In case you’ve forgotten, Greg Flag has some serious pop. Here he is with a quick barspin on the bank of a dumpster shot by Dave Scott for the Ride BMX subscription page. Hit them up to get some nice printed material in your hands and get a pair of our sunglasses as well. Summer’s coming (eventually)!
It’s never been a difficult thing for Silva to stack clips and over the course of last year he did exactly that and then some. Aside from his entire DVD section and his recent Ten Pack edit, Silva put together this dope freecoaster edit and hooked up with Ride BMX to feature it on their site along with an interview. Head over to the Ride site to check out the whole interview and watch out for more from Silva soon. We’ll keep you posted on the freecoaster development as well, good things take time!
Chris Silva was interview as part of Ride BMX‘s ‘Friday Interview’ among a stack of other awesome riders yesterday. They were all asked the same question: ‘Why’s your bike like that?’ This is something very near and dear to Silva’s heart, as many will know, and he gave a pretty insightful answer, stating, among other things that “a lot of riders seem to just chase the same tricks on street while all riding the exact same bike setups.” Read what else Silva had to say here on the Ride site.

Our Greek connection, John Manaras, just sent over this link to a trailer for Bogiatiland’s new full-length DVD called ‘Forget About It.’ He has some great clips in it along with the rest of his crew (riding starts at around 2:00) so check it out and stay tuned to see his full part soon!
We started hooking up our west coast flow dude and all around shredder, Amos Franke, with some goods late last year and since then he’s been stacking clips and shooting photos like mad. He got together with Zach Rampen and they whipped up this great edit as a MacNeil/Embassy collab. Tons of solid street and park clips in this one, keep an eye on this dude!

We’re real psyched to announce that one of our good friends and one helluva rider, Chijioke Okafo, is now part of the MacNeil crew! Chi has been a long-time friend of everyone in the company for years now and has been killing it forever. On top of that, Chi and Silva are a dynamic duo when it comes to filming and riding and he’s real tight with the rest of the team. Chijioke is also going to be the first ‘full-factory’ team rider and built up this new bright red Calico V2 kit to get rolling. Expect to see a lot more from Chi as the year progresses including a proper ‘welcome to the team’ and be sure to check out some more photos of his fresh new whip after the jump. Welcome to the family, bud!
