Q&A: Christian Rigal / BMX-MTB

Photo – Anthony Smith

I’ll start off by saying that I love Christian Rigal’s Still United part. I suggest giving that a watch for sure. Having known Christian as a serious rail slayer has made his recent transition into MTB all the more interesting to me. How did this happen? Either way, I’m stoked that he’s stoked.

Click below for a Q&A with Christian about his transition into MTB. Don’t worry, he’s still stoked on BMX.

Fuck Benetton!

I knew these guys were up to something when they came through Austin.

From Etnies:
Through their collective group of progressive riders, Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams and Geoff Slattery, etnies and United Bike Company joined forces to create an entire line of footwear, apparel and bikes together. The collection mixes in primary colors that tie the apparel’s bright graphics with the footwear’s bright pops of color in the contrast stitching to the spokes of the bikes wheels. This collaboration, with the brands’ riders, comprises the United Colors of etnies.

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!?!?!

This time, we’ve called on Ride BMX’s own Ryan Fudger. Click below to read what he had to say.

Insta-Gallery: Etnies X Cinema in Portland

Over the summer, the etnies and Cinema crews rented an apartment in Portland for 10 days and proceeded to grace the city with their 20″ mastery. The crew consisted of Corey Martinez, Chase Dehart, Tony Neyer, Sean Sexton and Dakota Roche.

Evidence of said 20″ mastery can be SEEN RIGHT HERE.

In addition, we have a gallery of this trip that Povah compiled of Instagram pics from all of the crew. Click below to check that out.
