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.

The Pala Band of Mission Indians had the brilliant idea of building a badass skatepark on their land and giving BMXers a few sessions a week to enjoy it. Matt Cordova and Nathan Sykes take advantage of Pala’s good decisions and made the trek south to visits the Rez and take part in some high air activities. And to our enjoyment Nathan shot this ridiculously perfect tuck no hander of Matt out of one of the more technical pocket quarters in the park. Check out this photo big and save it as your new wallpaper!
