Kurt Sorge scores 5th at Nissan Qashqai Challenge

Okay this shot was from Kurt in Kamloops weeks back it is hard to find any good coverage of the Nissan events at the moment but Kurt emailed us pumped on qualifying 5Th in such a rad event.
Dirt Magazine has posted some good coverage quoted as saying...

"Some of the other highlights of the day were Adam Hauck’s 720, Kurt Sorge’s superman to pendulum air, Alex Reveles’s Indian airs, and Tyler McCaul’s no footed can can x-ups."

"I am in Milan at the moment and just finished the first event of the Nissan Qashqai Series and I placed 5Th." "I will be on my way to Madrid, Munich, and London for the next 3 events of the series, so I will be back around the end of May. Alright thanks again, talk to you later.


Before Kurt took off for Europe we built him a rad set of of our Xray pedals for the tour...

I opened them up and put a slight dab of white grease inside the bushing to make the pedal rotation super slow for the big tricks Kurt likes to throw down, guaranteeing the pedals to be where he wants them on the landings.

Top 5 results:
2 Mischa Breitenstein KONA EUROPE SUI
4 Darren Pokoj FELT AUS

We are pretty stoked to have Both Sorge and Lenosky of the Giant Team on our pedals could not have asked for better guys to deal with.

Lenosky set up the Sram event at Sea otter and the event looks wicked and it seems everyone who raced wants to see the format at other events in the future. Sadly Jeff was stuck in Starbucks lineup and lost some time running back to his bike and Kyle Strait ended up rightfully stealing the win this time.
