2005 IGSA World Cup Sweden

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

Venue: Bainbridge, Ohio, USA Date: October 15-17, 2004 The 2004 IGSA Ohio World Cup #2 was a pretty great event (compared to previous years), considering it had obtained the largest rider turnout in all disciplines. Team rider Abdil “Furlong” Mahdzan had only one goal in mind, and that was to improve his qualifying time from the King of the Hill event held earlier on the same hill in April 2004. He achieved just that, clocking 1 minute 44.881 seconds, beating his previous time of 1 minute 48.494 seconds. Of course, the brand new pavement helped him to improve his time, but … Continue reading

2004 Madison County Gravity Festival

mcgf

Venue: Munnsville, New York, USA Date: July 31 – August 1, 2004 One of the biggest events Furlong has traveled to since Red Bull Streets of San Francisco 2002, this race proved to be both fun and enjoyable, especially since GSI has worked hard to provide the racers with more value for their money. This was the first such event that Furlong is aware of that GSI actually did something different from what they have done in the past, and that was to allow as many practice runs (though limited to 12 riders) RIGHT AFTER each individual race heat, thereby … Continue reading
