The LXM PRO TOur has been a whirlwind of change and evolution so far, and some people, especially back East, seem to be a little confused as to a number of the details, and even the overall story. To remedy this, the LXM, in conjunction with Adrenaline (an LXM and LAS sponsor), has put together an episodic series of videos which will detail the Tour, and give viewers an in-depth look at what is going on. To get even more in-depth, we sat down with LXM PRO and Adrenaline All-Star, Xander Ritz, and peppered him with questions about the Tour and the video series.

Mike Sawyer tore it up at Loyola’s alumni game this weekend, and when he wasn’t scoring goals, he was terrifying goalies, and sometimes breaking their helmets. One of Loyola’s goalies took a Sawyer shot off the dome, and the shot actually cracked the shell of the helmet. Now THAT is some SERIOUS power!
