Maryhill Festival of Speed 2011

All in a day’s work… On Sunday July 3, Seismic wheels and bearings took 2nd place in Men’s Open Downhill at the Maryhill Festival of Speed (Tim Del Rosario), took 3rd place in the Junior Downhill at Maryhill (Austin Joseph Nicassio), and also 3rd in Street Luge (Christian Conaway). Congrats to all!

After Maryhill, we had a chance to catch up with Austin Joseph Nicassio and find out how our 76 mm Purple Hot Spots performed throughout the event:

“The best thing for me was their acceleration in and out of turns, the performance core complimented the outstanding rebound of the black opps urethane that created the exit speeds necessary for racing and advancing on the Maryhill Loops Road. Along with the core helping exit speeds, it also kept my wheel lips stronger which allowed me to have a more firm yet smaller contact patch and intern still offer more grip for more nimble and faster racing lines than my opponents.”
