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.

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.

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.

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.
BMX Union just put up a Sneak Peek of our new Marble aluminum kit. Check it out HERE and get ready for it all to launch this March!
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.
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.

VitalBMX just gave honors to Demolition Legend/Hall of Fame Rider Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla for having one of the Top Ten Best BMX Video Part Songs from his part in Etnies “Forward” (2002). While it may not be an official ESPY or a Golden Popcorn, and there’s always an element of personal opinion, I’d say they hit the nail on the head here. As progressive, fast-paced, timeless, and just jaw-dropping as Rooftop’s part is in this video, it really needed an equally fast-paced and timeless song. “Kids of the Black Hole” by Adolescents really rounded it out well. His section was the pace-setter for “Forward” by opening up the whole video…..Oh, and the Rooftop on fire scene was absolutely and unashamedly filmed in our old warehouse. Watch his part, scour the recesses of the internet for the rest of the sections, and watch his last Demolition edit after you’ve watched this. Then go backflip over a helicopter off of a rail….on fire.
We’re so stoked to finally get out our new 2015 goods this year that we’ve been showing off since 2014′s Interbike show.

The Left/Right DVD by Ryan Navazio that came out in 07 dropped online a couple days ago, and just watched Rob’s parts again for the 100th time just now. It’s one of those timeless parts where he drops some heavy bangers. You definitely don’t want to miss watching this again, and realize that it came out 8 years ago. Also, be sure to check out the Vimeo page for the full writeup on how the video came about.

So we’ve posted the edits from the Markit New Years Cash Jam this morning and here are the photos from the day. So just in case you missed something amongst the madness you can see it here in still form. It’s always awesome to see photos to go along with clips so you get that extra chance to look over the craziest moves from the day and see all the details of the trick that makes them so rad. Be sure to click on the post and check out all photos from the crazy shit that went down during the Markit New Years Cash Jam.
So the Markit Cash Jam is in the books and what a blast it was! There was an awesome mix of Pro riders, who have ridden the ramp before and knew the lines, and Am riders who had never step foot on the Markit ramps and had to figure out the ramp on the spot. Regardless of Pros or Ams, everyone killed it and everyone had a chance to win some cash for killing it! The jam started off with the highest alleyoop over the hip, then Demolition’s Satellite Slayer, followed by East County BMX’s Euro Jam and then they day wrapped up with an overall ramp cash jam where if you did something crazy you got instant cash money. Here is Dig’s perspective from the jam courtesy of DOEBY and be sure to click on the post in order to check out the Jam edits from Vital and RideBMX!

Dennis and I were lucky enough to go on a trip to Portugal to film an edit for Nokia phones. The whole edit was filmed with the new Nokia lumia which is pretty crazy. Thanks to Hadrian for having us come out to ride and have an adventure in Portugal. From the views to the spots, Portugal was amazing! We got to ride some skateparks as well as street when we were out there and like you can see in the edit, it was all awesome. Of course Dennis was doing the most insane stuff on a daily basis. Even though I know how good he is he still seems to surprise me with something new all the time. We were out there for 10 days and on the last day Dennis and I both got sick. He got it the worst, we are thinking it was food poisoning from the last place we ate at. The whole trip we had an awesome friend showing us around and taking us to the best places to eat, and of course on the last day he wasn’t there and we got sick as shit. Thanks Hadrian, nuno, and Hugo for showing us around and hanging out and making this trip one that won’t be forgotten! – Ronnie

“How’s it going guys? I hope all is well.
I just wanted to check in and send over some photos from the GMG Trails in Pittsboro, Nc. They held a jam for my buddy Darren Bouldins (@darrenbouldin) birthday.
Nick Digeroloma (@nickdige) got these photos for me from the jam so I thought I’d send them over. I filmed a bunch of clips for my buddy’s video he’s working on for his shirt brand, Pareidolia, as well. I went down to Miami for 3 weeks after thanksgiving for some school shows with my buddy Jared Ward and Joey Scarborough. And then I’m headed to Mass at the end of December for a few months to film for it more and chill with my family there. That’s about it for now, ”
junk·yard – ˈjəNGkˌyärd – a place where scrap is collected before being discarded, reused, or recycled.
Street riders always keep an eye out for an spots, things to ride that weren’t meant to be ridden. Some riders have taken that further than others. Tate Roskelly has taken his riding and spot finding to a place where most riders do not recognize, his spots look different from everyone else’s and its because he see’s it a different way. We sat and watched as Tate was given a blank canvas; other people’s trash, and managed to turn it into treasures. Check it out after the jump.
We’re beyond stoked for Tyler Fernengel (Readers’ Choice Award) and Mike “Hucker” Clark (Dirt Rider Of The Year) getting RideBMX Nora Cup 2014 awards that we whipped up this congratulatory ad up for them.
