watch this!

Mat Olson came to visit from snowy Colorado around January. He stayed at the

Casselberry Trails in a tent for over a week. This is only a small 20 minute session we were able to capture. Mat was throwing it down and seemed to adapt well to these trails. Check out more at and stay posted to Believe. Focus. Finish.

no winter yet, it'll come...

"someone's been eating their carots"
guess who an win a prize....

now i don't no about you but this is something i've been wanting to do for a while now but just never get around to put'n a speedo on my dam ride (no not a budgie smuggler speedo's fools), the boys at TRAILS4LIFE are sure having fun, my new fav site! (i'm a trails site whore mind you, who isn't) an the vid below goes to show how much fun these boys are having, yup i'm jealous, but i guess we all have to deal with shitty weather one way or another, trails are so seasonal & inspirational. I love the name, it say's it all "trails for life" fuck yeah!

trails heads come & trails heads go, one big liteul family!........we'll be seeing ya!

the new SOUL is out....or on it's way! Hell yeah Ben it's all about the nose dive, yeeeeeeeow!
i know ya got soul!

"you can make anything you want out of dirt"
......the rant of a digger @ d Gorge.

well it's less than a month till the middle of winter & you kno what that means yup the days get longer, an spring bekons. Mother nature sure has been hella nasty to NZ lately with gnarly earthquake's, tornado's & flooding the list goes on but were's winter, who really cares the longer the dreaded cold stays away the better & with it comes the likely hood of more chances of mid winter roast'in! Mother nature hasn't unleashed her full winter fury yet down here, but no doubt she will & it'll suck, old injuries will ache, digg'in will get done & we might even dream a roast'in, i kno i do! So what's the best way to start the day mm mmm i kno checking DELUXE out 'cos Mark & his team always serve up the dirty goods......TRAILS they feel dam rad to ride, ya hang'in with ya mates having a goodtime, why else would we dig? (an ride).

ps here's some naughty R18 footy, don't crack a woody now!
TRAILS TV is back haha just for you Dingo! Loads & loads of old & new footy from the world full a trails, it's motivational & inspiration so kick back & enjoy! Thanks to everyone out there for the foooty!

so stay warm, light fires & dig trails with ya mates (this to keeps ya warm ha!)
life is a journey to be enjoyed & lived!
...i'm sure Frog would agree.

Dean fuck'in rules it big time! One of the styliest riders i've seen ride the Gorge ever, an a bunch a loyal hard working local gorge digging beasts will agree! Bring ya tatoo gun next time ya here Dean, ink us up man!


On January 15, 2011 Brian Yeagle took a really hard slam to his head while in Las Vegas on a Verde filming trip. He sustained a fractured skull and minor bleeding in his brain. Brian is in stable condition, perfectly coherent and in good spirits . Everyone please keep Yeagle in your thoughts and wish him good luck for a speedy recovery. More soon...

So it's spring time up north an trails are getting lovingly beatin back into shape for another season a slaying, it's getting to the time of the year here in New Zealand, when the northern hemisphere's trails keep us motivated, which helps with surviving winter, rough. Here in QT it's mid autumn, sunny'ish & the southerly wind is fucking cold. The end of another season has been looming over us all for the past month, dreadfully that time has come, the sound of tryes wizzing, buzzing, purring & whining up lips has become a distant shadow of a echo.

The Gorge is tooo wet, chained up, the sun's rays are gone along with the leaves of summer, shortly the tarps will go on & only more good memories will remain to keep company the trails thru hibernation, yup it's all over for another season. Isn't it so amazing how good the rides are so late in the season, the whole time while floating thru the air you think "i love this feeling" or "this could be the last run i have" as darkness falls, this is the last of the last.

We'll be forming a "get thru winter with no roasting" support group, no it's already formed ha ha! We all still remember our last roll's thru, what ever line we chose. What a feeling & what a awesome season it's been, so a massive thanks goes out to the whole Gorge crew & to all the rad riders who came thru over summer, you kno who you are, we'll be seeing ya again sometime thru the next slayin season.

So whether your heading into a new trails season or it's over like it is down here at the Gorge, stay focused, maintain & dig n ride trails(some how).............inspirational food for thought!
