  • T6 BRENT at Border BattleBrent and Ryan are the guys behind TWIN SIX, out of Minneapolis. You should follow TWINSIX and TWINSIX_BRENT on Twitter! The Border Battle was also unofficial TwinSix Day. Brent took time away from slaving over hot graphic designs and crossed the border to represent for Minnesota and throw down with the T6 crew. WISCO took home the trophy and T6 took home lots of love from many racers and spectators who came out in gear and to say hello. Here is Brent's first lap, edited down to a blazing 5 minutes. He also picked the music. Who knew the man behind the METAL KITS was into NIN?
    WORS GoPro HERO Cam: Andy at Alterra and Brent at Border BattleCamera maker GoPro has gifted Team WORS two of their GoPro HERO Wide-angle lens cameras. Footage from the cameras is online at the Team WORS vimeo.

    WORS Junior racer Andy Schirpke rode with one of the cameras at the Alterra Coffee Bean Classic, where he finished 2nd overall in a field of 25+ boys between the ages of 8 and 12. Andy races for Twin Six, and even dressed up like T6 teammate Jesse Lalonde for Halloween last year (see minute 6:20-ish).

    All of Andy's 27-min race was captured, and has been edited down to just five minutes hereVimeo. Thanks Andy!

    Brent and Ryan are the guys behind TWIN SIX out of Minneapolis. The Border Battle, race number eight in the 2009 Subaru-sponsored Wisconsin Off Road Series, was also unofficial "TwinSix day".

    Brent took time away from slaving over hot graphic designs to cross the border, represent for Minnesota, and throw down with the T6 crew. He also graciously agreed to ride with the GoPro camera (as long as we included his favorite NIN song on the soundtrack). Here, we edited Brent's first lap down to a blazing 5 minutes.

    WORS GoPro HERO Cam movie: Elite lap at AlterraCamera maker GoPro has gifted Team WORS two of their GoPro HERO Wide-angle lens cameras. Footage from the cameras is online at the Team WORS vimeo.

    Carlos Haeckel rode with one of the cameras during the Belgioioso Elite series race at the Alterra Coffee Bean Classic, where he finished 11th overall in a field of 40+ Pro and Cat 1 men. Appropriately, Carlos and his wife Sonia (she rode with the camera at Subaru Cup) ride for Team Alterra. A fan of dance-worthy music, Carlos contributed the soundtrack too.
