DC/TLD Ride Day
Last year, DC and Troy Lee Designs teamed up to do a limited run of gear for their riders only. This time around, the rider inspired gear will be available to the public.
Maddo was on hand to hang, ride, and talk about his new gear. He was pumped.
Robbie Maddison's personally inspired gear design.
Maddo may spend a lot of time on the ramps, but he can still move in the dirt as well.
Check out the kill switch placement on Maddo's KX450F. The last thing you'd want would be to accidentally shut off the bike in mid-air while doing a backflip.
Logan Darien did the design work for Maddo's machine, and much of Robbie's gear was inspired by the very same bike.
What's the point of coming out to a perfectly groomed track if you're not going to ride it as well? DC's Nate Hawley (middle) was sure to bring out his KTM for some hot laps.
Troy Lee and MC have been friends since Jeremy's early pro career and have been working together ever since.
Jeremy McGrath's gear design was inspired by his TLD replica helmet.
TLD painted every single one of The King's iconic lids. He may not race anymore, but Jeremy will always be "Showtime." Jeremy is also happy to report that his wife, Kim, is doing well after her bone marrow transplant and is regaining her health.
With the track in tip top shape, it was time to throw down some laps.
Troy Lee was also on hand. Not only is Troy still personally involved with every project the TLD works on, he still shreds on a bike as well.
Troy knows a good thing when he sees it. The chance to work with four of MX's top athletes: that's a no-brainer.
The conditions could not have been better out at Pala Raceway.
DC shoes and Troy Lee Designs have been working together for a couple of years to help their various shared athletes. In the past, all of those projects have been reserved for a select few. Now the two companies have finally made some of those cool collaborations available to the public, beginning with the Robbie Maddison and Jeremy McGrath inspired riding gear. To get things started right, DC and TLD hosted a ride day out at Pala Raceway for a proper introduction.
