Recently an awesome request came up to provide a photo that would be made into a Demolition full window print for the Southern California, BMXcentric bike shop, Epic Ride Shop. Since I didn’t have a photo already shot that fit the bill just right I met up with Demolition Style Cat, Kris Fox, to shoot something for the window print. Aussie Demolition rider, Boyd Hilder, was in town with good friend Jason Watts so we all met up to try and search out the perfect spot to shoot this window photo. After cruising around some LA ditches for a while we noticed the influx of homeless complexes that dot the ditch scene and because of that the lack of any boards, carpets, or useful water bridging trash that you might normally find in any urban ditch. So after coming up empty handed in the ditches and it being a weekday we decided to go to familiar territory in the form of Ben Snowden’s backyard ramps. We had a fun resi session, I climbed high up into a treetop perch, we shot a rad photo for the window and the mission was a success. Click on the post to check out all the photos from our day and to also see this huge flair that Boyd is blasting in the photo above.
Demolition’s righteous rasta man, Russ Barone, showed fellow Cult teammate, Trey Jones, and Demolition Alumni, Garrett Byrnes, around Long Island for good old BMX fun. The crew hits dirt, street, transition, they hit all! So no matter what your thing is in BMX you will find what you like in this edit, good vibes, good spots, good riding, awesome edit.
To say Kris Fox is having an awesome year would be a huge understatement, throw in a couple of overwhelmingly positive descriptive words and a couple of expletives out of excitement and then you might be in the ballpark of describing the kind of year Kris has been having. Between traveling to the far corners of the globe to ride, getting the invite to the biggest contests of the year, to rubbing elbows on trips with the legends of the sport, Kris has been non-stop so when I had the chance to ask his a few questions about all this I jumped on it. Click on the post to check what Kris had to say and while your at it be sure to click through some photos from Kris’ year.
Well not literally actually hanging out with the magazine, not sure if that’s possible. But when you have three veteran Demolition team members, Christian Rigal, Connor Lodes and Ryan BIZ Jordan, linking up with Ride’s Associate Editor, Ryan Fudger, to work on some stuff for the mag you get excited! And believe me the day did not disappoint! It always amazing me the setups these guys find on the streets and the things they’re able to make happen on them. But because I don’t want to spoil what they were up to in hopes that we will soon be seeing everything print, I kept behind the scenes and shot photos of the guys hanging out between clips, which with this crew is hardly a dull moment. check out our photos from the day and then go get one more session in before the weekend ends!
When I was a kid I used to dream of new parts coming out and what the hottest thing was at that time was. I feel like Dennis’ Rig line is that for me now. I’m pumped on every item (Rig Bar / Rig Tire / Rig Crank) and how f-n strong/ durable they are. That little kid in me was stoked to see this photo that J.Cobbs shot of all the parts together. Hit the photo to go BIG! While you’re at it, check out Dennis’ last interview about the whole line here>>
Wow, this episode of Raditudes shows just how much Hucker can huck himself! The boys head over the pond to Redbull’s Quarter Master Contest, where we get to watch Hucker enter the elite group of riders that have blasted their BMX’s over 20 feet out of a quarter. This is Hucker at his finest!
Connor Lodes, Mike Gray and Josh Clemens all are going to be at Hollenbeck Skatepark in Los Angeles, this Saturday, for VitalBMX’s Game of BIKE and if your lucky enough to be in the area, your not going to want to miss the madness. Ever imagine what a game of BIKE would look like between your favorite street pros in the game? Well imagine no longer, just get over to Hollenbeck Skatepark in LA at noon or if your not able to make it in person, head over to VitalBMX.com at noon on Saturday where you can watch the contest live.
Pegs have become synonymous with Rigal’s riding. Every web edit and DVD section he’s put together in the last few years has pushed the four peg game to places no one else has. I would bet that if you asked any rider out there what their most memorable clip of Christian is that every response given would be a clip of him using one, two, three or four of his pegs in some new Christian kind of way. What might not come immediately to mind, unless you’ve followed Christian’s riding from the beginning, is that he can do crazy shit on anything he wants. Ramps, trails, street and I’m sure flatland too if he wanted. Often times the stuff that he is doing without pegs is just as crazy and unique as his grind game, so we went out riding with Christian and put together this series of photos of him out there killing it without the use of his grinders.
