Congrats to Dillon Lloyd for taking second place in the Red Bull best trick contest at Simple Session this past weekend and for making it into the finals and finishing 14th overall. The list of riders was stacked as always for Simple Session and Dill killed it. Check out a few wild tricks from his finals runs in the edit below from Ride BMX and be sure to watch both him and Brandon Webster throw down some crazy moves during the Best Trick contest over on the Red Bull site here. You can also check out all of the finals on the Red Bull site here.

Jack Leonard, part of our Young Guns squad, and the rest of the London, Ontario crew have been working on this DWOK Mixtape for a while now and it just dropped in full the other day. Jack has a ton of dope clips in here along with the rest of the dudes and he also edited the whole thing. This rules from start to finish so press play and enjoy!
Both Dillon Lloyd and Brandon Webster are on their way to Estonia for Simple Session 14 today. Be sure to catch all the action live at www.session.ee and the finals at www.redbull.com/bike and cheer the dudes on!
We just posted team pages for both Chijioke Okafo and Brandon Webster, swing by the Team section now to check out their interviews and some photos.
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!

It’s not much a secret after yesterday’s ‘Nocturnal Vol. 2′ edit featuring Brandon Webster on a freshly built Borato V3 but we’d now officially like to welcome Brandon Webster to the MacNeil team! Brandon has been blowing up like crazy over the last couple years and we couldn’t be happier to have him as part of the crew. His humble attitude combined with some of the wildest riding is a deadly combination and the fact that he’s already good friends with some of the team makes everything that much better. This welcome edit was filmed over the course of a few nights at Joyride 150 Bike Park but watch out for tons more from Brandon to come and go follow him on Instagram at @webster_bmx!
Filmed and edited by Jeremy Deme.
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.
