Patrick Kelly recently challenged Adam Banton to a Game Of BIKE. What resulted was a ferocious battle to the death between two fearless, front brake wielding maniacs. Thanks a ton to Patrick for filming this for us.
“I moved to Arizona a few months ago for grad school and Adam has been living there for a few years as a pro rider. We ride together a few times per week at Chandler, not just because of the front brake thing, but because he’s one the funniest, most sarcastic dudes I’ve ever met and still loves riding at 39 years old. As for the game of BIKE, we figured we both had plenty of tricks to keep it interesting (like the manual to skid down the ramp) so it wouldn’t just pigeonhole us into doing nosepicks on the quarter pipe. I was surprised how long it took us honestly. Between all the bullshitting and joking around, filming took us 2 hours, but it was all fun.”

This dropped approximately 2 weeks ago but managed to fly somewhat under the radar despite the fact that Jack Kelly is undeniably one of the best grind wizards currently on two wheels. There are so many absurd crankarm and icepick combinations in here. Cooper Brownlee put it all together for Colony, thanks a ton to those dudes for letting us re-up it, follow Colony, Cooper and Jack on Instagram:
Paul Ryan brought his signature tech moves to the Unit 23 skatepark in Dumbarton, Scotland and filmed one hell of an edit. Lots of dope stuff in this including some of the best switch whips in the game!
Alex Kennedy, Bruno Hoffmann and Greg Layden recently spent 3 days riding and killing spots around Prague using the local Metro system as transport. As you could expect from these dudes, the riding is amazing! AK does the smoothest feeble 3 I’ve ever seen and throws down an incredible move at the end!
Here it is: 30 minutes of the Boqer crew in Spain. I’ve watched 8 minutes so far and they managed to find 2 skateparks which is exactly 2 more than we managed to find there during the month we spent in Barcelona.
If all you saw from NORA Cup was a bunch of blurry Instagram photos, Ride hooked it up with a video highlighting everything that went down that night. As always, they brought out a legendary group of presenters and it was awesome to see pioneers of all the categories giving cups to the dudes pushing it now. This is definitely the best way to end Texas Toast weekend!
Last month three German BMX shops faced off in Shadow‘s first KIL Shop Battle, seeing which team could come up with the best video centered around the now-famous coffin ledges. With a unique look and a handful of Germany’s best riders including Bruno Hoffmann, Daniel Tunte, Felix Prangenberg, the Parano Garage team easily took the win. In case you missed it the first time around, here’s it is again.

Just a little reminder that Cultoween 2014 is going down tomorrow at the Vans park in Orange, California. If you’re in the area, it’ll be a free session with free food, giveaways and a chance to ride with a few Cult Pros. Check the full flyer after the jump.
Pete is one of those dudes that is always down to go ride at any given moment, day or night, and routinely makes fun of anyone who wants to stay in and chill so it doesn’t surprise me at all to hear that he shot this new video for WTP while waiting for a delayed flight home to Wales. Pegless Pete is in full effect in this one, no disrespect to Peg Pete but the no peg version is my favorite Pete no doubt. Butter smooth, high tire pressure, no music, slow nose wheelies, and a sharp eye for new lines at old spots make this worth your time.
Andre has the trick list of a skatepark cyborg but his style makes this 100 percent watchable and even entertaining, which is something I don’t say too often about park videos. Big flip dropin, 3 whip to whip back, barspin flair, off axis 900. On paper, it looks alright, but what set this video above and beyond most park edits for me was Andre’s super loose semi-huck approach to these tricks. You can tell he’s pushing his riding because he goes a few feet higher than most riders, eats a ton of shit and when he pulls the trick, he looks super happy to be alive and rolling away. I don’t want to make it sound like he has bad style, either, quite the opposite. Definitely a breath of fresh air to see a park rider who isn’t so dialed it looks boring. Also worth noting that filmer Scott Connor managed to shoot this with a fractured knee on crutches.
Today I’m hyped to bring you this amazing new web video featuring one of S&M‘s Canadian riders, Andrew Schubert. This video is full of tons of amazing tricks but I was most impressed by his insane over smith to ice skills, a trick that very few riders have really messed with aside from Dan Lacey. Thanks to 1664, S&M’s Canadian distro for helping make this happen too.
“Shot throughout Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, and Edmonton, Canada between the months of February to October 2014
Massive thanks to these guys, could not have made this happen without them.

Thanks to everyone at S&M Bikes and everyone at 1664distro for the support.”
The final section of the Division Project featuring Anton Ayres is now online! Anton is a fucking grind wizard/god and came up with some amazing clips for his part. You are probably gonna yell at your screen a bunch of times while watching this! You can peep the whole video by following this link. Filmed and edited by Cooper Brownlee.
Jason Phelan submitted through this really awesome video of him and his buddies Hector Spencer Wood and Joe Bailey roasting some UK bowls. The riding is sick and there’s a lot of insane lines featured in this!
The second round of the Harvester Bikes x Merritt street jam went down a few days ago near Toronto, Canadao and it looks like it was a success. Lots of great riding in this from all the local riders who showed up!
