This isn’t a Press Rewind, Chris Doyle is indeed riding for Camp Three Clothing in 2014.
“CAMP THREE would like to officially welcome Chris Doyle to the team. As a member of the original C3 team from the late 90′s/early 2000′s, we always considered Chris a “Lifer” and a Brother. We can’t begin to express how stoked we are to officially announce his return to the team. If you’re gonna build a house you better have the foundation right and we couldn’t think of a better rock solid foundation than Chris. Known as one of the most respected guys in BMX, we’re proud to have him representing our brand and the PA BMX scene.”
I met Zach Lindig a few years ago at one of the parks he rides in this edit and even from then you could tell this kid was good. I haven’t seen him in awhile, but that obviously hasn’t stopped him from progressing. If BMX was THC, Zach’s gone off that wax and he ain’t comin’ back.

What started as a product promo quickly turned into an intensely personal project for Dan Foley after parting ways with Premium at the end of last year. The resulting video is everything we love about Dan’s riding: the style, the speed and the dedication to go out and ride even if no one else is there. Dan’s been killing it since before any of us knew his name, so lets hope he doesn’t remain without the support of another bike company in 2014.

A couple days ago we saw Albert Mercado and Mariano Santiago shredding this San Diego area plaza and today we get to see John Stafford killing the place for Blunted Athletics and East County BMX. Psyched on the lines at :27 and 1:07. If only all skatepark edits were this enjoyable, shoutout to Camp Lo!
Get the scoop on how Jason Enns got hooked on BMX in the latest Rare Air video from Crooked World. Pretty cool to hear a bonafide legend talk about sweating the local ripper and being scared to jump a set of doubles back in the day. Between flipping through ninja magazines and wrestling magazines, I’m glad BMX Plus! stood out most to the young Enns.
WeThePeople‘s Tim Story built himself fresh Pete Sawyer signature Sterling frame and took it down to his local to break her in. Nothing too crazy in this, just a chill afternoon session on one good looking bike!
You could say that there are two types of riders: guys that throw the bars and guys that don’t. If you want to part of the later group, take some tips from Fitbikeco‘s newest Pro, Dan Conway, in this how-to. Also, you should be able to catch your bars with Dan’s new signature Savage grips this summer!
If you’ve seen Hoang Tran’s GUTI Section more than a few times, you’ve definitely had the guitar riff from Gun’s “Race With The Devil” stuck in your head at some point. This video details the history of the band and the song, how they got the rights to it and re-recording it specifically for the video. While it seems a lot of “cleared music” is just plucked from a random shitty music library, Subrosa really went above and beyond to get the music for Get Used To It.
“Check out this different style edit from Subrosa. We got a chance to sit down with Paul Gurvitz from the band Gun and Three Man Army about what went into the remaking of the song “Race With the Devil” for our full-length video Get Used To It.
This was the first artist we approached in the process of getting clearance for all the music in the video, and it turned out to be a really cool story. Instead of simply just using the existing song, he re-recorded a version just for Hoang Tran’s G.U.T.I. section!”
Pat Casey, Zack Warden and Drew Bezanson had themselves a fine Tuesday, sessioning Pat’s backyard ramp, some tacos and going on a full pipe adventure, all while rocking Fox‘s new Mainline softgoods collection.
The Shadow Conspiracy was repping heavily at Simple Session this year with Trey Jones, Lahsaan Kobza, Simone Barraco, Joris Coulomb, Paul Ryan and winner Drew Bezanson in the mix all weeeknd. This dude Ryys did a really good job covering these guys, giving us a look at a bunch of stuff that wasn’t in the other practice videos or wasn’t thrown in runs. Between our First & Only edit that dropped yesterday and this one, I think we can call it a wrap on Simple Session edits for 2014!
Aaron Smith, Connor Lodes and Kris Fox all bring the heat in this promo for their new signature stems from Demolition. Psyched on Aaron’s long ass ice, Connor’s fakie pegs to fakie nose and Kris going fast as always and coming through with some wild transfers.
Bobbie Altiser, Polly and bossman Clint Millar combine forces and footage to showcase their front brake prowess in this new edit from Colony. Even if you dismiss brakes altogether, its undeniable that some of this footage is so crazy. Awesome to see Colony staying dedicated to to offering forks with mounts for almost ten years now.
“We’re one of the few brands who still make forks with brake mounts these days, always have, always will. To celebrate this fact we compiled a bunch of front brake clips from Clint, Polly & Bobbie. Some new, some older but all showing good use of the front brake. It’s something we feel very strongly about & will always offer within our product range. Forks with brake mounts are here to stay & we’re helping that one bike at a time.”
Shadow teammates Albert Mercado and Mariano Santiago took advantage of an empty San Diego area skatepark, only having to dodge a few puddles to get a good little session in. You’re only two clicks away from seeing Albert do a g-turn to smith!
Check out this quick demo of Eclat‘s new E-Tool, their take on the all in one BMX multi-tool. It features an 8/10mm wrench, 15mm spoke wrench, 19mm U brake wrench, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm hex bit and of course, a 17mm socket. To get an even closer look at the E-Tool and all its contents, head over to eclatbmx.com.
Gone are the days of a video premiering and having to wait weeks or months to see it for yourself. Cult‘s Am video $MALL TALK premiered last night and they’ve already got DVD’s in stock and digital versions ready to grace your downloads folder. Hit the Cult webstore to cop the DVD and check the sidebar of cultcrew.com for the digital downloads. At only $4.99 for the DVD, $3.99 for the HD download and only $1.99 for the iPhone download, you can’t afford to sleep on this!
Brian Hunt gives you a look around his local stomping grounds here in Austin, getting sessions in at a couple skateparks and a set of trails. Glad that first crash didn’t take him out, that looked like it sucked!
At the end of January Freed Bikes threw a jam at Gordy’s Bicycles, inviting the locals out to ride and chill with the team, including Andy Smith, Corey Foster, Demarcus Paul and River Waldren. Shoutout to the backflip to fakie and that 540 cab!
Big congrats goes out to Andrew Castaneda who got the bump to Cult‘s pro team after the $MALL TALK premiere tonight. This comes after years of being down and what’s sure to be a heavy part in Cult’s new Am video, proving that hard work and loyalty definitely pay off!
Until we get QSS #6 on DVD, The Price Is Wrong remains in heavy pre-ride rotation at our house. This team mix has a bunch of dope clips from Jeff Kocsis, Chase D, Ralphy Ramos and Garret Hoogerhyde that could have easily ripped the internet a new one on its own, so I was psyched to see Animal give this section some more shine time. While we wait ages for companies to drop full length videos and watch others blow their wad too early with web edits, the QSS series has found a really nice middle ground.
Get an inside look at this year’s Simple Session with 2013 winner Kevin Peraza. This will give you a good idea of the whole experience of the event, including some snow biking, tubing and partying, instead of just run highlights and recaps. It will be interesting to see the next part of this and find out more about that reallllly scary crash he took in finals.
Get a look at Jake Seeley’s mean green signature Sunday Broadcaster in this new bike check slideshow. This matte green color is currently available in a super nice complete and the frames themselves should be available in April.
With the exception of guys like Tony Hamlin and Paul Ryan, most edits of dudes under five feet usually skip the front page and go straight to The Oven, but Ben Kavanaugh goes a little too hard for that treatment. He recently spent some time at Woodward and from the looks of it, had an awesome few days at camp, racking up enough footage for a new DK edit. This kid shreds!
If you’ve been watching arguably the best QSS to date on your computer for the past month, you can now take it to the TV with a DVD copy. In addition to the Ben Lewis, Mark Gralla, Japanimal trip and Chocolate Truck sections, ALL of Animal’s web content from 2013 is also included…for only $5! Head over to shop.animal.com to cop that.
Get a look at what went into building the portable ramps for Fly Bikes‘ Coastin Adventure in this new short. Certified transition masters Ruben Alcantara and Sergio Layos took on the construction themselves at Fly’s new studio in Vigo, Spain and judging from all the wild footage, they were smooth and held up well. This would also be a good time to have another look at the video from the epic Coastin Adventure.
You can download this video, check out photos and desktop wallpapers on the Coastin microsite.
Check out a bunch of Garrett Reynolds and Colin Varanyak’s footage Steve-O chopped up from the live feed and practice sessions at Simple Session. Both Colin and Garrett repped hard and rode really well all weekend, making for a dope highlight reel.
The latest edition of Tioga’s Steady Rollin series takes us inside FBM headquarters to check out their awesome warehouse ramp setup. Catch clips from some of the crew and a bunch of friends on some super fun looking ramps. After this, you can also check out a bunch of the best footage from past Steady Rollin videos in a redux below.
