Roll out the red carpet, the holidays are here and my teammates and I were lucky enough to get invited to Santa Cruz Bicycles “Syndicate Shindig”. For those who don’t know, the Syndicate is Santa Cruz Bicycles factory racing world champion downhill team, thanks to the incredible talent of Greg Minnaar, Steve Peat, and Josh Bryceland who make up the most successful downhill racing team in bicycle history. With 4 world championship wins! So the party was a hit, with all you could drink champaign and beer and a plethora of amazing food. One of my favorites being the rack of lamb! This party celebrated a few different things. The new headquarters for Santa Cruz bicycles, the premier of Steve Peats movie “Won’t Back Down”, the unavailing of Greg Minnaar’s signature downhill bike (pretty sick I must say), and of course Christmas! Thanks again to Santa Cruz bicycles and my Santa Cruz/Fox racing team for inviting me to such an awesome party! I can’t wait for what the 2014 season has in store!
