    Maybe he will have it out at fontana this weekend, he really is a cool guy, been chatting with him the last three races at some time or another either on practice day, or race day. Just layed back and there to have fun.

    Last race was funny, they added a $100 dollar bountyu to anyone who could beat him. Well elts just say CK is still reigning chamo this year at Fontana.....Not too suprizing, he is damn fast

    thats a nice bike, you guys should check out the new video clip on litter, he does a 360 and a really good scrub on his dh bike. insane. really hope he does well in 08.

    i remember in 01 when he was sponsored by sun rims he used to run 521s. then again everyone used to run 721/521s.

    i feel that the new style of disposable rims very wasteful.

    I can direct you back several posts to allow you to find the answer for yourself by reading this thread first then asking questions second. :twitch:

    it's gonna be a bit weird seeing CK in a different color than Intense Red.

    the blue is lookin mighty sexy IMO

    the white m3 was his worlds rig at that time... he was also running the green/yellow fox gear (that bubba was rockin for a while). regardless, that was only for a couple of races i belive. in general, i'm pretty sure he's been pretty much on a red intense since his Qranc/GT days (although some had sticker kits w/ some color)

    I know his kit has changed a couple of times... yellow/red fox gear, yellow/dk blue fox gear, etc.... but even there, the majority of his kits had mainly red (minuse the time w/ yellow/blue)

    anybody who knows what he does to rims knows that wheelset is for show. Kovarik couldn't get 1 run in on a gravel road before the rim would be in his pocket! :busted:

    So...he's gonna race in the UK and Europe, but not Canada right?
