Welcome back to the Last times, been a bit of a break from the

on a few back still...
Aleksi Ritsilä is part of the new generation of pros coming 
through the ranks, along with the likes of Dez,Moto, Mates, 
and guys like that the international scene looks promising. 
Hailing from the same country as the boss, Martti Kuoppa, 
is something in the water in Finland?


Last time you rode outside: 
Maybe in October. The winter up here is pretty damn long...

Check it at least few times, every day. has became one of the most important web sites for me. Awesome job Effraim!!!

Last time you broke a bikepart: 

Lost count last year... broken frames, bars, forks, hubs... actually my back rim has several small cracks at the moment, guess that´s the last one.
