I shot video in between heats of everybody during the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style, but managed to catch a couple photos of Steven Jensen practicing foot jams during warm ups. He wooed the crowd by doing pogos in footjam for a minute, before riding fakie down the other side. Steven is the master of the funky combos and technical tricks, he’s always getting weird and pulling tricks out of his ass. Watching him ride continues to amaze me, and will always inspires me to be more creative.

I can’t even begin to put into words how stoked I am to take 1st place in the Freestyle event at the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. It was real rad to see so many international riders out here for the competition. This photo of Kenny Arimoto blasting me w/ the cooler came out too good. Definitely a refreshing way to cool down after a hot day of riding in SF. Check out the rest of Zach Franzen’s photo collection HERE.

I hit this wallride to gap back into the street on my commute home from downtown everyday. Commuter tricks are the best part of riding Fixed Freestyle. I spend more time crushing through traffic and hitting stuff along the way than I do riding spots. Photo Credit : Mike T Schmitt
There’s nothing better than mobbing around w/ your friends, it’s probably the best part about riding. Hitting obstacles as they come, and crushing shit along the way. Mike and I are constantly exploring Golden Gate Park by linking together different trails. We’re always stumbling upon new spots in locations we thought we knew well. My good friend and roommate Bryan Dempler popped off this photo of us crushing down one of the many off beaten paths.
Here’s a photo of Jeff Dempler back when he first got on Destroy Bikes. Everytime we roll to his house, we hit this oversized curb cut along the way. Commuter tricks are the best part of riding Fixed Freestyle. Busting moves on the go helps keep things interesting, especially if you find yourself riding the same routes everyday.
Yesterday the homies Chris Marino & Scott Lyman came through with a couple Sony FS700′s equipped w/ Zeiss lenses to kick it & catch some clips of Anthony Combs, Mike Schmitt, and I. We spent the day filming in the SOMA blasting off fireworks, getting burned, and causing a ruckus. Shooting everything at 120-240 fps, we should have some pretty sweet slow mo shots coming your way.
I recently picked up a pair of the Cadence Raw Sienna Trousers after most of my jeans blew out. It’s hard to find pants that can withstand a lot of saddle time. The double layer of denim on the ass really helps keep these pants alive, and the 3% Lycra makes me feel like i’m not even wearing anything. Read more
You can tell I dug this photo up from the graveyard, because when is the last time anybody’s seen Forest Parker on seven hundreds? I hit him up to get an exact figure, and apparently he’s only been on 26′s for about 4 months. I don’t know why I feel like he’s been on em’ for ages now. Regardless this shot of him is so tucked that he’s got a seat soul patch going on.
Here’s a photo that Devon Lawson took of me as we were cutting through some back alleyways on our way home one night. We ended up pulling over to cop some photos and session this construction barrier for a while. It was almost like it they made it to be riden. Trick – 180 on half cab off.
While Ed was in town we spent a lot of time cruising around at night and eyeing up spots to come back to later during the day. It’s definitely a good way to check out a spot and dream up some lines before you show up to film.
