I know this isn’t directly related to Demolition or BMX too much but since it has Mike ‘Rooftop’ Escamilla and Jason Enns in it, we couldn’t resist. When Mike tells you about his future projects, you usually just listen and nod. Imagine hearing about this one, it sounded absolutely nuts when he first told me about it. Now that I see it, I can’t believe how rad it came out. It seriously looks like a professional commercial you’d see during primetime TV. Glenn Milligan (filmer/ editor) definitely got some points on making this one look as rad as it did. Now I need to get me one of those Lowepro cases, especially if that camera in the case didn’t break after all that…
Man what a way to wake up to a Monday huh? HUH!?!? Drew’s riding is always so full of fun and creativity it never fails to get me stoked on riding and I can’t wait till the next session. This section is filled with so many interesting setups and combined with Drew’s ability to think up equally interesting moves for those setups, this section is really not one to missed. Bobby Kanode is the man behind the lens of Mediocre at Best and is responsible for the creation of the DVD as well as for putting Drew’s section online for all of us to enjoy! Now everybody say thank you to Bobby…. THANK YOU BOBBY!
So stoked for the champ! Ha! Although he would hate being called that, what Dennis isn’t hating is life right now! First winning street style in Portland, then winning street yesterday in Brooklyn and then taking home second today in street style, Dennis is straight killing it right now. Check out this highlight reel from yesterdays street finals and then click on the post to take a look at Dennis’ street style run that landed him second today.
Also a huge congratulations goes out to Tyler Fernengel for taking home fourth in today’s street style comp. So sick!! READ MORE
I’ve been waiting for this one to drop, ever since I saw that photo of Hucker doing a massive 20′ air from his Instagram. Usually things don’t look as crazy in video but this throws that out, it’s f-n nuts. Rad to see Kris Fox there too, which he had to jet off from our Tea and Biscuits tour. Shout out to Red Bull for putting on these rad contests on.
Just peeped the new RIDEbmx with our new print ad of Dennis doing this insane 180 fakie to oppo whip and figured we’d show it off online. Right when you thought you’ve seen it all, Dennis comes out swinging with another insane move. If you have any questions about Dennis’ RIG line, go to his interview we posted a bit ago about what went into it all here >>. Check out the full specs/ details on each of the product pages here: Rig Bar / Rig Tire / Rig Crank. Photo by J.Cobbs. Check out the full ad by clicking the top photo or read more. READ MORE
Connor Lodes was invited on our big Tea And Biscuits 2 UK tour and as you might have noticed, he went MIA throughout the whole trip. We never really got into it with him or told what exactly happened till now. We sat down with Connor to get the whole lowdown and hear what the hell happened. Click more to read the whole story.

Phoenix’s BMX creativity ambassador, Drew Hosselton, is right in the midst of an overseas adventure and sent in this update talking a bit about his trip so far. Always good to see what Drew is getting into. Be sure to click on the post and check out a few of Drew’s photos from his trip and big thanks to Bertie Buck for shooting this sick pocket wall-ride photo of our boy blue during his trip, you know I meant our boy Drew!
“After the Volume/Demolition Tea and Biscuits Tour wrapped up a week or two ago, I stayed behind in England for a couple extra weeks to travel around with some friends I knew over here. I pretty much went from the bus we had for the tour straight into my buddy Ben’s car and headed towards Amsterdam. We ended up staying in some urban campground which sounded kind of sketchy initially but ended up being pretty sweet. It was super cheap, clean, and had all the essentials including good internet. After being on a riding trip for nearly two weeks, chilling was top priority so we hit up a number of Amsterdam’s finest coffee shops and really soaked in the “culture” if you know what I mean. We did get out of the coffee shop haze from time to time and got some riding in. We stumbled across a really cool vert ramp under a bridge and it ended up being one of the funnest sessions I have had so far, just pumping around on some old ass vert ramp. After Amsterdam I went back to Bournemouth, UK to chill with some friends. It was a solid week, pretty much just chilled, rode a bit, and got a sick new tattoo! I arrived in London yesterday, out of gas and out of cash I get to chill out and explore the city for a couple of days before its time to head back to the armpit of the US that is Arizona.” – DH
The people over at Dew Tour met up with Dennis, Chad and friends to session some street in sunny San Diego to help promote the upcoming Dew Tour stop in Brooklyn this weekend. There will be a good number of Demolition shredders in attendance shredding this weekend so be sure to keep an eye out for that, get stoked and go ride!!
The new DIG site just launched and it is lookin better than ever. Couldn’t be more stoked to have more options in BMX media and actually have some original content online. Vince Perraud travelled to California earlier this year to get some amazing shots for the new DIG site and saw these two of Dennis and Christian while he was in SD. Click more to see the Dennis shot.
“Earlier this year I travelled to California with Matthias Dandois and Maxime Charveron, as part of French mobile phone provider Sosh’s ‘Couchriding’ trip. With a massive crew of two riders, two skaters, one snowboarder, two photographers, three filmers, assistants and journalists, it was hardly your typical BMX trip, but it turned out to be an insane experience. Here’s a selection of mostly unseen rider related shots from what turned into an epic photographic journey.” – Vince Perraud READ MORE
