    This past weekend Diablo Freeride Park Gravity Team rider Jason Memmelaar claimed 2nd place at the Winter Series #4 Pro DH event in Southern California.

    Memmelaar, a local and Diablo Gravity Team pro rider, claimed the 2nd fastest time of the day within a stacked field of nearly 300 competitors. Notable riders such as Brendan Fairclough, Cody Warren and David Klaassenvanoorschot, among many others, were in attendance battling for top honors with only ChainReaction rider Chris Kovarik besting Memmelaar's 2nd place finish.

    This past winter, Memmelaar, has taken advantage of the temperate climate of Southern California racing in the SouthRidge series and training in preparation for the upcoming season.


    Congratulations Jason! East Coast pride!

    Don't laugh, proprietary methods work...



    But seriously, looks like Diablo's got an insanely stacked team this year. Other than Sasha, there's some serious talent on that squad... ;)

    no doubt you guys are some serious talent, but the real question is which one of you looks like Rocky???



    He's not human. He's like a piece of iron.

    As far as Rocky goes, Sasha's got Rocky's hair, but his spindly body is a far cry from "a piece of iron." ;)
