The first event I attended in Colombia was a big redbull sponsored dirt contest in Tuluá, Colombia.
This is where I got my first impression of the dirt riders in Colombia and what was to come for the following events. Even though I was the new guy in town, and a gringo, I felt at home right away. This contest had about 40-50 riders competing and 100′s of spectators cheering on everything from a moto whip to a 360 double whip. Definite a great time.
From the contest, I hopped back in with Alejandro Caro and Adela to head back to Alejandro’s farm about an hour away.
The ride to and from the farm is beautiful…with mountains, valleys, rivers and lush greens everywhere. But my favorite is the farm itself!
It sits on a nice hillside covered in coffee, plantains, bananas, fresh greens and much more, with the house and storages sat at the bottom of the hill.
With staying at the farm also came fresh picked meals prepared by Adela.
I will say this over and ever:
Colombia is amazing and beautiful and full of great people!
Thank you again Alejandro Caro, Adela and Alejandro’s family!
You all contributed to one of the best trips I’ve been on

Going into this trip to Colombia, I really had no idea what to think…
But When I arrived at the aero puerto, I instantly knew I was gonna love it!
The legendary Alejandro Caro and his lady Adela took me in and made me feel right at home on his farm, (which is absolutely gorgeous) but I’ll get to that in the next update…
Here are photos from one of the many events I attended in Colombia.
This one took place in Buga, Colombia on an amazing set of trails.
On the night before the jam, Alejandro, Rob dolecki and myself went live on the radio to promote the jam as well.
On jam day, there were 100′s of people riding as well as 100′s more watching the craziness go down. All the locals are so good and killed it all day, doing pretty much every big trick I’ve ever seen! It was definitely entertaining to view!
Amongst the organized chaos, Alejandro put together some pretty fun contest type things such as: best trick, best moto whip, next pro, best combo and more….
I was lucky enough to take the win in the best moto whip and best combo!
During the entire day, I met, rode with and hung out with so many awesome people, generous and welcoming people.
Thank you all for such a great day and especially thanks to Alejandro Caro, Adela, Rob dolecki and profile racing!
More Colombia updates coming soon!
