Working at Woodward seems like a dream. Lloyd Ramsay met up with Shawn Dorton and had a talk about what it's like to work at ramp heaven.
How many years have you been working at Woodward for? I started working for Woodward in '95...the summer I turned 18 and was old enough. I came out to Woodward West in '03. Is it true that your green helmet is older than most of the campers? Absolutely. A friend of mine brought it out to me while I was a camper at Woodward in '93. I've used it ever since...and have replaced the padding about 6 times. I actually have one original pad and one original rivet in it.
Hot babes on bikes doing even hotter tricks! No that’s not the tagline for the latest Biker-Babe B-movie. It’s a bold announcement of great things to come. The creative Canadian BMX stunt rider, Angie “sKwirl” McEwen and Extreme Sports Stunt Team Owner/rider, Brent Sprute have joined forces to put together an amazing Extreme Sports Stunt Tour like no other! “sKwirl blew me away with her ideas and vision for a girls tour that would be empowering, educational and a lot of fun.” Said Sprute. The tour will take place over six weeks starting in September and running through mid October. The venues that will host the tour will be as varied and colorful as the riders that will be on the tour. Malls, Bike shops, skate parks and other hotspots will all be packed when the tour rolls through the U.S. and Canada later this year.
Encouraging a positive vibe among young women via unity, community and harmony flow strong as themes of this tour.

Ryan Nuquist actually rode with a bad knee for half the season last year. Instead of going in for surgery straight away he toughed it out and rode better than most people in top shape. As soon as the big contests were over Ryan had the surgery done and recovered during the winter months. He is now back on the bike and has the Unit as a private riding facility.
