Richmond – Day #2
I met up with Neal Hise for a morning session on Friday. A real early morning session actually. After we got some coffee at the Lamplighter, we hit up a manual/stair set at a war monument. Seems like there are monuments everywhere in Richmond. Got kicked out by a lawn maintenance man and headed to a slab spot that was pretty dialed. Not sure how those cement nipples are made but they seem to be a staple obstacle at every cement park these days.
After baking in the sun, Neal headed to work, and I met up with Dre Tylee, Dave Zovko, and Eric Holladay. Eric was our tour guide for the afternoon. We were able to get a cache of spots in before the monsoon. We actually got caught at about 3:30 in a torrential down pour. As we were getting soaked, I couldn’t stop laughing at Holladay’s antics. If you know him, you know what I mean. Amazing dude, amazing rider as well.
We’re off to Ed’s games, below is what we captured for the day. Thanks again to dillon and Shane Leeper for their hospitality.
