Louis Hamilton may be one of the lesser recognised downhillers of New Zealand but that doesn’t mean he isn’t fast. As per usual he delivers in spades in this edit, a sort of prelude to heading over for his first World Cups of the year. Filmed and Edited by Thomas Falconer – Intheframemedia.co.nz
The Giant All Mountain Cartel get buck wild at the latest round of the Queensland Enduro Series.
Round one of the Yakima Sunshine Series for 2014 opened at Cedar Creek for a weekend of loose runs down Nik Jasinski’s track – “Hell’s Descent”. The famously steep and dusty track was raced late in the 2013 season, the dusty brown powder from last years race was replaced with grip and hero dirt for the 2014 opener. Chris Kovarik said the track was in the best condition he had seen it. The prime conditions set the scene for a fast weekend of racing, with a stacked top end of the field showing up to start the season.
Despite the perfect conditions, the track still proved to be a big challenge. Saturday practice saw a heap of the corners starting to get blown out – a sign of things to come.

The consensus in the AIR DH tent, however, was relatively clear. With only small amounts of ‘clearing rain’ forecast for the weekend, the senior riders held off taking to the track on Saturday morning, relying on the chance that the track would dry by mid-session and allow for practise on a course with similar conditions to what would be raced on Sunday. Henry, on the other hand, couldn’t resist the fun to be had in the mud and spent his morning getting dirty and two-wheel drifting his way down the track! The waiting game paid high dividends for the team as the sun came out at midday and grip was increasing every run out on course. …View More
