Martin Siegrist in Malaysia

skate malaysia (3)

Martin Siegrist, the 2004 IGSA Downhill Skateboard World Champion, was in Malaysia to help out a Swiss friend with an indoor climbing gym project. As such, he took the opportunity to ride various roads while he was in the country. Some of the places that Martin had hit up included Bukit Tinggi, Fraser Hill to KKB, Changkat Tunku, and even Ukay Perdana which I had even hit up back in 2002 for a TV shoot. The following photos and text are taken with permission from Martin himself at his website. This flower shaped fountain was empty, no water… Luckily I … Continue reading

2005 Madison County Gravity Festival

6

Venue: Munnsville, New York, USA Date: July 30-31, 2005 This race is actually my last race in the United States before going back to Malaysia after I graduate. As such, I had to make it a point to attend as I had really enjoyed myself there last year. This year there were a lot more racers in all racing categories. I raced in both pro street luge and pro buttboard, just like last year. The event this year improved a lot, since we were able to camp at a certain spot on the hill. Not only that, but lunch was … Continue reading

Sweden_banner

Venue: Åre, Sweden Date: June 27 – July 1, 2005 This event was one such event that Abdil “Furlong” Mahdzan was not even sure he could make. Earlier this year, he had already made up his mind to attend at least one event in Europe before he graduates and goes back to Malaysia to work for his sponsor Petronas. This would give him an opportunity to meet up with teammate William Robyn from France. Both of them had initially planned to go to Hot Heels in Austria (the IGSA World Championship) together, but after getting word that the event was … Continue reading

Barrett_RR_1

Venue: Barrett Junction, California, USA Date: June 3-5, 2005 Abdil “Furlong” Mahdzan had hooked up with Justin Tolman of Team Toxic Brothers from San Diego, California for this event. Justin had agreed to pick up Furlong at the San Diego International Airport on Thursday night and they headed off to the hill to check the hill out. Bob Ozman, Art, and Anthony were still at the hill setting up the posts and fencing along the course. After giving them a hand, Justin and Furlong proceeded to the bottom of the hill where Marcus was waiting. They then followed Marcus and … Continue reading

Barrett2

The first World Cup event in the IGSA season calendar for 2005 will be held at Barrett Junction in San Diego, California, USA from June 3-5, 2005.

It would also be his first time riding and racing in California after 3 years (the last times were spent riding at Dinosaur Point, Templin Highway, and Red Bull Streets … Continue reading
