Dear Pedro: a letter to the Dear Wade contest winner

Satindar Dhillon went to Costa Rica and he's pissed. Well, kind of. Read his take on the situation on

Wade "Chimonez" Simmons and Dear Wade contest winner Pedro Brjal from Portugal in Costa a few weeks ago.

What downhilling in Costa Rica with Big Mountain can make you do...

We wrapped up our annual back to back 10-day Pura Vida DH trips in Costa Rica recently. Thanks to Paulo and Nene in CR and our man Wade Simmons, the trips were a resounding success. As it turned out, Lon couldn't hold back while checking out the country's highest volcano, Volcan Irazu. Was it the altitude? Was it a bad batch of tequila from the night before? Or was it that the riding was unreal?

We've got our 2010 dates posted and spots are already filling up. Grab the big rig and come down for some good times in the tropics. 2010 Costa Rica Pura Vida DH dates here.
