Austin Nicassio leads the pack into the second part of the race course.
July 10, 2011 The crew was again gathered in Temecula, Ca for SDDRL #31 “Mob Rules.” It was a nice, sunny and warm day for everyone meeting on a secluded street that ended in a dead end.

There was a Mens class and a Juniors class for the racing. Juniors being under 18. There was also a special luge race held in the midst of it all.
That rubber you smell isn’t from any car tires. It’s just our shoes.

The hill was fast and there was lots of very exciting racing. Lots of tight packs and neck to neck finishes.

Renegade Rollergirls Rock and Roller Derby
After the first few minutes of the roller derby there was already tons of action as girls slammed, checked and tripped each other.
Two girls (one from each team) would start at the back of the pack wearing stars on their helmets making them the Jammers for the team. The Jammers would score points by passing all the blockers. Everyone who wasn’t a Jammer was a Blocker with the mission to stop the Jammers from passing at all costs.
Each pass made by the Jammer earned the team 3 points.
The match up was the Dukebox Heroes (in the white shirts) vs. the Buns & Roses (in the black shirts). Both teams battled hard for the win. The skating rink was their battlefield.
The rules? Well, there aren’t many. Anything goes here.
After seeing flying fists, elbows being thrown, roller skates taken to the thigh and even many more slide tackles the Dukebox Heroes took the win with a final score of 87-81.
Visit the Renegade Roller girls of Orange County website to find more info about their upcoming matches and find them on Facebook. The matches occur at the Holiday Skate Center in Orange, California.
A killer local band named Tyranis played for the halftime show.
Go Skateboarding Day 2011
A skateboard was built for basically one thing. To have fun with. It is a form of expression, how you get from one spot to another. There are so many different types of skateboarding. Different types of skateboards and different skateboarders. Each person mentally has the same goal of having fun.
Today June 21 is national go skateboarding day. Go out push some wood, and wish everyone a happy go skateboarding day. Remember, Safety First!
Get out and skate, its national go skateboarding day!
SDDRL # 30 “Boardstock”
NOTE: CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO PULL UP THE WHOLE SET OF 81 PHOTOS!
It was another day at the Poway Pump Station as the crew met up for SDDRL #30. After pulling up and seeing such a rad crew of rippers, I knew it would be a good day of racing and hanging out with all the homies.

There was a good mix of racers with all sorts of backgrounds. There were skateboard legends, professional riders, new racers and groms all in the mix competing for trophies, cash and glory.

Boogie on down to the downhill disco
Disco balls, dancing shoes and a course designed to test out the skills of everyone who competed. That’s right! It was again time for the 2011 Downhill Disco presented by www.muirskate.com.
Everyone was stoked to be at the 2011 Downhill Disco
The course this year set the bar for years to come. “I think that kickers are going to be the big thing for the next 12 months, so you guys learn how to do them because we’re gonna do it next year too” said www.muiskate.com shop owner Scott Lembach.
What a totally disco toeside through the cones
With a constant barrage of people coming down the hill and various features set up throughout the course there was never a dull moment.
Andrew Mercado tuck knee
The riders competing in the event were separated into two different groups based on age. The younger riders were called the Disco Squad and the older group was called the A-Team.
Daniel Ralph Luna gets pitted in the Muirskate blvd tunnel
There was a race in which they timed how long it took riders to make it through the course. The course was a cones course designed to be difficult to navigate through. It included jump ramps, tunnels and a hippy jump to make things interesting for the riders and the spectators.
Through the tunnel and over the ramp is where Mike Montjoy likes to go
After the race was held for both competing groups a slide jam was held. The slide jam was full of features to help riders keep ripping.
Chance Gaul winds up for the 360
Out of all the features the big kicker ramp was the focal point. Riders were going huge. Many 180′s and even a 360 were thrown down in the list of tricks landed. No big deal.
Chance Gaul CAN fly!
The gnar bar got raised a step further when 3 brave men decided to lay at the end of the kicker ramp as skaters launched over them. 3 people soon turned to 4. It was then raised again when someone decided to sit in a green plastic chair, letting riders launch clear over his head.
Brett Ciabattini launches overa brave man chatting on the phone
The amount of people launching off the ramps, attempting and landing 180′s and getting some hang time blew me away. Everyone was sliding, and jumping, and moving to the beat.
Congratulations to the winners!

Southridge USA – Race 2 (Super D)
The second race of the Southridge Winter Series surprised racers competing in the Super D with an unusually long course – with more elevation gain than past races. By combing both hills surrounding the water tower road, competitors were handed a 10 minute course, with most pros finishing in the nine minute mark. Technically sound, the course was a test of both ones fitness and riding abilities. Future Super D racers should take note that Fontucky’s courses are just about to get tougher.

SDDRL # 24 “Another Brick in the Wall”
Video: Edit by Max Capps
Around 11am everyone met just past the finish line ready to race, or ready to enjoy the race. SDDRL (San Diego Downhill Racing League) was at it again with race #24. The hill known as “The Wall” featured a hidden 10′ mega bowl just past the finish line. Everyone was stoked. Racers kicked from the starting line the pinned it to the finish line. This hill is just a straight away that goes straight down a large hill with beautiful surroundings. It was a fun race and a few first time racers came out. There was some confusion to the way the whole event was being run, but at the end off the day everyone had a good time.
