Joey Bradford Goes Carbon.

April 12th, 2011


After being dropped from the GT program at the end of last season, and an injury at the ABA Grands, Joey has been MIA for a bit healing up and getting back to full health. There’s no word yet as to what team he’ll be riding for in 2011, but in this photo seen on his facebook page, it is pretty obvious that he’s changing things up in a big way and making the switch to a Prophecy carbon frame…

March 7th, 2011

Gavin Lubbe Down in Desoto. *UPDATED*

March 5th, 2011


It’s pretty creepy that with the way things are now, I will have this post up before Gavin is at the hospital. This photo was seen on his facebook not to long after watching him get wheeled off the track on a stretcher on Go211. I’ll steal his quote from facebook regarding his suspected injuries too “Can’t remember 2 much I’ll be fine. On the way to get xrays now.”
Lubbe got tangled up with thoffonline.com going into the first turn. It’s been a rough season for South Africa, let’s hope Gavin is just bruised and the Xrays come back clear.

UPDATE:
Straight from the horses Fabebook, “X-rays back, no fracture thank God! Just bruised badly! Thanks everyone 4 the wishes”
