As everyone has heard by now, Kevin Kiraly will no longer be a part of the MacNeil team going into 2014. We’d like to thank Kevin for everything since he’s been a part of the brand and wish him the best of luck in the new year. Have a look again at all of his wild edits and print ads from the past bit after the jump.
More MacNeil deals around the world for the holiday season. For a limited time at Casual BMX if you buy Kevin Kiraly’s signature Varsity frame you’ll also get a copy of the Deadline DVD! Kevin holds down an amazing part in the video, and since Kevin rides for the shop they decided to put this deal together for you. Get it while it lasts here.
Will Stroud and RideBMX give you a first look at this years The Hunt contest. Kevin has a banging part that made the semi-finals and Will gives you some insight in to how seriously Kevin, and his filmer Justin Burns, take video parts and what you can look forward to when the video premieres and winners are announced on November 7th at the premiere. If you’re in the Long Beach, CA area make sure to attend as it’s open to all ages. Visit The Hunt for more info, and look for more from Kevin and The Hunt soon.
The Come Up brings you more coverage from this weekend’s Dew Tour. Jeff defines what ‘real Jersey’ is, and Nate Richter gets Kevin to drop soem tricks on demand.
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.
Dew Tour is back in San Francisco this week, and Kevin Kiraly and Jeff Kocsis both got invites to ride in this year’s event. We are pumped for both of our dudes to be out there in the contest and see them ride against some of the strongest talent in the industry. Jeff and Kevin both ride with totally different and unique styles, and with the SF contest the course is largely modelled after legendary San Francisco spots, so it’ll be even more interesting to see how they both interpret it.
They will be riding in the Street contest and Kevin will also be in the Streetstyle contest, which is a downhill course on a real San Francisco street that they close down and add obstacles too. BMX Street semi-finals begin on Friday with finals on Saturday, and Streetstyle on Sunday. The events will be live streamed online, as well as airing on TV on NBC. Check out the schedule here, and we’ll be posting more later this week.
After working for many years on his recent Deadline part, Kevin went straight back to work for The Hunt BMX video contest. The semi-finalists are in and Kevin made the list. The world premiere will be held on October 29th, 2013 in Long Beach, California, so if you’re anywhere near there make it out for the premiere and find out who is the lucky winner.
Take a break in the middle of your week and enjoy both Varsity promos again from Kevin Kiraly.
Just like our Van Island Getaway video we put on Vimeo last week, we just uploaded Kevin’s Varsity promo from last week to our Vimeo account too. If you weren’t able to watch it in some countries, or just prefer one player over the other, it’s up there on both now for the world to see. Press play and watch Kevin get the word out about his Varsity frame as he lays down opposite and switch tricks all over. Go get your Varsity frame in stores worldwide now!
Not only did Kevin land on the prestigious list of the 5 best looking men in BMX, he’s also in our latest ad in Figuré numero six, which is out today throughout France. The ad shows off the same kit that Kevin rides: his signature Varsity frame, CKS forks, Tabarnak bars, and our new Network wheels. The ad may be in french, but you don’t need a translator to understand an opposite feeble to whip. Go track down a copy from Figuré BMX Magazine, and big thanks to Unleaded for holding things down for us out there!
