Check out a nice collection of photos Vince Perraud has shot with a few of the Fit guys filming in Spain the past few days.
“We’re big fans of Vincent Perraud‘s work around here, so we’re awfully amped he’s on the road capturing our Fit lads in Barcelona this week. Van Homan was already going to Barcelona to judge X Games, so Stew Johnson decided to hop a plane to Spain, import a couple of Fit’s finest Europeans in Ben Lewis and Florent Soulas, and there you have it. The Dream Team.”
While still rehabbing down here in Texas, Brett made it out to the Alliance skatepark last night and filmed a little line that made its way on to his Facebook page today. Amazing to see his coordination back to the point of being able to do roll out of a fakie. Hell yeah Brett, keep it up!
After completing a ride from Florida all the way to Pennsylvania, the locals from The Wheelmill skatepark welcomed Mike Cottle to his new home in Pittsburgh with a jam benefitting the Rickey Bates Banned Together charity. Cottle raised over two grand making the month-long, two thousand mile journey in the name of his good friend Rickey Bates. If you’ve got some time, have a look at the Cycling Passage blog to get a look at a bunch of photos and updates from the entire trip.
Matt Ray comes through with basically a split edit of himself. One minute he’s at the Animal House in a helmet and gloves doing double bars to footjam and the next he’s in the streets in a tall tee doing trucks to smith.
Skull Candy gave Rob Wise, Hucker and Dennis Enarson plenty of time to put their headphones to use on a 1200 mile trek from Utah to Oklahoma. Being in a car for so long probably had these dudes itching to ride and when they did, things got loose. Highlights include Dennis Enarson hop three’ing a 45lb pound bike, Rob Wise jumping over a baby and Hucker killing it on Mat Hoffman’s ramp. After watching this, it’s pretty easy to see why he got an invite to Dew Tour vert and mini mega this year. “Hucker, you don’t have to live up to your name, bro!”

Holy shit, all the respect in the world goes out to this kid Julian Molina from Colombia, straight killing it with one leg on a bike that looks like it could easily win that Alienation giveaway. This is seriously amazing.
Let’s be real, there’s a pretty short list of guys you’d be genuinely stoked to see a self-filmed edit from and Johnny Devlin has gotta be near the top of that list. In true DIY fashion, he put in a couple of sessions at a dope little slab spot and came away with some amazing clips. Shoutout to Shadow for always keeping Johnny rollin’.
And just in case you missed the his first solo session edit, you can check it out here.
S&M and Alienation‘s Natalie Noble has had some bad luck recently, breaking and re-breaking her collarbone filming a couple of clips for this edit. Check out what she was able to get done and look for her to be back on her bike in a few months.
Ben Hucke and Shawn McIntosh face off in a round of Oregon themed BMX trivia. Does Ben have any idea what the state bird is or what animal is on the flag? Does Shitty know when Blueprint came out? I probably wouldn’t have been able to concentrate with noodles on the stove either. And so you have something to watch later, you can check out the full Blueprint video after the jump as well.
Get your first look at the 2014 Kink completes in these new videos breaking down all the parts and specs. If you’ve got a kid, cousin or nephew who wants to ride just like you, it’d be a good look to hook them up with one of these dope new completes. Check out the other models after the jump.

Ryan Nyquist made a trip down to SoCal for a day of shredding trails at Heath Pinter’s and Stephen Murray’s Stay Strong compound. Looks like it was a super fun day of riding with the homies. Tons of cameos in this one from the likes of Gary Young, Corey Bohan, Hucker, TJ Ellis, Anthony Napolitan, Cory Nastazio, Big Daddy and more.
Up until now, Primo‘s iconic Wall tire always looked something like this, but thanks to Tony Neyer they’ve received a modern makeover and are ready to don your ride as his signature WLT. Check out Tony crusing the streets of Long Beach to break em in and look for these in your local shop or mailorder soon.
Stoked to see Dig just posted the interview they did with Steven Hamilton a couple issues back. It’s been awesome to see him on the comeback trail in the past year, culminating with an amazing final section in Animal’s QSS #5. This is definitely a good read, setting the record straight about everything from his top tube size over the years to his interview in the first issue of The Albion.
“The situation with that for me was I didn’t know anything about the magazine; it was the first issue. He (Steve Bancroft) kept trying to get me to have an interview, and I really didn’t want to, because I didn’t know what the magazine was going to be about. The guys at Federal kept asking me to do it. They were my sponsor, and I figured it was my job to have an interview in the magazine. They said Mat Hoffman was having an interview in there also, so I thought that was pretty cool. I didn’t go in a hundred percent on it. I didn’t know the dude, and I had no idea about the magazine. It could have turned out to be some crappy magazine, so I gave him like 50 percent on it. I went out and rode for him, but he said the pictures weren’t very good. It was also freezing cold. It was funny that he wanted to come to Ohio in the middle of the winter to shoot a street interview. But I thought it was cool to do something different, but apparently he didn’t like it.”
Check out the full interview and all the photos from the mag here.
