The man, the myth, the legend, Drew Hoss sits down with RideBMX to talk about his defining DVD section in the upcoming Volume Bikes DVD project, The Finer Things. Drew is all about talking his riding to new places and in new directions so the fact that he is saying this DVD part is his ” Defining Part” as a rider is really saying something. Find out what else he’s got to say about The Finer Things by hitting this here link.

Jason Enns recovery update:
“Yo dudes, Thought I’d shoot over this pic that Paul Luna shot awhile back while me and Biz were filming for our edit. I’m just shy of 6 weeks post surgery on my ruptured patella. Surgery went well and the recovery is going really good. I started therapy last week and the doc says I’m way ahead of schedule. I’ve got a good range of motion back and working on my strength now as well. I should be back to walking normal without a brace in another week or two. If all stays on course I should be back pedaling in a few weeks and fully back at it by late June.” -Jason Enns
Been a while since I’ve checked in. I’ve been having a pretty awesome spring; just riding a lot, dialing in the trails for summer and most recently went to Brazil for the X-Games. I was an alternate for dirt at X, but I went to Brazil anyways to ride and check the sites as I’ve never been to South America before. Dennis broke his wrist in park which put me in the finals for dirt. It was bittersweet riding in place of Dennis, but I was happy to be a part of the event. I’m back home now and heading back to the trails to do some more digging… I wonder how many of the other X-Games dirt competitors can say that?”
Kevin Paraza just recently sent over this rad pic of him doing a huge superman seatgrab from his big win at Simple Sessions. So stoked for him! Photo by Wolis
“Just saying whatsup and sending you some Photos from Simple Session that I have. I still cant believe I would ever get top 3, never the less win!! Haha, just got me super hyped and motivated! The new wheels felt so dialed and my bike just felt super good!”- Kevin
Steven Mack is one of those riders we always see on Instagram and hear about through his local shop, and our friend, James at King’s Ride Shop. Steven is always riding and always having fun. It’s hard not to be stoked on his riding, so we recently started hooking up Steven through King’s. In true Steven Mack fashion, he immediately got over some photos of a random secret half pipe they found in a parking lot from this past weekend (talk about striking gold). Hit the jump for more photos by Nels Sorensen, and go follow Steven (@stvn_mck_atck) and King’s (@kingsrideshop) while your at it….
I do not know the details at the moment but I have received word that Jason Enns broke his patella during a session earlier today. From the looks of the photos on Instagram @JasonEnns seems to be in good spirits even though the injury just looks to be so painful! Best Wishes Buddy! Feel better and get well soon my friend! The photo above is of Jason lacing a double peg to crooks and can be seen in our Family Poster.
Well he didn’t exactly win because there was no first second or third place. But there was a Best Rider, Best Line, and Best Trick. And seeing how Hucker was voted Best Rider, I’d say it’s a win! Especially when your voted Best Rider amongst some of the best trail dogs in the world! Here is what Huck had to say about it.
“I came here injured and just planned on just staying safe and having a good time. To think that everyone liked my riding that much that they voted for me, it’s a dream come true.” Mike Hucker Clark
Now watch highlights edit from the comp right HERE and see the insane cliffhanger flip that Huck does mid line to wrap up the edit!
Good job Hucker! Your the man.
The almighty no hander is a classic trick that every rider should have under their belt. Nothing looks better than a classic/ big no hander. When I first saw this article in DIG, I immediately laughed my ass off at the drawings and the descriptions. Also laughed that Biz got mentioned on doing the zombie no handers.
Everyone here at the Demolition family can’t thank you guys enough for following and supporting us this year and hope all you guys nothing but the best for 2013. Happy holidays!
Its official, Mike Hucker Clark wins Nora Cup Dirt! This could not have happened to better guy and an incredibly talented rider. Jason Enns was also in the house to announce Best Video Part which went to Dave Thompson in KillJoy. Be sure to click on the link and check out the rest of the photos from the night and see who else from Demo was in the house!
Mike has been on a Roll lately!! Between shredding in England on the Tea and Biscuits Tour, Going to Kill the Line and placing 2nd, and now, taking the win at the 2nd stop of the Lord of Dirt series. It’s sooo sick seeing one of the coolest dudes in BMX killing it all of the world and living it up!! Congrats Huck!! Photo courtesy of MastersOfDirt.Com
RIDE BMX has been putting up all sorts of cool #throwback stuff recently and they just put up this cool one of our very own team manager, Joey Cobbs. Not a lot of the newer riders know but Joey had a lot to do with a lot of brakeless tricks we still do today. What other t.m. can claim that and a 2002 cover of RIDE!
Always hard to think about someone you’ve known that has now passed on. Randy was an awesome rider and even better person. RIP old friend.
Stevie, Hucker and Doyle will be heading over to the UK to shred and visit with some shops. Our new UK distributor, Elephant has been coming through in a big way on making the trip an amazing time for the guys. Check the flyer (click above pic) to see all the stops they’ll be making. See you guys soon!
When do you know you’ve made it to the big times? When your photo is made into a van wrap and your plastered on the side of a GT van!? Well I’m not sure what it means but it’s still pretty cool.
ABoy has been putting in work lately filming for the upcoming KINK DVD and from the sound of it his section is going to be amazing! Recently Aaron went out filming in the streets of Boston with Darryl Tocco and Tony Hamlin, Lee Hopkins was also on hand with the camera handy and snapped this sweet Euro air by our boy Blue, I mean Aaron Smith! Click the image to see the full version and head over to the KINK site to see more photos from the day.
A BIG congratulations goes out to Christian and Connor and the rest of the Ben Wallace team for taking the win at the first Mongoose Jam over at Woodward West. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bigger smile on Christians’s face, so stoked for those guys!!! Check out the RideBMX website for full coverage right HERE!
Woodward West has a great story featuring Gabe Brooks, his life as a gymnast, and how he relates gymnastics to his current life as a pro BMXer. Check it out right HERE! Photo courtesy of Kalin Law.
Pat Casey went absolutely nuts this year at X Games Park and landed himself in 3rd place! I know Pat is totally stoked and we are stoked for him!! Check out one of Pat’s park final runs over at ESPN. Your the man Pat.
ESPN has a cool feature up on their site introduing Stevie Churchill to the 2012 Xgames street lineup! They also give a rundown of the rise of Stevie and how he came to earn the invite to this years Xgames. Check out the story right HERE. Can’t wait to see him out there killing it!
Damn near half the entire Demolition crew was in full effect at Chad Kerley’s first Vitamin Water Invitational. Rob Wise, Stevie Churchill, Connor Lodes, Christian Rigal, Ronnie Nepolitan, and Russ Barone were all in attendance!
Big thanks to Fudger and Z over at Ride for the amazing photos! Check the Ride Site for full coverage of the Chad Kerley Invitational
Christian has been globe trotting the past few months and if you didn’t already know he is straight addicted to Instagram. So I though put two and two together and see what he’s been up to the past few months through eye of Instagram. The last page has his instagram info so make sure to click through to the end all follow Christian!
Kris Fox recently did a bike show with Team Soil inside an active prison! They weren’t able to shoot any photos while inside the prison but it’s still a pretty crazy story. Click here to read all about it on the SE site.
Gabe has been a man on a mission this year and we’re barely a third the way through!! And this is only going to add to his list of accomplishments for the year. So stoked to get to release this months Demolition Parts edit of the man, Gabe Brooks!!
Our Cali Coast trip is well underway but we will be ending it Monday with a BANG! If your going to be in the Bakersfield area this Monday come chill with us at Action Sports at 3pm and say what’s up! Hope to see you there!
Our good buds, Mikey and Rick Lakin are throwing a jam for Thomas Hancock on March 17th. The turnout should be insane. Bands, food, good cause, hang with the homies and should be lots of fun. Check out the full flyer after the jump.
Rob has been in Australia hanging out with fellow Demo Pro, Dave Dillewaard, for most of the last two weeks and from the sounds of it they’ve been having a good time when not getting flooded out…. here is what Rob had to say;
Aus has been pretty awesome. Except the past while we’ve been fighting the weather. It’s been raining like no tomorrow. There was flash flood warnings there for a minute so that gives you an idea on how crazy the rain has been. It looks like the weather should be nice for the rest of the week so we can get back at it. – Rob
Dennis Enarson’s house, aka the Makrit house, has a photo gallery up on ESPN’s website. He lives with fellow Demolition Pros, Ronnie Napolitan, Christian Rigal, and Connor Lodes so with a crew like that you know it will be an interesting look into what those guys are getting into when they’re at home! CHECK IT HERE!
Demolition shredders Chris Doyle, Ronnie Napolitan and Dennis Enarson all make appearances in my year end photo feature with Dig Magazine, called 12xU. 12XU is a 6 part photo gallery series which features a month by month timeline of 2011 from DIG photographers; Rob Dolecki, Andrew White, myself, David Leep, Ricky Adam and Fred Murray. Check it!
From everyone here at Demolition Parts, we just wanted to thank everyone for all the support you’ve given us throughout the years. Much love to all my peeps, see ya’ in 2012!
We just put our fitted D hats on sale for $10.99. Check their page for details.
Complex just put up their 25 Best Up and Coming riders. While some of the guys have been around for awhile, their list does have a lot of our riders. Tate Roskelley, Stevie Churchill and Dennis Enarson are all on the list. We also have a lot of our flow/ B team guys we hook up like, Mike Mastroni, Gabe Brooks and Hucker. Check the full article HERE.
This is seriously the best thing I’ve seen all month. Ball Park is donating $1 per view (up to $100,000) to the Athlete Recovery Fund. All you gotta do is watch the video. You could actually help a fellow rider out with just a view. Awesome!
This year we tried something new and had our “booth” inside our hotel at the Venetian instead of having it inside the convention center. It definitely was a lot more intimate and hands on with everyone that came by. We displayed a slew of new goods and actually had a great turnout from our core shops and a few new ones. We had some product posters made for the event w/ all our new goods. Thanks again too all those that came by the room to hang and check us out. Check out the samples and new products coming out soon after the jump.
This has been one of the biggest years for us in a long while. The Nora Cup awards put on by Ride BMX is the award for the best riders/ video in the biz. To even be nominated is a huge honor. This year our video, Last Chance was nominated for Best Video. While we still got beat out by Anthem 2, it was still awesome to see Last Chance nominated.
We also had two of our riders, Dennis Enarson and Chris Doyle win awards this year. Dennis was almost nominated in every category too. He took home the award for Best Ramp Rider and Best Video Part. He’s such a ripper and loves riding more than anyone I know. It was awesome to see him up there getting what he deserved.
Two-Peat for our main man, Chris Doyle. I had a feeling he’d take it home and sure enough he did. One of the hardest working guys out there and an honor to be able to support/sponsor such a guy. See ya’ next year Nora Cup!
Support a fellow rider, Mike Tag if you’re in the Fort Wayne, IN area. Should be a good turnout and it’s for a great cause. Everyone in the Demolition family wishes Mike a speedy recovery. Hang tough buddy! For the full flyer click
ESPN just did an an interview with a select few of pros and most all agree to stop the hate. Check the LINK for the whole writeup.
“Twelve riders, one question time again. This time out, we asked twelve pros and personalities what was the one thing that they would change about BMX. Surprisingly, the majority leaned towards eliminating all of the hate and negativity in BMX, and letting people ride however they want to.”- ESPN
STF BMX is having their 1 year anniversary jam. Check the flyer after the jump for more info.
Volume just put up their 10 year flipbook commemorating Enns’ time with the company. They also came out with a new/ modern Destroyer. Go support a legend and get a signed Destroyer from the man himself.
Kurt at bmxunion.com has up our first full review and giveaway up on Last Chance. It’s definitely interesting hearing how each person has their own favorites and it’s not just certain guys getting all the love. I guess that goes to show the teams riding diversity and style.
“Should you buy the video? Yes. Everyone produced real good parts, the filming and editing turned out great, the sound track is awesome and in all honesty… you don’t want to miss Dennis’ section. It’s un-fricken’-believable.”-BMX Union
Our Australian distro, BMX MILITIA are having their premiere at BB’s Bar in Bondi Beach. Very cool venue and should definitely be an awesome time. Check the full flyer after the jump.
Alfredo has been making big moves lately. He just got bumped up on DC roster and has a new signature bar, Cougar bar coming out from Volume soon too. I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of him this year. Click pic to go BIG!
These bad boys were originally supposed to be available for our premiere but got lost in transit by UPS. After circling North America, they’ve finally arrived. Trust us, it’s worth the wait! We have one of the more diverse team out there and everyone has their own unique style. It’s definitely a video to watch over and over again. Everyone that worked on the video, absolutely killed it. Can’t wait to start hearing the reviews.
The premiere for Last Chance went off last night, everyone seemed to really love the video. The vibe and energy was absolutely amazing. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Big thanks to DC shoes and especially Mike Aland (DC BMX TM) for making the whole premiere happen at their warehouse. HUGE thanks to everyone in the video. We absolutely have the best team out there. Every single one of em’ went above and beyond. Copies of the the video will be getting out there on Mon. Thanks again for coming out!
If you’re in the area, be sure to check it out!
We are finally wrapping up the Last Chance DVD, as well as locking down the first US premiere. DC Shoes stepped up huge for us and our team (they sponsor a big portion of the team) and decided to have it at their warehouse in Huntington Beach, Ca. The premiere is open to everyone! There will be multiple showings, so that everyone won’t be left out and not be able to see the video. All ages are welcome too. There will also be free alcoholic beverages (while supplies last of course) on hand for those of you that really want to party. Our whole team will be there, partying and mingling around with everyone. Last Chance has been in the works for a long time and I know the guys feel relieved that it’s finally over and just want to sit back and finally watch and party with everyone.
If you guys want to be the first to get the DVD, we’re going to be selling copies of the DVD at the premiere. Be a good time to have one signed by the whole team too… if you’re into that sort of thing.
See ya’ there!
Kink just put up their flipbook on their 2012 bikes. Doyle’s bike has some of his Demolition parts. Just need to raise that seat up for Chris, j/k Chris. We love ya! Check it here kinkbmx.com/2012collection/
Dennis just hit me up to let me know that he’s putting on a benefit jam over at his house, April 2nd. All proceeds will go to the legend himself, Mike Aitken. Dennis just recently redid his ramps and trust me, it’s fun as hell. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime to ride the ramps, watch Dennis ride (trust me) and to help Mike out. It’s without a doubt worth the door fee of $10… and then some. We’ll have more details (address and time) up asap. Above pic is from my first shots of Dennis back in June of 05, sorry D. Haha
Sorry for the site being down for most of the day. We’ve had some difficulties updating the site’s backend and ended up losing files. As you can see, only the blog and the major pages (distributors, warranty and contact) are still up. We’ll have it fixed and better than before by Mon. Sorry again.
Everyone here at Demolition Parts wishes you all a merry Christmas. Thanks for all the support this year.
Another year of Interbike is done, good to see ol’ buds and hang with new ones. See you guys in Ana-Crime (Anaheim) next year.
