Dare to Dream Extreme Video

Please take 30 minuets to see what one of our new Albertan hare scramble racers is involved with. Darins efforts has sent one of our very own SGC families on a trip of a lifetime because of his amazing heart.

From Darin Bullivant "We raised over $6000 for Children's Wish Foundation and sent an ill child on the adventure of a lifetime. I trained over 10,000 km of running, riding and dirt biking to prep and I had the time of my life. I still need to raise some more funds to get my goal so if you have any ideas...e-mail me. Enjoy and thanks to all my teams, trainers, partners, sponsors, family and friends, who helped and supported me. I am blessed by you!"

Alberta's Darin Bullivant Reviews Cactus Coulee!

Check out Darin  Bullivant's race report from Cactus Coulee!

Darin races in the Baja 500 and 1000 as well as many other triathlon events!

The Cactus Coulie race put on by the Second Gear club= fun, carnage, and all around good times. This was my first time racing in this series and I was impressed by the family oriented "feel" that the club creates.

Contour Plus helmet cam spied, offers wider view of your extreme antics

ContourHD Plus
If you're the type who likes to risk life and limb in pursuit of pleasure, then you know the best way to document your exploits is with a little helmet cam action. Bike Rumor is reporting that Contour, one the leaders in this (admittedly niche) field, will soon be releasing a new POV shooter called the Contour Plus. The site came across some Giant pro cyclers testing the device, who claim the Plus will improve on the ContourGPS by adding an HDMI-out port, boosting image quality, and widening the viewing angle from 140 degrees to 170. And, for those who really like to live dangerously, the Plus will supposedly pack a Bluetooth radio so you can stare at the iPhone viewfinder app while hurtling down a snow-covered slope or through an obstacle-riddled bike path. Of course, this is all unofficial at the moment, but the "little birdy" whispering in Bike Rumor's ear said the updated cam will land in the next month or two. One more blurry shot after the break.

Check out the Results from the Cactus Coulee Trials in Lethbridge. This year the boys and girls went European and used pin flags to mark out the trails, this made for for quick and easy setup, more interesting lines. And the fact there was not a tree in sight on this event site to tie a ribbon to, it made the Trials extremely easy to setup! That and you could tell what rider was doing trials as they had pin flags in their boots all day after teardown!

Cactus Coulee Race Report - Marty Halmazna



 Sunny and no wind. Wow! Winters over!  Round 1 of the CMA hare scramble series.  All was not to good off the start for me in the coulees near Lethbridge Albert. I thought that if I pushed my bike from the dead engine start line that I could push my bike to the 1st corner which was only a couple feet away and bump start it down the 1st drop into the ravine.  Well I guess all the rest of the Masters had the same plan. Anyways races was on and my Bowridge Sports FP Husky TC 449 was a pleasure to ride.

Brooklyn Motorized looks to bring classic styling to new-age electric motorcycles

One of the most beautiful things about motorcycles is that their styling is rather less restrained than your average automobile. Bikes have covered just about every shape and size, largely ignoring crash testing results and aerodynamic concerns, and the upcoming electric motorcycle from Brooklyn Motorized certainly makes little concession for either.
