Check out this awesome doc that Bell posted last week about Connor Lodes. It’s rad to see someone in BMX riding for a company that his Dad used to use when he was younger.
This official Dreamline video is really well done. Instead of jam packing it with everything that went down, you get some cool insight and stories from a bunch of people along with some choice riding footage. I know the video thumbnail could possibly make you overlook it, but don”t skip this one.
In addition, Justin Kosman came through with a bunch of extra riding/lifestyle photos he had from the event and below are some assorted facts (Thanks Luke Seile & Ilana Taub).

… I watched it every single night for a week, and regularly after that. I even asked Navaz to hook me up with the soundtrack so I can have the music (thanks Navaz!). Talks Is Cheap is one of my favorite videos of all time. It's equal parts great riding mixed with Navaz' production touch. Modern day classic.
The full official video is now online. Enjoy.
See what happens during the latest ODSY-VISION getaway with Odyssey/Empire riders Aaron Ross, Tom Dugan, Sean Sexton and Tom Smith.

It”s been a minute since we”ve had a nice big feature interview on the site, and I”m happy to change all that with this new piece on Mike Escamilla. Mike ( AKA Rooftop ) has had a powerful and interesting BMX presence for some time with plenty of video parts and photos to prove it. Never one to bite his tongue while simultaneously probably putting his foot in his mouth, it”s always interesting to hear what Mike has to say. His riding and history says the rest.

This section still gets me hyped to ride. If you have never seen it then you should change that now.
This ones got Garrett Reynolds in it. All you need to know.
Fully, fully, fully digging this series so far.
Surely one of the finer BMX videos to come out in recent memory (in DVD form). Kink's Squash It is now online in full for you to feast your eyes on. I could conjur up some slick wording to express how much I like this video, but I won't. I really like this video. Done.
While I can watch it all the way through, I'm rolling with Doyle, Hittle, Sexton and Hamlin as my faves. Good work all around though.

The Kink dudes recently hit the road to gather footage for upcoming rider parts that are dropping later this year. Chad Osburn, James Steele, Aaron Smith, and Dan Coller have been working on projects since Squash It filming ended, so be on the lookout for those.
Matt Miller was on hand to shoot everything with a disposable, so shout out to him.

In this episode, Corey Martinez lures Tony Neyer onto his rolling BMX cavalcade of bad-assery. Plus some other stuff.
BROCAFLOKA! BROCAFLOKA! BROCAFLOKA!
I thought this was awesome, so I yoinked it from KC Badger's Instagram. KC “wood burned/engraved casino bewertungen all the Dreamline riders names on pine wood slices, also engraved a stump/post game to choose the riders heats”. Cool stuff.
The Nyquist 4 piece bars are classic.
I've been looking forward to this Ride & Seek series.
This first episode eases you into the whole thing and looks to be well done and promising.
Remember that time that Red Bull put on an incredibly unique dirt contest in Mexico and forgot to document it? Well, luckily Corey Bohan filmed an episode of his Red Bull series there to give you a feel for it all.
Enjoy episode 2 of Hanging Foul.
