You surely know the Myck wheels (photo below), and what we got here is a funny (strange ?) story : The wheels you can see above are basically Myck wheels with a new label on it.
The Team Carat (Korea) who sell them just bought some Myck wheels, decided to put a design on them (the concept of the Myck wheels is to be sold ‘blank’, without any design) and sell them as their product.
Here is a photo of the Alchemy freestyle frames. Alchemy released a white model and a black model of the freestyle frames, this one seems to have a new ‘wing’ carved artwork. Any feedback about the frames for those who tested them ?
Kaya Turski, the female rollerblader and freestyle skiing champion sponsored by Salomon was seriously injured.
Female skiing phenom Kaya Turski was severely injured last Saturday night during the second annual ICER Air event in San Fransisco.
Upon landing a 540, Kaya veered off to the side of the landing, catching a ski on a wooden quazi-stair case that ran the length of the landing. She was sent tumbling down the steep wooden slope until coming to a stop at the bottom.
She was then taken to a near-by hospital for treatment. Last night (Monday), she underwent surgery to repair internal injuries. Details of the surgery are not being released to respect her privacy until more details are known about the extent of her injuries. source
I spoke with Kaya today and she is in good spirits and eager to get out of the hospital and back to her home in Montreal after completing surgery last week and overcoming some minor complications.
Doctors have told her that she’ll be back in action and 100% in two months. She’ll rest at her home with her parents until then while she finishes up school (a sort of “junior” college, called CEGEP in Quebec).
Kaya sustained serious internal injuries after crashing down the wooden stair case set up along the sides of the landing at Icer Air in San Francisco November 4th. She finished in 2nd place at the contest with her first run and crashed on her second.
Everyone at Freeskier wishes Kaya the fastest of recoveries. Keep your head up and your stick on the ice.
You can send Kaya cards, flowers, chocolates or love letters to the following address, and they will be delivered to her when she gets back to Montreal in the next couple of days :
