This Sunday is Gonracin BMX’s 5th year anniversary jam. Tim (pictured on the flier) & Josh Clemens are a Father/Son duo that have BMX in their blood since it’s beginning roots and do everything they can through the shop to build up their community. We did a Ground Recon on them a few months ago that you might remember. This weekend is one of those events, so if you’re in the area stop by for riding, food, video premieres, and free Demolition prizes. Click the flyer for all the details…
One of the coolest things about having a fun ramp setup in the backyard of the 180 warehouse is the fact that some of the greatest BMX riders in the world often stop by to shred the ramps. View Gallery
The time has rolled around for Clayton Bikes in Concord, CA to hold their annual TGC AM Jam. If you’ve been to or seen footage of the previous years, then you already know this is gonna be a good time. They always come up with the best ramps, dirt jumps, pallet obstacles, etc. and everyone just sends themselves. If you’re anywhere in the area, you should make it out. And there will be plenty of opportunity to catch some free Demolition stuff. Click “more” to view the full flyer for all the details….
I was cruising through my hard drives recently and found this gem of our boy BIZ doing a sick downside whip at one of his many local spots. We originally shot this photo for our Spring Tee Flip Book the we put together last year. Check out the ID and then click on BIZ’s downside whip to save it as your new desktop wallpaper!
Akira Sakata, our Japanese rider, just opened up his own shop in Japan, Flourish BMX Shop. Head over to the Volume site to see more photos of his shop and read a quick Q&A with Akira about Flourish. Be sure to check out Flourish BMX Shop if you are ever near Sagamihara City!
After going through our finalists for our Pics for Hubs Contest, we finally got it locked down to 3. Our top 3 was @TeddyOSteen with an awesome looking sunset invert, @DanBMX with a cloudy turndown and our winner, @JeffwithGlasses. Jeff was one of the few out of 2,200 entries that had a really solid street picture that was something we could see using ourselves for our blog and etc. We looked at the trick and photo quality to determine if they made the cut and if we would use them somewhere. Thanks again to everyone that entered! Stay tuned, we have another contest lined up very soon.
Our main man on vert, Coco Zurita has up a really cool interview on the Red Bull site. He talks everything vert, cars and contests. Jeremy Pavia shot some sick shots you definitely wanna check out too. Check it out HERE.
Holy shit this new edit of Connor is amazing! Too many good things to recount and all of it is as creative as it gets! Connor and Miles Rogoish put this edit together to promote signature bar with Premium and these two really outdid themselves this time! Super fun to watch and gets you stoked to ride so watch it now and go shred your Saturday!
Doyle recently put up an invert pic of him and Enns doing inverts at the Parkgate park in Vancouver on his Instagram and I couldn’t resist but to put both up on the blog. Same hip, same trick, similar style, just 14 years apart and Enns’ deck is a little bit more stacked with legendary pros. Click image to go BIG.
It’s always tough judging any sort of contest, especially when you have over a 2,200 entries! I never would have thought we’d have so many amazing entries, this makes my job a lil’ tough. Last night, we picked our top 30 and got it down to our top 15 for this blog post. These top 15 all were amazing photos themselves as well as the riding. We were looking for a very crisp photo that is well lit, good composition and a really good or unique trick. We always say, “What makes a good photo isn’t always with the riding itself, it’s also with the photography and the man behind the lens.”
We’ll get it down to our number one by the weekend. Again, we can’t thank everyone enough for entering their pics and tagging #picsforhubs on their Instagram. We had a ton of amazing pics of tricks (amazing tricks!) but some of the quality of the photos themselves hurt them to move forward. Why do I sound like a judge on American Idol?! Please don’t get bummed if you didn’t see your entry, we’ll have another contest very soon! Click the pic above to go to see our top 15.
