As every winter, Jeremy Menduni headed to Spain and met up with Walter Mayerhofer to escape the harsh Canadian winter. Barcelona is the easy destination and a definite must for any rider, but this time, the boys wanted to try something new. Walter had previously visited some of the Canary Islands so he knew that the warm weather and good spots would make it for a solid winter escape. Next thing you know, Team 28 (referring to Walter and JJ’s age) packed up their The Rise Partymasters and headed to Tenerife!
The 48th episode of our Unexpected Thursday serie showcases all the riding the guys got up to on this beautiful volcanic Island. JJ and Walter want to give a big thank you to Fran Luis and all the locals for showing them all the spots, the best food places and simply for making them feel so welcomed. We’ll definitely be coming back!
Peep the video above and the photogallery below, both brought to you by the one and only Jeremy Menduni.
Before it gets too cold to ride bikes outside, we had to visit The Brose Farm for one last weekend to shred some of the finest jumps Ontario has to offer. Surrounded by a lake, fields and forests, The Brose Farm is one of the nicest place to ride bikes during the Fall season. The colder weather is perfect to hold the dirt together and the surroundings are simply beautiful to look at when you're on top of the rollin trying to catch your breath. Since out Austria team rider John New was in Canada, it was a must to bring him over there to show him how nice of a place it is. Despite having our sunday session cancelled by the rain, everyone had a bast and we can't wait to go back next year! Not too sure how to put this in words, but there's a lot of sick stuff in this one. Ben Desjardins sets the bar pretty high right off the start, followed by riding from Zach Horne, Al Faruggia, Michel Plonka and John New. Peep the video above and the pictures below. Huge shoutout to Josh Brose and the Brose family for being awesome people and always treating us like kings!
