Darcy's Toronto Jam Trip2013-03-14
Toronto Jam went down recently, and Darcy made it out for the festivities this year. Darcy ended up hurting him self before the contest, but powered through and ended up coming 10th in Pro. Check out what Darcy had to say about the Jam, and check some pics from him shreddin Joyride 150, and the contest.
I spent a few days in Toronto for the Toronto BMX Jam that went down recently. I flue into a dump of snow and cold weather so no outside riding, first day I put together my bike and head to Joyride. The usual routine at Joyride is gear up and hit the pump track for a heart pumping warm up, get your stretch on and then shred the vast amounts of obstacles the park has. After a few hours boostin boxes in the box jump line and bone sawing my pegs in the street course I decided to hit the foam pit for some kung foolery and bent my ankle sideways... The night was finished up with a bag full of snow wrapped around my leg for a couple hours. I didn't want to waste the weekend so I bought an ankle brace to limit the movement of my foot, took some pain meds, and rode my ass off the next day. Game day came around and my ankle was swollen real bad from riding, but I pushed through practise and my run, and made finals. After the jam was ending everyone headed to Joyride to watch Fox riders throw down and throw some swag out to everyone. Sunday was Finals, and everyone was eager to get practise in before their run, I decide to flip a hip but instead I did a flair to my face, luckily my helmet took most of the impact... My run came around and I threw down some no handers, super-whips, flips, flairs, double whips, and a 360 double whip. After every thing was said and done I took home 10th place. Thanks 1664BMX, Encore Bikes, Vans Shoes, System Bikes, and BMX Gallery for all the support this year at the Toronto BMX Jam 2013. - Darcy Peters

Schubert & Darcy San Diego Wrap Up2013-03-05
3 weeks in San Diego went by faster then you can say enchiladas. Its hard to recall everything that happened over our stay, so I will just express the highlights the best I can. Ocean beach skatepark is where most every morning began, a 10min ride from the hotel it's safe to say it had a local vibe by the time we left. Most OB sessions we ran into OAB(the one armed bandit). We never had any encounters with said skater bandit, however I did see him launch his board into a bikers bike mid jump... Other then OAB all the locals were awesome and slashed the park as slayer would. Next to OB, we spent a fair bit of time at the YMCA park in Clairemont, which is well, AMAZING. Many good sessions were had there, along with ramp burn and Darcy being blessed by an angel cheating death for an entire session... Chula Vista was full of small plazas which we made a day of, then nearly ended up in Mexico without passports... On Saturday we met up with Gary Young for tacos and then rode Area 43, an amazing backyard ramp(thanks Dave!). All in all we ate taco's nearly everyday, avoided the cop killer that was beside our hotel at one point, experienced SD and its sights with some new friends, hoped many of fence to ride bikes, enjoyed a Cali version of a Stampede..., crashed a birthday party(sarry), successfully shared a room of 4 people for a month without a problem and rode our bikes every single day all day for 22 days straight and couldn't have asked for anything more. I left my heart in San Diego... wait that's not right... Thanks again to everyone we met along the way, showed us a good time, or made fun of me for saying pardon. As Darcy would say #Living
