Road Bike Party 2: The Making of – Martyn’s Custom Colnago C59 Disc

first_imgI’ve watched that quite a few times now, and am still blown away.Equally amazing and inspiring is Martyn’s positive attitude even after spending over 100 days in the hospital after falling from about 10 feet during his Animal WD40 Action Sports Tour demo at the Silverston Moto Gp Race, and consequently damaging his spine with a dislocated T9 and T10 vertebrae. The accident meant a setback to finishing Road Bike Party 2, until Chris Akrigg and Danny MacAskill stepped up to help finish the film. The result is history. The disc equipped C59 was fitted with custom Hope Trial Zone hydraulic disc brakes, which are essentially mountain bike levers custom machined to fit on a drop bar. Shifting duties are taken care of by way of Dura Ace Di2 Satellite shifters mounted to the tops of the bars. Otherwise, the build of the bike is with fairly stock components. For more on the build of the bike, check out Curious how you go about making a road bike capable of the incredible stunts pulled in Road Bike Party 2? Global Cycling Network just posted the ‘Making of’ video where Martyn’s mechanic builds up a stock Colnago C59 disc with just a few custom touches to make it trials worthy.Haven’t seen Road Bike Party 2 yet? Where have you been!? Check it out, plus images of the C59 after the break.last_img read more

Spurs look tough as ever as Jazz head to San Antonio

first_img Related SAN ANTONIO — So you’re thinking, this is the year the San Antonio Spurs finally drop a level and join the NBA pack after 15-time All-Star Tim Duncan finally retired after 19 seasons and Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have become another year older.Think again.The Spurs might just be the most impressive team in the NBA so far this year, with a 4-0 record and three victories on the road, including that 29-point opening-night thumping of the mighty Golden State Warriors.That’s what the Utah Jazz are up against Tuesday night at the AT&T Center where the two teams meet at 6:30 p.m. MT.The Jazz are off to a slow start, coming off an 88-75 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday night in California, which dropped their season record to 1-2. The Jazz, who are playing without their leading scorer of the past three years, Gordon Hayward, have struggled offensivelyThe Jazz are averaging just 91.7 points per game on 43.5 percent from the field and only 30.9 percent from 3-point range.George Hill has been the one bright spot with a 20-points-per-game average on 49-percent shooting. Joe Johnson (15.7 ppg) and Rodney Hood (15.3 ppg) both had strong openers but had off-nights against the Clippers.As for the Spurs, Kawhi Leonard, who has been the NBA defensive player of the year the past two years, has broken out offensively this season, averaging 28.0 points per game on 50 percent shooting from the field and 95 percent from the free throw line.Longtime Los Angeles Laker Pau Gasol has joined the team this year and starting at forward and is averaging 9.5 points and 7.3 reboundsKyle Anderson, a third-year year player out of UCLA, has been the starting two-guard this year, but only averaging 3.8 points and 5.0 rebounds per game.The Spurs are making 9.5 3-pointers a game and shooting 45.2 percent from 3-point range, led by reserve guard Patty Mills, who is shooting 59.1 percent on 13 of 22.Coach Gregg Popovich is already resting players for the long grind ahead as Parker and Ginobili sat out the third game of the season, Saturday night against New Orleans, while LaMarcus Aldridge, sat out Sunday’s win over Miami, partly because of knee soreness, but “we thought we would sit him because it was a back-to-back and his fourth game in six days” said Popovich.JAZZ NOTES: The Jazz got Derrick Favors back Friday after he sat for most of the preseason with a knee issue and after playing 20 minutes Friday, played 23 Sunday against the Clippers . . . The Spurs and Jazz will meet again Friday night in Salt Lake at Vivint Arena . . . In between, the Jazz will play Dallas at home Wednesday night, while the Spurs will be off for two days in between . . . The Jazz and Spurs play later in the season, but not for more than five months, with games April 2 in San Antonio and April 12 in Salt Lake.

first_imgSam Burford registered his fourth win of the season in goal for Nelson — the second in as many nights.The game was played in Sparwood due to the ongoing investigation of an ammonia leak last month at the Fernie Memorial Arena.A post on the City of Fernie Facebook page said RCMP are currently conducting their on-scene investigation at the Arena.“While this is underway, RCMP have full control of the Arena and the City of Fernie and other agencies do not have any access to the facility,” the post said.“Once the RCMP have concluded their on-scene investigation, WorksafeBC will take control of the Arena to conduct their investigation.”Nelson’s win, combined with a Beaver Valley 4-2 loss to Kimberley Saturday in the East Kootenay, increases Nelson’s Murdoch Division lead to nine points.The Leafs, 18-3-1-0-1, complete a six-game road trip away Friday in Grand Forks against the Border Bruins.Nelson, the top team in the KIJHL, returns to the NDCC Arena Saturday to host Castlegar Rebels at 7 p.m. Paced by team captain Sawyer Hunt, the Nelson Leafs ran its Kootenay International Junior Hockey League unbeaten streak to six games Saturday night in Sparwood.Hunt, who currently leads the Leafs in scoring with 25 points, registered three points to lead Nelson to a 6-3 victory over Fernie Ghostriders.Jack Karran, with a pair, Logan Wullum, Michael Bladon, David Sanchez and Jackson Zimmermann scored for Nelson as the visitors held period leads of 3-1 and 5-2.Greg Susinski, Brendan Nemes and Jace Woodley replied for the Riders.last_img read more

Galway Tribesmen March On To The Republic Of Ireland League Final

first_imgGalway Tribesmen 28 Dublin City Exiles 20 The Galway Tribesmen met the Dublin City Exiles at the Claddagh last Saturday in the Rugby League Republic of Ireland semi-final. The Tribesmen kicked off and had the Exiles squeezed inside their own danger zone almost immediately as the visitors tried to work the ball upfield. Tough tackling from the Galway men resulted in a handover of possession and sustained pressure near the Exiles line gave big prop forward Enda Stanford an early try which seems to have become almost customary over the last few games. With the conversion added by Peter O’Neill, the score was 6-0 to the Tribesmen.From the kick restart the Tribesmen attempted to build on the good start but a handling error gave the Exiles possession that showed glimpses of what they were capable as they gained valuable field position. However, a knock on by the Exiles offered the Tribesmen a chance to capitalize, which they did with a fine break down the right-hand wing. The move was finished off by Eddie Weaver who crossed the line for 4 points. With the conversion added by O’Neill, the Tribesmen were 12-0 to the good after 10 minutes.The early scores seemed to galvanise the Exiles and with memories of their last trip to Galway only a month ago, when they experienced a 52-0 drubbing they were determined to make their mark. Some clever interplay between the half backs gained them their first score after 15 minutes; with the conversion added the score was now 12-6. The next period of play saw a succession of handling errors by both teams as they both tried to gain ascendancy. The visitors maintained their fine spell and doubled their score on the 30-minute mark which put the scores level. When a penalty was awarded in front of the Tribesmen posts due to a high tackle, the Exiles didn’t hesitate in choosing to kick for goal. The 2 points from the kick put the visitors in front for the first time after 37 minutes with the scores 12-14. As the half drew to a close, and with the ball back in inside the Exiles half, the Tribesmen managed to add to their score through Peter O’Neill, and after converting his own try the half finished 18-14 to the Tribesmen.The Exiles began the 2nd half strongly and a great attack down the right wing came to nothing as the ball was eventually thrown into touch. The tribesmen made the most of this error and demonstrated great enterprising play to allow Weaver in for his 2nd try on the 45th minute mark and with the conversion missed the scores were now at 22-14. As the half progressed, both teams gave everything to add to their respective scores. Brian McDonagh and Nick Clark were tireless in their efforts in trying to gain momentum for the Galway men but tenacious defence from the Dubliners thwarted every attempt. Good work from the Exiles allowed them to exert pressure on the Galway line and with just 15 minutes left on the clock they were back within 2 points with a cleverly worked try and the conversion added. The tension was palpable in the closing stages with practically nothing between the teams and a place in the ROI final next Saturday at stake. However, the Galway nerves were settled when Aaron Byrne crashed over the line from close range to register 4 points. O’Neill added the conversion which put the scores at 28-20 to the Tribesmen and this how the game ended. The Tribesmen now move on to the Republic of Ireland final in Ashbourne Rugby Club next Saturday, 29th August, where they will face the Athboy Longhorns in a repeat of last year’s final. Kick-off is at 2pm.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
