Vexum Strikes Again

Untitled-2

They’re on our radar again.

The snowboard-inspired clothing line, owned and operated by two local 15-year-old shredders, is looking for the next big riders to sponsor.

“With the help of the ‘Shred for Drake’ shirts, Vexum has really taken off, and we think it’s time to build a street team of both snowboarders and skiers,” Jacob Roscoe, Vexum owner said.

To be eligible, teams of four riders (skiers or boarders) should create a short film to be entered by noon on Feb. 3. The films will then be premiered at Sun Valley Sports, 6-9 p.m. Feb.7.

The contestants of the winning video will receive:

  • 425693_539583752738136_678567523_n1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum hoodie/T-shirt per member.
  • $50 Sun Valley bucks

Second place will receive:

  • 1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum T-shirt per member
  • $25 Sun Valley bucks

Third place will receive:

  • 1 case of Redbull
  • 1 Vexum T-shirt for each member
  • $10 Sun Valley bucks

As an added bonus, Vexum will choose one rider from both the first and second place videos to be sponsored by the clothing line.

“We are really excited to see the local talent,” Roscoe said. “We won’t promise anything, but if we are really impressed by the videos, then we may sponsor more than two riders.”

Roscoe said they are looking for originality and solid bangers when choosing winning videos.

The price to enter the video contest is $25 per team. To enter, visit the Vexum blog.

Vexum, previously known as Lumen, is owned and operated by Jacob Roscoe and David Ross. The 15-year-old boys started the company on a whim after a creative study hall. The company, now on its second line, creates T-shirts and sweatshirts with extreme sport enthusiasts in mind.

SNAP ON OUTLAW RACE A SUCCESS

No sponsors. No prizes. No giveaways. Just good old fashioned fun on a piece of wood with wheels.

The Janoviak boys took us back to our roots with the Snap On outlaw race, Saturday night, and damn was it a great time! The race itself was fun, sure, but as always it’s the atmosphere that makes an event.

The atmosphere, created by what I like to call the “extras,” was relaxed and fun. Skaters enjoyed the technical course and after the winners were declared, we all continued mobbing, butt boarding, and having a good old time with our friends.

Racers

Racers paid a well worth it $5 to participate; Winner takes all. Podium Photo

Podium was as follows:

1. Jake Janoviak, SVS and ODS rider

2. Russell Janoviak, SVS and ODS rider

3. Chris Jelinek

Oh yeah, No podiums either. I don’t even remember this photo being taken because no one made a fuss about winning.

the chicksOkay this is where I get really excited:

The chicks were super well represented at Snap On! Out of 20 racers, 4 were girls. Even better, one of those chicks, Jenny Demarco (aka Dr. D or Jen Hen), took 5th place overall! That is a huge accomplishment when you look at the advantages guys have in both body mass and push capacity.

After the race, the girls took over the course for two runs. Results were as followed:

Race 1:

Race 2:

So, in conclusion, Snap On reminded us we just want to have a good time.

HILLS AND CHILLS WITH THE LANDYACHTZ TEAM

Groms, guys and gals all came out yesterday to ride with the Landyachtz riders, Billy Bones, Justen Ortiz, Dillon Stephens, Nick Breton and Guff McGufferson. After an informal meet and greet and pizza eat at Sun Valley Sports, we took the boys out to some of our best downhill spots! With a group of 30+ people, the Landyachtz riders killed it on some 45+ hills before hitting up the local skate park and future spot of the IGSA NorAm Rubber City Gravity Games downhill race. Lastly, we ended the day at a sick free ride spot in the heart of Akron. Ortiz, Stephens and some locals threw out some gnar slides before we showed the guys around AK Rowdy.

As awesome as it was to see the guys skate, my favorite part of the day was just chilling with the riders. Once the crowd dwindled to just a hand full, we got to really know the guys. They’re all super down-to-earth and actually took the time to get to know us, which I thought was really cool. We had some good laughs and real conversations with them before they were on the road again.

So, for those of you who are waiting for the Landyachtz riders to stop in your town, here’s some tips on how to make your time with them as great as ours was:

1. Dillon Stephens birthday is Monday, so make sure to show him a good time!

2. Bring a pocket knife. (Only if your 18+ and can be responsible. I do not condone reckless knife behavior.)

3. Don’t overload the boys with skate. Make sure to show them around your town and have some fun because this is where you will get the chance to really know the guys.

4. Take them to get Moosehead.

Hope you all have as great of a time with the Landyachtz riders as we did! Here’s some photos/videos from our day with Ortiz, Stephens, Bones, Breton and Guff. (I will add more media as I gather it):
