Central Mass is going down again! This is the fourth year for the event and is expected to be better than ever.
The event features a downhill race and a slide jam as well as a bit of partying on the side! Each day will feature a full 8 hours of road closure which is more skating than most can handle.
Vicious Griptape team rider Cameron Frazier has been working in skate shops for almost as long as he’s been skating. If there’s a board and a grip brand out there, he’s gripped it and skated it. That’s part of the reason we’re so stoked Cameron chooses to Get Vicious – he knows what he’s talking about!
Team rider Tamara Prader has recently been working with Chixxs on Board to get more girls out riding in a less intimidating environment to build there skills and get them comfortable riding with more people.
One of the girls, Tanja, did a write up of the event. Check it out on the Chixxs on Board Blog.
The beaten path is often the one we ordinarily take, but Vicious Team Riders Levi Green and Wyatt Gibbs are far from ordinary. Out for an afternoon skate, Wyatt showed Levi a local shortcut between two runs and the guys decide to shred down some gnarly pavement and have a little janky pavement fun on the way home.
Patrick Switzer has taken another win at this year’s Maryhill Festival of Speed. This is Patrick’s third win at one of the world toughest races!

Patrick can mark down another win on the board after winning Kelowna Skylands 2013.
This is one of the most intense and complex courses in BC with some of the trickiest corners out there.
Check out the final from the last corner. Lots going on!

Our new Vicious shredder Chance Gaul has been tearing it up for years. He lives in one of the best areas for downhill in the world and it certainly shows.
Check out his newest video from our good friend Jeff Budro.
An amazing time was had by all. The rain held out all weekend for dry riding both days!
Congrats to both!
