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!

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. We showed off all 3 of our new signature stems, new Lodes Pivotal seat, smoke color Trooper pedals, Dennis Enarson 24mm Rig crank, Biz’s Rotator freecoaster, Dennis Enarson 9″ Rig bar, all new Chris Doyle Maiden fork and more… Click HERE to see them all in their glory.
Jason Enns breaks down some of the features on the all new RotatoR freecoaster hub that’s due out end of Sept.
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.
Our very own Joey Cobbs (Demolition Team Manager) has up a really cool interview up at BMX Union. He talks about coming up riding and in the industry and everything else in-between. If you love photography and have some questions about shooting in the bmx industry, this interview might be for you. He touches on a bunch of different areas of photography and the business. He also has up a really cool photo gallery up on their site too.
So the Demolition in Colorado trip has come to an end and was total blast! It has actually been a couple days since we’ve got home but since the drive from Denver to LA is just shy of 20 hours I had to take a day off to recover from the mission. Lots of riding and lots of driving the last couple days of the trip, be sure to click on the post to check out the gallery from our last few days on the road while on Demolition in Colorado.
Big thanks goes out to crew and to everyone that helped us along the way to make this trip a successful and memorable one!
The Crooked World just put out Josh Perry and Nick Digeroloma’s section from the latest HUNT project. This edit is ridiculous so be sure to make some time, stop what your doing, and watch this ramp insanity.
Just saw on the Premium site that Connor Lodes built up a new whip. See that new Demolition sample stem? More to come…
We haven’t had up a solid bike check of one of our riders in a bit and figured a good way to start back up would be of our good bud, Kris Fox. Click more to view all the images and read what makes him go so damn fast…
Day started off just a well as all the others until we all found out that Jason and Biz’s room was infested with bed bugs and had to change rooms in the middle of the night. Once we all heard that we all began to itch and get bummed so we packed up our gear, rode street all day in Colorado Springs and headed back up north to Denver for the last two days of the trip. Once clear of the insect motel we had an action packed day of spot searching and street riding. Now we’re back up in Denver and eager to keep the momentum going. Check back later for more updates from Demolition in Colorado.
And if you have instagram, follow our trip at #DemolitionMTNmission
So stoked to see anything new from Biz, he’s not one to make an edit every week and saves his best moves for edits like this one. He’s got some heavy moves in this one too, that ender is definitely a do or die. Watch for yourself…
Day 6 began by heading south out of Denver and into Colorado Springs for a shop stop at Pedal Action BMX. BMX specific shops are getting more and more popular and it couldn’t be more positive for BMX which is why it means so much to us to get to come out and hang with everyone from the shop and all the locals that go to the shop to keep their rides rolling. After the shop stop we rolled over to the local park with everyone, which by the way is one of the most amazing parks any of us have ever seen! The park was jammed with people so we took a few runs and moved on to shred some local street. Aboy and Tate both got some solid clips and we wrapped up the day spot searching for some more riding tomorrow! Don’t forget to come back to the site and check for some more updates from Demolition in Colorado. Click on the post and check out the rest of the photos from the day.
Yesterday the Demolition in Colorado crew made a shop stop over at PUSHER BMX. PUSHER has been around since I can remember, when I first heard of PUSHER it was a crazy out of hand BMX zine but now it is a BMX specific bike shop in Denver CO. Clay Brown started the zine in the 90′s and heads the shop now. Its awesome that places like PUSHER still hold it down and BMX and we were honored to get the invite to come by and session with all the locals. There were rails, ledges, hotdogs, and burgers, so of course the were only good times at PUSHER yesterday. Click on the post to check out all the photos from our stop over at PUSHER.
Day 4 started us at an awesome skate plaza out in the middle of the Colorado countryside. The guys clipped up a bit, we met up with Demolition homie Greg Sumida and then took off to ride some ditches and whatever other spots we came across. Greg got loose across a water gap and scared everyone half to death but he was fine, just a pair of soggy shoes. We ended day 4 with one of the most important discoveries of the trip, TWIN PEAKS. ” I don’t even know that Hooters is in business anymore….” -Jason Enns.
We got up early on day 5, shredded more ditches, and then headed to downtown Denver for some street setups. After Aboy and Biz both clipped up on the streets we cruised over to PUSHER BMX for an awesome shop stop. After the shop stop we wrapped up the day with another late night session over at Twin Peaks. Check out the photos from the last two days and be sure to check back tomorrow for more updates from Demolition in Colorado.
Just watched the official Red Bull version of the Dreamline contest that just happened. Red Bull’s version is definitely one of the best filmed that I’ve seen yet too. So f-n crazy to see how big those jumps really are!
When Joey (Cobbs) first showed me all the pics from the Markit BCN trip, I couldn’t believe how many solid and insane pics he came back with of Rob Wise. Rob has been going all in for his Markit part and seeing the pics was proof in the pudding. This ad was just one of the solid pics Joey had of Rob that we used for the latest Albion mags that features Rob’s Elite fork. Click pic to view the whole ad.
Check out this awesome edit that our Japanese rider, Akira Sakata, put together for the opening of his new shop, Flourish BMX Shop. It features a park session with Akira and some of the Flourish family and also gives a great look inside the new shop. Head over to the Flourish blog to stay up to date on everything Akira has going on at the shop.
Day 3 definitely brought more action into the trip, we finally made it to Colorado and because we had been stuck in the van for so long we decided on a park day and hit up three different parks in Northern Colorado. The agenda for the day was to session as much as possible and stay out of the van as much as possible and thats exactly what we did. Jason got the OK from his knee doc to ride just before coming on the trip so its been awesome to seem him so stoked to ride. These guys are always making bets for Hooters dinner and yesterday Tate was the sucker, he bet Jason 10 wings he couldn’t ride across the spine, lost. Bet Jason a pitcher of beer that he couldn’t over-tooth the spine first try, lost. Then Tate bet Biz that he wouldn’t pull his clip the very next try and lost a half pitcher of beer in the process. Needless to say Tate’s per diem is whipped out on Day 3 and the fun has just begun. Click on the post to check out all the photos from our park day and stay tuned for more updates from Demolition in Colorado.
As long as I’ve known Connor, he’s wore a helmet due to a head injury that happened when he was just a lil’ guy coming up. That was way before helmets became “the fashion” and definitely wasn’t the cool thing to wear at the time. Got a ton of respect for him that he stuck it out and did’t care what others thought. This lil’ edit for Bell helmets is to show off their Certified Helmet with Connor and his dad.
So we’ve been on the road to Colorado for the last two day and have yet to make it to Colorado. Even though we’ve spent most of the last two days on the road we’ve been keeping ourselves entertained. We’ve sessioned Tate’s pong table, had a few brews with good friends in Salt Lake City, watched a lady smoke meth in her car at a red light and all while we getting a constant gaseous bombardment from Biz’s ass, which has been especially difficult being locked in the rig. Oh ya and when Biz farts and we’re all dying from Biz’s ass smell, he tries to mask the smell by lighting his leg hair on fire… As for day two, it has taken us the down the long and lonely road through Wyoming and into Cheyenne. And in regards to riding there hasn’t been much more than a few tumble weeds, tweakers, cowboys and truck stops to look at. Stay tuned for more and click on the post to check out our gallery from the first two days on the road.
The guys headed up to Colorado to ride, film and shoot some pics are also going to visit Pusher and Pedal Action BMX shops (Friday and Saturday) to bbq, hang out and ride with the locals. If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by to get in on the free food, giveaways and pound a few cold ones with the crew. All the info is above in the flyer. If you have any further questions, please contact each shop listed. Click flyer to go BIG. See ya’ soon!
Kink just released the entire Squash It DVD online for your viewing pleasure. In case you haven’t seen this yet, Doyle and Aaron both came through with amazing sections. Watch Doyle’s part above and Aaron’s after the jump.
Brendan Jones just hit the last leg of his US solo tour and lucky for me it was in good ol’ San Diego! Brendan has been in the western states for a few weeks now, he began in the INLAND EMPIRE, made his way to our Demo Week at Woodward West, then straight onto a road trip riding concrete and trails clear all the way to Northern Washington! Well now he’s wrapping it up in SD an he said he’s beat!! But he was able to muster the energy for one last session, especially at the Markit ramps! I’ve only gotten to ride with Brendan a few times but I’ve noticed he wastes no time trying big scary shit and usually rolls and aways makes it look good in the process. Check out the above photo, download it for your new desktop, and then click on the post and check out another sick photo of Brendan during his session at the Markit ramps. Big thanks to Kenny, Dennis and the whole fam for letting us ride the ramps, they are soooo fun!
We would like to Welcome Marcel Profittlich to the Demolition International Team. He will be representing Demolition in Germany thanks to our German distributor, La Finca Distribution. Marcel took it to the streets and local parks to put together this well rounded Welcome edit, that shows he can shred just about everything. Nice intro too, picking the Demolition goods over the girl! Check it out and look for a lot more from Marcel in the future.
Chris Doyle 3 inverts never gets old, I can watch him do these all day long. In typical Doyle fashion he can do them on any jump, big or small. He’s at the Mongoose Jam at Woodward East and making it look easy as usual. Thanks to Woodward Camp for sending these over. Photo by: Mike Bennett. Click more to see the fisheye version and click image to go BIG.

We’re back with another Ground Recon Shop Spotlight. This time we’re hitting up our man Jairo who owns and operates Independent BMX Shop in sunny Los Angeles, CA. Independent BMX is a perfect example of local guys taking their passion and turning it into something positive for the community. While they work on, sell, and repair different types of bicycles, their main focus is BMX. The shop was started as a BMX shop and focuses on that passion everyday. While most bike shops have windows plastered with gajillion dollar road or mountain bike company locals, they chose to cover theirs with a locally based BMX company if that tells you anything. So click more and check out the story behind Independent BMX Shop…
