We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!
Next up… Bone Deth’s SEAN BURNS!!!!
Stew Johnson has taken on the task of heading up a documentary on Brian Foster, one of the most respected and all around legends of BMX. That’s not blog intro fluff, BF is a cot damn respected BMX legend and awesome individual. The documentary is aptly named, BF-it.
Stew has been secretly (as best as he could) working on this doc for the better part of this year, and the final outcome is fantastic. I tip my hat to Stew for putting BF-it together and to BF for being BF. I have since seen BF-it after sending these questions to Stew and I can’t wait for fans of BMX to see it.

We’re proud to present you with the online premier of Greg D’Amico’s Guy Stuff video part. Click below to check out the goods.
When we started filming for Guy Stuff Greg was one of the dudes who really wanted to do web edits with his footage all the time. He actually made an edit that didn’t go online because I convinced him to wait. You gotta respect a dude that wants to produce for his sponsors, but I’m glad we saved up his footage because now Greg finally has a full section that really shows what he can do on a bike. To say thanks for the support (and thanks from me to Greg for saving his clips) it seemed fitting to put his part online as a branded edit for Subrosa.
Dennis Enarson is one of today’s all around great bike riders. That pretty much sums him up. The fact that he always looks like he’s having a good time is just icing on the cake. Dennis is no stranger to street, riding park, dirt at contests or anything in between. He does it all. Dennis is pretty young, so that means we will see a whole lot more of him. That’s awesome!
Dennis is currently recovering from surgery on his femur, so I got in touch with him about doing an interview. We dig into Dennis’s history, his sponsors and what MARKIT is all about. Click below to read that.
Thanks to Brandon Means for the photos.

Anytime there’s some new Edwin stuff, I automatically want to see it. He is one of my favorite riders, no questions asked. His style and approach to street riding is one to be admired, but hopefully I don’t have to tell you that. He is as important to street riding as pegs are.
Needless to say, this interview seems way overdue, but the timing couldn’t feel better for me.

A big thank you to Bob Scerbo and the Skavenger dudes.
Steve Crandall and the FBM crew are at it again with a new one called “Thousand Yard Stare”, which you can check a preview of by clicking below.
But first, some words from the Cran Man!
Some time ago, after various web edits, mixtapes, and road trip video’s, the FBM crew decided to embark on a journey towards our first full feature DVD in a long while…
Minus the equipment, the budget and the resource that many projects require, we relied solely on the character, creativity, and the sheer talent of the guys who make up FBM, and gave it a shot. No hype, no bells and whistles, and not likely to to appeal to the candy fed mainstream, we proudly put together this new video, featured in this preview.
These are the guys that make FBM so unique, It’s an honor to say I am a part of the group, and to be able to share this with everyone. For us, this is BMX, this is how we live it, and like they say, It’s like you are really seeing beyond, when you have been in the shit for so long, you get that look, the Thousand Yard Stare… Enjoy!
- Steve Crandall
If you enjoy watching a dude who looks like he is visibly having fun on his bike, than you will enjoy this edit of Mike Jonas. You may have seen Mike’s article in the latest DIG, and now you can see what he is all about.
Shout out to Chris McMahon for putting this together for us.
Here’s a cool piece on Miles Rogoish where he discusses riding, filming and how he got to where he is now, mixed in with some great clips from before he broke his collarbone.
Thanks to EVERYONE involved for hooking this up.
Interview by: Tony Ennis
Filmed by: Tony Malouf, Jeff Wescott, Tony Ennis, Garrett Reynolds, JJ Palamere, and Lahsaan Kobza.
When Darryl approached me with idea of hosting a Gabe Brooks Kink edit on here, I said hell yeah! Not only am I aware of Gabe’s abilities, but I know that Darryl wouldn’t put out trash. So here we are.
Speaking of Gabe, one of the lasting impressions of him that will always stick with me, was from the Texas Toast jam. Not only was Gabe taking in all the riding he could, but he also stuck around and helped us break down when most people were gone. I saw him putting tents away, moving stuff and just straight helping anyway he could. Shit like that goes a long way, and didn’t go unnoticed. Even though the Q&A below is pretty gnarly, the dude couldn’t give off a more positive/friendly/appreciative vibe.
Below is a quick Q&A with Gabe that Jay Roe put together.
Gabe Brooks, 24, South Central California.
So you kind of popped back into the scene recently, seemingly out of nowhere. Where were you at and why?
I was incarcerated for murder : )
What type of lifestyle/upbringing and circle of people brought you to the above circumstances?
They Were Gangstas, Dope Dealers and Hustlers!!!
Where did you grow up and what kind of people were you looking up to outside of riding, that kind of lead you down that path?
I grew up smack in the middle of south central Los Angeles and I use to look up to gangstas, pimps and macks!! They were the ones that taught me how to survive. Physically and financially rather.. S/O to sweet tooth.
What brought you back into riding when you got out? Was it something you thought about and missed while away?
The last joe I did, I realized that I couldn’t keep livin the way I did or otherwise, I’ll be in someones cemetery, or locked up for life trying to defend myself and friends.
You seem so focused on riding now, what is it like balancing BMX with the lifestyle you lived outside of it?
It’s weird… Going from trying to take territory, to learning a trick on a bike and channeling my anger on something positive than negative giving me a higher energy. It feels good but odd. I’ve lived 19 years of my life doing stupid shit and I got stupid outcomes.. But that was my life I had to adapt or be weeded out.
One of the first times we hung out, you called someone that answered a cell phone from inside their jail cell. Do you currently have friends and family that are locked up? What’s that like for you and how do you deal with it?
Yeah, I just lost a child hood buddy to the system two moths ago. He has life now for murder. S/O to baby 007. I also have uncles with life and a brother that’s ready to come home after 8 yrs. Life’s been rough and somewhere down the food chain links need to be broken! IT FUCKIN START WITH ME!
I personally feel like you bring a totally fresh and different personality to the Kink family, how is it hanging and riding with the rest of the guys on a daily basis?
They’re just not guys, they’re family. Inspirational riders of people throughout the world, positive individuals, motivators.. I love all of them. They’re my bro’s. And I’ll give anything to ride with them everyday!
Chris Zeppieri hooked us up with this rad AOTC Portland trip edit, which is 9 minutes and features a bunch of people from the Portland area.
In June, CB Coombs and myself (Chris Zeppieri) decided to fly from Boston, MA to Portland, OR on a 2 week trip to visit our good friend Paul Cvikevich. The trip was awesome, met lots of great people and wound up with a ton of footage, check out this edit from the trip.
Huge thanks to Paul, The Take, Shad at Goods, Caleb Quanbeck, and all the Portland locals we met and rode with over the course of the trip. Also check out AOTC 2 available now from Dans Comp, www.aotcbmx.bigcartel.com, and shops all over the country!
Back in May, Nuno and I headed out to England to shoot photos and film the Nike Pool jam. I had no idea what to expect when I was heading there, but the Nike Pool jam ended up being one of the best contest I have ever been to… not only from a riding standpoint, but also the vibe was amazing, everyone was having so much fun, the ramps were amazing, the free food, free beer… I could go on…
Aside from the whole weekend being so much fun, the building and the ramps were amazing for filming. Great colors, interesting architecture, the two floors with windows looking down at the ramps. I was a kid in a candy store. This edit is more of a reflection of the weekend. A montage of a bunch of random stuff. I missed some bangers, filmed lots of random stuff and had a really fun time putting it all together… Enjoy!
Straight up, this came out sick! I was itching to post this Bobby Simmons edit all week, but wanted to hold out for today so it could ride out the weekend. Bobby came through on this, and I’m super thankful for it. Be sure to pick up Still Here if you haven’t.

In this short film documenting Oakley’s Josh Harrington’s trip to the seemingly cold and desolate Northern European state of Estonia for the Simpel Session contest, we experience in his own words the solidarity of self-awareness of traveling to a foreign country, unable to adjust to your surroundings while still having to focus on putting himself in the mindset of riding in front of thousands of people on a BMX bike.
