The race wound down into the finals, and the podium fell with team rider Troy Grenier on top and Grizz in third bringing home some diaper money!
