Christian just sent over this lil’ update from Malaysia:
I got the opportunity to come out to Malaysia and film with my Haro homies for a week and it’s been amazing! Endless laughs and good times have been had and I couldn’t be any happier that I came along! My Summer has been non stop but trips like this give my body time to heal and I get to have a lot of fun filming and hanging out too! It doesn’t get much better then that! Photo by Matthias Dandois
Connor’s DITL is actually pretty much point on to what he does daily. I know some guys try and add in stuff to make it a bit more entraining for the edit but Connor keeps it real with working on his whip, killing local parts, eating Mexican food and ending the day off with some frisbee gold. What a day! Credit: Doeby
Just got a cool update from our boy, Aaron Smith on what he’s been up to on and off his bike:
“I’ve been super busy running The Fresh Press and riding as much as possible. Things are going really well with the business though, we have a ton of regulars already and new customers everyday. I haven’t been traveling as much as usual, but the weather has been amazing and Boston is my favorite place to ride anyways. Lee Hopkins snapped a couple photos from the past weekend cruising the city.” – Aaron Smith Hit more to see more.
Matt Cordova is one of those riders that when you see him ride you become a fan, no matter what kind of riding you’re into, the second you see him roast a double or a quarter and do whatever trick he wants bigger and steezier than anyone else you instantly become a Matt Cordova convert. Needless to say we here at Demolition are all huge Matt Cordova fans and are beyond stoked to have him part of the family! Welcome to the team Matt!!!
Thanks to the help of our Brazilian distributor, Dream Bikes, Douglas Leite is representing Demolition in Brazil. If you haven’t seen Douguete ride, he shreds everything and is known for blasting huge airs. Best of luck to Douguete at X Games next week and be on the look out for more from him in the future!
Christian runs you through his usual routine from waking up, riding, filming, ponging, clockin’ mad footy and more. Check it out!! Filmed and edited by Zach Krejmas
Anyone that knows Aaron Smith knows that he’s a health nut and he takes his special juices and nutrition very serious. He recently let me know that he’s opening his very own juice bar up in the Boston area and since I don’t know anything about juices/ smoothies, I was interested in hearing what he’s up to and his juices in general. Pic above is of Aaron barspinning into a steep ass bank right after downing a fresh smoothie. Pic by J.Cobbs. Good read, hit read more to read/ see it all.
Tyler has been making a name for himself in a big way in BMX the past couple years and there’s no question why. Tyler is an awesome example of determination, persistence, creativity, balls of steel, and humility to all young riders in the sport. It’s all these reasons and more why we are proud to announce Tyler as the newest pro rider on Demolition!
Stoked to announce that Will Gunn will be repping us in Australia through BMX Militia. If you don’t already know too much about Will, check out his last edit that was absolutely bonkers. Will is an absolute maniac that definitely fits in with the Demolition mantra that is to ride everything and ride it well. Check out this link to see for yourself. Be sure to check out his team page w/ his bio too. Pic by: Chris Benno

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.

Sup Mates?! Ive been back in Australia for a month now enjoying the summer and missing the horrible cali winter! Instead of usually basing myself in Brisbane when i am home I have migrated to Melbourne for the summer. Its been sweet riding with new people i haven’t’t had a chance to before and taking in all the new spots and parks.
Ive been working on a Demolition edit out here that I was hoping to have done by xmas, but it hasn’t worked out too good yet! hoping to clip up more after the Xmas craziness and have it out early next year. Im filming with Cooper Brownlee, a Melb local so its good to have someone thats a keen filmer and to show me around!

Tyler recently made a quick stop off by at the office to get some new parts and shred the ramps with good buddy Brandon Dosch. As you can see, he’s doing better than expected coming back from his gnarly slam at Texas Toast. He’s kicking it at the Markit house now and I’m sure filming some nutty stuff with the crew. Expect big things to come from Tyler! Click top pic to see more.
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.

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.

Nice intro too, picking the Demolition goods over the girl! Check it out and look for a lot more from Marcel in the future.
Our Demo week has wrapped up at Woodward West and two of our favorite Demolition shredders weren’t able to make it to camp for all the fun. This time of year is always crazy for PRO riders so we hit up Aboy and Doyle to see what they’ve been getting into the last few weeks.
“What’s up guys? Doyle and I are currently on a Kink trip in Pittsburgh. We have been staying at his house and riding his local spots all week. Both of us were bummed we couldn’t make it out to Woodward west with the rest of the crew but we will be out there soon. Photos are from Boyce park shot by Tony Hamlin.” — Aboy

Most bmxers know what it’s like to get hurt or have a serious injury. Josh Perry on the other hand has had the most horrific one have done to him, which is brain surgery. If any of you that know someone that has gone through such a horrific operation knows just how gnarly it is and can be long term. Josh Perry has been there and came back 100%. You can see by this video above that his riding hasn’t been affected one bit, the dude shreds! Inspirational is an understatement.
SE Bikes and Dylan Pfohl teamed up to bring out this rad lil’ recovery video of Kris Fox. Kris has had a ton of coverage on his surgery and process of getting back but this one has him talking about the process. Hopefully you’ll get a more in-depth idea on what it’s like to get back after a big surgery after this one.
Kris came by to ride the ramps the other day to get his shred on and stretch out the ol’ limbs from being off his bike from his ACL surgery. Kris of course went mach 10 and went higher than most. If you follow him on his Instagram, I’m sure you already saw he’s been shredding everything already too. He’s back! Click pic to go BIG.
We would like to officially welcome Max Terrasson to the Demolition International Family with this Welcome to Demolition edit.

TCU just did a behind the scenes with Darryl Tocco, be sure to check it out HERE. Photo by: Jay Roe/ KINK

The guys over at SE just put up a cool injury interview with Kris. Be sure to check out what he’s been up to over on their site.

Above pic is of all the homies (Kris, Matt Cordova and Victor Salazar) from our last shoot a month ago. Get well soon buddy!
Earlier this month, Glenn from QBMX came by the warehouse to meet up with Kris for a quick interview and catch a session on the ramps.

Kris also came through with a couple clips from the warehouse ramps. Check it out and while you’re at it, give Kris(@krisfoxbmx) and QBMX(@qbmx) a follow on Twitter and Instagram.
I am so stoked to be writing that our guys won the first Woodward West BMX Shootout. I can’t thank all our guys that went on the trip and not only killed it on their bikes but acted like a true professional to all the campers and staff at camp. Each and every one of these guys went above and beyond; Mike ‘Hucker’ Clark, Ronnie Napolitan, Dave Dillewaard, Chris Doyle, Rob Wise, Tate Roskelley, Aaron Smith, Connor Lodes, Russ Barone, Gabe Brooks and Kris Fox. Big thanks also goes to Joey Cobbs (Demolition Team Manager) for managing the whole thing with all the updates, riders, camp contests, pictures and etc. Also can’t forget our main man behind the video camera, Mike Mastroni. He put out an amazing video of our week at camp. Check out our video again HERE and thanks again for voting for us. See you guys next year at camp!

Our new Canadian rider, Jordane Dubois just got on and is already making big moves with this cool lil’ interview up at The Rise site. Pic by: Mikael Cardin. “I’m living a dream right now, my new bike is just perfect, so it feels good. I’m just proud to ride for a big company like Demolition and I just wish I get the chance to do some trips and maybe meet the awesome team.”- Jordane
When we were first introduced to Jordane Dubois’ riding, (through this video) we were floored by his style and amount of bike control. We can’t thank Harley and the 10Pack guys enough for getting Jordane on our Canadian team lineup and I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot more about Jordane shortly. 10Pack just put up a bike check and a couple pics up on their site also, check em’ out HERE.
“We’re stoked to announce that Jordane Dubois is now riding for Demolition in addition to Verde! Jordane has been killing it for a while now and has been an awesome addition to our team and the dudes at Demolition are stoked on him as well. You can check out his new bike that he recently built up with a full parts list after the jump and keep an eye out for a little ‘Welcome to Demolition’ edit from Jordane soon. Big thanks to Mike Cardin for the amazing photos as usual!” TenPack Distribution. Follow Jordane on Instagram at: @jordanedubois. #greekstatue.
Seems like the contest/event of the year is Texas Toast and every pro rider is trying their best to make it out to take on the Gauntlet of Death, amazing trail section and their new regular street course. Since we’re a sponsor at this years event, we had a chance to have an obstacle that might take a few riders out. The Demolition bomb on springs will definitely make it rough to make it through for any rider. My guess is you have to haul ass over it or you might be in for. What Taj says in the above video is the best description ever regarding the contest, “I get a kick out of watching the best pro riders in the world fall on the most ridiculous obstacles I can dream up.”
It’s never a good day when we have to announce that a Demo rider is no longer going to be part of the team and today is no different. Unfortunately due to a series of recent actions and events we have decided to let Stevie Churchill go from Demolition Parts. Stevie has been on the team since he was sixteen and we truly regret the way in which our sponsorship with him has to end. We here at Demolition would like to thank Stevie for the time and effort he has given Demolition and wish him all the best in the future.
Jason sent us an update on some of the projects he’s working on and from the sounds of it he’s been on the move! Here is what he had to say.
“Yo dudes, just checking in,hope you all survived interbike. I was back in Canada for awhile this summer which was awesome. Im back home now and getting started on a split demolition edit with Biz and been filming for a Lotek edit as well. Here’s a pic from a project im working on with the one and only Mike Escamilla. hop in to slide ride to no hands-Photo by Mike Escamilla” – JE

Just got off the phone with Christian, who was filming Dennis and said “he was doing a double suicide truck and went down hard.” He was just recovering from shoulder separation and was riding here at the ramps for the first time the other day. All this on his b-day of all days too. If you know Dennis, he’ll be back up and riding before you know if.

Aus has been pretty awesome. Except the past while we’ve been fighting the weather. It’s been raining like no tomorrow. There was flash flood warnings there for a minute so that gives you an idea on how crazy the rain has been. It looks like the weather should be nice for the rest of the week so we can get back at it. – Rob
Dennis Enarson’s house, aka the Makrit house, has a photo gallery up on ESPN’s website.
