Hit Ride BMX for a rad interview (and a bunch of great photos) with Gary Young. Also, be sure to check out his part in Vans’ Illustrated video.
Ride BMX has a Q&A/Bike Check with the one and only Chris Childs up on the site. Click HERE to check it out.
Our very own Gary Young graces the cover of the current Ride BMX with a timeless tabe. Be sure to grab a copy.
This is probably one of the most fundamental street tricks there is and hands down one of the most fun to do. Watch the video and let Garrett show you how it’s done.
Aaron Ross has a fairly in-depth bike check of his splatter paint Motoross build over at Ride BMX. Follow this LINK to see Aaron’s bike. Getting anxious for the Motoross? We have it arriving sometime in April, so have your local bike shop pre-book one from Full Factory. Not in the USA then contact the distro in your country HERE. Watch Aaron’s jelly bean video below.02Dec 201318Nov 2013
Gary Young knows quite a bit about blasting airs on quarterpipes. Ride BMX does an extensive How-To with Gary about all the little tricks and details of properly taking your airs out above the coping. Good luck!26Oct 2013
Texas Toast 2013 is now a memory…a very good one, but still just a memory. So, we are doing a recap of all the photos of the team at Toast. There’s photos of Gary Young, Jake Seeley, Erik Elstran, Jim Cielencki and Chris Childs. The dudes all killed it. All the above photos are from all the media outlets that covered the event including Ride BMX, Dig BMX, Vital BMX, BMX Union, Red Bull and Dan’s Comp. See you next year!25Oct 2013
Texas Toast 2013 was one of the best feeling events of 2013. In fact, I would say it could be one of the best events since the Metro / Backyard Jam events of the early to mid 2000’s. It reaffirmed all the reasons why we ride BMX bikes. There was a sense of bliss in the air, the weather was great and the riding was (of course) out of this world.
Chris Childs really added to this vibe with his carefree style. The above clip happened late in dirt finals on Sunday. The riders were judged not on tricks alone, but an overall feel that included how much fun the rider was having and how much energy they brought to their fellow riders and the crowd. The energy levels of the finals just kept getting higher and higher with each run. Tricks were even done on the drop in and the long and low set. Tricks that shouldn’t have been done, but they were. There was this sense of an every increasing energy as the time was running out.
When Chris 360ed the last jump backwards or in reverse(whatever you want to call it), it was so unexpected. In an early run, he jumped it backwards, but when the 360 happened later, you knew you saw a special moment. You could hear “Are you kidding me?” over the mic and it’s safe to say everyone felt the same way.
Thanks to Ryan Fudger and Ride BMX for the video clip.
