Milwaukee in 3 days.

I headed up to Milwaukee over the weekend to handle some team/product business for both Profile and Madera. Although the meetings were surprisingly long (both were actually fun and really motivating), we were still able to fit in a trip to Sun Ringle/Hayes Brakes, a trip to Madera’s screen printer, a little meet up with Walter Pieringer (Ride UK), and in between it all, plenty of riding sessions. Thank to Mike Hinkens and Grant Castelluzzo for the hospitality, Jeff K. and Jeff Dowhen for some good sessions, and the many dudes from the Milwaukee crew that we met up to ride with. The scene in Milwaukee is too good! Amazing times. Here’s some photos from the weekend.

Here’s some giant, walk in CNC machine at Hayes. Thanks to Jon Wells for the tour!

Hayes makes braking systems for Harley Davidson. Here is their brake bleeding center.

We rode this amazingly tight barrier. No room to hop yet Jeff K. makes it happen directly into the blazing sun.

Grant C.. Step down whip after eating a giant pizza! Congrats to him on a 6th place finish for “The Hunt.”

School spot in Milwaukee…one of many amazing jibs!
