Four of our Colorado team riders will be participating this weekend and we want to share their set ups, tips and expectations for this race. Even though it’s their first time to race at BBDH, it’s definitely not their first time on this racecourse. They know Look Out Mountain like the back of their hands:

Yo. I’m Dre Grizzly, I think. I’m a RADo rider and like all RADo riders. Around this time, I’m getting prepped and ready for BBDH. My set up consists of 76mm 80a Hotspots, Landyatchz 9two5, and 45° Grizzly precision trucks. With this being my first BBDH, I’m rocking this set up because it’s comfortable and I know the course like the back of my hand. I’m rocking the 76mm 80a Hotspots for simply roll speed, grip and slide. If you’ve ever been on a set Hotspots (which I’m sure you have), you know that these three characteristics are all packed into this wheel. The course isn’t super hard. A few fast turns, a few hairpins, speeds range from 40-45. ADVICE FOR NEW RIDERS: KICK OUT AHEAD OF COOP AND STAY AHEAD OF COOP!!! Joking. Coop’s a rad guy so make sure you introduce yourself to him. Have fun and kick it pagan-style for a few days.

Brian Lugbill from Seismic here. I’m rocking a 39″ proto Seismic single-kick deck on 180mm Gunmetal trucks with Seismic Speed Vents 73mm Red 81A (Elixir Freeride Formula) for the technical course. BBDH is a truly classic hill that is long and technical enough to allow for passes to be made on the way to the bottom. My only tip would be to have fun, and stay alert in the heavy packs that are sure to come on freeride runs.

Colorado Riders: Devon Reece and Shaquille James

Captain Reece here. For my first experience racing Buffalo Bill Downhill Bloodspill this year I’m going to be rocking blue 77mm/80a Speed Vents. The Buffalo Bill course is a hometown favorite, and the top roll speed capabilities will be awesome for the first half of the track, which includes a couple easy corners amongst some straightaways. While super fun, it isn’t the fastest hill around, so I have a feeling that bigger wheel speed will help quite a bit. The second half of the course is nice and technical with four hairpins. The 80a durometer breaks into a sweet, controllable drift after a couple of break-in slides, and the EC core utilized in these wheels will offer a quick acceleration coming out of corners. The 77mm Speed Vents are going to feel sick!!!

 

Shaq Daddy Shredding

Shaq Daddy Shredding

The name is Shaquille, but you can call me Shaq Daddy;) This will be my first time racing and I’ll be rocking some 76mm blue Hotspots, Tekton Bearings, Arbor 38 Vugenhauen, Ronin Trucks and a really cool foot stop that my friend made for me. I dig the 76mm Hotspots because they are fast, grippy and have a very nice slide. Plus for a bigger wheel they have awesome exit speed out of Colorado styled hairpins. BBDH is a dope course that brings a little of everything to the table. Skate fast, skate safe.
