As preparation for the 2010 season begins, we find ourselves overwhelmed with events and a long "to do" list. We will be going to twice the number of events as last year, making more films and improvements to the Loco and having a great time with our newest addition, "Chewy"
Chewy is the Loco's new mascot, an african pygmy goat. He will be touring with the Loco and it's crew to most of the events in his own trailer. Ryan Ricker and I picked up Chewy from Langley around the end of August. Since then, Chewy has been clearing yards, shredding ramps, making friends, and getting prepared for the upcoming trips.
The Loco will be going to Kimberley for a visit to Jody Wilcocks house in the upcoming weeks. A new interior and motor tune up will brighten spirits and insure we make it to all of our events this year. The windows are getting replaced and we're also considering the idea of giving the driver a working windshield wiper this time around, and that's just a few of the items that's on the "to do" list.
Our first trip is going to be down to Maryhill for a freeride session. Then back to Vancouver for Coast Longboarding outlaw event, Cypress Barefoot Challenge. After the barefoot carnage, it's off to 2010's first sanctioned race, Shawnigan Lake Shredder. The Loco will be busy every week on until the end of the race season!
We are very excited for this 2010 race season. Hopefully you get a chance to ride the Loco or join us on of our many crazy adventures!
