Ghost Town Skateboarding – Ordos;
It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.
Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.

Nicolas Lau is the overall winner of the Trans Provence and the drama of the race continued
Trans Provence came to a close on Sunday and the winner was Nicolas Lau. Over the trails, through the rain, thunder and lightning and to the beach at Monaco the last day of the Trans Provence was an eventful one.
One rider, Sven Martin, broke his arm and had to be airlifted to hospital and despite this his wife Anka Martin finished the day.
There were two severe storms, which saw riders and mountain staff dodging lightning and the trails becoming even more perilous. Following the second storm there was a three-bike pile up but thankfully no more serious injuries.
So the final top three for the men’s race was Nicolas Lau in first, Nicolas Vouilloz in second and last year’s winner Jérôme Clementz came in third.
The women’s race was won by Anne-Caroline Chausson with Anka Martin in second and Rosara Joseph in third.
So a dramatic week at the Trans Provence, what excitements will next years race hold?
