Doyle was in town for the weekend before his Kink tour and we shot a couple bangers on dirt, concrete and water. Put this GoPro photo of him jumping through a fountain up on Instagram the other day and figured we’d get it on the blog too. Expect to see more photos from the weekend soon…
Ever wonder what it’s like to travel as much as a top pro bmxer? By no means is Mike “Hucker” Clark a “normal” pro but he travels more than most and is possibly the best at entertaining himself to keep it fun and not get burnt out. We decided to sit down with Mike and see what it takes, and hear about some of his stories on how he keeps it fun. “So I just turned around and pooped in the shower while we was taking a shower.” Hit more to read one of our funniest interviews we’ve done.
It’s time for a weekly dosage of Red Bull‘s Tip To Tail. This week, in Episode 3, the dudes sessions a few amazing parks and a local set of trails. Check back next week for Episode 4!
Our April drop with all our new goods just arrived and what better way to celebrate other than a badass photo of Rob Wise and all the new parts (Marble parts, Axes grips, Bipolar pegs, and Hucker seat). Click image to go big >>
“Decided to plan a road trip to escape the end of the Canada winter and ended up driving down to Austin TX from Vancouver BC to pick up my my good buddy James Van DE Kamp and Mike Carroll. James was living in Austin for the winter and Mike flew down to Austin so he could road trip back up to Canada with us. Ended up taking us 3 weeks to drive home. Got to meet so many rad people and ride some unreal spots. Filmed a little bit on the trip. Huge thanks to everyone who gave us a house to stay at, and Mike, James, and Sam Stebila for helping film this video. Nothing but good times.” – Corey Walsh
Not every cover photo is the perfect situation; It could be in the middle of the night, deck on fire, raining and you’re tired but Dennis and Ruben made it all happen. Here’s the video of it all going down.
As a compliment to the all-encompassing video we posted yesterday, I went ahead and put together this rather awesome timeline of what Ruben Alcantara, Dennis Enarson, Vincent Perraud, and Christian Rigal went through to get their photo. As Ruben states it, as everyone was eating burritos from Taco Bell in sunny SoCal, they were out putting in work to make it happen. And obviously their hard work paid off, as Vincent scored the cover with his amazing photo. Again, thank you to everyone involved! – RIDEbmx
When Chris and Aaron asked if they could make this happen, I had no idea how much they actually go through during their winter. What I thought was going to be a 2 day filming mission at a couple indoor parks, turned out to be a lot more intense due to the weather. In the end, both Aaron and Chris came through with some amazing clips at the parks. Thanks again to Lee for making this video happen and Rye and the Wheel Mill for allowing the guys to film at their parks. Below is Chris’ description on what went down:
“Winters in the northeastern United States can be long and cruel… this past winter has been particularly merciless. Therefore, myself and long time friend and teammate, Aaron Smith decided to get together with Lee Hopkins to film an edit to highlight how so many BMXers stay on their bikes while living in a cold climate. The whole edit was to take place at Aaron’s home park in Rye, NH, Rye Airfield. True to form, a day into filming, a blizzard came and rocked the northeast, causing a massive shutdown of business and travel and we could not finish the edit at Rye as planned. When I was finally able to make it back home to Pittsburgh, I decided to round out the edit by filming a few clips at my local indoor facility, The Wheel Mill. Now, enjoy this short edit and let’s embrace spring and warmer temps but always remember to support your local indoor parks! A special thanks to The Wheel Mill and Rye Airfield!” – Chris Doyle
The boys are back again this week for Episode 2 of the Tip to Tail series. Watch as Hucker, Fox, Bohan, & Leeming session more amazing skateparks and then get into some fun outside of BMX. Stay tuned to the Red Bull NZ website for for Tip to Tail episodes coming soon.
Matt took a big fall last December and has been staying busy off his bike for a bit but that hasn’t stopped him from shooting photos and filming his buds. He just got back on the ol’ horse and is already at his usual self (see photo above). Photo by Nathan Sykes
“In the beginning of December I got hurt resulting in a broken jaw and breaking my teeth from my jaw. During my down time I’ve been shooting lots of photos and filming a couple edits for some friends, just trying to pass my time. Finally 4 months later I’ve been released for some light riding. Recuperation is going good, I started riding about 2 weeks ago. The hardest part is being careful not to ride too hard and hit my face, my teeth are still a little loose so I’ve just been cruising getting back to the feel of things.” – Matt Cordova
You know anything to do with Hucker is gold. The man loves to ride, and loves to have fun while doing it (and not doing it). Dig just put up a Re Print of his Trail Reflections interview and as always, it’s a good read and worth another look. Photo above: Dreamline 2013. Perfect 360 table. Photo by Wes McGrath
RideBMX just put up their “Rise From Demise” spread with Tyler Fernengel from the January/February 2015 issue of the magazine. It covers Tyler searching out spots with RideBMX for some picturesque photos in the desolate areas of the recently bankrupt Detroit, MI. It’s a great read, and they added some unseen photos that never made it into the mag. Some fun facts from the article: Tyler gets hot dogs with Eminem down on 8 Mile on the reg, and Detroit averages 14 cases of arson a day (only one of these is true). Tyler is an unbelievable rider, and combining that with the beautifully decrepit scenery and black/white photos just makes it an awesome article. Check it out <HERE>. AND, a Happy 19th Birthday to the Fern!
Corey made his way south and not only did he make his rounds to every skatepark/ trails, he also made a name for himself for destroying every single one of em. Check out this latest Vital video of him with the proof.
“Ex-pro racer turned full-time transition destroyer Corey Walsh recently trekked down from the Great White North to steeze his way around some San Diego hot spots. Watch as he pedals full speed and blasts everything in his path. Corey is ridiculously good at bike riding.” – Credit: Vital BMX
Our all new Spring tees just dropped and already shipping out to dealers/ distros and mail order shops now. Check em out in all their glory and in full detail on our apparel page here now >>
Only a couple weeks off of one of the most amazing looking trips ever, Red Bull has already released the 1st episode of the Tip To Tail series featuring Kris Fox, Hucker, Corey Bohan, and Jaden Leeming. Check it out and stay tuned for a new Episode every Wednesday. “In this episode, the riders travel to Cape Reinga, the very tip of the North Island. From there it’s all action from Kaitaia through to Cambridge as they begin their epic road trip southward towards the tail of New Zealand.” Red Bull NZ
RIDEbmx just put up a full description and then some on our plastic pegs and our new Bipolar pegs. “Demolition is still in the forefront of plastic pegs.” Check out the full writeup here >>
Our friends over at VitalBMX just put up an awesome March 2015 Photo Gallery by Brandon Means featuring Dennis, Connor, Christian, and more. Above Christian gets steezy with a fence ride to flatty. Head over to the Vital site to check the full gallery.
Kris met up with his good bud, Jason Watts (and Boyd Hilder) while in Australia and filmed some amazing lines/tricks at these incredible parks and had a lot of fun in the process…
“The whole video is about just havin fun; bros filming bros and just having a good time all the time. Filmed this whole vid in 3 days full of bowls and concrete parks from Brisbane, Sunshine coast and Gold Coast. Big thanks to Boyd Hilder for helping to film and driving around even thoe we had to push start his car everyday stoked on how the vid came together hope you enjoy”
DIG has up a rad feature with Chris Doyle on Through The Years with a gallery and interview. Check it out here >>
“Chris Doyle… a name in BMX that not only conjures up images of those signature 360 turndowns and inverts, but also thoughts of well-rounded rider with a big personality that even your grandma would admire. We’ve collected a good amount of photos of Big D through the years since his first DIG interview article in 2000 so why not sit back and browse through fifteen years worth of great photography, and enjoy some wise (ass) words from the man himself too. This is Chris Doyle ‘Through The Years’.”
Just got a heads up from Kris Fox himself about the new Red Bull Tip to Tail New Zealand teaser that Hucker and Kris were on. “Here’s the link to the Red Bull Tip to Tail trip teaser. A BMX trip of a lifetime from the tip of the North Island to the tail of the South Island of New Zealand. Over the next four weeks, a new episode will drop every Wednesday.” – Kris Fox
I don’t know how hard this thing is to ride but Tyler made it look damn easy by all his Instagram Videos he put up. He airs the damn thing like any other quarter too! No hander photo taken by J.Cobbs while on our last Demolition X QBMX Florida trip. Click photo to go big!
Missed Aaron’s X Kink’s One Hit Wednesday yesterday, so here we are putting it up today. This insane wallride clip of Aaron taken from Kinks Squash It video part is just nuts!
We’ve moved! 180 Distribution, mothership of Demolition Parts, has officially moved, and we’re all set up in our new location in AnaCrime….ahem*…I mean Anaheim, CA. After 5 years at a location that seemed like gold in the beginning, we’re finally out of our haunted warehouse (no joke) that would also flood during the occasional California rainstorm. And we all know that a California rainstorm really isn’t all that much water. So, the pool above fits more than you know. Our address is now 2760 E. Regal Park Drive, Anaheim, CA 92806, and we have a whole new toll free number (877-488-1369). Disney lunch trips here we come!!!
Dennis has up a bike check gallery up at RIDE UK and featured this badass downside whip to disaster while Enns makes sure nothing happens to his dirt halfpipe he made. “No dig no ride!”
BMX road trips are usually a good time to ride with your friends and get into a ton of trouble… especially if you’re with Hucker. Rob breaks down his time in Florida and what all went down with the crew while not riding.
Wow, what a perfect way to start out the week! RideBMX just dropped a new GT in LA video featuring Rob Wise, Jeremiah Smith, and Brian Kachinsky. Hit play and enjoy 3 minutes of straight bangers from everyone!
Our shipment of all shipments is about to arrive next month and will include our new Marble colorway for our aluminum parts, Hucker seats (Tripod and Pivotal versions), Axes grips, and BiPolar pegs. We’re damn excited for them all to arrive and show them off to the masses asap but in the meantime, you can just drool from the above photo.
Aaron is a seasoned vet on the team but was one of the few that has never been on a trip with Tyler and Hucker together. Think he got a hand full of fun with those two to say the least too. Especially with a quote like this “Hucker shitting in the tub while Fern was showering.” Click more to read it all.
Our QBMX X Demolition trip to Florida came and went last month but with the rain came lots of goods times for everyone still. The crew was randomly picked and a couple of the guys never even met till this trip but turned out that everyone got along great and came through with some solid photos and a good trip for everyone. Below is a mini interview with Tyler about the trip and some of his highs and lows that were had. “I was really stoked on the gator, it just tasted like chicken to me.” Photos by J.Cobbs. Stay tuned for Rob Wise’s Q&A soon… Read more here>>
Our boy Ronnie Napolitan recently went under the knife for double ACL surgery. Anyone who’s had a knee injury knows how gnarly an ACL surgery is, but I can’t even imagine having both knees done at the same time! Jorge Jovel put together this awesome Road Less Traveled video with Ronnie about his road to recovery. It’s pretty crazy how quick his recovery is coming along. Stay strong buddy, we can’t wait to see you back on a bike!
Ever wondered what Rob Wise’s set up is like? Well you’re in luck, our friends over at RideBMX just put up a feature of Rob’s current whip. Most pro’s bike checks these days are pretty predictable with the usual 4 plastic pegs, brakeless, and new-school frame geometry. That’s not the case for Rob. His frame geometry is vastly different from what most ride, he’s currently only running two metal pegs, and he still chooses to ride with brakes. It’s always refreshing to see a guy at the forefront of progressive riding, like Rob, be so particular with his set up and not follow trends. Check out the full bike check and re-watch Rob’s recent Wheelset Promo Video!
To go along with Rob’s last banger wheel edit, we whipped up this ad of his over ice on the 5′ wall in the video. Check out the whole video HERE to see it live and be sure to buy the wheels here too: Rotator Wheel>> Bulimia Wheel>>
Connor and Christian went out to ride with Enns in the Inland Empire for the day last week, and came back with some cool photos that Christian shot (Connor shot the ones of Christian). Check out the photos after the jump.
Dennis Enarson just dropped an unreal edit this week for Haro. It really is mind-blowing. It’s unbelievable how good Dennis is, how he can not only pull the most insane tricks and lines, but make them look effortless; even when he does them opposite. Then to find out he pretty much had a bum back during the filming makes it that much more jaw-dropping. If there was ever a stamp of approval and endorsement of reliability for Dennis’s Rig line, then that was it. Rig bars, tires, and 24mm cranks all taking the beating and rolling on. Check out what the man himself had to say in Rig Line interview we did with him last Sept here>>
The dream trip is finally over! After three weeks of road tripping from the very north tip of New Zealand to the very south tip, the Red Bull Tip to Tail crew wrapped up a trip that had all of us at the office foaming from the mouth. Amazing empty parks, perfectly sculpted trails, and more breath taking sceneries rounded out the southern half of the trip. Check out the full gallery by Graeme Murray and story on the Red Bull site. If you missed the update from the first half of the trip, you can check that out here.
Holy shit, this is what I’ve been waiting for all month! And in typical Dennis Enarson style, he came through with an absolutely insane edit that you’ll be blown away from the very start. Don’t read, just watch! Filmed/ Edited: Christian Rigal for Haro Bikes
All our new Marble aluminum parts are due out end of March and since we are still like lil’ kids in a candy store, we decided to build up a bike with all the new Marble parts we have coming out. Don’t mean to be too biased but damn it looks sick!! Click more to see em in all their glory.
East coast powerhouse, Aaron Smith once again comes through with some solid clips for his latest edit for OLP. Check out the last A-Boy ad we did that went with this same edit HERE>> Video by Lee Hopkins
Vital BMX just dropped a really cool slide show of Senor Smiles himself, Connor Lodes (@connor_lodes), exploring beautiful Ocean Beach, CA in search of spots with Brandon Means. There are some really cool spots that are definitely not lacking in scenic views, and Connor puts them to good use. Connor has such a clean style, and these photos highlight it well. To say Brandon has an eye for good photos is quite an understatement, and he doesn’t limit himself to just bmx, so give him a follow on Instagram too (@brandonmeans).
As most of you probably know, back in 2013, Pat put an amazing ramp set up in his yard. Shortly after, he teamed up with Monster to put out a crazy edit called Dream Yard. Now this year, Pat got Adam Aloise to add a sick set of trails to the yard and once again teamed up with Monster for this video, Dream Yard 2. So many wild things go down, just press play and enjoy the madness!
Yesterday’s wheelset promo got me thinking about past Rob Wise edits and video parts. It’s ridiculous how under-rated he is. When he’s in a video, he’s either ending it or opening it like our 2010 “Last Chance” full-length or Ryan Navazio’s “Left/Right”, and when he drops a web edit he’s usually doing things 95% of pro riders today would consider their ender to a video part. I know he’s not really concerned with it, but he sure enough doesn’t get the recognition he should. Anyway, I went back and checked out a couple of his past edits and decided to re-up his September 2011 Demolition edit. Keep in mind this is almost 4 years old. shot/edit: Christian Rigal
Don’t ever sleep on Rob Wise, he’ll always come through with the most insane move, and all while making it look way too easy. He put this wheel promo together with Mastroni throughout a few trips and came through with a solid Rotator/ Bulimia wheelset promo.
Filmed & Edited by Mike Mastroni

Music: Uriah Heep – “Easy Livin”
Just like the title implies, Bell Helmets held a winter jam at Joyride skatepark and flew out skatepark assassin, Connor Lodes, to shred the place to pieces with the locals. The park just built an amazing A-frame setup and held a best trick contest on the setup for Am and Pro classes. The edit starts out with some awesome clips of the Con-man and follows up with equally crazy clips for the many talented riders that live in the Toronto area. This edit was filmed and produced by the fine folks at Northern Embassy, thanks dudes!! Awesome watch for sure!
Hucker, Fox, and our homie Bohan have been on a Red Bull‘s #TipToTail trip for the past couple weeks, driving all the way across New Zealand in a couple RVs. So far, it looks like there has been no shortage of good times! Red Bull just put up a huge update from the first half of the trip in the North. Check it out HERE and stay tuned for more updates from the South. Sounds like there will be a web series to follow as well, can’t wait to see that! Photo by Graeme Murray.
The fine folks at Kink BMX have release the second installment of their latest video series, One Hit Wednesday, with Demolition’s sultan of style Chris Doyle. This clip is from Kink’s 2008 DVD safety first, Doyle had this absolutely insane manny gap to rail on the todo list for a while and when the crew was wrapping up filming for the project Doyle knew it was time to cross this one off the list. I would say that most riders will never pony up to a manual gap to rail, let along one this huge, and most would have taken the feeble even if it was an accident. But Doyle being the perfectionist and the professional that he is stepped up to the plate a second time and laced his banger perfectly. Always good to see amazing clips like this get re-hashed for another opportunity to shine.
A few weeks back we released our most recent series of posters that we coined “The Penny Posters”. We wanted to come up with a cool series of shots that the riders on the posters would be stoked on as well as the riders who are hanging the posters on their wall. Dennis’ was pretty straight forward, shoot something huge on the streets that shows that the rig line can take a beating and keep on ticking. Tyler and Huckers however, we weren’t sure what to do. I spoke with Tyler about what he would want to do and he mentioned it would be cool to jump something that you don’t see everyday. I thought about it for a bit and realized that the warehouse has a forklift, and there you have it. Once we knew what we wanted to do for Tyler’s poster we were on to Huck’s. Hucker’s idea just came from combining a few things that he loves, fire, fireworks, and sketchy jumps, and we decided to shoot it in the dessert because thats pretty much the only place you can set big things on fire and maybe not get harassed for it. So now that you know a bit of the backstory, click on the post and see some behind the scenes from the making of Demolition’s Penny Poster Series!
RideBMX just dropped a little appetizer of a TrickFix video with our very own Rob Wise alongside GT Bicycles teammates Jeremiah Smith and freshly minted GT rider, Brian Kachinsky. Rob and his mates were just out here not too long ago and caught up with RideBMX filmer/rider Zach Krejmas for a video project. This TrickFix is just the tease for the full video dropping later this week, so keep an eye out for that. I’ve personally been to this park, and let’s just say that fence is high. Like, Rob Wise-high. And if you’re looking for a little more Rob Wise, check out our “At Home With Rob Wise” feature we did not too long ago.
Demolition Style Cat, Matt Cordova, met up with homies Larry Edgar, Nathan Sykes and brother Joey Cordova at their home trails, FOD, to session the place to pieces for the lens of Zach Krejmas. The fine folks at RideBMX are always producing awesome original content and this edit fits right in there, enjoy.
Connor Lodes’ frame sponsor, Kink BMX, has a new weekly video installment called One Hit Wednesdays and their first release is with the Ocean Beach nice guy himself. Some setups are obvious one time setups and this rail hop needle thread is definitely one of those setups, the scary thing is it ended up taking Connor three goes before he rolled away clean, upping the danger factor signifigantly each time he had to hit it again. Stoked he kept his bars clear and nailed the clip before getting the boot.
Stagnation from the sounds of it is a full length video focused on all things action sports filmed and put together by Ryan Walters. The BMX section features mostly park and trails but it does start off with an awesome slo mo montage of our boy Kris Fox doing what he does best. And before the edit is over you will also see some rad clips from Hucker, Doyle and extended family member, Coco Zurita. Hit play and enjoy so slow mo BMX goodness.
Day 7 of Demolition in Florida and it is our last day here in the sunshine state. Since we got rained out yesterday and haven’t had a ton of luck finding spots on this trip in general the crew was more than anxious to get out on the bikes for the last day of the trip. We started the day at a famous spot in Tampa with these awesome volcanos, it was hard knowing what has or hasn’t been filmed on the volcanos already but a few things were figured out and it was just a ton of fun riding them just to ride em. Hucker and Tyler did manage to find a random little grass flyout and proceeded to do tricks out of it that we never intended for such a halfass setup. After the volcano park we packed up the van and headed back to Orlando to squeeze in a session at the famous Maitland quarters. We didn’t have along at the spot before we needed to take Hucker to the airport so the crew wasted no time getting on the bikes and having a blast on this street setup that is pretty much too perfect to be true. After riding the quarters as much as we could we had to scramble and race to the airport to get Hucker to his flight, lucky for him we hit a string of green lights and open lanes and were able to get him checked with about sixty seconds to spare. Have fun in New Zealand Hucker and thank your Florida for the good times! Until the next adventure…
Ever wanted to know what Chris Doyle does in the winter in Pittsburgh PA? Keith Terra follows Chris throughout a whole day and comes through with the following highlights; eating breakfast Rocky would be proud of, walking his dog, riding his road bike 15m in jeans, shopping at Home Depot, remodeling a bathroom and finally killing the Wheel Mill park. Sounds like a solid day of a domesticated bmx pro to say the least. A very good one at that! Check out the whole story/ gallery here>>
Day 6 here in the sunny state and its raining again. The crew woke up stoked because we had ended the previous day finding a few awesome setups that they guys had ideas for and wanted to film at. The weather had been great the past few days so none of us suspected a thing, but when we all woke up to dark skies the mood shifted and we instantly started checking weather reports around the state to see what our option were. The reports said we had till 2pm before the storm would hit in Tampa, so we got out, hit some breakfast real quick and got to the spot round 10. We barely got out of the van and the crew just got warmed up when the rain drop started falling. By 11am it was pouring, a whole 3 hours ahead of schedule, so we started checking out hours for the indoor parks. After realizing there were no BMX hours that day for any local skateparks we took a note from “The Big Lebowksi” and said screw it dude, lets go bowling. Even though we got rained out we kept positive and had a blast bowling, and made frequent trips to WaWas and Dunkin’ Donuts. Be sure to click on the post and check out our day in the rain for day 6 of Demolition in Florida.
Does it really get any better than this! Fire, Dennis Enarson airing over Ruben Alcantara, and it’s all on the new RIDEbmx cover. This is badass! Photo by Vince Perraud
Howdy Howdy from us out here in Florida, its been a couple days since our last update so let me get you guys up to date on what we’ve been up to. Day 4 had us traveling south to Sarasota for the 3rd stop in the FLBMX contest series at the Payne Skatepark. The main bowl at the Payne park is filled with scary extensions, over vert bowl corners and more lines than can be counted and the locals we’re all killing it. After the contest, we checked in our hotel which happened to have a balcony so Tyler immediately dangled himself on said balcony(photo in gallery). We the cruised out to a beach on the Caribbean that had all the locals tripping out on watching the sun set over the ocean. Day 5 was our first full riding day and lucky for us we saw Matt Coplon the day before at the contest and he had told us about a few spots to check out when we had a chance. So we spent most the day cruising the streets of St Petersburg checking out the spots Matt told us about, we also stubbled on a building that was in the middle of being Demolished, so feeling a bit inspired by our namesake we tossed some cinder blocks around while Tyler did tricks on big street gap nearby. We had to hang onto the photo of Tyler’s gap but for now check out our photo gallery from days 4 and 5 from Demolition in Florida.
Mike Gray has up a cool lil’ feature on the Haro site for their first Destinations (Toronto) installment. There’s plenty of cool photos like the one above taken by J.Cobbs.
Day 3 of our trip out here in Florida and the skies are clear! After starting the day with the obligatory Cracker Barrel breakfast, the crew was stoked to get the chance to head over to Chad Degroot’s bike shop, Mr. Bikes N Boards, in Longwood Florida. Chad’s shop is sick! And in no time the guys were sessioning with the locals, shooting some pool, and eating pizza. Rob was extra stoked on the pizza part, you may not know by looking at him but the one thing Rob loves more than bikes, guns or girls, is FOOD and he loves the hell out of pizza so he was stoked. After hanging out at the shop for a bit we cruised over to the local prefab park and rode some more with the locals. The riders out in Longwood are sick and even though there park is a bit small they really make the most of it and shred the place to pieces. After the session we headed over to a local alligator bar and Hucker and Tyler bobbed hotdog pieces on gator noses until some got eaten, it was a little less exciting than all of us had hoped… All in all though it was a good day and were looking forward to more. Stay tuned for more updates from our Demolition trip to Florida!
Our man, Corey Walsh in Canada came down to SoCal to hang out, ride, and enjoy the nice weather we all take for granted. The other day he came by to visit us and ride the ramps. Couldn’t help but snap a couple shots of him while he was out back too. Check out more by hitting the top image.
Greetings from the sunshine state, and well, it’s raining! Or at least it was yesterday when the crew made it out to Kona skatepark and we were are within arms reach of getting to ride a place we’ve all dreamed of since we were kids. That place looks insane and we are all hoping we can make our way back up to Jacksonville for another shot at a Kona session. Since the rain killed the session yesterday we kept busy with mini ping pong tournaments and late night waffle house missions which kept everyone more than entertained while it was soggy outside. Day two though was shinning and good thing too because we landed an awesome hotel on Ormond Beach and Huck and Tyler immediately found a place to buy kites and they did the kid thing while the rest of us watched and tried not to get hit by cars on the beach. We then rolled over to The Bike Shop in Ormond Beach and chilled with all the shops guys and locals, the crew out there is rad and they ended the day by taking us out to the local park for a good ol fashion bike ride. Hucker was having some bike issues so he and Rob made lemons into lemonade and made the first ever bike centipede, Hucker has been talking a lot about the Human Centipede so he may have gotten inspiration from the movie but you’d have to ask him about that. We then watched Tyler shut down the skatepark with a couple of amazing clips, and you know with Mastroni behind the lens the clips are SO SICK! Cant wait for you guys to see, but for now, click on the post and check out all the rad photos from the crew’s first two days in Florida!
Remember those days of hanging posters up on your wall and just staring at them for hours? While BMX posters might be a lost art, we try and do our best to keep the dream alive. This batch with Dennis (above), Tyler, and Hucker are ones that we’re so stoked to see in poster format. They’re all absolutely nuts! And yes, they’re already on my wall. Click more to see all 3.

Tyler Fernengel and extended family rider, Kevin Peraza are officially on the Vans pro team and busted ass in this new Welcome To Vans video.
“These guys are no stranger to riding Vans and we would officially like to welcome Tyler Fernengel, TJ Ellis and Kevin Peraza to the Vans BMX Pro team. There are heaps of road trips planned throughout the year so these guys are going to hit the ground running in waffle soles. Music: “The River” by People’s Temple” – Vans
Rob Wise travels the entire world hitting beastly setups that no one else would dream of touching, in fact he does it so well he has built a career out of it. But what about when he’s at home? What does he do when he comes back from a trip and puts down the passport? Does he continue to shred spots to pieces or does he lay dormant in a cave somewhere waiting for his next BMX adventure? This interview dives into who Rob Wise at home, the domesticated Rob Wise, and guess what? He’s still dangerous as hell. Click on the post to find out what Rob does when he’s at home.
I for one have been honored to have ridden these jumps numerous times and to see them coming to an end definitely brings a tear to my eye. This Saturday, the Lakin’s are throwing the last ride at the legendary jumps, so come on out and bring the crew for a one of a lifetime last ride at the jumps.
Chris just sent over this badass photo of himself doing a classic Doyle fakie bars in the rafters at Ray’s. Another timeless photo of the man himself. Click image to go big! Photo by Murphy Lee Moschetta
Think everyone will agree that has seen our Last Chance video that Dennis Enarson’s part is absolutely insane. His ender for his part was one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen, and DIG caught up with him to talk about the last trick and what went into it.
“Continuing our “Ender Ender” series, we caught up with La Mesa California’s finest, Dennis Enarson and got the lowdown on his truly insane 2011 section, and DVD ender. Taken from the full length Demolition Parts video, Last Chance.” – DIG
Our boy, Ronnie “Combat” Napolitan just got a new steed and Vital decided to put it up on their site with a full bike check. As you know, he lost Redline as a sponsor and is now riding a Volume… This thing looks badass!
The Demolition Crew is coming to Florida to hang out and ride at a skatepark or bike shop near you. Check out the flyer and if your anywhere near Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota or Tampa be sure to come out and hang out! See you there.
The Union caught up with Dennis Enarson to talk to him about this thoughts on traveling all over the world, the good and the bad. You would think Dennis has been practically everywhere but in this interview you’ll find out where he’s been, where he hasn’t and where he would love to go someday. Click HERE to head over the The Union and check out Traveling with Dennis Enarson. All photos provided by Mark Losey, NikeBMX.
Vital’s Brandon Means linked up with teammates and roommates, Tyler Fernengel and Mike Gray, to see what it is like to live a day in their shoes. A few burnouts, barspins, a few waves and a volkswagen later and you get a vague idea of what it’s like to live the endless summer. Hit play and enjoy!
When I hear about a BMX racer that made the transition to park, I immediately think of Kris Fox but later heard from our Canadian distributor, Killemall about a kid named Corey Walsh that has a similar background as Kris. Corey also has a very similar riding style too, which is going scary fast at everything, and having amazing good style. Huge thanks again goes out to our Canadian distributor, Killemall distribution for making this all happen and getting Corey on our Canadian team.
Christian is easily one of the most active dudes in BMX, if he’s not riding he’s filming and if he’s not filming he’s shooting photos, and if he’s not riding, filming or shooting he’s looking for spots! So it’s not all the often that I get the chance to link up and ride some street with him and this last week we actually got to meet up twice for a sesh. Each time we had a blast hanging out riding some local spots and when the opportunity arose, we shot some photos too. And if you know Christian, anything he’s doing on his bike is rad and deserves a look to see what he’s up to. So click on the link and see what went down during two afternoon sessions with Christian Rigal.
Doeby Films just started releasing a cool little video segment called VXtras, pretty simply concept, just a couple of rad clips with the Ol’ VX. And one of the first installments is with Demolition’s Tyler “Young Fern” Fernengel. He is just too good!
You might think since Drew Hosselton recently finished up filming for his highly anticipated section in the upcoming Volume Bikes DVD, The Finer Things, that he may take some time off to relax and enjoy the fruits of successfully filming a DVD part. But not Drew, as soon as he wrapped up filming for the DVD he dove straight into his next project with good friend and fellow AZ enthusiast Greg Moliterno. The two will are traveling up and down every AZ Highway, exploring every unchecked corner of the state to find the most hidden and unique spots AZ has to offer in order to put together an edit that gives appreciation to their beloved state. And this here wild nose jam fakie is just the beginning of what Drew has in store for this project. So click on the photo to check it out BIG and be sure to save it as your brand new crispy ass desktop wallpaper.

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.

Rad lil interview with Hucker about winning Nora Cup, and everything else he has planned coming up and then some. Check it out at RIDE bmx here.
“Mike “Hucker” Clark is truly one-of-a kind. His riding style is loose, uninhibited, exciting, unpredictable, and always memorable. But the best thing about Mike is that for all of his incredible riding skill, he’s just as great off the bike—bringing a positive attitude, loads of fun, and a constant smile wherever he goes. It should come as no surprise that he walked away with his third NORA Cup in a row for #1 Dirt Rider in 2014.” RIDE BMX
This is one of my all time favorite posters we’ve ever put out. This photo of Kris Fox by Joey Cobbs screams “poster!!” The angle, the classic trick, and all the colors just pop. The back of the poster has all of our new 2015 parts and can be snatched up for a cool penny ($0.01) on our online store HERE>>
p.s. We doubled the image to fit the blog, it’s just one vertical shot on the poster and not mirroring.
