It’s no secret that Chris Silva is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to riding, but this edit from 2009 that he recently re-posted is a great reminder of how he can absolutely murder any ramp setup he rides. This is from a few sessions at the now defunct Warehouse indoor park in Toronto. Even by today’s standards, this edit is pretty crazy. Press play!
Here’s another random photo from our Young Gun Jack Leonard with a nollie barspin captured by two very close angles. Have a great Black Friday and don’t get too buck in the stores today.
Our good friend Brad Hill has a selection of west coast BMX photos up on the ESPN/X-Games website right now, and lo and behold Taylor and Sam are featured in it. Check it out here for all the photos and Brad’s perspective as a newcomer to Vancouver, and you can check out his new portfolio site here for even more work from him.
The last time George Bolter checked in with us he was crammed into a small hotel room in Bethlehem, PA with four of his homies and riding trails every day. He just sent through this update to let us know how the remainder of the trip went down…
“After spending almost a month crammed in a tiny hotel room in Bethlehem we decided it was best to move on and see some more of the east coast before making the trip out to Pittsburgh. We rented a 12 seater van, lost the back seats and hit the road covering over 1400 miles, seeing and riding heaps of rad stuff and meeting heaps of rad people. Here’s a bunch of photos from the travels, enjoy!
Check out a bunch of photos after the jump with notes from George.
Jack Leonard, our AM team rider with two first names, comes through with a big gap to wallride. Look for his crew’s DWOK mixtape out…eventually.
The Albion just posted a digital copy of their 13th issue that was published earlier this year, and it contains a great interview with Jeff Kocsis. Jeff talks about the importance of style in his riding, his influences and Jersey roots, and more. Check it out above on page 70, or you can digitally flip through the article directly here.
Jeff and Silva flew out to Vancouver and met up with Taylor Elvy back in August for an Animal Bikes trip. They had a jam at the Chuck Bailey skatepark, cruised some streets, and even hit a swimming hole. Check out this video of their time out there. Sam Lowe even sneaks a clip in too.
Back in August Jeff visited BC for the first time, and his whole trip he was waiting to ride some historic Vancouver parks and snake runs, so on his last day we made it happen. He was quickly riding the place like he was a local and blasting tables and 270s all over the place. We thought we would get inside Jeff’s head a bit more and did some word association with him. Check it out after the jump, along with some more photos shot by Zach Rampen.
Taylor going down with the ship, and with the rail/ledge feeble.
When the crew are out and about and riding in Vancouver you can always count on Dave Scott being around to shoot a photo. He has gotten a number of shots with a lot of our team dudes, and lately he has been uploading some to his website. You can check out a few more after the jump, and visit his Open Liquor site for a bunch more.
Practice has already been popping off from the first day of Dew Tour practice and a couple videos are starting to circulate. Check out these two quick edits from RideBMX and The Come Up. How sick is Jeff’s vertical pole jam above at 2:08? Don’t forget that the contest will be live streamed online this weekend. More info here.
