We headed over to Winterberg Dirtmasters this past weekend to show our new product and catch up with long term partners Cosmic Sports. Cosmic had all their brands on display at the top of the event, near the 4X and downhill, and with a spectacular view of the bikepark and slopestyle course. The festival is huge with around 50,000 people visiting to watch the various events and there was a constant buzz around our small tent, which we fitted into the back of the van along with 12 bikes and 5 people! Space was tight!
With the van packed we just needed to get some people in…
The stand acted as our headquarters for the weekend, as well as making for a great viewing platform over the Bergline
Ray and Clint spent the weekend riding the bikepark and numerous lifted trails dotted around the place. Ray competed in the SKS slopestyle in some nasty mountain-fog conditions and managed to finish up in 3rd place in front of a wild crowd.

Brendan and Sam in the Whip off contest. Things got out of hand!
Amongst other events the big highlight ended with the Bergline contest. After Rays 3rd place finish he was listed as a back up rider if one of the invited riders couldnt make the main event, this didn’t come about however and he had to sit out and watch the finals on the packed course
The view from the giant walkway next to the DMR tent was insane!
Best trick went wild just one day before the finals, A few riders turned heads with the tricks they have in their arsenal. 2 Cashrolls in one contest?!
The finals were really eye opening. The level of riding is truly ridiculous. Stand out riders for us at DMR were Sam Pilgrim with his flat drop backflip, Martin Soederstrom with his crazy tech runs, Brett Rheeder with his Opposite 3 on the flat drop and Anton Thelander for his flawless smooth runs. Check out the highlight video below:

Overall a great weekend which ended up holding out, weather wise, for when it really mattered. Thanks to Cosmic sports for all their help and Barbecues. Look forward to next year!
We’ll get together a go pro edit of the event real soon, stay tuned!
