The Team MBUK/Santa Cruz pilgrimage to the holy home of Santa Cruz is well under way.

So far, we've had the great privilege of visiting Santa Cruz bikes - full of loads of cool top secret machines, machining equipment, and new bike projects. More on that soon. Watch this space...

Santa Cruz even have a kick-ass dog at the factory; an Alaskan Malamute - my favourite!

We had a totally sick tour of the Santa Cruz factory guided by none other than Santa Cruz main man Rob Roskopp. The amount of cool stuff in there was ridiculous!

We've been hanging out with Thomas Vanderham, Jamie Goldman, Cam McCaul, Gareth Dyer and Greg Watts, and have been backflipping into Cam McCauls backyard swimming pool. It was the illest thing you've ever seen. The icing on the cake though, was seeing Neil 'Donny' Donoghue try a flip on dirt for the first time and land it like he'd been doing them for years. Thomas Vanderham couldn't believe it - he looked gutted!

Anyhow, back to the trip for me now.
