Huge thanks to everyone who voted for the winner of this contest! It looked like there was a few people who voted more than once, but overall we were blow away by how many people put their pick in! At almost 300 comments, this was the most commented post ever in Defgrip history!! There was a lot of votes for each dude, but Vincent Perraud came threw with the win!! We have Vincent’s wallpaper ready for download in few different sizes as well as iPhone size, so click the jump and get a new wallpaper… We will also have all the other entries available for download later this week… Again, huge thanks to everyone who submitted a wallpaper and to everyone who voted. We have a few more contest lined up right away, so get ready!!
With the help of Nigel and the Defgrip crew, we have picked the top three for the wallpaper contest. Rather than having us pick the winner, we wanted to leave it up to you. You can check out the top three after the jump and who ever has the most comments by Monday morning (est) will be the winner! All you have to do is leave the persons name in the comments and please only comment once. Thanks!!!
Somehow I misplaced the above wallpaper from Ilyas Z that he submitted for the Nigel Nike 6.0 contest. We haven’t quite picked a winner yet, so I wanted to make sure Ilyas’ entry made it on the site… We also received a few additional wallpapers after the contest deadline. They are not eligible, but you should definitely check them out.
Here’s the trailer for Nike 6.0’s Partners in Crime web edit series, which was edited by Rich Wilson. Basically, I’m told there will be a total of 5 edits that will hit every other week and feature the 6.0 Euro riders in pairs according to sponsor. Should be a treat.
Also, the Partners In Crime site will go live on Friday, so be sure to check that out too.
Just a quick reminder that the Nigel/Nike 6.0 contest ends at the end of the day tomorrow. We’ve a bunch of great entries so far and it’s definitely going to be hard to pick a winner. We’ll post all the entries on the site on Thursday, so if you want to win some dope shoes, get designing!! If you missed it, you can check out all the details about the contest here.

Details are sparse, but I can tell you that I may or may not be in attendance.
Nike 6.0 has two new commercials, featuring Garrett Reynolds and Nigel Sylvester, that ran on NBC and FuelTV during the Portland Dew Tour. They are both for the 6.0 Clothing campaign and go along with the photographs by Todd Selby that we got a preview of a few weeks back. The spots were created by Sandy Montana and Adam Long, who worked on a bunch of the motion graphics in the Nike’s Writing On The Wall video.
You can check out both of the commercials after the jump along with a few questions with the producer, Colin Brown, about the concept, filming and the whole duel screen effects.
