Jonathan Davis was mobbing around the course like a bat out of hell, crushing everything that lied in his wake. His motorcycle helmet w/ the fuck the world decal really helped set the tone for what to expect from his riding. JD pulled one of the craziest tricks of the day when he double peg stalled the huge wallride in front of the judges booth. He was one of the few people to hit the wallride from quarter to quarter.

Posting shit about myself is always strange, but I had some screen shots from the 2013 Ride + Style video I made and figured I’d post them up anyways. Last weekend was too good. It was real rad to have everybody in town at the same time. Our house was pretty hectic to say the least. People fell asleep wherever they could find the space. There needs to be more events like this, it’s a good excuse to get all the homies together. Check out more screen shots below. Read more
Joe McKeag’s transition game is so dialed, he really brought the heat at this year’s Red Bull Ride + Style. His spin tricks are so quick that if you blink at the wrong time, you might miss them. I can’t say this enough, big thanks to Zane Meyer and Omar Sebai for doing such a good job covering the event. You can thank them for these screen shots I’ve been posting. Joe was the only one to hit the hip on the big box, which he blasted a huge tabletop on (check below). Read more
Elliott Milner really stepped it up at this year’s Red Bull Ride + Style hitting clean lines and busting tricks on obstacles that not many people would touch. His 360 going backwards up the wave was too slick (check below). The video Wolfdrawn recently put out of him is one of the sickest fixed freestyle parts to date. He finished 3rd this year, and is definitely someone to keep your eye on. Read more
Mike T. Schmitt and the announcer for the Golden State Warriors were the Master of Ceremonies at the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. He kept it real interesting with all the hilarious commentary on the riders. His inside knowledge on everybody over the years definitely payed off that day as he talked about my cat Stella, Devon “the people’s champ”, and how he spent christmas w/ the Santos family one year. I had so many people come up to me after the event and say how much they loved Mike on the mic. Definitely need to have him as an MC next year.
Kenny Arimoto came out the gate with one trick on his mind. He hit the hubba, pointed over at the judges booth, and made his way to the top of the big wallride. I don’t know what he was thinking, but he’s a maniac for hopping into that bank without a moment of hesitation. He really got the crowd pumped with this one. Read more
Steven Jensen, Jaoa Danaikrit, and Dew Sippawit were all throwing tailwhips at the 2013 Red Bull Ride + Style. Jensen has those ninja kick whips down nice like, it’s a wonder how he’s able to do them on flat. The thai dudes killed it and brought some unique tricks to the table, whips and nose manuals being just a few of them. Check out the photo below of Jaoa doing one on the big box. Read more
Justin “Congo” Mitchell was crushing shit during the races at the 2013 Ride & Style. Not only did he snap his chain and go OTB at the start of his race against Austin Horse. He also ran someone off the top of the berm and into Zane to make up for a similar incident that happened to him last year. Congo, Addison Zawada and I were the only ones to compete in both events, but congo was the only one to wear his cycle shorts while he competed. On that aerodynamic tip. Read more
Joshua Boothby brought his bag of arial acrobatic tricks with him to Ride & Style this year. I think it’s safe to say that he has backflips on lock, but his flare attempts were even more impressive. Does anybody know if there’s been a successful flare done on fixed? I pulled all these screen shots from clips that Omar Sebai and Zane Meyer helped me shoot at the event, be on the look out for the video tomorrow. Click “ReadMore” to check out some more screen grabs. Read more
Omar Sebai came up to SF and stayed at my pad for a few days during Spring Break. Devon Lawson and I took him around and showed him what the San Francisco street game has to offer. It was real sick watching Omar and Valentin ride together. I don’t know what they’re feeding kids these days but it seems to be working. I’ve been seeing a bunch of youngbloods crushing shit lately and really pushing things to the next level. One thing is for sure, these two have some dialed barspins.
