One of my favorite videos of all time, Markit Zero went live last night on iTunes. Demolition riders, C.Lodes, D.Enarson, R.Wise, R.Napolitan and C.Rigal and the rest of the team absolutely killed it. Be sure to support one of the most badass teams in BMX by clicking that Buy Button HERE.
Dennis just sent through this edit from Texas Toast that his sunglass sponsor, Oakley, put together. The riding in this is awesome as you’d expect but Dennis gives honest opinion as to why Toast is that much better than other contests going on right now. Also I’m glad to hear that both Tyler and Hucker are OK from the slams they took in this edit, be prepared, they’re tough to watch. That being said, this edit is rad, hit play and enjoy.
What’s up guys,
I’ve been home for a little more than a month enjoying the New England fall weather. Riding Boston as much as I can before the snow hits and it’s time to move to a warmer climate. I wasn’t able to make it to toast this year because I had a bunged up wrist and couldn’t really ride. I’m bummed I missed out on some good times but there’s always next year. That’s about it on my end. I attached a couple photos from the past couple weeks. Shots by Lee Hopkins, check his site www.olpbmx.com
The Markit Jam and Premier went down this last Saturday and if you were lucky enough to be on hand then you saw one hell of a jam followed by one of the best BMX videos ever. Demolition hosted a Street Contest which was split up into two smaller contests, one on each street section at the park. Everyone on hand, pro and local alike, went absolutely nuts and made it an awesome event to witness. Demarcus Paul and Bid Daddy swopped up the win and the cash and the session continued into the night and onto the premier. A good full day of BMX for sure. Click on the post to check out some of the highlights from the Demo street comp at the Markit Clairemont Jam.
Oh man, this Instagram Slam is a good one. There’s some classic moves in here that the guys dusted off and of course Rooftop being funny as ever. Couple zingers definitely made me laugh my ass off.
“For our 15th Instagram Slam, we recruited @BizJordan, @JasonEnns and @MikeEscamilla, knowing they’d come back with a good one. This is the perfect mix of talkin’ shit, dusting off some old tricks and doing some things they wouldn’t normally do. Awesome to see Rooftop still flexing that front brake, Biz bringing back the half bar and some vintage mini ramp Enns making an appearance!”
When I was a kid I used to spend $15 dollars every single time I went to Taco Bell. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, those meals were delicious! But if I could have used that same money to buy a top of the line Doyle Pivitol seat I would have! If this sale hit back in my taco bell days I may not have quite the huge gut that I have today. Be smart kids, put down the taco bell and pick up one of these Doyle seats HERE while supplies last because once they’re gone they’re gone forever! And Taco Bell will always be there…..
Now click on this sick photo of Doyle whipping a huge set at Panamoka on last year’s trails trip and save it as your new desktop wallpaper.
Biz and Mastroni are in heavy film mode for Biz’s RotatoR promo that should drop any week now. Justen Soule was working up the animations for it and sent me over this cool ghost pic of the hub so you can see the eternals. Out now, get it at your local Demolition dealer or mail order shop. Be on the lookout for the promo too!
Chris Doyle X Anthem seats are now on sale for a cool $14.99 + free shipping. Any of you guys want to support one of the best dirt jumpers in the world and get a good deal on a Pivotal seat at the same time, this is your chance. Get at em’ HERE while supplies last, they’re already going quick. *Free shipping deal only lasts till Oct. 31st
The next Markit Zero premier is going down this Saturday at the Clairemont skatepark. There’s a jam going down first with cash prizes so you seriously don’t want to miss out on this one. Click on the post to get all the details, see you there!
The Albion is doing a cool new online section called Inventory (everything to do with parts) and one of their first features is on the history of our Dumbchuck pegs. Check out the full feature HERE.
“We really just wanted to produce a park peg to help have bikes legal or have less hassle at cement skateparks where bikes/ pegs were illegal. At the time we weren’t thinking the plastic pegs would be used 100% for street, we just knew they couldn’t damage the parks as much and no one would be able to complain about them. A few years later, our team guys noticed how good they grind on everything on street with the addition of just a bit of wax.”
Our dudes, Hucker and D. Enarson destroyed Texas!! Not only did they place top 3 at the Texas Toast contest (Dennis first in street and 2nd in dirt, Hucker got 3rd in dirt), they also won Nora Cup awards. Dennis won #1 ramp rider and Hucker took home #1 dirt jumper for 2013 Huge congrats to our dudes, so stoked for them. Dennis pic above from Vitalbmx.com.
Chris Doyle, Mike Hucker Clark and Dennis Enarson all made it to Dirt Finals this year at Dew Tour San Francisco which means the obviously murdered it in Semis. Unfortunately Dennis hurt his turf toe again and couldn’t ride in finals. He’s been healing up though and I just saw him shredding at Toast so he must be feeling better. Doyle and Hucker both were healthy for finals and completely shut it down with signature Doyle inverts and simply mental cliffhanger flips from Hucker. The crazy level of riding mixed with the most “unique” locals from planet earth made for one hell of a dirt final and one rad gallery here. Click on the post to check it out.
Our good homie and Demo shredder, Josh Perry, sent through an awesome update on what he has been up to lately, which from the sounds of it is a whole hell of a lot! Here is what he had to say.
“Been on the road every weekend doing shows for Creative Sports for Walmarts and festivals. Been to North East Maine, Northern Michigan, Oklahoma, as well as NH and Mass. About to head out to Indiana this weekend for some more. Also went to Tennessee for a halftime show! I got a chance to take a helicopter ride for the first time and that was so sick! Went golfing for the first time as well and that was pretty funny. When I am home I been riding the Animal House and Jay-Cee park and had a chance to ride some local guys back yard dirt jumps and that was a blast.” – Josh
Be sure to keep and eye out for Josh shredding parks trails or shows in a town near you! And if you are lucky enough to run into him be sure to stop him and say whats up, he’s one of the raddest dudes out there!
Diversity BMX is a rad website based in Australia that recently did a little interview with the Australia ping pong national champion and Demolition Parts Destroyer, Dave Dillewaard. Check it out HERE.
I originally saw this HUGE (8′?) no-hander of Tyler up on the @vitalbmx Instagram and went to their site to see the big version. The f-n kid can ride everything, can’t wait to see what he comes through for the contest!
Aaron Smith got his VX game goin on and clocked some solid footage of himself and some homies.
“Darryl Gave me his VX in the spring, so I’ve been having fun figuring everything out.” -Aaron Smith”
Just saw that Hucker has up a new bike check up at RIDEbmx. Be sure to see what makes Hucker Hucker. Stoked to see him on our new RotatoR freecoaster hub now too. Can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve with that thing.
Colorado is a land of amazing skateparks, forgotten street, and unforgettably interesting people so it was easy to see why a road trip through the Rockies was long overdue for Demolition Parts. Because this land is so unique we decided to put together a crew of our own weirdos that happen to love riding parks, street and interacting with as many locals as possible. The crew fit in perfectly in Colorado and wasted no time shredding everything in site, the results of which is this awesome Mountain Mission edit put together by our very own filming creeper, MIke Mastroni. Enjoy this edit, get stoked and then go shred!!
Filmed & Edited by Mike Mastroni
Music: April Wine – “Bad Side Of The Moon”
Must’ve been all that clean air and juice stops in Colorado, cause Aaron went absolutely nuts there. He came back with a stack of amazing clips/ pics from the trip. This big hanger was just one of many. His Live Free Or Die Pivotal seat just arrived in time for this new RIDEbmx print ad to drop too. Click image to view the full ad. Pic by J.Cobbs.
RIDEbmx/ Ryan Fudger just put up some awesome pics of the Dew Tour dirt finals and results. Hucker got 7th and Doyle scored 9th place. Both rode amazing and by the pics (click above for gallery), you can tell they went all in.
Dew Tour is in full swing in San Francisco and the Demolition crew is holding it down in all the BMX events. Doyle, Enarson, Lodes and Clark are all out here absolutely killing it. Connor was getting so tech in street he had everyone talking. Doyle and Hucker both made finals in dirt and Enarson in street so its about to get real interesting in the next couple days. It’s also awesome to see all the guys kill it on trips and in videos and then come onto the contest scene and just destroy it equally as hard. Demo is killing it at Dew Tour!
Our all new Aaron Smith’s Live Free Or Die Pivotal seat and Ryan “Biz” Jordan’s RotatoR freecoaster hub just arrived. Get at em’ while supplies last. Good amount of them are already going out. Shops should have them in stock 3-5 business days. Click image to go BIG!
It’s the last day of the Demolition/QBP Northwest trails trip and it has been a doozy to say the least! The guys have been riding so much it’s hard to grasp all the rad shit that went down the last few days. With body’s beat from all the trail sessions the crew decided to use the last day of the trip to slow down, take it easy and take in some sights around beautiful San Francisco. We started off the day driving over the new Bay Bridge, which is rad. Next we stopped at Treasure Island to take in a nice view of the city and then cruised the BMXs over the Golden Gate Bridge to terrorize tourists and toss things off the bridge. We then ended the fun over at Philz Coffee so they guys could get their first taste of the best coffee on earth. A great day to end a great trip. Thanks so much to the crew for all the good times and to everyone at all the trails and all the shop stops that helped make this trip such an amazing one!! Until next time…
Ronnie checking in here, the last two days of the trip have been a blast! The trails and the shops were both amazing. The first set of trails we went to were our homie Aaron Days trails. The jumps were so fun and the dirt was perfect. Everyone was killing it, including the locals. Check out some of the pictures, Im sure TM Cobbs missed a couple but we got a good update for you guys. Just kidding JOE! The second set of jumps we hit were the Burbons trails. Everyone killed it there as well we it was a really cool vibe. Later on that day we hit Cycle Path Bike Shop in Hayward. They had some ramps and stuff for everyone to ride and we even okay with us climbing up on the roof and setting up a little euro gap. That was pretty spare of the moment and crazy. Nothing but good times on this trip and awesome shops. Support your local bike shops and keep shredding! Thanks for everything guys.
Our French rider, Max Terrasson, just came through with some fire on his Summer 2013 edit. Click play and watch Max kill it with some solid-tech lines at Grammont skatepark. Video by Alexandre Navarre.
For all those that haven’t seen the latest issue of DIG with Tyler, you’re missing out. Tyler went bananas for his interview and the pics came out amazing. DIG just put up their Behind the Scenes with Tyler with this cool lil’ video and some new pics HERE.
Day 5 was our last day in Seattle and the weather allowed for yet another trail session, this time at our good friend AP’s house. The conditions were real wet so it took a bit of good ol teamwork to get the trails running and once they were running the session went nuts. After AP’s we headed south to Oregon, crashing out in Eugene. Day 6 brought us to Klammath Falls where we had a shop stop at GonRacin BMX shop. GonRacin is our boy, Josh Clemmens, shop so needless to say the turnout was awesome and everyone could not have been cooler. We chilled at the shop for a bit before heading over to the KF skatepark which is simply out of hand. The guys were loving the park so we ended the day there before getting back in the rig and pushing on to Redding. Be sure to check back for more updates from our Demo/QBP NW trails trip.
Yesterday was a good day. When we woke up to the fourth day of rain I was getting pretty doubtful if we were actually going to get to ride trails on this trails trip. But the weather broke early on in the day and the trails were in prime condition for shredding. After the first real session of the trip, the crew headed over to Go Huck Yourself to hang out with the locals and check out the shop. When we got there, the shop guys had setup an old metal quarter dead center in the middle of the shop! The session was on and the crew and the locals destroyed this little narrow quarter for a couple hours. One local especially, teamed up with Hucker and the two of them started doing tricks on the rafters behind the quarter. Check out all the photos from the day and be sure to check out Hucker and his buddy session the shop rafters. Hucker may have actually found another human equally as crazy as himself! Scary.
I can honestly say the Markit Zero video has got me the most excited I’ve been in a long time to watch a full length DVD. I’m definitely a bit biased since everyone in the video are our homies but they all absolutely kill it. This is their promo going into their big premiere at Texas Toast. Another one of those edits where you say “OH SH*T” more than once, get watchin’!
MORE RAIN!!! The day started off wet so we went to Starbucks, again, and killed time at Sears playing pong, riding bikes, and generally irritating the Sears Staff. Surprising we didn’t get the boot from Sears, unsurprisingly though it was still raining so we waiting out the rain till about 4pm. When the weather finally did break we got two good sessions in at some local parks and ending the day on the BMX.
If you are in the South Renton/Seattle area tonight around 5:30pm We will be at Go Huck Yourself at 230 Main Ave from 530-730p.Be sure to come by and say whats up! See you there.
Be sure to check back for more from the Demolition/QBP Northwest Trails Trip.
The Demolition/QBP Northwest Trails trip is underway and it’s been soggy to say the least. The plan was to drive straight from LA to Seattle and then to work our way back south over the next week, hitting trails and parks along the way. As soon as we got through Southern Oregon it starting pissing rain and has only let up once since then. We were able to fit in a park session in between rains which was awesome. Kris Fox had a massive shred boner after being stuck in the van for 20 hours and so he released his boner by cranking massive look backs and doing footjams on big scary quarters. Be sure to check back here daily for weather and riding updates from our Demolition/QBP Northwest Trails Trip.
Jason just sent this insane over vert love-seat toothpick from one of the many pool missions him and Rooftop have been on lately. Be sure to check them both out on Instagram @jasonenns and @mikeescamilla for all their recent pool adventures. Pic by Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla. Click pic to go BIG!
We made our 2014 Posterlog for Interbike and just remembered we never got it online. It features all our new products and future products too, be sure to click to view it big so you can see all the new goods.
The Demo team has linked up with QBMX for a second time, this time around for a trails trip throughout the Northwest United States! The crew is stacked and is as follows; Chris Doyle, Mike Hucker Clark, Ronnie Napolitan, Rob Wise, Kris Fox and Dave Dillewaard. We will be stoping at three shops along the way so if you are anywhere near Go Huck Yourself on Oct. 3rd , Gonracin on Oct 5th or Cyclepath on Oct 7th be sure to make it out and say whats up! Stay tuned for daily updates from the Demolition Northwest Trails Trip.
Ever wonder what Biz does on a daily basis? Zach from Vital was the one man that got Biz to share his whole day for you guys to see. Now it’s his “night life” that I’m more interested in seeing, haha.
Our friends over at Markit just reposted Rob Wise’s edit from a year ago. If you think Rob can kill it on the streets just wait till you see how he rides the parks of Utah. This edit is too good!
A-Boy showing his game face in this new edit for his new Kink Titan frame colorway. One thing about Aaron is that the kid keeps getting smoother and more dialed the more I see him ride. Click play to see for yourself.
I didn’t notice that the fifth episode of Corey Bohan’s Hanging Foul was posted a few days ago but it’s simply too good not to post so I’m posting it late just in case you missed it too. Chris Doyle, Ronnie Napolitan, Dennis Enarson and Mike Hucker Clark were all on hand repping Demo and sending themselves over the biggest trails ever. Be sure to keep an eye out for Hucker tossing a truck driver over the big set only to miss the bars completely and grab them upside down just in time to get squirrely and save his ass. A good watch for sure.
Connor, Dennis, and a few of their friends went out to Poway Skatepark yesterday for beautiful San Diego afternoon session. It was almost too nice out to waste the day shooting photos but I was able grab the camera just long enough to snap off a few photos for this rad little gallery. So check out this gallery, get stoked, and go call your buddies up for a session of your own, it’s Saturday!
You ever get yourself into that weird place of having too much fun with your friends and seeing the aftermath on a website or social media the next day and regretting being an idiot. That’s what happened during these batch of Interbike pics from RIDEBMX/ Keith Mulligan. Click HERE to witness my embarrassment with all our new products…
BMX Union came by to run through all our new goodies that we’ve been holding back showing off till the show.

180 Distribution teaser of all the new goods. All the new stuff will get love in the next day or two. Stay tuned…
Mr. Creative, Tate Roskelley, is always approaching BMX from a new direction and has been for years. When the masses of BMX are looking one way for inspiration, Tate is looking the other way. When I came across this photo that I shot of Tate three years ago, it reminded me of just that fact, Tate is always keeping it fresh. And somehow only Tate knew that the sky would be the same color as the button up shirt that he decided to wear that day, providing proof that Tate truly is creativity from head to toe.
Our shop stop at East County BMX went down yesterday and I can’t believe what an awesome turn out it was. You never really know how many people are going to show up just to hang out and ride with us so it was great to see a ton of riders come out to support East County BMX, Demolition Parts, and the BMX scene as a whole. More importantly it takes a strong shop and a strong BMX scene to have a shop stop as fun and as successful as yesterday’s so we would like to give HUGE HUGE thanks to East County BMX and all the locals that made it out to show their support and make it such a rad day. Be sure to click on the post and check out the gallery from our shop stop and East County BMX!
Just saw on the RIDEbmx site the full story about one of Christian’s insane bangers (for the Markit Zero video) he tried to get in Moscow. Click more for the full story.
Our homies over at Markit have been posting a cool feature lately called washed up Wednesdays where they re-post an old ad or magazine photo or another version/angle of a photo that you may have already seen. This week’s Washed Up Wednesday is of Dennis Enarson and his ride cover. This photo made for one of the best Ride covers ever in my opinion and was shot by Ride photographer extraordinaire, Ryan Fudger, while on a Haro Bikes trip in Japan. Be sure to keep an eye our for the clip in Markit’s upcoming DVD, Markit ZERO.
Dillsy and BIZ met up the other day at Heath Pinter’s house for a quick trail session. Although this time Biz kept the bike on the rack and pulled out the camera instead. Dillsy is always on point at the trails and since BIZ is quite handy with a camera, the two came away from the session with a couple of rad photos for you guys to check out. Click on the post to have a look at the other two photos these two came away with from the session.
This months RIDEbmx X Demolition ad goes to none other than Ryan “Biz” Jordan for his all new Rotator (spelled the same backwards and forwards) freecoaster hub. Joey Cobbs (TM/ Staff Photographer) and Biz came through last minute on this picture a day before the ad deadline. For those that don’t see what’s going on in the pic, Biz 180′d up the wing to backwards bars off the wing. All while riding on that rubber bounce material that are at most playgrounds these days too. The Rotator hub will be out at the end of Sept. In the meantime, be on the lookout for a Biz and friends promo for the hub. Click image to go big!
BMXunion has an awesome article about our boy Hucker and his worldly travels the last few years. If you don’t already know, Hucker travels the world almost year round and is always up to something wild. Weather its Helicopters in New Zealand or riding jetskis naked in France, Hucker is a free spirit and makes himself at home wherever he is. So make sure to click over to BMXunion and check out this awesome Through The Lens feature with Mike Hucker Clark. Photos and article by Jeremy Pavia.
George Marshall shot some rad pics of this years top dogs at Vans’ Kill The Line in Peynier France. Hucker ended up taking home the win and did some crazy sh.. as usual. Is there anyone else in BMX that has as much fun as Hucker during a contest? Check out the full gallery here as well as Hucker’s mini interview up at Red Bull.
Enarson, Lodes, Enns, Dillewaard, Clark, Rigal, Hosselton will be at EAST COUNTY BMX in Santee, CA this Sunday at 3PM
Be there or be square!!!
If you’ve seen Demolition last full length DVD, Last Chance, then you may remember this huge gap that Dennis tailwhipped for his section in the video. We made a poster of this whip using a single shot photo from another angle but I also set up this camera for a sequence and had Rob Wise man the shutter. No matter what angle you look at this things it’s huge but I always thought this was a pretty cool perspective and because it never ended up getting used for anything why not post it online for you guys to take a look at?! Better late than never…
Volume just put up a full bike check of Jason Enns’ new bike/ signature Volume Cerberus frame. Be sure to check out what Demolition Parts Enns is rocking these days HERE.
The other day while shooting Kris Fox’s bike check, we also shot this rad drifting no hander into the back quarter. Keep in mind he was pedaling 100 miles an hour as usual at the jump and then pedaled as fast as he can right after he landed towards the hip. I don’t know if he drinks all these energy drinks or not but he must be hopped up on something with all that energy of his. Watching Kris ride is seriously amazing, I’ve never seen someone go so damn fast! After the jump is Kris’ new SE Gaudium bike video also. There you can see he goes big, fast and all with amazing style. Click image to go BIG!
The Demolition team is headed to San Diego and we will be at East County BMX on Sunday September 15th at 3pm. We are going to be hanging, riding, eating, drinking, tossing products and signing posters so be sure not to miss out on the good time that are sure to be had! See you then!
Corey Bohan’s latest episode of Hanging Foul takes him to the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach where he watching the train wreck on the beach and sessions a replica of the Marseille Bowl with our very own Dennis Enarson. Well Corey sessions the bowl with a bunch of sick pros but he says some nice things about our boy Dennis and has some sweet clips of DenDen in there which is why I posted this video and which is why you are hitting play now! Enjoy.
Connor and I shot this photo last year during an awesome backyard session and our friend Brian’s house in the easy bay of San Francisco. We originally shot this photo to be a part of an ID that Connor and I were working on but somehow the project fell through the cracks and never came to be. But the photos we shot still exist and here is one of the ones I like most. I love the vibe that backyard ramps have, the way they are just barely fit into the extra space in someone’s life and then are able to provide so much enjoyment, there’s definitely nothing quite like a backyard ramp.
Proud to announce that Drew Hosselton scored this months RIDEbmx cover. Drew also has an interview in the same issue and I for one cannot wait to see everything he’s done for it. Knowing Drew, you know it’s gonna be full of original stuff we haven’t seen before and during 110 degree Arizona heat. Well deserved and couldn’t be more stoked him. Click image for the full cover.
