UK Week: Jordan Aleppo Welcome to Demolition

To kick off Demolition UK Week, we would like to officially Welcome Jordan Aleppo as our first new UK Demolition rider.

“The fact that Jordan Aleppo is at the very frontier of today’s street riding progression is probably the least noteworthy thing about him – his unique blend of self-confident humour, homemade slang and general ‘Lads On Tour’ demeanour make for nonstop entertainment – and when combined with his strong work ethic and undeniable bicycle talent, you end up with a character we’re more than stoked to welcome as an official UK Demolition team rider.” – Steve Bancroft/Elephant Distribution.

Supermans for Hotdogs

Our distributor in the UK, Elephant Distribution, has been making some big moves lately and doing a lot good things across the pond. Last Sunday they fully took advantage of the first dry day they had seen in weeks by building a box jump at their headquarters and inviting a bunch of friends over to ride and enjoy some hotdogs. Things like this are what we love about BMX. Be sure to keep an eye out next week as we are kicking off our Demolition UK Week. We’ll be announcing our new UK Team, dropping official Welcome Edits, and more. Huge thanks to Steve and Russell at Elephant for sending over the photos.

Demolition & QBP Northwest Trails Trip ReUP

Kicking off 2014 BIG we’ve decided to re-post our latest trip edit stacked with a big crew, big trails, big air, and in the middle of BIG country, the great NorthWest. To try and make this trip happen in October may not have been the smartest mover ever, but with the crazy traveling schedules of Chris Doyle, Hucker, Rob Wise, Ronnie Napolitan, Dave Dillewaard and Kris Fox you can find yourself waiting for years for the perfect time to take a trip like this. So we “Threw Caution to the Wind” and embarked on this seemingly doomed trip anyway. After a soggy start the weather got on our side and we were able to session four amazing trails from Seattle all the way down south to Sacramento and the result of it all is this awesome edit put together by the man, Mike Mastroni. Keep an eye out for edit #2 from this awesome trip which should be dropping soon. Also be sure to check out the article from the trip in issue 197 of RideBMX!

A Sigh of Relief with Dennis Enarson

I can’t speak for all photographer’s but my worst nightmare is being at the right place at the right time and just plain missing the shot. There are a million things that can cause you to miss the photo. Exposure, focus, lighting, timing, framing are all standing by to ruin the shot. It only takes one of these elements to ruin a photo and it takes all of them to make one.

The day this photo was shot Dennis had been riding this rail for a while trying to figure out something for it. He had a few things in mind, all of which were insane, but none of them were working out quite right. He then started floating these 180 downside whips out of the rail, not really coming close at first but if you know Dennis it doesn’t take him long to get something dialed in. So while he was feeling out the trick with his first few attempts, I was trying to get the framing just right so he was framed by the railing at the same time that the railing was blocking out the sun. It was optimistic framing at best, anytime the sun wasn’t blocked by the railing it completely blew out the whole shot, but when it worked I thought it looked great so I just kept the framing and tried to keep consistent with it. The next thing I knew Dennis floated a huge downside 180 whip, the first one he was on top of, and absolutely stopped the shit out of it. I had already snapped the photo and was praying that he would be able to complete the rollback which seemed to be happening in slow motion. Once he came out of the rollback we had a celebration and checked the footy, the sun was hidden behind the rail, the timing was good, and everything was in frame and in focus, breathing a huge sigh of relief!

This photo can be seen in Dennis’ rider of the year interview featured in DIG issue 97 and the clip can be seen in MarkitZERO!

Mike Hucker and Red Bull’s Urban Rhythm

Hucker and Red Bull continue to be on a creative roll and this time the pair teamed up with Houston local graffiti artists to put together an event called Urban Rhythm. This edit covers the building of the course, the artists painting every surface in sight, the rain that almost ruined the entire event, the crew recovering from the soaking, and the event itself once night set it. Tyler Fernengel was also on hand for the event along with Rob Wise, Coco Zurita and several other heavy hitters. This is a must watch!

Connor’s Albion 17 Ad

demolition-albion17-connor-sm

 

Just looking at this pic makes me get scared of  the “what if” factor.  Jumping inside that roller coaster rail would be hard enough let alone getting the hell outta there at the end.  Guess that’s why Connor can bench 225lbs and I can’t.  This print ad was in the latest/ greatest Albion mag and features the Markit Pivotal seat.  If you don’t have a Markit seat, you’re missing out on a lot more than just the seat… You’ll be in the club of crazies! Pic by J.Cobbs.  Click top image to view the whole ad.

Reasons Why SD Is The Best From Dennis

bmx-rider-dennis-enarson-in-san-diego

Couple things that’s rad about Red Bull doing their original features with bmxers lately;  One would obviously be that it’s Red Bull and I’m sure their site gets a shit ton of more hits than the usual bmx blog site.  Another thing is that they don’t care about who, what and etc on what the content is.  Clearly not, cause most big drink sponsors would never do a feature on a pro rider that is not only sponsored by a competing brand but is wearing their competitors hat in their own feature.  Regardless, it’s definitely a win win for bmx and I just hope that we get more love from corporate companies like Red Bull (does that exist?) to help grow our sport that much more.  Click HERE to view what Dennis’ top reasons for living in S.D. are.

Demolition Ping Pong!

I know I know, what does ping pong have to do with BMX? Your right, nothing. But for those of you that are lucky enough to play ping pong you all know how crazy fun it is to battle your friends on the table. So with that in mind we had ourselves a little Demolition Ping Pong Tournament this last weekend at Demolition Headquarters in Southern California. And of course when there’s BMXers converging at a place that happens to have a private skatepark out back there was some riding that went down too. So if you love Ping Pong and BMX, click on the post and check out the photos from Demolition’s first ping pong tournament. Oh yeah and Corey Bohan won, but we don’t have to dwell on that fact too much….. Until next time.

Ghost Hub X-Ray

ghost-clear

One of my favorite favorite front hubs that we’ve done here at Demolition.  Some of the other front hubs that have bearings pressed up against the end of the shell that don’t have the lip blow-out over time due to stress on the shell.  With the Ghost hub, the bearings are pressed further into the hub body to prevent any stress towards the outside of the shell.  See for yourself… Click image to go big.

Re-Up: Ronnie Napolitan’s Combat Bar Edit

Ronnie’s video part in the new Markit Zero DVD is full of insane, well rounded riding and I’m proud to say that his Combat bar went the distance with him.  If you’ve seen his part and believe when I say that his signature 8.8″ Rise COMBAT bars were on throughout almost all of his whole part, that’s even more nuts.  If you don’t believe me, please buy the Markit DVD and see for yourself.  Above was his last Combat bar promo that is chock full of insane riding on just about anything you can think of.

It’s A Bird, A Bear… And A Bunny?

Right when you thought you’ve seen it all from Rooftop, Biz and Enns, they come up with this.  In typical Rooftop fashion, he had something big up his sleeve for a New York Times celebrity animal photo fundraiser and came up with this amazing idea to dress up in these wild animal costumes and do what he does best.  He said the skydiving shots in the big bear costume was the most insane due to not being able to see and maneuver around easy in.  Which might stop the average “bear” but not Mike.  He also recruited Enns and Biz to get in on the fun with the antics too.  I have to admit the ones of Mike in the bear costume about to scare the living crap out of the homeless guy made me loose it.  I could only imagine what that guy was thinking when he woke up, blahaha.  You can read about each shot more on Mike’s Instagram where he already put up most of these same pics.  By the way, he broke the most likes on GoPro’s 1.2m followers Instagram account with 133k likes.  Crazy!  Click more to see some more amazing pics of the insanity.  Click the top image to view all 11 pictures.  Huge thanks to Mike and Paul Luna for the pics.

This Is Awesome!

I knew Chris had a cousin that was pro back in the day but didn’t think too much about it since he was pro before my time.  Seeing this video and seeing how much Roger even looks like Chris, it’s surreal to think his cousin was a badass pro back in his day.  Seeing them ride together, you’ll notice that Roger has a bit of a wild side but can definitely still bust out at 40+.  This is cool as hell and I’d highly recommend watching it for those those that always wished they had a BMX legend in the ol’ family tree.
“They say it’s a small world, and BMX is, apparently, an even smaller one.  As it turns out, Chris Doyle, one of the most prolific and talented riders of our time, has a cousin named Roger Sullivan who was a professional BMX rider in the late 1980s.  I had to learn more about this highly unlikely family connection, so Chris and I headed down to Florida to meet up with Roger, hang out, and ride bikes with this BMX legend from the past.”  – Walter Pieringer
